Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: You should see that little white fluffball. He is so chuffed that he got to have the Monday post all to himself! Well, #1 told him quite clearly that it was just this once. He simply does not have the seniority for a dedicated weekly post.

Now to me... We have had some delightful sunpuddles of late and I have been enjoying sunbathing (but very glad to be indoors as it is chilly outside!).

Here I am, at the kitchen French doors, combining sunbathing with a little dangle:

And talking of dangles,...

The not so good news is that #1 is going away for a few days. She leaves for Pris at noon tomorrow, and won't be back until Friday evening. She is going to the big agricultural fair in Paris (Salon International de l'Agriculture) where heavy horses are shown in addition to cows, sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and cats, as well as great food from all over France. She is also meeting up with her good friends from Luxembourg and they are going to some fancy exhibition at the Louvre on Friday. Mr. G will be looking after us, so we will be fine, but I need to be more alert than usual when #1 isn't around to protect me from the t.h.u.g.

Momo Monday!


Momo-Chan: Mioyez, Mioyez! I hereby announce that, exceptionally, #1 has agreed that today should be a Momo Monday! Why you may wonder? Well, there was quite a bit of interest in my sky hammock picture the other day, and I thought it would be nice to show you some more pictures as many of our current friends won't remember the hammocks from way back.

The sky hammocks (there are two) are located in #1's study. This room has not been used much lately as #1 is trying to save on heating bills and it's a big space. But, as you know, heat rises, so it's nice up there.

This is the view you get as you come up the stairs to the study:

As you can see, there are old oak beams in this space, so #1 was able to hang the hammocks over them. I like the blue hammock as I think I would get lost in the white one!

This is also a common sight that #1 see when she comes up the stairs:

And this when she holds her hands way up, standing on the floor of the study:

The hammock is great for many reasons, one of them being that I can look really cute in it!


I hope you enjoyed my hammock tour! #1 says she is going to try and find some pictures of our Rainbow Gang using the hammocks for next Saturday's Souvenir post.

Have a great week, everyone!

Followed by her little sis, Heloise:

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: We are a little late posting today, for which we apologise. We do have a full set of photos of all of us at the Bridge to share with you!

We start with Ikkyu. He also liked to help #1 with her work:

Next is Sen-Chan:

#1 found this sweet photo of me (R) and Yuu-Chan (L):

Here is little Genji. I say little because he really was the teeniest of all of us at Poupounette Central, although he had some of the biggest frootbats!

The one and only Da Beebs asking for something very vocally!

Here is a fun one of Tommy with one his many favourite balls:

Last but not least for today is our beautiful Hotesse. She is so lovely and kind and gives us all rides in the endless meadows at the Bridge! This photo was taken on her 25th birthday.

Family Friday


Benny: We always like to feature photos that show us as a loving family. It is important for us to be together and spend some, if not all time, each day, in total harmony!

I have loved hanging out with my bro, Ollie, since I first came to live at Poupounette Central:

And my little bro, Momo, often joins us:

And sometimes, quite exceptionally, we managed to get all of us kitties, including Queen Tama,  plus Ollie in the pic!

And here is a pic from earlier this week with, from left to right, Heloise, Violette and Vidock in the mist!

We are family!

Wednesday Whinnies


Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! It's been a while, hasn't it? But #1 came to see up up close and personal on Monday when the farrier gave us all hooficures, so we have some nice photos to share with you. 

The order always seems to be the same with The Big V going first:

Then, it's my little sister Heloise:

And #1 always saves the best for last, me!

You can see my sis, Heloise, peeking out from behind my rump. It was a very foggy morning and #1 got some atmospheric pics of us. The first is me:

And then there's The Big V and Heloise:

Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Welcome, Dear Friends, and apologies for posting a little later than usual. #1 suspects that the antibiotics she is taking for her eye are making her extra sleepy and sapping her energy. It's always something, isn't it?

As you can imagine, she needs my help even more than usual with blogging and her work:

And I keep a close eye on her in the evenings, when she nods off in front of the TV:

And I still find time to look cute for her and do my dangles!

I hope you all have a lovely Tuesday.

Manly Monday


Ollie: #1 got this pic of me before she took my play toya away from me. She says that if I take them outside, I will just leave them there and they will get wet!

The Big V: Come on, #1! Hurry up with the apples and carrots!

Benny: This alpaca throw is really nice and comfy!

Momo: Even when they are small, sunpuddles are wonderful!

Wishing everyone a great week!

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: Greetings, Dear Friends! Can you believe it's already Sunday again? I can't! We have had a good snuggle week and have a good selection of pics to share with you.

First off, #1 managed to get a sort of snuggle pic with The Big V!

The farrier is coming to do everyone's hooficures tomorrow, so #1 hopes she can get a full set of horsey snuggle pics for next Sunday.

I have of course been snuggling with #1 as I always do:

And when we had our Scrabble guest, Ms. R, here last Sunday, I snuggled with her too!

Momo has been snuggling with Ollie, as usual:

And  Benny has been snuggling with #1:

This one is a bit hard to make out, but it's Ollie snuggled up to #1 in bed:

And that's our SoS post for today. Remember to snuggle with your loved ones today and every day!

Sei-Chan's Short Selfie Souvenir Saturday


Rainbow Sei: Hello, Dear Friends! #1 was in Paris yesterday and finally got to see her ophthalmic surgeon! She apparently has some strange infection in her lashes and eyelids and has to take antibiotics for at least a month! Anyway, she got back late and was tired, so today, I give you just a few shots of me in my prime for your pleasure!

We will make sure to be back with a full souvenir post next week!
