Wednesday Whinnies With Violette

Violette: Pretty neighs, everyone! I have had the most exciting few days and want to share it all with you!

A few days ago, #1 and the nice Ms. C brought me out of my field and gave me serious brushies before introducing me to this:

She said it's caled "shafts." She then showed me what that was all about. To be honest, it was quite funny!

I watched her closely as she pulled that thing along. I then got my treat bucket and went back to my field. Then, #1 came again on Monday afternoon, and they dressed me up and showed me something a little different:

And then, they attached me to it!!!

At first, Ms. C walked by me as I pulled it:

That was pretty easy! And then she climbed on board!

Then we went out onto the lane:

Ms. C said I was a real star! After a while, #1 climbed aboard too and we headed back home!

I had a great time1 And I got an extra special treat bucket at the end! #1 told me she was really proud of me, and Ms. C kept telling me that I was a beautiful and clever girl!
Apparently, it's called "driving."

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Ruffle the carpet? Me? Why would you think that, #1? I know nothing about how it got that kink in it...

One can but despair when false accusations are thrown about like that...

The news at my end is that I am coughing again, and #1 has had to slowly increase my prednisone dosage again. We still don't know what it is I am allergic to, but there seems to be a lot of it about. I don't know if it has anything to do with being outside, but I do like the cat run this time of year!

And I also like naps in sunpuddles accompanied by window whiffies!

Manly Monday

Da Beebs: Let me start with an unusual "naked" pic of me. I managed to lose my collar whilst #1 was away and it took her several days to locate it and put it back on:

Here is a nice pic of me and my two Poupounette Central brothers:

Of course, the peaceful setting did not last long. This was the next second:

Sorry it's out of focus. That blue terror moves fast! 

Da Genj: Terror? Moi! I am an adorable little pussycat!

Let's hear it for that roar!

Tommy: There are flowers everywhere! Here is one of me with some of our bluebells:

Vidock: I have this little guy who is always by my side:

His name is Ronnie and he sticks to me like glue...

To be honest, I am beginning to wonder if he thinks I'm his mama!

Can't help you out there, little buddy!

Have yourselves a great week!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: I am beginning to think that the horses are going to beat us at this snuggling game at the rate they are going! Here is The Big V with #1:

And The Big V with #1 plus Eric and Flynn's Mum!

And just look at this #1 and Violette snuggle!

#1 says it's one of her all-time favourite photos!

I snuggled with Tommy but #1 managed to cut off part of his head!

And both my Beebs and Da Genj have been snuggling with #1:

By the way, our little neighbour, Merlin, has also been snuggling with Tommy!

 Wishing you all a Snuggly Sunday!

Rainbow SEIturday

Rainbow Sei: If you don't mind, it will be just me today. You see, #1 collected me from Dr. C's office a few days ago, so I am back home with my family. She has placed me in my very favourite spot, in the beddie under the skylight in the study. That beddie has a direct view on #1 as she works at her best.  For now, I am in the regular urn. #1 says she wants to take her time to find something special for me. Right next to the urn, #1 has put a beautiful photo of me, taken by our photographer friend, Hiroaki Ota, when he visited us from Japan last year. When #1 asked him for a high-res version of the photo, he said he would have an enlargement made and send it, and he did it and sent it to us. It is beautiful and it sits so well in the beddie that #1 says it looks like I am sitting there!

I will be back with our regular Souvenir Saturday programming next week! Keep well, Dear Friends.

Feline Friday

Da Beebs; After endless weeks of rain and cold, spring has finally come to us and we have had a lovely week of blue skies, flowers blooming, birdsong and sunpuddles!

Here I am, napping in a sunpuddle in the study hammock:

I hope you like the foot and tail dangle!

And here is my Mama Tama snoozing in the sun by the open window in the kitchen!

As for Da Genj, he has been spending a lot of time out in the cat run:

Since it is Feline Friday, two of our neighbous also asked to be included today. So here is Basha, Fernant's kitty bro: 

And little Merlin, Damia's bro:

Do you like the photo bomb by Tommy?

Thankful Thursday

Tommy: Needless to say, the thing we are most thankful about is that #1 has returned safely from England. Of course, you know what her trips to England, don't you?

#1 did us proud. Aside from yummy stuff for me and The Chans, she also brought some apples and carrots for Violette, and lots of stuff for the birds. 

But that was not all! We also got a lovely gift bag from Eric and Flynn's parents, Jackie and Ivor!

There were yummy apple-flavoured horse treats. Vidock got to sample them immediately! There was a big bag of The Chans' favourite treats, and some toys, and toys and treats for me too! And a lovely magnet of Eric and Flynn which is already on our fridge.

Even though Mama Tama said she wanted to do the inspection, Da Beebs beat her to it!

I am also thankfully that the weather is beautiful and my big field is covered in dandelions. #1 can look forward to wonderful walks all week!

Wednesday Whinnies With Vidock

Vidock: Neighs, EveryFriend! I said I would be back today, and so here I am! I had a great visit with #1 over the weekend, and, as I mentioned, with Eric and Flynn's parents.

#1 decided I needed a good brushing. so she got me from my field and set to work. When she first arrived, it was pretty foggy:

As you can see, I am still the handsomest guy around!

When #1 was brushing me, I met this young woofie called Reggie. He has floppy ears, just like my Tommy back home.

By the time #1 was done, there was Vidock hair everywhere!

I looked nice and clean:

Of course, I went back into my field and rolled in the dirt, and the next day, it rained!

Here I am with Eric and Flynn's parents, and one of my little friends! They brought me some yummy treats!

The little guys all think I am awesome!

And look who else I am sharing my field with:

I have to tell you... it makes quite a change after my solitary life when I was a stallion! 

And the best news is that #1 is coming to see me again in 3 weeks!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Wake me up when #1 arrives. I need to be there to inspect the gifts. She promised to be here before noon.

Manly Monday

Vidock: Handsome neighs, EveryFriend! How have you all been? I have been well and really enjoyed #1's visit this past weekend. I shall tell you lots more about it on the Wednesday post, but, in the meantime, I wanted to tell you that I also got some really exciting visitors besides #1.

To my right is Ms. Jackie. She is Eric and Flynn's mum!

And to my left is Mr. Ivor, their dad!

They came all the way up from Devon, just to meet ME! It was so nice of them! Oh. they also got to meet #1...

I know that Violette got to meet Ms. Claire of The Swiss Cats recently, and I was feeling a little left out, but this more than made up for it! Thank you for visiting me!!!

Tommy: I am just counting the hours until #1 gets back tomorrow. But in the interim, I have my ball, and I have Mr. G.

Da Genj: I am keeping watch for #1 at the window at the front of the living room:

Da Beebs: And I am keeping watch at the side window:

We wish you all an excellent week!
