Manly Monday


Vidock: Handsome Neighs, EveryFriend. I thought I would kick off today's post with a couple of shots of your favourite Percheron (I am, right?).

Trotting to #1 for my apples and carrots:

Thank you, #1!

Ollie: Look what I found! No, I did not kill it. I just found it and #1 lets me play with it outside. She took it away from me at the door. She says I am a good boy because I let her without even pulling or growling.

Benny: I'm back from the hospital jail, but I am now in the jail at home! #1 says I must stay quiet for two weeks. But I feel great and I don't want to stay quiet! I will tell you all about my adventures on Wednesday, so be sure to tune in!

We wish you all a good week!

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: Well, he's back. He (PP) is nowhere to be seen but I can just feel him... #1 explained to me that he has to be kept quiet for a couple of weeks. Him? Quiet? Good luck with that!

Here are a some photos of me having a morning snuggle with #1:

I also enjoyed snuggling with my buddy Fernant when he was with us:

Here is Ollie enjoying a morning snuggle with #1:

And an afternoon snuggle with Ms. N!

We don't have any post-surgery snuggle shots of Benny, but here are some nice ones Mr. G took last week of him and #1:

We didn't get snuggle pics with the horses this past week, but we will aim to have some for you next week!

Wishing you all a very snuggly Sunday

Beebsy Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Beebs: Hi Everyone, your handsomest of all friend, Da Beebs, here, posting from the Rainbow Bridge. I know that Sei-Chan normally does the honours but #1 has been thinking about me a lot this week, and I thought it would be nice to post some pics. Why has she been thinking of me more than usual? Because the last time she went to the referral clinic where young Benny had his polyp removed was with me. Sadly, there was nothing they could do to help me. I'm glad they've helped the little one. Also, two years ago, I was coming to the end of my time at Poupounette Central and so this is a poignant time for #1. Today's photos were all taken in 2017, which was the last full year that all of us were together.

Helping with the bed-making:

Remember this one where I was a spectator as Da Genj and Sei-Chan duked it out?

At the kitchen window.

Sunning in the porch:

I hope you enjoyed these photos of me back in 2017. Have a great weekend!

Feline Friday


Sssshhhhhhhhhhh, Everyone. It's me, Benny! I am posting remotely from the town of Angers. I came here yesterday with #1 and our friend, Ms. M. We saw a couple of different doctors and there are several different possibilities regarding the mass in my right ear. The best case scenario is that it is a small polyp that can easily be removed. The worst case is a more complicated polyp or other mass that would require real surgery to remove. So, to figure it out, I am getting a scan this morning, and then the clinic will let #1 know. So, we will update when we have more news.

The clinic is a really busy place, and we spent a lot of time waiting.

We decided to take a selfie:

And then Dr. #1 came and had a look at me. He said I was really cute.

We didn't get a shot with Dr. #2. But I have a fun photo to share with you taken yesterday morning, of me with my new buddy, Fernant:

Keep those purrs and woofs coming, please! Oh, and #1 said to say sorry about the lack of commenting. She was exhausted after driving four hours yesterday.

UPDATE: #1 here. I got a call from the vet, Dr. Thibaut, to tell me that they had removed a big polyp from Benny's right ear canal and a small one from his left one, but the scan did not indicate any issues on the other side of the eardrum. They will get what they removed tested, just to make sure, but hopefully, this is the end of the problem. I will go and get him tomorrow morning.

Thoughtful Thursday


Benny: Mee-Mee Meow, Everyone! Benny here! Today is a big day for me. #1 told me that I have to get into that box again and, this time, we are going even further away than Dr. C's, to a special place, a specialised referral animal hospital called VetRef, where they can fix my ear! I really want that ear fixed so I can go ahead with enjoying life.

Here are some shots of me at Dr. C's on Monday.

I have had so many things shoved up my ear!

#1 told me that when I am all better and back home, she is going to show me a magical place called the cat run. I asked her if, maybe, I could have a swimming pool in there? I LOVE water, and playing with it. Right now, the nearest thing I have to a pool is Ollie's big water bowl.

Oh, and I need to tell you about Fernant! He is the most coolest guy ever, after my bro, Ollie!

I'll close for today with another coupe of pics taken by Mr. G. I am not sure how long I shall be at VetRef, but #1 says she will update you when she can.

If you have a purr or woof to spare for me over the next couple of days, I would be really thankful.

Woofie Wednesday


Ollie: I bet you guessed that today's Woofie Wednesday is going to be about my fun times with Fernant! As usual, we have been having a ball, playing lots and lots bitey face.

It's thirsty work, you know!

And I will close with this nice close-up that Mr. G took the other day.

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Greetings everyone! I am happy to report that we have our pal Fernant with us through Thursday this week. I love Fernant! He reminds me of my Tommy...I suppose I should also update you on PP Benny. We haven't been commenting as much as #1 seems to have been going endlessly to Dr. C's. They were back there again yesterday and the verdict is in. He will be going to the referral clinic a couple of hours away in Thursday afternoon, so they can fix the ear issue once and for all.

I have already told you that I have now gotten into the habit of sleeping with #1 and Ollie. The other thing is that before we go to sleep, we play laser pointer! I love the laser pointer! #1 says I go all kittenish again. It was hard to point and hold the camera at the same time, but she did get a few shots.

Ollie loves the pointer too!

Can you believe that that little pipsqueak actually got on the bed with me the other day?

I have continued to spend time in the cat run as PP won't be allowed out there as long as his ear isn't all fixed.

It's such a lovely place to meditate.

And there are some nice sunpudles to be had in the bedroom too!
