Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Well, it got cool, and then it got somewhat hot again, and last night, it started raining which we badly need. It's supposed to continue raining all week, and the temps will go down a lot! What is there to do at such times but look cute?

We have special posts both tomorrow and Thursday and hope you will join us for both.

Manly Monday

Vidock: OK, Play the music. You know the one... The one from that old TV series... ZORRO!

#1 got me this fly mask. The ears are a bit longer than they need to be and it could be a little longer in the nose, but it's doing a pretty good job. 

 Da Genj: It's fun to sit at the window with your bro and enjoy the breeze!

Then again, it's also nice to hang out in a shady corner of the cat run!

Tommy: When I go out to restaurants, this often happens:

That's Mr. J, one of the two guys who own the restaurant. He almost always brings me some treats!
 It finally cooled off so I went for a walk in the woods with #1!

Da Beebs: How about a handsome profile?

Or an equally handsome sleepy face?

Fernant: Woof! It's me, Fernant. I was at Camp Tommy over the weekend. I really like it there!

Basha here. I just wanted to say hello to the beautiful Loustiquette.

We wish you all a good week!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: We shared with you how incredibly hot it was here for most of the week and I have to say that it did affect our snuggling a little bit. Nobody had any energy. Still, we soldiered on, and this is what we have for you:

First of all, here I am with my Tommy:

And a slightly blurry Sei-Chan with Tommy:

Sei-Chan decided she needed some direct cuddles with #1 so she went and sat on her in bed!

Of course, this is something that Da Genj does all the time anyway, but this week, he decided to try something different:

And you may remember that Sei-Chan likes to hold paws with #1:

Fernant is with us for the weekend and he loves to snuggle! 

Da Beebs was too busy airing out his paws to snuggle...

And Miss Violette was right at the back of her shelter, hiding from the horseflies, but The Big V was willing!

 Happy Snuggling, Everyone!

Savage SEIturday!

Sei-Chan: HeeHeehee... Did that title worry you? I didn't really mean it but you know how I have a bit of a reputation as being a scaredy cat? Well, yes... I am cautious and don't hang around too long if there is trouble brewing. But, believe me, I do know how to stand up for myself, and I have proof! #1 managed to catch this shot of me as I was being bothered by a certain unnamed blue boy:

Enough said, right? Except that I did also want to draw your attention to the Beebsy half-brother of mine. Talk about looking all innocent!!!

In other news, I am glad to announce that the heatwave has broken somewhat. It is still warm but nothing as warm as it was. We can all breathe!

Here is a nice sunpuddly shot of me:

And another:

With my new toy from Japan:

Ever since it got hot, I have taken to hanging out in this location. It is a little bit cool:

 Have a great SEIturday, everyone!

Family Friday

Tommy: We love it when the whole family is together at Poupounette Central, even when it's insufferably hot. I have been doing a lot of hanging out with my buddy, Da Beebs:

Da Beebs and Da Genj have been exchanging tips about how best to stay cool:

Mama Tama has been looking cute:

And also hanging with me:

 And Sei-Chan is busy supervising some photo archives of Percheron horses!

And before I leave you, we have a new photo of baby Joy in Japan with her mama. They are so cute together!

Torrid Thursday

Da Beebs: Torrid really is the only word to describe the weather we have been having. It has been close to 100F (37°C+) for several days. We have two fans going in the study, and one in the bedroom. The downstairs is mercifully naturally cool. We have all been stretched out to the max.

Here I am with my sister Sei-Chan:

And with Tommy:

Da Genj was airing his tummy floofs:

Mama Tama was brave enough to lie in a semi-sunpuddle! Although the tile floor is relatively cool.

 #1 has been back and forth to the garage as she is having issues with the car's AC. Bad timing!

We're hoping it will cool down soon!

Wee Ones on Wednesday

Héloise: Tiny neighs, everyone! It's Héloise. The apple lady tells me that some people have been asking for photos of me, so here I am!

Here I am looking at the big field where the floppy-eared one runs after his ball:

My big sis, Doucette, is now back in the field with my Mama and me:

I use her for shade sometimes!

Joy-Chan: Nyaaaan! That's Japanese for Meow! Do you remember when that #1 lady was in Japan and she showed you some pics of me and my Mama? Well, I have been growing!

I am very good about drinking my milk every day! 

They say I am very cute...

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Today marks a week since #1 came back. It is sweet to have her back but I must tell you that none of us have much energy at the moment. It was 35°Ç (mid-90sF) here yesterday and more of the same is predicted for the next few days. Nobody has AC here and so we are staying cool by doing very little.

Here I am, napping in the hammock by the window in the study:

A "Toesday" shot for you!

I have also been spending time on my favourite kitchen perch, the one by the window there:

Now if you will excuse me, I shall go back to staying cool.

Manly Monday

Genji: Mee-Yow, everyone! It's Da Genj here! I have been very busy since #1 got back, snuggling with her every minute she will let me! But I have also been celebrating with my Kickaroo!

Da Beebs here with some awesome vertical dangles!

It's me, Tommy, with some big hay bales I found in my field!

Vidock: These days, with the heat and the flies, I am mostly hiding out in my shelter, but I come as soon as #1 calls me!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: All is right with our world again now that #1 is back home! It has been very hot and is supposed to go up all the way to 36°C (97F) this week. We are managing to stay cool with our fans (almost no one has AC here) and we are thankful that the ground floor of our house stays cool as it is built into a slope.

I have of course been snuggling with my Tommy:

And I have been getting my brushies from #1:

My Beebs has been all over #1:

As has Da Genj:

And Da two boys with #1 in the morning:

#1 didn't manage to get an actual shot of Sei-Chan snuggling with Tommy, but here is one of the two of them hanging out together in the sun:

Sei-Chan is a little hard to see as she is right in the sunpuddle!

#1 did have a little snuggle with Miss Héloise:

(the camera was on the "art" setting which explains the slightly odd colouration)

It's Sunday! Remember to have extra snuggles with the ones you love!
