Viodck and Violette Vendredi


Vidock: Studly Neighs, EveryFriend! I have started preparing for my big show on August 15th. I am going to do a number of things at that show, but the most challenging will be a dressage "pas de deux" with my Lusitanian pal, Renzao. Mr. JP will be riding me as usual, and young Mr. V (who rode Violette at the medieval festival) will be riding Renzao.


Those who know a bit about riding will see that I am cantering on the wrong leg...


But I'm still the handsomest dude around!

When I posted photos on Monday, several of you commented on how big I was. Now take a close look at my feet next to Renzao's!


Violette: Have you missed me, Dear Friends? When it's warm and there are lots of flies, the only place to be is inside the shelter:


#1 tells me she has been seeing my Mama, Hôtesse, each and every day! That is more often than I see her! I am a little bit jealous... Here is my Mama in her field:


In other news, being a lady of leisure, I do what ladies of leisure do, so I got my nails done on Wednesday.

In the same way as people get a coffee or tea at a salon, I get my Himalayan salt lick:


It's a pretty tedious process, but that's the price of having lovely feet...



We would like to thank everyone warmly for the lovely comments about Trav on this blog but also on The Poupounette Facebook page, and on the "Bob The Big Issue Cat" Facebook page. He was such a brave boy and we at Poupounette Central were honoured to have him as one of us, even for the short period it ended up being.

I am always amazed at how massive you are, Vidock! Violette too.

Trav was a very special kitty. The wild ones who choose a family always are.

Violette, Mommy says getting her nails done is just as tedious. And she can only dream the rest of us would behave so nicely when she was trimming our nails.

Vidock, Your feet are so small next to Renzao's. He must be HUGE, cause we know you are a big guy.

Good luck to Vidock in his dressage show. Good to see you Violette. I should hope you would have big feet Vidock to hold up your big body. You all have a great week end.

Vidock - you ARE a very BIG boy, but oh so handsome too. And Violette, no wonder you are so beautiful with a gorgeous Mom like you have.

Claire is a nail tech (yes, and a teacher too) and she wishes all her customers behave as nicely as you do while she's doing their nails. Do you have some fancy nail art on your hooves ? You're such a big boy, Vidock, we're looking forward to seeing photos of your show in August. Trav was a special feral, and he only could choose a special human like your #1. Purrs

Even in the first photo Vidock looks bigger than Renzao!

We always love seeing photos of Violette and Hotesse

Vidock, mum says you are smart, so canter on the proper lead! Miss V, did you get your nails painted violette?

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi said...

You two make our mom miss riding so much! She doesn't know if she'll ever be able to get back to it due to having suffered too many concussions, and not being able to risk a fall and another one. But she loves looking at photos of you guys!

Wow! Vidor sure has some moves and Violette, me agrees about the nails.
