Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: As you well know, #1 is not here today (well, she will be back this evening) so the potential for snugging with her is somewhat limited. But we did manage quite a bit of snuggling during the week so we have some photos to share with you.

I shall start with myself. As you know, I like to hang out with #1 in the mornings, when she does her ablutions:

And as you also know, I love to snuggle with Tommy!

Lately, my Beebs has taken to snuggling with #1 in the evenings, when she is watching TV:

Of course, that is if he manages to get to her before Da Genj!

It would seem that Tommy also occasionally snuggle-cheats on us, such as with our neighbour, Merlin:

And here is #1's ultimate (for now) snuggle shot with Violette and The Big V!

Wishing you all a very snuggly Sunday!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: Now wait a minute! I thought that the Rainbow Bridge was going to be all relaxing and playing with my friends who are up here, but I seem to be spending half my time going hither and thither with #1! This weekend, we are going to a very flashy place for the French National Percheron Championships. I feel that I shall need to supervise her very closely. Who knows what trouble she might get into?

In between the madness, I shall be hanging around with my beloved Yuu, just like the old days:

He is such a sweetheart!

Sen-Chan spends a lot of time exploring. Apparently, he always had a great sense of adventure!

Now, Ikkyu, the OWCB all of us, had a reputation as a one-woman kitty who scared most visitors off! But he was a real sweetie with #1!

And Trav, well he has become a really laid back guy!

 It is quite possible that #1 will have no Internet access at all over the weekend, so we apoligise in advance for not commenting.

Feline Friday

Da Beebs: We have had quite a pleasant week here at Poupounette central, and I have to tell you that now that the nights are cooler, I have resumed my post sleeping tucked up against #1 under the covers! It really is the only place to be except that.... she is going away again! She is first going away this weekend, to the French Percheron Championships, so she leaves on Saturday morning and gets back on Sunday evening. We can just about live with that. But the situation is set to degrade rapidly the following weekend as she is getting on a plane on the Saturday and will be gone for two whole weeks, to the World Percheron Conress in the United States. Quite unacceptable.

For a start, I don't understand how she can bear to leave me...

or my Mama Tama...

or my Bro Genj...

What will we do?

As this is feline Friday, I thought I would also tell you that our neighbour Basha (Fernan'ts Bro) has been squatting in our garage. #1 sees him sleeping in a basket there almost every evening!

And we have a nice pic of Miss Daisy to share!

Tommy's Thankful Thursday

Tommy: Remember me telling you recently about all the burrs in the fields at the moment? Here is a photo taken yesterday morning:

Can you see them? Now, here is a photo of my tummy after #1 had already started to remove them:

And here is one of my ears:

And here is what #1 combed out of me:

I was very thankful for the time she spent removing all those nasty little sticky things. As you can see, I was a really good boy for her:

 And it is because I am such a good boy that I get to go out for pizza with her, and I get my very own slice!

For which I am also very thankful!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: After rain through the weekend, the sunshine is back today and will stay with us all week. Hurrah for sunpuddles! But it is getting cooler!

The  other day, I gve #1 quite a surprise. She was coming down the steps from the study when she looked to the left and was taken aback to see me ensconced in what used to be Sei-Chan's beddie, complete with the urn!

Shortly after that, I went to sit on the shelf above the desk, where Sei-Chan also used to sit often:

What can I tell you? I miss my sister...

With the nice weather back, I am hoping to spend a little more time out in the cat run even though #1 really does need to do a little de-jungling work out there.

As you know, I have made dangles into something of a specialty of mine over the years. But I have been thinking something new might be fun too. So, how about airplane ears?

 I need to think a little more on this but, in the meantime, I have also been busy remarking various locations around the living room. A Queen must stay Queen!

Manly Monday

Tommy: I had a busy week last week, accompanying #1 on many outings, including dining out!

And here I am, hanging out at our friend, Ms.C's. Can you see Miss Daisy in the background?

Da Boys: We were both on the same side of the bed when #1 woke up yesterday morning!

Da Beebs: I still think that the sky hammock in the study is one of the best places to be.

 Da Genj: Here is my handsome boy portrait for today:

The Big V: Hay is good but I am hoping that the rain we had over the weekend will make the grass grow a little.

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: We are having our first little bit of rain for weeks and weeks and everyone is happy, so we decided to sleep in today! It has been quite a good week for capturing snuggles on camera, so here goes.

Let's start with my Beebs and Tommy:

He has also been snuggling a lot with #1:

I have also been snuggling with Tommy:

And Da Genj has been snuggling with #1:

This week, we also have snuggle pics with Violette:

And The Big V:

 We wish you all a very snuggly Sunday!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: Where does the time go, Dear Friends? I have been so busy supervising and assisting #1 that the weeks have been flying by. It's a good job that Rainbow Bridge air brings with it much greater stamina, but I do wonder how #1 manages to keep up this schedule!

Anyway, here we are again, and I hope I can find some suitable pics of all of us for this week's post! Let me start with this lovely pic of Sen-Chan behind the Japanese "sudare" bamboo blind, which #1 really likes:

And here is a nice one of me, taken by our Japanese photographer friend, Mr. O:

A fun one of Trav in camo mode:

And one of Yuu enjoying one of the outside sky hammocks:

 Wishing you all a great weekend!

Violette and Vidock Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone. As promised, here we are again, and we have some pretty big news to share with you. You know what they say, about a picture being worth a thousand words, right? So, here is exhibit A:

Can you believe it? The two Vs together at last! So, how did it happen? Simple. Miss Héloise left to return home to our mama and sister:

The big V was beside himself... And my boyfriend Charme is going to his new home in Switzerland in a few weeks, so #1 and Ms. C decided that this was a good time to have us meet "in the hoof". Needless to say, I was not about to have the vapours at the mere sight of him, was I? So I gave him the runaround!

I mean, who does he think he is, right? Fortunately, my sweet donkey friend, Samia, also lives in this field so I have some quality company.

Vidock: Wow! Just WOW! That V girl is something else, you know? There I was, all friendly, like, and she laid back her ears and spat at me!

So I went and got myself a new girlfriend. She is very sweet and her name is Tulipe!

And I am sure that #1 loves ME best!

Violette: No, She loves ME best!
