Thoughtful Thursday

: Hi. It's me and guess what? I am 8 months old today! Two-thirds of the way towards becoming an official mancat!

Here is a picture of me with one of my favourite toys:

And one of me napping. Do you like my collar? It has blue and white hearts on it!

I am lucky in that I have such a great family who all love me and play with me and look after me. Of course, the bestest of the bestest (aside from #1) is my woofie brother, Tommy! He gives me all kinds of great advice!

So why did I use "thoughtful" in my title today? Well, #1 has been explaining to me how each and every one of us is like a bight ray of sunlight in the lives of our people, so that when anything bad happens to us, they are terribly sad. I was not here at the time, but do you remember Mr. S and Ms. L who were here exactly a year ago, when #1 went to Japan? They were so kind and looked after everyone so well! Well, one of their kitties, Calvin, had to go to the Bridge this week after a nasty "Big C" diagnosis and we feel so bad for them. Big purrs from all of us to our dear friends, and to Calvin's brother, Hobbes.

Here is a picture of Calvin to remember him by:

Fly free, Sweet Calvin!


  1. The big "C" is the worst enenmy of all beings. Calvin must have brought a lot of light into his humans life, he looks like a fab mancat. Purrs to his brofur and his humans.
    And concats on having so much fun on your road to mancatdom, Genji!

  2. We are sending heartfelt purrs to Mr. S and Ms. L and to Hobbes. We know Calvin will now be flying high and healthy, awaiting their reunion.

    Happy 8th Month Day little mate :)

  3. Genji, you are growing up really fast. That is so sad about Calvin. Cancer is a terrible disease. Our mom has it and it is very scary. We are sending lots of hugs to Calvin's beans. Take care.

  4. Such a great post from such a young-un'

    Tommy has taught woo well!

    The Evil c needs to get its own c -

    PeeEssWoo: Hi Tommy!

  5. Oh that dreaded " C thing"!
    Our prayers for your friend Calvin and his family.


  6. We are so sorry to hear about sweet Calvin having to cross the bridge. The big C is an evil disease and we purray there will be a cure found for all cancers soon. We will purr for Mr S and Ms L.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. That pic of you getting advice from Tommy was so sweet :)

    Sorry to hear about Calvin... R.I.P.

  8. Happy 8th birthday Genji-Chan. Your blue collar is just beautiful.

    We are sorry about Calvin. We know how horrible C can be.

    the amigos and san

  9. The evil "C" sux! Purrs to Calvin's family. Little Gen-chan, you are becoming quite the handsum mancat! We luf your beautiful color!

  10. We are very sad about Calvin. What a handsome fellow he was. The Woman says that orange cats always tug at their owners heart strings so strongly I bet he was very loved.

    We are so glad you reached the 8 month milestone Genji! Is there a little party?

  11. The only sad thing about us kitties is that we don't live forever. Purrs to Mr. S and Ms. L, and to Hobbes today.

  12. I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful friend Calvin.

  13. Genji, we know you wanna be a big mancat, but take it from me, Abby, that giving up the kitten license isn't something you ever have to do! I will be 4 years old later this month, and I am still a kitten. I let Ms. C know every day!

  14. Happy Happy birthday Mr. Genji !!! I hope you have a fabulous day : )

    Me and mom are sorry about Calvin.
    Purrs for his family
    (((HUGS )))

  15. Bye Calvin, gorgeous ginger, see you at The Bridge.

  16. You look so cute on your shots :)

  17. We are so sorry to hear about Calvin. That"C" is pure evil. We wish some humans would find a way to get rid of it forever. Soft woos and gentle hugs to his family from us.

    Genji, you are so lucky to have such a great brother like Tommy.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  18. That is terrible, and so sad. It hurts when our kitties have to leave us. Our purrs are with them. But Genji, what a fine young mancat you are! Don't be in such a rush to grow up. The young always are!

  19. I'm very sorry that you've lost your friend Calvin.

    Nice woooh

  20. Genji, you are a fine looking boy :)
    You have a super home too!!
    We join you in offering comforting purrs to Mr S and Ms L on the loss of Calvin. He was a mighty nice looking kitty.
    Purrs Tillie & Georgia,

  21. Wow, where does the time go? You're almost an adult cat already.
