Tom: I am not the one who is usually given the task of elaborating on philosophical issues, but our topic today is relationships. Needless to say, the most important relationships in my life are with #1 and with Sen-Chan, my close family, but there are so many more. I would like to share with you a photo taken yesterday that shows me and my friend Pie (an important relationship!) having a very deep and intent "treat relationship" with Pie's Ms.A:

On a day-to-day basis, though, I share almost everything with Sen-Chan, and #1 keeps aiming the camera at us, as though we were doing something unusual...

Sen-Chan: Well, I have certainly had my share of relationships over the last 24 hours! Last night, I was sleeping on my Boogie Mat, between #1's keyboard and screen, when this most peculiar creature landed on my tail!

Can you see it? It was quite overwhelming in its sheer greenness! #1 said it's called a grasshopper.

And then today, when the time for my outing came, I thundered out of the door, and shortly thereafter, thundered back in to offer a beautiful giftie to #1. Well, the fuss! She rounded up both me and Tom, and locked us up. I was looking through the crack in the door and saw her crawl under the table and retrieve my catch (it was quite unharmed, honest!)

So, anyway, she took it back out and put in it a tree hoping it would be OK, And guess what I got:

Can you believe it has a BELL on it?!


  1. *Vast and thundering applause for your 'catch' of the day, Sen-Chan!*

    I bet you were really proud of that catch! It was really sweet of you to leave it for #1 to play with instead of gobbling it down.

    Tom, I think a "treat relationship" sounds terrific!

  2. Well a bell is going to mess with your ability to be stealthy. That seems quite unfair indeed. We had a gigantic moth in the house yesterday. Kaze tried to get it but Meowmy took care of it in the end. I was miffed I missed the excitement.


  3. Yummy, yummy crunchy green goodness!

    I am not a hunter by nature but I can't help pouncing on those little "greenies".

  4. I think the bell is your reward for being such a great hunter!

  5. Sen you got a nice necklace and the bell doesn't help your catch!
    your friends here are fascinated by the fast swallows....
    As you can read Baf got some easy treats!

  6. Hmmm, what was a grasshopper doing in your house? Or were you outside when that happened? We all wear collars with bells so Mom can know where we are. It's not bad once you get used to it.

  7. Thank You so much for your kind words this past week.

  8. Aww, man! Sen-Chan, you've been BELLED! Oh, the travesty! Oh, the ignominy! Tripper has LOTS of bells! We should start an anti-bell lobby, don't you think?

  9. Mr Bee has TWO bells and you can hear them when he is walking in the garden but still,he can catch birds,and frogs to i'm afraid.Just yesterday i found a dead little birdie following the trail of feathers.I love Mr bee, and i love birds,what can you do...Today Mr bee stays in the house...
