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.
Tama-Chan: I need to start with a little administrative note, Dear Friends. #1 has hurt herself again. Thankfully, it's not the knee this time, so she is mobile, but it is her left wrist. She is right-handed so that makes things easier, but everything is taking much longer to accomplish, and she is feeling rather frustrated. She thinks it is just a bad sprain. Of course it had to happen at the start of a 3-day weekend. Sigh… She is going to see if her GP friend is around. Otherwise, it is in a splint and will hopefully start to improve very soon.
Anyway it just so happens that, a few days ago, she managed to catch on video a major snuggle session I was having with Tommy, so that will be our SoS offering for today. We hope you will enjoy it!
