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.
You have a new game?
I hope you are a good boy with #1, are you?

Wish I'd had one of the ball thingys as never could throw that well.

Nice toy for you and #1 to play with, Tom! It looks like the field grass is turning green there already...it's still brown here (and covered with snow at the moment).ReplyDelete
I'm a lover and not one for lots of games I guess! ;)ReplyDelete
We love to chase after things, too. But I'm afraid we are not as brave as you, Tom... we'd have to come back empty-jawed if Ms. C threw things somewhere that got our ears wet! Brave, I tell you.ReplyDelete

Oooooh Tennis balls are so much fun!!ReplyDelete
I'll bet it's fun to go flyin' across the fields, Tom. Are you very good to bring it back? Or do you make your #1 trudge out to get it?ReplyDelete
You must be having fun, Tom, because you are smiling real big!ReplyDelete
Chasing things is the best, isn't it? I have several squeaky balls (I chew up the tennis balls too fast) and when my mom is too busy sometimes I throw them and chase them myself.ReplyDelete
I do I do!!!! You can bite my belly and I'll purr for you.ReplyDelete
hi Tom, yes, we want to play! that's our favorite game. we love to play tennis ball fetch with our chuck-it. that's sooooo much fun!ReplyDelete
that looks like fun!!!ReplyDelete
Most Sibes don't do chase...ReplyDelete
We play on OUR terms!
The chuck it is great. Even if # 1 is not a good thrower (my person is a pathetic thrower) normally, she will able to throw a ball really far with it. You get to run a long way!ReplyDelete
you look so happy..I bet you and Petey and I could have the best time chasing balls togethew
love to you and Tama chan.
We had seen those before and wondered if they really worked. I guess so!ReplyDelete
I think Banshee is a type of cat that may chase a ball. We'll have to see in the Spring.
