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.
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.
