Sunday, Sunday!

We are still reeling from yesterday's news over here but would like to say a big thank you for all the wonderful words of support we received from you. We will be relying a lot on our blogging community as we help Yuu-Chan tackle his illness.

He did pretty well yesterday after his first shot. He is beginning to eat better, which is important. We do really need to put some weight back on him. He is particularly fond of his "Thrive" freeze-dried chicken treats which are 81% protein and therefore great. Last night, #1 and Tommy decided to spend the night just with him, so they made up the bed in the back room. Yuu-Chan loves the new cat bed #1 brought back from England, so she put it next to her pillow and they were able to snuggle all night.

And Tommy provided lots of moral support:

As it is Sunday, we do have a few snuggle shots for you. This week, Yuu-Chan and Bibi-Chan snuggled together for the first time in a long while:

Although Tommy remains Bibi-Chan's favourite snuggle buddy:

We also have this rather sweet picture of Bibi napping next to ViVi last weekend:

And here is a rare shot... I actually let Bibi-Chan nap close to me!

#1 says she is sorry she doesn't have any shots of Sei-Chan snuggling this week. Her photo-taking has been curtailed by other considerations. We'll try to do better next week. We will also post daily about Yuu-Chan's progress as he completes his first course of 5 Interferon-Omega injections.

PS: Our special thanks to our friend Bolo for his nice post!


  1. I am glad to see Yuu-Chan home and eating at least a little bit. I know that Tommy is doing an excellent job at nursing, but I will add my heartfelt Mango good wishes as well.


  2. All that snuggling made us want to go bakhk to bed -

    BUT Mom is hitting the road again - today's passengers are a Britt, a Beagle, and a LabPupSheWee -

    Paws khrossed fur all!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! Mom is smiling bekhause our word is WINES

  3. I'm glad you're getting your snuggles in. Snuggles have to be good for one's health, right? We will continue to keep paws crossed and good thoughts for Yuu-Chan. We know one thing and that's that nokitty could have better care.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  4. I will gladly donate some of my ham ration to Yuu-Chan if he is willing to eat it.

  5. Darling Yuu-Chan, we are so very sorry that you had a distressing time at the vet yesterday. You be a good boy and eat all that yummy food for your #1, ok? We don't know if it's available in France, but we've had great success in the past using Nutrigel to get the weight on skinny kitties. Lishy loves the stuff!

    P.S. Thankyou for letting us know about your contest. As you may have picked up on, our mum has been no good at helping us blog lately, so we didn't see it until too late. It was sweet of you to tell us :)

  6. That's a lovely snuggle place for Yuu-Chan. We're all hoping he keeps his appetite up. Thrive chicken is yummy. Sending you lots if purrs and headbonks x

  7. I just read the news about Yuu-Chan, and I am so sorry. Harley and I are sending our very best purrs for him to feel much better soon, and hoping for the very best results from the Interferon treatments.

  8. Yuu chan!
    I did not know that...
    Take care and take a rest on your nice new bed.
    I am crossing my paws.

  9. We know how important it is for Yuu-Chan to eat - the vet is always telling MOm the same for Phantom. We sure hope the interferon injections work well and quickly.

    Lots of super snuggles going on there for all.

    Hugs to #1.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  10. Yuu-Chan looks very cosy in the new cat bed - we know he will have had many, many snuggles from #1 and Tommy - we are very good at snuggling if either or both of you need to stretch your legs. Bolo's post was lovely.
    We are purring overtime for all of you but especially Yuu-Chan.
    Luv Hannah, Lucy and mum Sue xxxxxx

  11. Oh no! we didn't know that Yuu-Chan was sick. We hope he feels better soon xxx

  12. Beautiful photos. We will be purring non-stop for Yuu-Chan. And do you think Tommy could come and visit us so we could snuggle with him?

  13. We are still purring for Yuu-chan...I think though, that snuggle therapy is very, very good. I honestly think that snuggle therapy can cure a lot of problems. Maybe there should be a snuggle day so that all the kitties, doggies, humans and everyone can just snuggle and get better...I know that after a good snuggle I feel great and happy. Yuu, we're snuggling for you!! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny

  14. Since I am reading newer to older I didn't see the post yesterday but sure hope he will be okay.

  15. Wishing Yuu-Chan a good week, and purring up a storm here. Hoping for a good appetite and avoiding any infections. And of course lots of super snuggles!

  16. yuu-chan - we are purring as hard as we can possibly purrr for you buddy. we knows that you is a fighter!!

    maybe this is a good omen - our werd verification werd is realmen - and you are a real man!

  17. We missed reading the post yesterday. YuuChan-you get better right away please and eat lots of good food.

  18. So good of you to spend time with your little bro Tommy. And we always like to see your snuggly crew. Hope Yuu-Chan continues to eat up his food.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  19. I am glad that Yuu-Chan is getting lots of snuggles! YEAH! And for all of you!

  20. We are all sending Yuu-Chan as much positive energy as we can! But of course, I think it's the in-person snuggles that help the most. :)

  21. Lots of lovely snuggly pctures. I am glad that things are going well so far and will continue to keep you in my thoughts.. Hugs GJ xx

  22. Hi Poupounettes!

    We're sorry to hear of Yuu-Chan's diagnosis and we're sending all our healing schnauzer snuggles his way. Glad he's back home where he belongs.

    Lots of lovely snuggle photos here - ahhh, we DO love snuggly sundays with the Poupounettes!

    Schnauzer snuggles - JD and Max.

  23. Crossing our fingers and paws for Yuu-chan! Lovely snuggles too

  24. We're so glad that Yuu-Chan is eating a little more and had a good night last night.

    Hopefully tonight is as good for you all.

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  25. Yuu-Chan you are in our thoughts and prayers. Keep snuggling -- it's good for you! Rest well, my friend.

  26. We will keep purring for Yuu-chan that his treatments help him recovery. He needs to eat.

  27. Soo nice to snuggle!
    Glad to know about Yuu-chan, rest more!!
    thanks for the updates!


  28. All the snuugling made me feel all warm inside. Your family is truly loving and it's wonderful to see!

    A few of my crowd LOVE dehydrated chicken and duck jerky that is made for dogs. I break it up in smaller chewable bits and all it is is the fowl, and glycerin. No preservatives or anything else.

    Perhaps Yuu-Chan would like to try them...if he doesn't care for them I think Tommy would, LOL!

    Many purrs coming your way from the desert and a big {{hug}} from me.
