This weekend, the Three Tabby cats in Vienna, Kashim, Othello and Salome are hosting a CB event to remember those who have left us for the Bridge. We lit candles over at their blog to remember our three "Bridge Boys" but would like to do it here too.
IKKYU, the first one and the fiercest, who shared #1's life for 15 years and on three continents. He left for the Bridge in August 2007:
Sweet SEN-CHAN whose half-brother, Bibi, has inherited the Houdini tendencies! He left us in January 2009 at 18 months:
#1's soul brother YUU-CHAN who left us last September, aged 15 months:
You brought so much joy and you will always be loved and missed. Our thoughts also go out to all our friends who have lost loved ones.
Now..... what you have been waiting for! THE RUN!!!!! Well, it's still there burt it's SO MUCH BIGGER than it was!!!

The work was done by Mr. R and Mr. C under the supervision of ForeQueen Tama:
The end result has added about 2.3 metres (7ft) in width to the existing run. The "interior decorating" has barely started and #1 will be working on it over the coming days and weeks. But there is already a new hammock in place, which has of course been claimed by Queen Tama!
