Tama-Chan Tuesday

It's a grey and rainy Tuesday and the country is beset by strikes and demonstrations. We are working hard to keep #1 calm but it's proving harder and harder to do.

Both the above photos were taken a couple of days ago when we had a lot of sunshine.

I also have been helping #1 with the ironing, and I have to say that I do a rather better job than my son Bibi (boys!). I start by preparing the ironing pile...

And then I make sure everything is properly smoothed out after it's ironed:

I have also decided that, given the new addition to our family, I had better study up on the subject a bit:

And here is a picture of me and Bibi enjoying the various amenities of our high beam:

Last but not least, we wanted to show you the photo we have all chosen to the be the background of the new laptop:

We just love that photo of Yuu-Chan!


  1. Tell #1 I keep my fingers crossed for her, and hope she can travel on Friday...
    She is also lucky to have such help for ironing :-)
    Take care!

  2. Oh, we do wish the strikes and demonstrations would be over!

    What a glowing picture of sweet Yuu-Chan.

  3. Strikes are No Good! Love the picture of Yuu!

  4. We are crossing everything for #1 with her travelling. We love the new lap top background. Mum has the last picture she took of Emma -the cat who came before on her laptop!

  5. we wish that the prollems will be ofur wif soon there!

  6. I guess #1 is probably freaking out because of the airline problems. I hope that it gets resolved. Unless you hope it doesn't so she stays home. I just want whatever you want on this one.

    The photo is really beautiful.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  7. I'm with Lola on this.

    And that is a striking picture of Yuu-chan.

    The big question is, does she need to go on the trip so she can get money to keep you guys in food, toys, sky hammocks and chicken?

    Nose kisses,

  8. Hang in there with #1, she really needs to be calmed now, Tama!

  9. We love that pic of Yuu-Chan too. We miss his sweet little face.

  10. We understand why number one is concerned, we read that the strikes are getting even bigger there.

    We love that photo of Yuu-Chan too. Forever your handsome boy.

  11. Hey Cuzzins (well, sort of!) I/we can relate to the gray weather...sky crap is what it is!! And here it is cold, too. Like you, we had a couple of days of sunshine, but they are now HISTORY! You guys are so helpful in the house...Mom keeps telling us it would be great if we could at least clean the litterbox, but Mom does such a good job of it that I don't see why we should do it. Is that the wrong answer? Wow. You are going to make friends with a horse? We can't even make friends with a pip-squeek dog (hey! he is very energetic!), I don't know if I would be able to even LOOK at a horse!! I think you are soo brave to live with and love a dog and now a horse.... That picture of Yuu is really brilliant...what a sweetie he was...our Mom chokes up a bit when she looks at it. We all hope that your #1 is smiling again and is starting to recover from Yuu's passing...as much as she can, that is. I am/We are sending you lots of purrs and Ellwood is sending a bizillion licks (that dog is always licking...or biting), Tiny and Lautrec

  12. P.S. We all three agree that Vidock is BEAUTIFUL!!!! We're so glad that #1 finally got to have her own horse...and oh what a wonderful horse she has!!

  13. I think you guys are doing a great job. I don't understand demonstrations--after all if all people thought like cats we wouldn't need them.

  14. Mommy has been following the news in France...she is becoming much more worldly to keep up with all our friend's news. We have our paws crossed that #1 will be able to travel, AND get back home again. Maybe the era of the steamship will be back, soon!

    Tama, we are sending calming purrs for you to channel to #1.

  15. That is a beautiful picture for the background image of your new laptop.

    Boo on the strikes. We hope everything works out for the best!

  16. Hi Tama-Chan! We are sorry the weather there is bad - we hope it gets better soon! And we hope that the strikes all get resolved - that is just terrible. It is good you are trying to keep #1 calm!

    And we love that picture you chose for the computer - Yuu-Chan was just such a wonderful little guy - we know you miss him a lot and that is a nice way to see him every day! We still miss him lots too.

  17. Awesome choice for the background. That is one of our favorite pics of the sweet boy too.

    Mom was thinking about #1 when she heard the latest of the happenings there. We hope it all works out for her. Is there any way she can get to another country and fly from there?

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  18. Our day started like that but the sun emerged to dry things sufficiently fur several pawesome walks!

    That is THE purrrrrfekht shot fur the new fruit-top!

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy!

  19. That is a beautiful photo of Yuu-Chan with his fashionable collar and all!!
    Thinking about #1 and what's going on over there...

  20. I bet your human is stressed out, Tama-Chan! There is not much anyone can do, though, but hope her travel plans work out the way they need to!

    That is a lovely photo of Yuu-Chan. It is the perfect background for the laptop.

  21. You are right Tama_chan, boys are not good at ironing:) I should know having 4 boys in the home. The Yuu_Chan wallpaper is splendid, we all agree (boys included)

    san and the amigos

  22. We hope all the craziness stops soon! We're glad you all are doing your best to keep #1 calm.

    We love that picture of Yuu-Chan too!!

  23. Oh dear. We are hoping everything will be alright for your #1. Mummy is a little embarrassed to tell you that Cat Daddy is the ironer here and he is really very good at it.... mawhawhaw!

    That photo of Yuu-Chan is so beautiful. We're glad he'll be there every time your #1 opens up the laptop!!!
    Purrs, Keiko, Kenji, Pricilla & Yuji

  24. We can certainly see why you love that photo of Yuu-Chan. It's beautiful.
