#1 here. You all know that Tama is Da Beebs' Mama. In December 2009, she had a litter of four kittens, three boys and one girl, and Da Beebs decided he was staying right here at Poupounette Central. This did not go down really well with Tama-Chan who, since then, has regularly lectured him on the contradictory facts that he insisted on staying and yet he Houbibis whenever he can, causing everyone much aggravation.
When he was a tiny little boy (just under 4 weeks old in the photo below) she would regularly play Patty-Cake with him:
As he grew older (3 months in the photo below) , she just about tolerated him:
Perhaps her greatest gift to him was to teach him to love Tommy:
But once he was allowed to join the rest of the family, she refused to have anything more to do with him, and if he goes anywhere near her, she generally hisses at him. That being said, the two are very similar in their likes and dislikes, and there is a definite family air about them. So, I was very touched and amused to see this scene on my bed early yesterday morning:
Seer what I mean about the family air? It was also very nice to see the two of them lying so peacefully so close together.
