Manly Monday

Tom: Guess what? Fernant's family went off to Corsica for ten days yesterday, so he is at Camp Tommy for the duration. He still sleeps in his own bed at night, so his pussycat bro, Basha, won't feel lonely, but other than that, he is going to be with us. Here is the scene in the field yesterday:

And at home in the evening:

And #1 has said that we can still do one walk a day with just the two of us so I can run in the big field. Fernant has a tendency to run off so he is not allowed to roam off-leash.

Vidock: Neighs, EverFriend! I have been back in my field for a week, and I was looking forward to seeing Uncle E this weekend. He was planning to come and ride me, but it rained so much that he postponed it, even though it stopped raining Sunday evening. This is what I thought of it all:

When #1 arrived, I was busy snacking in my shelter (where my bale of hay can stay dry). I heard #1 and went straight over to say hello, with a little something dangling from my mouth…

Da Beebs: When we had those few days of lovely weather last week, I spent a lot of time supervising in the run:

I also keep an eye on #1 as she works, and makes sure she doesn't forget that I need cuddles every hour on the hour!

Genji: I know how to look so cute that #1 cannot resists coming over and cuddling me (and by the way, none of us ever uses our claws or teeth. #1 is allowed to cuddle everywhere!).

And I have been doing my share of supervising in the run too!

To finish off, how about this pic of two handsome mancats hanging together?

Have a great week, Everyone!


  1. I was trained when I was a kitten and still with my breeder to be gentle with humans, like you kitties! My roommates did not have such training, however, and Binga is especially bad!

  2. How nice you get to play with Fernant for 10 days!
    Vidock, we giggled at you greeting #1 with hay dangling from your mouth ;)
    Beebs and Genji, you two look good together.
    Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure, JJ

  3. Fernant for 10 days? You should have crazy times then Tommy. It's nice that Fernant keeps his brother company at night. You boys seem to have a great Monday.

  4. It looks like you're going to have a lot of fun for 10 days with Fernant, Tommy ! We understand your disappointment, Vidock, when a nice ride must be cancelled because of the rain ! Good job of snoopervizion in the run,boys ! Purrs

  5. Tommy, Fernant looks like a very nice doggie and I am sure you enjoy having him to hang out with. Fenris is trying to scheme his way into getting Mommy to take him for a walk without Tuiren like Fernant she has a tendency to run off so Mommy walks them both on leash. Fenny misses getting to walk off leash.

    Vidock, We thinks taking your foods with you is very smart.

    Da Beebs and Genji, Good job supervising and we are swooning over your combined handsomeness.

  6. Goodness, you all are looking mighty good and Tom has a nice friend for company. Great pictures of the kitties. Thanks for all your purrs for Mister.

  7. We bet you'll be exhausted when Fennant goes back home if he's on the go all the time Tommy. We love Vidock's message to Uncle E! You boys look peaceful this Manly Monday.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. Gosh, Golly Gee-Whiz! Yous all looks so cuddly, wes surprised that #1 finds time to work or blog. Mes certainly would not!
    Kisses to each and every one of yous (including your house guest Fernant!

  9. You all seem to have such a grand time and always bring smiles with you!

  10. that is a lot of manliness. we are glad Fernant seems to be having such a great time at Camp Tommy

  11. Oh Tom, I love your picture in the field! Have fun time with Fernant! Gen-Chan, you are looking more and more handsome every time I see you :-)

  12. Hi Fernant! We hope you have a wonderful visit!

    I think Vidock wanted to share his hay with you!

    Monty and Harlow

  13. Watch out for your leg, Tommy. Fernant has tended to be a bit too exuberant in the past and ten days is
    quite a lot of exuberance. It's very thoughtful returning Fernant at night so Basha doesn't get lonely. Very kind of your #1.

  14. Those are 2 very handsome mancats. Hope that rain stopped for good
    Lily & Edward

  15. You are going to have lots of fun for 10 days Tommy. You may need a holiday at the end of it.

  16. You boys are all having a good time.

  17. Fernant is one very lucky dog to get to attend Camp Tommy for ten whole days. It sounds like great fun. Beebs, it looks like you are an excellent assistant to #1, making sure she takes the proper number of cuddle breaks.

  18. Fernant, learn some manners from Tommy. He will show you how to be a good boy. Vidock, was that for #1? You are SUCH a good boy!

    Beebs and it hot in here or is it me?

  19. I guess you need a week´s holiday Tom , when Fernant´s family is back *mol*

  20. Genji, that second to last photo of you shows off your handsomeness beautifully!

    Vidock. you look well , if mildly irked! :p

    Tommy, you will no doubt need a vacation once Fernant leaves...heehee.

    Mitalee will be right over to play with the mice and the ichneumon! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  21. What a wonderful Manly Monday all!
