Our 300th Post!

Tom: Being the senior member of this little group and the one who actually remembers the first one, I am in charge of our 300th post special! When we started out, in late June last year, it was just Sen-Chan and me. We were both still under a year old, but he was so much wiser than me. He was the intellectual side of our early posts and I was , well... goofy... We never imagined back then that Sen-Chan would be with us such a short time, or that we would find ourselves with two lovely little girl kittens, turning ME into the big brother.

I suppose that, for those of you who have not been our friends since the very beginning, I should explain our name. Have you ever wondered why "The Poupounette"? Well, it's simple, really. Sen-Chan's nickname was "Poupounet" which means nothing and everything in French. When #1 first started a newsletter, before the blog, she was looking for a name that sounded a bit like "Gazette" and "The Poupounette" was born!

#1 says that there are two wonderful things about blogging: The first is all the friends we have made, and the second is appreciating the life we live as we describe it in our blog every day.

To celebrate this occasion, here are unofficial portraits of all of us, starting of course with our Sen-Chan. He so loved being outdoors so it is fitting to show an outdoor action shot of him:

Here is the first "grown-up" portrait #1 took of me. I was about 5 months old a the time.

This is the very first photo  #1 ever saw of Tama-Chan...

As for Sei-Chan, there are SO MANY photos of her that it's hard to choose one, but #1 has always had a particular fondness for this one:

We are looking forward to many more hundreds, even thousands of posts, and all the wonderful sharing with our friends!

    We still miss Sen-Chan terribly, but we are very glad that you have all found each other, and that we have found you!

  12. Congratulations on your 300th post! It has been fun getting to know you all, and I was wondering about the name "Pouponette," too!

  14. Congratulations on your 300th post!

    We really enjoy reading about the three of you every day!

    We're just sorry we weren't around earlier to have known Sen-Chan.

    The photos are lovely especially your photo Tommy!

    lots of woofs

  15. The photo of Sen-Chan made mamma Isis cry for a bit, but we all gave her cuddles and then stealed her milk until she started purring again... Though I thought it was lovely to see a photo of him as he is kinda my spiritual daddy, being that mamma Isis loved him so very much!

    It's also nice to see photos of Tama-Chan as a baby, 'cause she was purrty much all growed up before I arrived just after my bestest friend Sei-Chan did...

    Back to being goofy now so Mummy can make more LOLCats of us! ;) This morning I letted Elzar wear me like a scarf to make her giggle! :)


  16. Wow....I can't believe it has been that many posts. Gosh, we sometimes feel like time moves faster than we can keep up with. We know we are very happy you started blogging. You are one of our very special friends who keeps us motivated.


  17. hey Tom and girls! congrats on 300 posts. that's pawsome! we are so impressed that you did it in less that one year.

    you chose really great photos today. we heartily approve of them. you are an adorable family and we are happy to know you!


  18. Oh, those are wonderful pictures. Tom you are so handsome and Tama-Chan and Sei-Chan are so cute. I like the picture of Sen-Chan outside - from what you say, and my reading of the earlier posts, it seems very appropriate. I love to read your blog every day - you are all just so wonderful! I look forward to may more posts in the future!!

  19. Congratulations! We've loved every post!

  20. This is spooky! I was going through some of your old posts only yesterday trying to find some of your first photos of Tama-Chan, and I saw that same photo of her that you posted today. I can see why #1 fell in love with her when she saw that pic!

    Very handsome photo of Tommy (as if there is any other kind), and that one of little Sei-Chan is priceless (I suspect that may be her Kitty Fight Club entry for next year)!

    I'm sure Sen-Chan is looking down from the Bridge with pride!

  21. Congrats on #300 - let's see at least another 300!!! Thanks for the explanation of the name - we often wondered about it.

    We are so happy that your little family decided to share part of your beautiful lifes with us all those 300 posts ago.. we hope that there will be many more to come :))

  23. Congrats on your 300th post! Those were all such beautiful and fitting portraits. My mom and I have always wondered what your blog name meant. Thanks for explaining it for all of us.
