Tama-Chan: Firstly, I would like to thank our many, many friends who left sweet comments about Sei-Chan's birthday yesterday. It meant a lot to her, as did her mega-snuggle session with Tommy! She has a little birthday surprise for you but she will tell you about it herself come SEIturday.
I am informed by #1 that I am to be bundled off to Dr. C's later this week for my annual shots. This is not an experience I enjoy, but I also appreciate that it shows that #1 cares for us and wants us to be healthy, so I shall gird my loins, and hang on to my tail!
Now that the Christmas stuff is finally gone, the dining table is once again available for kitty lounging. That tart Genji likes to roll around on it, showing off his tummy, but I like a more demure pose:
Yesterday morning, we actually woke up to sunshine, blue skies and milder temperatures, so #1 gave me a real treat by serving up my breakfast as I like it best, al fresco!
Oh, and following the comments on the subject last week, #1 asked me to please post this photo, taking care to emphasise that the second mat was put in place before those comments!
Our last bit of thankfulness comes with paws still firmly crossed. We were all very worried over the last few days because we heard that our buddy in Prince Edward Island, Leo, was very sick. You may remember Leo from #1's blog posts of last summer. He is a Springer, like our Tommy:
Leo is young, goofy, sweet, and all-around adorable, and we were all so sad when we heard how sick he was, with blood in the lungs and virtually no platelet count. He was being taken care of at Atlantic Veterinary College (the big veterinary school) and even they suggested the kindest thing might be to help him to the Bridge. But Ms. K believed in her boy and today, he is home, his lung looking much better and his platelet count on its way back up rapidly. Hang in there, Leo! We're all rooting for you and want you to be 100% better soon!
