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!!!
