Tama-Chan: With #1 going away again, we are looking ahead to two Sundays without a "Snuggles on Sunday" post (more like "Shopping in Shibuya" knowing her...). But we DO have one for you today!
I shall, as usual start with myself. I was just so delighted to be reunited with Tommy when #1 let me and Sei-Chan out of the back room yesterday evening!
I also did a lot of snuggling with #1 when we were in the back room:
Sei-Chan, on the other hand, was just waiting to get back onto #1's bed and resume her evening, night-time and early morning cuddles!
Bibi is also a "Bed-Boy" dividing his time between inside and outside the bed. Here he is, sitting on #1, perhaps in a vain attempt to keep her from leaving?!
During the day, he always spends considerable time snuggling with Tommy:
We have recently been asked a number of questions in the comments and thought we would answer them today.
Why is this blog called "The Poupounette": The blog was first started by Tommy and his older brother Sen-Chan, who went to the Bridge in January 2009. Sen-Chan was a total sweetheart and his nickname was "Poupounet" which means something like "sweet little thing" in French. When the idea of the blog came up, we looked for a title in the spirit of "gazette" and thus was created "The Poupounette"!
How are the girls' incisions? They seem to be doing really well. Neither is licking or pulling at the stitches. #1 was a bit worried yesterday when they came out of the back room and started galloping around the house and jumping onto the high beam in the study, but they don't seem to have harmed themselves.
How do we find all our wonderful house-sitters? Mainly through a website! In three years of doing it, we have had one bad experience and many wonderful ones. We really love sitters who come back again and again, such as our Australia friends. The PEI sitters coming this time are friends of friends.
