This blog was started in June 2008 by a young sorrel Abyssinian cat called Sen-Chan and a slightly younger English Springer Spaniel called Tommy. The years that followed were full of hellos and goodbyes. Some, like Sen-Chan and Yuu-Chan, were lost very young. Other Abys like Sei-Chan, Bibi, and Genji stayed with us for quite a few years. But they too have gone now, as has Tommy. In the interim, several Percheron horses joined the family, starting with Vidock in 2010, Violette in 2012, and then Hotesse and Heloise in 2020. They contribute to the blog regularly. But the mainstays are Ollie, also an English Springer Spaniel, Tama, an Abyssinian queen who has been with us since late 2008, and Benkei (Benny), a little ruffian who joined us in 2021. We live in rural France, in a region called the Perche, which is famous for its heavy horses.
Tama-Chan: For a while, life was strange and sad. My big brother, Sen-Chan, suddenly disappeared and I felt lost, even though Tommy was very good to me. But our #1 came back on Friday night and with another really nice lady who plays with me a lot (#1: My sister-in-law has come to spend a week with us and is spoiling Tommy and Tama-Chan silly), so I am feeling a lot better and have been playing a lot. I will tell you some other time about some of my favourite toys, but first I wanted to tell you that we got a surprise package over the weekend from Abby and Stygia! We were a bit sad because the kitty gifts were addressed to both me and Sen-Chan, but I promise to make excellent use of them!
This is my favourite new toy, the perfect colour for a little princess!
Tommy got a great gift too and he was so excited!
I have been spending more and more time with Tommy and also with #1 and our guest. It's fun to be with people!
