Frustrated Friday...

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! I hope you are well. We are fine but feeling frustrated. First, we had really bad weather for several days, so #1 couldn't even come out to see us. Then yesterday, she set out to see us and that stupid car broke down again! It broke down only about 500metres from where The Big V and I live, and the very nice gentleman there, Mr. C, came out to tow the big cat, so as to get it out of the road. Then, #1 called the recovery service, and the garage, and the Big Cat is in hospital again. We don't know what it is and how bad it is, and probably wont know until early next week. In the meantime, the very nice people at the garage have lent #1 a very nifty little Fat Panda!

It's just about big enough for #1, Tommy, and some of our equipment, but we are all grateful that she has it! Could we ask for some good thoughts for the Big Cat? #1 is wondering whether it's not going to be Bridge-Bound one day soon…

She did manage to snap this rather nice shot of me as she waited for the tow truck:

And here is one of Mr. Floppy-Ears, Tommy looking all concerned…

Oh, and just to make matters even more frustrating, the UK TV satellite signal has gone dead. Woe, Woe, WOE!


  1. Oh dear. The Big Cat is on trouble again. We will think good thoughts about it although we do like the fat panda cos it's red.

  2. Yikes! That is too many things going wrong!
    We will send along some purrs for the car to be fixed and the TV to come back.
    All you give #1 lots of purrs,woofs and neighs.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure, JJ
    and Angels Tiger and Tillie

  3. Oh, it has been a terrible week, hasn't it? Sending purrs to the Big Cat... it is never a good time for those things to go to the RB!

  4. Ouch - Is the Big Cat in love with the mechanic? Violette you look so serene watching the goings on in the lane.
    Sorry to hear about the UK TV signal going dead too - just be grateful it's not Friday the 13th!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Oh no! I hope the Big Cat will recover quickly!
    And I'm sorry to hear about TV signal going dead :-(
    Tommy does look concerned. I hope everything will be ok soon xoxo

  6. Mechanical troubles are such a bother! But we are sending purrs your way hoping it won't be too bad. That's a very pretty shot of you Violette!

  7. I too am concerned that Big Cat may be Bridge bound.I SO hope not. Violette and Tommy, you cheer us all up!

  8. Dang, I sure hope your weekend turns out to be a good one!

  9. Fortunately, #1 got a car... We wonder if the Big Cat will recover this time. We love the shot of Violette in the field ! Purrs

  10. Peut être temps qu'il prenne sa retraite ce "big cat" ...
    Pas trés amusant les pannes. En plus pas gratuit !
    J'aime bien la tête de Tommy ...
    Bonne soirée.

  11. Oh, no, things are not supposed to go wrong all at the same time!!
    Tommy and Violette are looking quite concerned....we send you good luck that things return to normal soon!!


  12. We hopes all your worries are taken care of soon.

  13. Oh dear, we do hope the Big Cat's vet can fix it all up! Paws crossed for good news.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  14. Oh no...when it rains it pours. :( We hope the car gets fixed quickly and the TV comes back too. BTW, that's a nice picture of you, Violette.

  15. ai yi yi! Not a good way to kick off a weekend...paws crossed that all is fixed, and soon! In the meanwhile, you all should get some extra luvvins...

  16. Violette, you are beauty and elegance!
    Tommy, you have the sweetest face ever. We're sorry to hear about your #1's big kitty. Our mum believes you just can't trust mechanics especially if you are a woman. There are lots of Jag owners blog sites that suggest what else should be taken care of when the engine is apart to save you $€£. Your mum may be very auto savy but ours is not and these sites have helped her a lot.

  17. Mowzers, lots and lots of woes, indeed! That is noooo fun. But we must agree, that photo she snapped while waiting to be towed is GORGEOUS!
