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.
Sei-Chan: I am a little late in posting as we have been getting up pretty late these past few days. Ater one day of nice weather on Thursday, we are back to grey wind and rain. But we shouldn't complain as many of our North American friends are in a real deep-freeze.
Needless to say, the gloomy weather has also had a negative effect on photo-taking, so I don't have much to share with you today. Just one measly photo!
I have been spending time in the little igloo bed which is on the landing, so offers a great supervisory vantage point:
#1 told me to tell you that I have been taking my medicine like a good girl, and that she is very proud of me!
