First, in June 2008, came a young sorrel Abyssinian cat called Sen-Chan and a slightly younger English Springer Spaniel called Tom. In October 2008, they were joined by Tama-Chan, a ruddy Abyssinian girl kitten. The three lived so happily together, playing and cuddling in the French countryside with their mistress, known as #1. But in early January 2009, tragedy struck and Sen-Chan went to the Bridge at not yet 18 months. For a while, it was just Tom and Tama-Chan and #1, remembering sweet and gentle Sen-Chan, and the one who came before him, the fierce and noble Ikkyu. But then, in April 2009, a little red furrball, Sei-Chan, joined the family! She was followed in October 2009 by Yuu-Chan, a playful but very mellow little sorrel boy. And then Tama-Chan had kittens and little Bibi, a ruddy male, stayed with us. Sadly, we lost our beloved Yuu-Chan in September 2010, but we soldier on and live and love in our little corner of rural France. And we now have a big little brother in Vidock, a Percheron stallion, a little little brother in Genji, a blue Abyssinian, and a big little sister in Violette, a Percheron mare.
Genji: Are you wondering what is terrific about this Thursday? Well, for one, #1 is now dressing-free and continues to make good progress with the physio, and she actually drove herself to her physio appointment yesterday! She says it was easy!
The other terrific thing is this series of very nice photos of me!
Tama-Chan: I know I am not supposed to say this but you know what? Genji and I have really enjoyed having #1 here with us all the time these past two weeks! If only it could be like this all the time! But we know she will start getting more active very soon. Today, one of her cousins is driving out from Paris to take her to lunch, which is really nice.
ASsfor me, I have continued to provide unfailing support and looking cute!
