#1 here again, filing what will probably be one last report from Tokyo. Today, I got to do something very fun. I visited a whole bunch of Abyssinian kittens! I went to see Ms. S who breeds Abys. Right now, she has mainly blue and fawn Abys, and there are 10 three and four months old kittens running around, being totally crazy! Nine of the ten are girls, and they are all exceptionally playful and affectionate.

Why look at the TV when you can look at me?

This was right at the top of a big pile of boxes, just under the ceiling!

Can we have some cuddles please?

Me, me, ME!!!!!

I want some too!

I am sure there is something interesting behind this glass!

And behind the door!

Oh and by the way... Every single one one of those kittens is a "Chan!"

This has been a great trip but I must say that today was one of the highlights!

I return to France on Sunday and we hope to be back to our regular posts on Monday or Tuesday.


  1. Cuteness overload. We'd love to play with those kitties - for 5 minutes and then they look like they'd exhaust us. Safe travels back.

  2. Adorable pictures of adorable kitties!!! Have a safe trip!

  3. What lovely pictures of the Chans -
    they certainly look very playful.
    We are sure Tommy and your "Chans" will be delighted to see you arrive home especially if you have a goody or two for them!!
    Wishing you a delay free and easy trip home.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  4. Look at all those Chans! They are adorable. Not sure how #1 managed to leave that house without bring a couple of those Chans with her.

    Safe travels home!

  5. Hello cute Chans!! What a troop.

    Safe travels, #1!

  6. Cute kitties, but not as cute as the Chans!

  7. Oops, I meant to say not as cute as the Perche Chans!

  8. Oh, we hoped to see these pictures. They've got especially frootbatty ears. We're glad you had such a trip but can already imagine how nice it will be to be home with your very own Chans, Tommy and Vidock. Have a safe trip home!

  9. Squee! Squee! Oh goodness, squee! Aren't they just so precious! And those ears! Too adorable! What a treat for #1 to be in such good company.
    When she gets home you will have so much fun sniffing the sweet scents of all the baby kitties.
    We wish #1 a safe and comfortable trip home. Hope she has a quiet flight so she can savour her sweet holiday memories. Our love to all.

  10. How fun to be in the midst of so many Aby kittens! I can only imagine the trouble they all must be getting into!

  11. Holy cow! That is a pack of Abys...I can't imagine 9 Abys in one place...although Jake and Angel often seem like there are 9 of them...

  12. Hey Tommy -

    I would snooter #1's luggage purrrrrty khlosely!


  13. Oh my gosh! A clan of Chans! I bet you were in heaven. I know I would go over the moon with so much frootbatty silliness.

  14. I'm so jealous that you get to be around all these beautiful kittens. :)

  15. Wow, that's a whole lot of cuteness with all those Chans - bet there will be lots of sniffing of #1 when she returns. But the Pouponette Chans are are favorites still.

  16. Oh, how fun! A kitten filled holiday! Abys have the most endearing smiley faces...just love it!

    Thanks everso for always stopping by and leaving sweet comments, and for supporting Brighton's auction, too!

  17. I'm sure your proximity to such beautiful friends made your heart hasten East, to your wee Pouponettes! They will love to learn of your adventures as they scent their Japanese relatives!

  18. It's SO neat that you found a Chan amongst them all!

  19. We hope that no.1 has a safe and short flight back home and that all you kids have been good while she has been away. Be sure to let her get her rest when she comes back and to forgive her if she doesn't feed you breakfast at your normal time...remember that she loves you no matter what time she feeds you!!

  20. Hi Tommy - I saw you over on Mango's blog and thought I'd pop over to say hi! What a cool family you have! And I have never really seen Abyssinian kitties before - they are so beautiful!

    I've just been reading through some of your past posts and really enjoying all the photos. My human especially liked the ones of Tokyo - she recently went back to her own country of Taiwan and the pet shops there were just like that too! (And if you think the woofies in Japan are tiny compared to you, can you imagine what they're like compared to ME??!! :-)

    Anyway, I hope you will come over to visit me on my blog too!
