Tom: as we approach the holidays, we think even more than usual about the ones who went before and how much we miss them. But this is not a time to be sad, so here are our "Bridge Boys" enjoying some adventures during their time with us:
IKKYU, #1's first cat and first Aby, travelled everywhere with her. She always thought that he should have gotten frequent flyer miles! Anyway, here he is relaxing at the cottage in PEI ten years ago:
And he could have given our Tama-Chan some serious lessons in dangling! Here he is in Tokyo in the late 1990s:
Our SEN-CHAN was a real adventurer. You see, he was allowed outside because unless a certain kitty we know, he was a good boy and never went anywhere near the road. And he came back when called!
Here is a favourite shot of #1's:
And another one:
YUU-CHAN was such a people kitty that he never really wanted to stray too far from his #1, but here he is when still very young, discovering the cat run at his breeder's:
And he was pretty good at the dangle too!
And last but not least… Even though she was never officially a member of the Gang per se, our neighbour MADRAC (TOWCB Fernant) was in many ways #1's first dog and so holds a very special place in her heart. Here she is with Sen-Chan:
And being so very patient with a very young (7 months old) me!
So many wonderful memories to treasure always!
