Manly Monday: Genji's Gotcha Day!

Genji: Hi everyone! My Gotcha Day was actually a few days ago, on July 8th, and we thought we would feature me in this week's Manly Monday post.

This was my fifth Gotcha Day. And this is the first photo of me that #1 saw. No wonder she fell for me!

I was born in South-West France and actually flew up to Paris where #1 collected me at Orly Airport. Here is my first meeting with #1. As you can see, I liked her right away!

And here is one of the first photos she took of me at Poupounette Central:

This was the first time I met Da Beebs. I think he was a little scared of me...

I am lucky I have a great brother, and we love to "hang out" together!

As you know, I have had some serious health problems this year and I am still considered very fragile, but #1 takes really good care of me. For my Gotcha Day, I gave her a present that made her very happy: I weighed in at over 4kg!

She says I look a little chubby in this picture:

Here is a really fun pic she took a couple of days ago. We have a beautiful ornament with a crystal ball at one of our windows and it makes rainbows everywhere, including one on me!

Thank you all for being my friends. I love my life at Poupounette Central and you are all a big part of it, as are #1 and my brothers and sisters.


  1. Happy Gotcha Day, Genji ! You're living in the best home ever, with a wonderful family and a wonderful human ! We hope you got some extra-treats to celebrate that special day ! Purrs

  2. Happy gotcha day, Genji! You are such a little sweetheart - okay, maybe little compared to some of your other family members, but not to me... I'm only around 3kg, or about 6-1/2 pounds.

    Wonderful too, that you are doing well and gaining weight :)

  9. Happy Gotcha Day sweetheart! You were an adorable, wonderful baby and are an even more adorable and wonderful mancat. Can it really be that long already? We remember that photo of you with #1.We fell madly in love with you the moment we saw it. You'd had an airline trip, were in a strange place and were meeting someone that you did not know yet you were full of love and sweetness. Delightful beyond words. We're so pleased to know you've gained weight. You look marvellous. Celebrate your wonderful life, dear. We certainly will.

  16. YAY, Genj! Happy gotcha day, rainbows and ALL!!

  17. Happy Gotcha Day Genji. We're glad to hear you are doing so well. Keep up the good work.

  18. Bonjour Genji,
    Déjà j'étais en retard, mais en plus, juste au beau milieu de mon commentaire... patatra mise à jour. Mon humaine était un peu énervée.
    Je voudrais quand même te souhaiter un bon anniversaire d'adoption.
    C'est vrai que tu commences à avoir l'air un tout petit peut rond, mais c'est super bien. En été nous les chats on a tendance à maigrir. Et dans ton cas il ne faut pas.
    C'est tout beau le reflet sur ta tête.

  19. Happy Gotcha Day again dear Genji! We missed sharing that you looks furry handsome in rainbow colors.
