Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Hello everyone. Let me start with something serious today. Several people have expressed through comments on the blog or private messages the inability to vote for my son Bibi in the Balance Beam competition of the Cat Olympics. As far as we are aware, this problem has thus far not affected any Mac users. We thought it might have something to do with which version of Windows is being used, but a quick test revealed this not to be the case. The conclusion is therefore that it is browser related or maybe browser/OS combo related. #1 tested a friend's iPad last night, using Chrome, and the pop-up window was immobile and would not scroll down. She played with it for a while and eventually got it moving but she couldn't tell you how. Anyway, if you are a frustrated Bibi fan and are still eager to vote, you could do so via email to corycatblog at gmail dot com. Bibi is super excited to be in the finals and, as his Mama, I am very proud!

That kind of being proud really takes it out of you, so...

I occasionally do have to open an eye or even two, just to check that everything is running smoothly in the house:

#1 rather likes this shot of me in the hammock by the window. She says I look as though I am smiling angelically, and the wind is going through my ears. Really?

For those of you in need of daily Tommy updates, he continues to do really well. He is putting more and more weight on his hurty foot, and is full of energy and eating really well. As for Violette, her treatment only started this evening as we weren't able to get everything she needed before. Some of it is pretty evil-tasting apparently, but she is getting a very unusual French twist to help it down. She will tell you about it herself later this week!

PS: This week, after Tama-Chan Tuesday, you will also be getting Tama-Chan THURSDAY as it will be my birthday on August 2nd!!!


  1. Lots of things going on at your place!! We are happy Tommy is getting better and purr he continues! We also purr for Violette and look forward to her update. Good luck also to Urey !! Tama, you are such a pretty girl and we look forward to helping you celebrate your birthday !!

    Purrs Tillie and Georgia,
    Tiger,Treasure,JJ and Julie

  2. TWO Tama-Chan days!! It must be MY birthday! *happy rumbling*

  3. Well, purrsonally speaking, I have to wonder if there could ever be too many Tama-Chan days.

    So glad Tommy is on the mend! He'll be flying them ears before we know it!

  4. More hammock photos! We think you are very brave to be up so high. Glad Tommy keeps improving. Make him stay on his bed and not try to get up in one of those hammocks.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  5. It does look like you are smiling and that the wind is blowing through your ears *mol*

  9. Tama-Chan, we like the photo of you by the window, too; and you look very happy and proud of Bibi!

    Lots of news over at your place, we are glad to hear Tommy is improving, bet he wants to be rid of his bandage even if it does have those neat pawprints all over it. Sending our purrs to Violette for her speedy recovery!

    Thanks for the information re voting - for us there is only one contender amongst the finalists - BIBI! I'll tell mom to email the corycat address now (we have Win XP + IE, if that's any help in solving it) Good luck Bibi!!!

  12. Could it also be settings? We're using Chrome with Win 7 and have had no problem voting for the Beebster! We were surprised that he wasn't not farther ahead, as he was the first day we voted!

  13. I love your hammocks, Tama! I'm glad to hear that Tommy is continuing to improve.

  14. Mommy has an iMac and an iPad so we haven't had a problem. I am looking forward to hearing what Violette has to say, poor little girl. And Tommy, so glad you are doing better and better. xox

  15. pretty soon you will be back to normal Tommy
    Benny & Lily

  16. Lots going on at your place. Glad to know things are improving for Tommy, Violette, Urey and heck the whole gang.

  17. Tama-Chan, you are looking lovely today!! We can't wait to celebrate your birthday!!

  18. Some of these browsers are driving us crazy!

  19. Tama-Chan you do look as though a breeze is blowing through your whiskers and tugging at your ears. You look very content indeed!
    Browsers can be so annoying...or is it blogger..something annoying regularly does not permit us to leave comments now! Argh.Blah.
