Genji's Grand Gotcha Monday!

Genji: Greetings to all of my friend worldwide! The Shining Prince, Genji, here and today, I am celebrating my SECOND GOTCHA DAY!!!

It feels as though I have been here, at Poupounette Central, forever, but it was in fact only two years ago today that #1 drove all the way to Orly Airport in Paris to meet me and my breeder, flying in from South West France.

As soon as I met #1, at the airport, I started making biscuits on her:

This is my first venture outside the carrier on arriving home:

She immediately taught me how to use the Mac and told me about the blog:

I made myself right at home very quickly!

Then I met my "Gang-Mates". Here is a photo of me and Tommy taken ten days after I arrived

As for me and The Beebs, well we got into it right away. Fun!

He may be a lot bigger than me, but I am the Shining Prince!

I am SO HAPPY I was gotcha'ed by #1 and the rest of the Poupounette Gang. I am a hugely happy boy and love everyone and everything all the time. #1 says I am the most affectionate kitty she has ever met, both with her and with our visitors. I am just really laid back and never have any complaints about anything!

I am of course very, very handsome!

I like to share all kinds of experiences with #1:

I like to hang out with my siblings too!

And best of all, I have YOU, so many wonderful friends all over the world!



  1. Time flies, Genji - I can't believe it has been two years already! Happy gotcha day!

  2. Happy Gotcha Day Genji! You are as handsome as ever!

  10. We are so happy to share in this day with you Genji!! This is the most important day in a pets life and you sure got a fine family!
    Purrs to all!

  11. Happy Gotcha day, precious Genji! Can it really be two years already??? . We remember your airport photo well. Such a perfect angel, full of love to give his new #1. We've always had a soft spot in our hearts for you, the little new boy. You won us over completely when we saw you making biscuits with your adorable feeties. You've grown into a gloriously handsome mancat and a warm and loving one as well. God bless you always. All of our love to you
    . Mum's giving us extra treats today in your honour.

  12. Noooo WAY!! It is just NOT possible that you are 2 years old ALREADY!! Well, you certainly DON'T look 2! We love all those photos (Mom is especially fond of the one of you making bisquits on #1 that first moment you were with sweet!) watching you grow up fast-forward style!! You are such a lucky, handsome, cool have Chouchou absolutely swooning!! Ah, speaking of which, Chouchou is going to the V E T tomorrow for her lady operation. I think she will be happy (I can say that because after I had my man operation I was and still am MUCH happier!) once she is all over the recovery part. We think of you guys often and we love seeing all the FABULOUS family photos. Yes, we haven't posted on our blog in AGES, but that is not through any fault of our own (paw now pointed at Mom)..we continue being sweet and silly and looking adorable and acting like devils. Ginger and I are the best of pals and Mom has a gazillion photos of just us two together, but she is afraid that they will just bore people to see theme....Ellwood had his man operation about a month ago and he is much happier and HE ACTUALLY STAYS HOME now!! Tiny is fine and is, of course, the QUEEEN of the house...nobody messes with Tiny!! I don't!! Well, Gang, we love you very much and want you to know that we haven't forgotten are the best!! Lots and lots of purrs and headbutts and tailwags from us BadCats & MeenDawgs. Mom sends warm greetings to #1!

  13. Happy happy Gotcha Day
