Tommy's Thorny Thursday!

Tom: Woofs Everyone, Tommy here! You all know that #1 taught me a long time ago that I should never harm any other living being, and I am always very good about that when I am out and about. Lately, when we go out late at night, i have added a new twist to this: I let #1 know when our friend Mr. Hedgehog is out in the garden! That way, she can put a little food out for  him.

It's hard to take photos at night, but here he is:

We have decided to call him "Thor"! So, as full "outside members" of the Poupounette Gang, that makes Rufus and Thor. Now we are waiting to see if our barn owl family is active again this summer.

In other news, the first day of Sei-Chan's diet went quite well. We think she is quite enjoying the individual attention! The other kitties are a little puzzled, however, at the disappearance of their usual buffet.

I have been having fun running around in the fields where the grass is growing fast and the dandelions are blooming!

Even though it's now been dry for several days, I managed to find the one remaining mud puddle to lie in a couple of days ago. #1 was not amused, and I got the hose...

So now I'm back to looking my usual sparkling clean self!

Finally, today being gardening day, I should tell you that our big cherry tree has finally begun to bloom:

And our bluebells are in bloom!

Of course, the bluebells are wild so there was no gardening involved!


  1. How nice to see you outside once again enjoying the sun. Thor is looking shy unlike Rufus. We are glad that Sei -chan enjoys her diet. Bujang usually makes a fuss.

  2. oooh... cherry blossoms! I love them!

    Tommy, you look handsome, with or without mud!!

    Have a lovely day, everybuddy!

  3. Tommy, we are sure you are smiling in the photo with the dandelions! Too bad #1 didn't think the mud puddle was not amusing. We did! MOL!

  4. "I got the hose" made mom snicker.....

    your yard is just so lovely....

  5. Spring has certainly sprung. You look very handsomes in the sunshines Tommy.

  6. Cherries! Do your birdies eat them all the way they do my brother's trees?

  7. Isn't it great to get outside without getting wet Tommy - unless of course you find a puddle!! We hope Sei-Chan soon gets her slim-line tummy back.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  8. You are such a lovely dog, Tommy. Not only beautiful beyond words but sweet and loving. We love you so!
    Hurrah for Sei-Chan and her diet. A little extra attention goes a long way with us kitties.
    Hello Thor! We are pleased to meet you. You've become a member of the Poupounette gang? It's your lucky day!
    Love to all.

  9. Oh Tommy your pet Mr. Hedgehog s taking care of your garden. He is doing a good job

  10. So nice to meet Mr. Thor - your title made us think you were going to tell us why the Momster should be planting thorny plants:)

  11. Et dans six semaines ... des cerises!
    Tu aimes les cerises Tommy ?
    Hisia se demande comment va faire Genji si il n'y a plus de buffet félin.. il va mourir de faim !

  12. How cool that you have a garden hedgehog! I have never seen a hedgehog IRL, nor has my human.

    Thor could win any contest for 'camouflage' or 'find the animal' and you're such a good doggy, Tommy, to show him to #1 so he gets fed. purrsss Katie

  14. Hi, you have a lovely blog! The first time that we checked it! The thing about a hedgehog moved us, because here in north Finland we are just now waiting when the first hedgehog will turn up in our yard after winter, it's so exciting to wait for him/her!

    Love from
    Riffa (formerly a StrayCat in Spain, now a DomesticatedCat in Finland; Oliver (formerly an unwanted pet in Finland, now a very much loved pet in Finland) and their Auntie.

  15. Tommy those pictures of you are very lovely. Glad you are getting out and about. The bluebells are lovely and the blossom. Mum loves the bluebells. Thor welcome. You have joined a splendid gang and you wont go hungry with #1 there.. Hugs GJ x

  16. I hope #1 gets to take more pics of Thor! I wanna see him more!
    Great news about Sei-Chan's successful diet!

  17. Gee, Thor blends with the ground ;)
    How nice to see the flowers and grass! You look very happy in the grass too Tommy!
    It is still quite cool here,but Mom says we have sunny and warm days ahead starting this weekend. WooHoo!

  18. Haha! Tommy, leave it to you to find the only mud puddle around. Good job!

  19. The flowers that just show up are the bestest of all. Mother nature putting on a show.

    And the flowers! They looks great!
