First, in June 2008, came a young sorrel Abyssinian cat called Sen-Chan and a slightly younger English Springer Spaniel called Tom. In October 2008, they were joined by Tama-Chan, a ruddy Abyssinian girl kitten. The three lived so happily together, playing and cuddling in the French countryside with their mistress, known as #1. But in early January 2009, tragedy struck and Sen-Chan went to the Bridge at not yet 18 months. For a while, it was just Tom and Tama-Chan and #1, remembering sweet and gentle Sen-Chan, and the one who came before him, the fierce and noble Ikkyu. But then, in April 2009, a little red furrball, Sei-Chan, joined the family! She was followed in October 2009 by Yuu-Chan, a playful but very mellow little sorrel boy. And then Tama-Chan had kittens and little Bibi, a ruddy male, stayed with us. Sadly, we lost our beloved Yuu-Chan in September 2010, but we soldier on and live and love in our little corner of rural France. And we now have a big little brother in Vidock, a Percheron stallion, a little little brother in Genji, a blue Abyssinian, and a big little sister in Violette, a Percheron mare.
Bibi-Chan: I am very happy to announce that we (finally) have a winner in our Beebsday draw. I apologise that it took #1 so long to get her act together. We picked a random number out of 49 as that was the number of comments and the winners are: THE MEEZERS AND BILLY over at Meezer Tails!
We will be contacting Mama Meezer via FB to get mailing info and will try to get the package in the post this week! There will be a goodie bag in addition to the 2013 Poupounette desk Calendar.
And, as a bonus, you get a gratuitous shot of me, The Beebs!
