SEIturday Once More!

Sei-Chan: What a week it has been! So much worry about what has been going on in Japan, fuelled by the shameless international media for whom the more catastrophic the better. There is a well-measured riposte to all that here.

The brave people of Tohoku are finding comfort and smiles wherever they can, and so we consider it our duty to delight in every moment. As you know, I took an early fancy to our new "Ess" and continue to enjoy it enormously.

But the question is this: do you think it makes my bum look big?

Yesterday, we showed you the delights of our Kitchen Bird TV Channel. Believe it or not, we do even better on the Study Channel because, aside from the numerous birdies who come to the feeder, we also get this...

This little guy lives under the roof tiles and occasionally comes out to get his share of sunflower seeds! He kept Bibi-Chan and me quite transfixed yesterday!

So much so that it tired us right out:

#1 noticed that today's theme for Photo Hunt is "License Plate." We don't usually play Photo Hunt but we just couldn't resist this one. You see, when she lived in Chicago, #1 had the following license plate:

IKKYU was of course her very first cat, who lived with her at the time, and 3 is read "san" in Japanese, making a plate that read "IKKYU-SAN" or Mr. Ikkyu!

Too bad there are no vanity plates in France...

Have a great weekend, everyone!


  1. Thanks so much for the link. As we have been saying ..........

    Love your pictures today and that license plate is awesome!

  2. Bibi-Chan
    I posted your award on my blog because I am not confident in the peemails to France. So come and get it. Besides, it was a good excuse to let everybody know that their awards are coming and to make sure they ALL got to their destinations (plus your photo is quite stunning).


  3. You have mouse tv? How cool is that?!

    Love the license plate. Have a great weekend.

  4. Our kitties are enjoying their channels, too. They have the kitchen channel and the living room channel, mostly.

    I love the license plate. We have vanity plates here, but our humans seem to be too cheap to get them.

    Uh oh - my captcha word says, "mange". That's not a good word at all.

  5. What a wonderful licence place #1 had in Chicago. We love your mouse TV and would like one of our very own - we think we'll soon be getting birdie TV as Lucy has been investigating the tree in the next garden. Fortunately the tree is a conifer of sort so mum thinks it will be too thick for her to climb up inside. She keeps sitting and staring at it so watch this space!

  6. Is it all license plate in France have that many words? Ours have more numbers than the words thou


  7. A great Seiturday post. We agree with you about enjoying every moment and also turn our bottoms of disrespect to the media loving all the panic.

  8. We like your great plate! Excellent

  9. I think that your tail is greatly enhanced by the rich colours of the carpet. Nice photo of your rear!

  10. That is a great license plate!!

    My human has been frustrated by all the media coverage about the Japanese nuclear plants too - she had no idea who to believe or what to think!

  11. Your butt is perfectly lovely Sei-Chan! We like your license plate.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  13. The mom wants a vanity plate wif TT's name but she is too cheap to buy it right now. MOL We fink dat is a pawsome idea for a plate though.

    Question, as we heard yer #1 can translate (and google tends to do a bad job) we found this blog - we know its from a person whose daughter lives on Cat Island Japan -

    We wanted to share some news wif yoo about it.

  14. Thanks for the link to that report on Japan. It is often very difficult to filter through all the differing stories.

    We just have regular number and letter plates here, the vanity plates cost lots of extra green papers. But the Momster enjoys seeing them all and trying to figure out what they are saying.

    Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
