Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Welcome, Dear Friends, to the best day of the week. We have a great post for you today as Mr. G took lots and lots of photos of me the other day. The only problem is to figure out which ones to use!

To start with, there was that little visit from my boy, Bibi following the post about him. I know I hissed at him when he was here, but I do miss him.

Then, Mr. G caught me as I was relaxing in my beddie:

And then, when I awoke from my nap, he captured my ablutions:

Some of you may know that #1 plays Scrabble regularly with a friend, and she has been on a real winning streak of late. Well, here you have the reason why:

Thanks for checking in, Dear Friends!

Manly Monday


Vidock: As I am going off on my summer job on Wednesday, #1 said I could headline this week's manly Monday. And who better, I ask?

#1 is coming over today to give me brushies and make sure I am at my handsomest when I leave on Wednesday.

Ollie: Here is a nice portrait of me taken by Mr. G:

Benny: Enjoying window whiffies in the kitchen!

Momo: Mr. G came up to find me in my hammock in the study!

We have a guest today. We almost kept him for our next Frootbat Friday post but we decided to include him in today's post. Please meet LUPIN! He belongs to Ms. L, Mr. G's sister. Isn't he gorgeous?

We wish you all a very good week!

Snuggles on Sunday


Tama-Chan: Welcome, Dear Friends, to our weekly snuggle post. I am glad to report that we have a good number of photos this week, including several with visitors! I shall start with myself and my usual evening snuggles with #1:

When Mr. G and Ms. N were over for tea, Benny did some snuggling with Mr. G:

As did Ollie!

Ollie also enjoyed snuggles with our friend Ms. S when she visited!

Momo has been snuggling both with Benny and Ollie:

And #1 managed to get a snuggle shot with The Big V ahead of his impending departure on his summer job!

Have a great Sunday, everyone!

Souvenir Saturday - Remembering Da Beebs


#1 here. Almost exactly four years ago, The Poupounette lost one of its brightest stars, our one and only home-grown boy, Da Beebs. I confess that, four years on, I haven't really gotten over the loss of one of the most special boys I have ever had the privilege to love. I am absolutely convinced that his final illness (the complete shutdown of his bile duct system) was triggered by the loss of Tommy, in December 2018, as he was so attached to him. Here are some photos taken during his last few months with us.

January 2019, before he started getting really sick:
