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.
Genji we love your feather and think you have fabulous Froot Bat ears - they look the same size as your cute little face. Tom - what can we say but thank you for Flying Ears Friday.ReplyDelete
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
It's all in the ears, isn't it?ReplyDelete
You are both so adorable.
Excellent FrootBat training, Gen-chan! And Tommy, so glad to see your flying ears again!ReplyDelete
Nice feathers! Fly Tommy Fly!ReplyDelete
They are major lug holes! Genji, we hope you use them to detect the sound of the food cupboard door from at least 50m away.....ReplyDelete
Our precious Genji has quite the pair of frootbats! He wears them so elegantly. Both he and Sei-chan wear their ears like crowns! We swear, we can see a bit of a mancat in him already! He seems to be growing before our eyes!ReplyDelete
It's feels so good to see Tommy's ears flying again! We bet it feels even better to Tommy! Love to all.
Two cutie patooties!ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend :)

Genji-Chan - you are just so very beautiful. We think you have mastered the froot-bats very well already.ReplyDelete
Tommy, looks like you got to do two things you love - run in the field and have a great time with a stick.
Happy weekend to all!!!

Check out those ears. :)ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend.
Genji, you look worried that nobody will play with you! Don't worry, we think you'll have some takers...ReplyDelete
Tommy, it's so GOOD to see you running again!
Oh Genji, we're sure that feather is lots of fun. We were wondering if #1 still has "the Tube" and if you tried if you fit though it. We bet you would!ReplyDelete
Love those ears!ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend

Young Grasshopper does frootbats purry well!ReplyDelete
Of khourse, flying ears are still the furry best!
Genji, how many times have you killed that feather so far?ReplyDelete
P.S. My word verification today is "bisses!" The spelling is a little off, but the sentiment is there!
We love flying ears too!!!!!ReplyDelete
Now we're wondering if frootbat ears can fly??ReplyDelete
Genji（源氏 ?）, and Tommy, they would fly with their years.ReplyDelete
Field and stick, Tommy, you"re having so much fun.
Good to see you running again. :-)
