First, in June 2008, came a young sorrel Abyssinian cat called Sen-Chan and a slightly younger English Springer Spaniel called Tom. In October 2008, they were joined by Tama-Chan, a ruddy Abyssinian girl kitten. The three lived so happily together, playing and cuddling in the French countryside with their mistress, known as #1. But in early January 2009, tragedy struck and Sen-Chan went to the Bridge at not yet 18 months. For a while, it was just Tom and Tama-Chan and #1, remembering sweet and gentle Sen-Chan, and the one who came before him, the fierce and noble Ikkyu. But then, in April 2009, a little red furrball, Sei-Chan, joined the family! She was followed in October 2009 by Yuu-Chan, a playful but very mellow little sorrel boy. And then Tama-Chan had kittens and little Bibi, a ruddy male, stayed with us. Sadly, we lost our beloved Yuu-Chan in September 2010, but we soldier on and live and love in our little corner of rural France. And we now have a big little brother in Vidock, a Percheron stallion, a little little brother in Genji, a blue Abyssinian, and a big little sister in Violette, a Percheron mare.
Da Genj: So, you heard that I ended up at the vet's on Monday? And that I was not alone? I just cannot believe that Queen Tama insisted on coming along, and then we ended up in the same carrier! Can you believe that?
As you can see, it was pretty cozy but #1 noticed that we both seemed happier than when travelling alone in a carrier. Of course, I am a little guy. Had it been Da (Big) Beebs instead of me, fur might have been flying...
Anyway, #1 wanted to say thanks for all the good wishes. As usual, Tama is being a total sweetheart about taking her meds, and I am being a nightmare. The only way she can get the paste for the diarrhea down me is to put it on my paw for me to lick off.
