Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: Hello, Dear Friends and warm greetings from all of us at The Bridge. We miss you all and wish we could still purr in your ears. 

From time to time, we like to go way back in time to #1's beginnings as a cat owner. She was living in Tokyo and had always wanted a cat. In September 1992, a 7-week old Abyssinian kitten came into her life, and that was the start of a life-long love of the breed. She named the kitten IKKYU, after an illustrious Buddhist monk who was famed for his wisdom and sense of humour. The two lived happily together for almost 15 years, in four countries and three continents. He was definitely a one-person cat who loved only her, but boy, did he love her! So, let's take a peak at their lives together, from 1992 to 2007.

Ikkyu was much loved and, even though he has now been gone for so many years, #1 often thinks of him and all the fun times they shared.

Frootbat & Floofy Friday


Ryū-Chan: It's Friday and time for some Frootbats! And we know who has the #1 frootbats around here, right?

Benny: Hey, I have 'Bats too!

Queen Tama: And I have GloBats!

Momo-Chan: You may have the frootbats but I've got the FLOOF!

Momo and Ryū are heading to DR. C's this morning to get their annual check-up and boosters. Paws crossed for a smooth ride there and back.

Thankful Thursday


We kitten boys are thankful that every morning and every evening, we can line up in the bedroom and get delicious treats!

Love from Benny, Momo and Ryū.

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Greetings, Dear Friends,  and welcome to my weekly post. As the little pipsqueak said yesterday, the weekend was greatly enhanced by the fact that #1 barely left the house. We are intending to enjoy this week to the full because things are about to go downhill from the middle of next week. More on that another time, though. I don't want to depress myself.

The other day, when #1 had to go for that meeting, she stopped at her favourite discount store and brought back a good stash of goodies for us. I examined everything closely:

Good selection, #1!

You know who has recently taken to hanging out rather close to me...?

As has my little pupil. I am beginning to despair of him since he is in full teenage mode at the moment and I have to speak to him very sternly several times a day.

It's a good job I get my Zylkene+ happy pills every day!

Manly Monday


Ryū-Chan: Meows, Everybody! It's your favourite little dragon here! Did you all have a good weekend? We did! #1 was home all weekend! She said I could host today's manly post because I am now a big boy. How about this pic of me?

Or maybe this one looks more manly? Yep, that's our Queen and my mentor behind me.

Here is one of my floofy bro, Momo, doing his yoga exercises on the window hammock:

And one of him doing some serious dangling!

My other bro, Benny, has taken possession of Ollie's new fishie toy, sent to him by his friend Willow in Pennsylvania!

It's gotten cold and rainy again, so we haven't been opening the kitchen window much. Here is one of Benny taken when it was still warm and sunny:

#1 is rather taken with this one of Ollie, with a bit of Momo floof resting on his head!

And here is one of him taking cover from the rain under some foliage in the garden:

The Big V hasn't sent over any new photos, so we'll cross our paws and hooves that we'll have some for next week.

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: As we have mentioned, #1 has had a really busy week, and so picture-taking has taken a bit of a back seat . However, Ms. C did take a bunch of pics when she visited Violette and Heloise on Friday, so let us start with those.

As you know, I always snuggle with #1:

As you also know that Benny always snuggles with Ollie:

Here is Momo, hanging out on #1's bed first thing in the morning:

Soon joined by Benny:

As well as Ryū-Chan:

And Ollie getting morning cuddles:

And that's our lot of snuggles for today! We hope you have a lovely and snuggly Sunday!
