Tama-Chan: Yes, I have been tending to #1. Yesterday afternoon, the phone rang when she was on the landing. There was one Tommy underfoot plus one young man who had come to do a bit of tidying up in the garden. End result: #1 went down the (stone) stairs on her bum and elbows. May I say again that no kitty was in any way involved in this! So, #1 has been rather sore. She is particularly peeved because said bum had only recently recovered from the last crash (ice, that time) a couple of months ago. Nurse Tama recommended a nice hot bath and then made sure that #1 relaxed properly.
The bath water was rather peculiar in colour...
ORANGE! It contained bath salts from the Japanese hot spring resort of Arima. Let me take a closer look...
How close can I get without falling in?
Better make sure she is still breathing...
Bathtub surfing is hard work. I need a rest!
#1 said the bath made her feel a lot better, as did a good night's sleep. By the way, despite all promises, she is abandoning us again tomorrow although her excuse is that, this time, she is only going as far as Paris. She will be working at the Percheron stand at the national agricultural fair (Salon de l'Agriculture) and has promised to be back by Friday evening. Tommy will be staying with his Briard friend Sissi. So, our next post will be on SEIturday!
Hey there #1ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry to hear about yet another fall...those kinds of falls can be rather painful.
But I must say, I've been in fits of giggles here...taking a camera INTO the bath! LOL! Now that's a first. Cute pictures though!
Get better soon.

I was worried when I saw the first photo that #1 had been rolling about in the dirt or something. Phew. Just soothing bath salts. Hope it helped.ReplyDelete
Oh no! Poor #1, that must have hurt. We're sending her lots of snuggles. We're glad you didn't fall in the bath, Tama! We're not sure you would have found it as relaxing as #1 :PReplyDelete
First thank you so much for coming by our blog and sending purrs all the way from France. That should surly make Lucky feel better.ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that #1 had a crash. That doesn't sound like fun. We see you have a horse too. We have two miniature donkeys but Mom used to have lots of horses. Sure is nice to meet you.
oh noes, we is sorry you falled!!!ReplyDelete
that orinch water looks GREAT! - Billy
Woo are khwite the agile snakhkchat!ReplyDelete
Please tell #1 to rest up and stuff!
PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy! I'll romp in the snow today fur woo! Have fun with your furry furiend!
We hope #1 feels much better soon ~ and has a safe journey.ReplyDelete
Thank goodness you were thereReplyDelete
Tama-Chan so that you could get her into the bath with plenty of bath salts. We hope her bottom isn't black and blue today.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
Haha which one of you kitties was taking pictures of #1 and Tama in the tub? I hope that #1 is feeling better and enjoys her trip to Paris with the horses. Mom says that she is super jealous and it getting all those romantic notions in her head of horse drawn carriges and that pretty tower...mothers.ReplyDelete
#1 did pretty well to photograph you while she was in the bath! Above all else, don't FALL my Dad always tells my Mom, and vice versa. We are glad she didn't seem to break anything.ReplyDelete
Poor #1 - we hope the bruises heal. And you are so brave being on that bath tub. I have never seen one but apparently Aila-sisko used to love sitting on the bath and dipping a paw in when Äiti was in England. Madness.ReplyDelete
I am glad she is okay--I am sure it was because of your skilled nursing help. I can't believe that after all you did for her that she is just up and leaving you again!ReplyDelete
So sorry for the fall - mega ouchie!!! But the flashy beast made it to the tub too:) BOLOLOL - #1 is a dedicated blogger. We do hope she heals well and there were no serious injuries.ReplyDelete
Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara
Actually, when I saw the color of the water, my first thought was that your human had gotten awfully dirty! Maybe mucking out a stable or something! I have to say, that as vexing as her travels are, it does sound like she has a really interesting life!ReplyDelete
Thanks Cod ! She is ok. !!!ReplyDelete
I hope she feel better !!! Please give my big hug to her.
Hope you are okay after the fall....BE CAREFUL! We don't want you hurt!ReplyDelete
Feel better soon #1!ReplyDelete
Poor #1! We hope there is nothing broken! The warm bath was just the thing to soothe the bruising. Is there an electric heating pad that can go along with her on her trip? If the weather goes cold, muscles will begin to cramp up and neck and spine ache terribly. A heating pad over the sore areas will be welcome.ReplyDelete
If this terrible thing had to happen, we are glad no kitty was involved. We'll miss you much. Muchly much ! Kisses and hugs.
Looks like you are a very good nurse Tama-Chan!ReplyDelete
Purrs for #1
Your #1 needs to be more careful. We don't want her to get broken. We wondered why she had orinch bath water.ReplyDelete
Oh #1, that's such a bummer! (sorry, I had to do it).ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful (short) trip!
You sure are brave getting near that wet stuff!ReplyDelete
Benny & Lily
You are a good nurse, Tama!! I'm glad to hear that #1 is alright! I bet those salts helped a lot! I visited a Japanese Onsen last year and it was amazing!ReplyDelete
you are so sweet to risk that water to check on your bean! well done on the balancing! mom says you are a very beautiful kitty!ReplyDelete
she also says when she was a young'n she fell down some stairs too- while holding onto one of her cats!! can you believe that- she said the cat knew what was coming and got the heck away from her. so she can sympathize with your ouchies!!
Poor #1. I hope she is feeling better now.ReplyDelete
Oh we are so sorry #1 fell down the stairs! Our mom has had that happen before too (though ours aren't stone, so she said that it probably wasn't nearly as bad). We think that you did a great job of keeping an eye on her Tama - you are a very good caretaker! We hope #1 isn't sore for too long!ReplyDelete
I've been to Arima on-sen! Loved it.ReplyDelete
Hope you feel better soon, #1!!!
Good thing you watched after her. Orange bath water? That is different. Hope she feels better soon. :)ReplyDelete
You are very good nurse, Tama-Chan :-) I'm glad #1 feels better. I love Japanese hot springs bath salts. I want to go to Arima Onsen some day.ReplyDelete
Hope #1 is not too sore while she is away trying to do things. Lucky for her, she has plenty of furries to welcome her back after her short trip (and to monitor any soaking bath she might need when she arrives home).ReplyDelete
Oh no! Poor # 1. Tama, you gave the right advice & that looks like a really nice bathtub for soaking. You remind me of my old kitty Monger; he used to sit on the side of the tub when BB was little and taking her baths. We always gave him a cup of water and called it his "tea party." Tell # 1 to have a fun time at the agriculture show!ReplyDelete
Sorry to here about the fall, sounds painful! We thought you had gone rusty when we saw the colour of the bath water! Phew relief!ReplyDelete
Tama you did well supervising the bath and great work on the surfing!
Big Nose Pokes
Odaijini! Hope #1 is fully recovered from the tumble down the stairs. I was so envious of the visit/work at the Salon de l'Agriculture in Paris - what a fun thing to do. And it's a good thing there are kitties to take care of the house while #1 is away.ReplyDelete
Tama, can you give Figaro bathtub surfing lessons? Seems he falls in almost all the time!ReplyDelete
Poor #1! That would have hurt lots! The PM was taking the wee ones car seats to the car at her sisters a few months ago and was going down the stairs and slipped and went down the rest on the rear end. Seats went flying! Hurt her tailbone and that takes FOREVER to heal. :(ReplyDelete
Hope that soak helped!!
MOL, we had to look twice when we looked at that bath water first! WE thought it was dirty water till we read it was some fancy orange bath stuff!ReplyDelete
