Tommy Thursday

Tommy: You know I am a pretty friendly guy, and I always make new friends. I met this really cool guy earlier this week, and his name is Homer!

Here, also, are a couple of fun photos #1 took before she left:

Mr. G was busy until this afternoon, so Fernant's Mum, Ms. H, has been looking after us, but Mr. G takes over this evening!

Wednesday Whinnies

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Dear Friends! It's me again! I don't have a great deal to tell you as I have continued to be a lady of leisure, enjoying being brushed and generally fussed over by #1, and then getting my treat bucket. Like so:

As you can see, my bucket matches my headcollar!

I do have some fun news, come to think of it. Remember my little sister Heloise? Well, she is now one year old and #1 tells me that she will soon be coming for a little course at Miss C's Finishing School for Fillies! I am really looking forward to meeting her, as I have not yet met her in person!

Oh, and I was supposed to tell you about #1 leaving again today. She is going to England because The Big V is taking part in the  centenary celebration of the British Percheron Horse Society next weekend! A friend of #1's gave him a pre-wash over the weekend:

#1 will give him a big spa treatment on Thursday. 

He also got some new shoes and Mr. R has been practicing riding him!

Everyone at Poupounette Central is sending good wishes to our Big V!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: You know what? I had never tried what all of you call "Bird TV" (or that's what I thought) so I decided to give it a go the other evening. #1 said I was a real purist. What do you think she meant?

I know it's hard to see, but I am right up against the TV screen.

Ah well, so much for that. I would almost say it's more fun to do #1's bathtime assistant duty.

Or hang out and do a dangle on the cat tree in the kitchen:

Yes. It's a little bit tilty.

Occasionally in the of my Beebsy son:

After which I can go back to the study and have a nice little snooze in the basket above #1's desk. It used to be one of Sei-Chan's special places, and I have now claimed it.

 Guess what? #1 is abandoning us again. Violette will give you the details tomorrow.

Manly Monday

Tommy: We have been having big thunderstorms lately. It's a good job we are all so manly and not afraid of thunder boomies around here! It also means that the fields are pretty wet!

Do you like my smile?

Last Friday night, I went out dining with #1 and some of her friends, and I scored big time! I got nice helpings of duck and beef!!!

Da Beebs: Do you need something #1?

In that case, I shall return to my bath...

Da Genj: I really don't know why #1 thought my eating style so funny!

I'm also beginning to think that #1 has a thing about bathtime photos...

This past weekend was the Fête des Voisins (Neighbour's Celeiration) in France and, in honour of that, here are our kitty neighbours. First Basha:

Then Merlin!

We thought we wouldn't have any fresh pics of The Big V but a friend of #1's sent her one yesterday evening!  #1 is going to England again this week, and there should be lots more pics of him next week!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: Greetings, Dear Friends, and welcome to Snuggles on Sunday. We have had a pretty snuggly week and I have some good photos to share with you.

We will start with a snuggle pic of #1 and Miss Violette:

And a rather hilarious selfie those two took together!

#1 also took a great snuggle selfie with Violette's Mama, Hotesse:

I have also been doing some snuggling with #1:

My Beebs can be an incredibly soppy boy:

As for Genji, he is... well... Genji!

Last but not least, #1 and Tommy took this snuggle selfie together!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: I am happy to be back for my weekly hello to all of you. You know #1 dreamed to me the other day that she feels that she can sometimes see me running through the house. Isn't that amazing?

Let me see what I have for you today. I thought I might start with a shot of me. #1 says tere is something a little magical about this one.

As you gathered from last week's post. Sen-Chan was a pretty adventurous kitty (actually, he still is...). He enjoyed climbing trees but didn't always know how to get down!

Dangling is a bit of a speciality at Poupounette Central and, as you can see, Yuu-Chan wa salso very proficient at it. His combo hind legs and tail dangle was truly exceptional!

Ikkyu, for his part, specialised in his unique kind of dangle!

I shall conclude, once again, with sweet Trav. It took me some time to locate him up here and he was a bit unsure at first, but I think I am succeeding in bringing him out of his shell. 

 We all wish all of you a lovely weekend, and sweet dreams of the ones who have left.

Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty neighs, Everyone! I hope you have all been well. I have been a lady of leisure recently because Ms. C's knee injury has prevented her form doing anything much, but I am told that the break will end shortly as she is better!

In the meantime, #1 has been coming regularly to see me, and brush me, and introduce me to her friends. A nice lady called Ms. C (also!) came to see me this week. She is American but normally lives in Berlin. She loved brushing me!

#1 also got me a new pink Himalayan pink alt lick. They are very yummy!

Then, a couple of days, I got my regular pedi!

Mr. P is a great farrier and he takes really good care of my feet. I get shoes on my front feet and I am barefoot on the back feet. But my back feet also get trimmed. I thought I would show you the difference between trimmed (my hind left hoof) and untrimmed (hind right). 

And look how lovely my new shoes are!

Do you think I am looking good?

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: The weather is turning a little more stormy, and the grass is now so high in the fields that not losing the ball is becoming more and more of a challenge!

I think this next one says it all!
