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.
But what a fun thing to digest!!ReplyDelete
You're extra lucky that your #1 let you eat the mousie, Yuu-Yuu. When I caught a mousie once my momReplyDelete
took it AWAY from me.
I have never caught a real mouse. Are they extra tasty?ReplyDelete
You are a great hunter. I don't think our kitties have caught any mice, but Simone could if she tried, I'm sure.ReplyDelete
We thought about entering the hammock giveaway, but couldn't figure out where to hang it, which is too bad, really. It would be a nice retreat from Franklin if we could figure something out.
lotsa licks, Lola
I wish I could digest a mousie!ReplyDelete
The thought of a nice juicy mousie lingering in my tummy makes me purr!!! You are so lucky!ReplyDelete
I am very impressed at your prowess, Yuu-Chan. I am an accomplished lizard hunter, but it takes a super hunter to go after the big game like you.ReplyDelete
Tell all - did you eat the whole mousie in one go??ReplyDelete
Wow, we knew you caught but we didn't know you devoured too. Hope they settled well. TD wants to know if you chew or do like he does, swallow in one big gulp. Happy resting,Hunter Yuu-Chan.ReplyDelete
Sounds like you must be feeling better, Yuu Chan! Busby probably wouldn't eat a mouse but I sure would. I am the champion chicken neck eater at our house! xo, RaymondReplyDelete
Take it easy, Hunter Yuu-chan! You are looking quite handsome on your throw and in your relaxed pose.ReplyDelete
Good for you for catching a mouse, Yuu! I bet it was tasty.ReplyDelete
What a sweet photo ...ReplyDelete
Do woo have any preparation hints?ReplyDelete
PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy!
Yuu-Chan, you're so handsome you probably charmed that mousie right into your mouth!ReplyDelete
That picture is gorgeous... HUgs GJ xxReplyDelete
Look at those beautiful eyes... :)ReplyDelete
Yuu-chan you are ever so clever being able to catch mice! Were they tasty?ReplyDelete
I am envious Yuu-Chan! I have never seen a mousie in person!ReplyDelete
I catch mice but I don't eat them.ReplyDelete
Hmmm...never tried a mousie..ReplyDelete
