Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Did somebody say "cute"?

#1 says I look kittenish which is quite the compliment at my age!

I have been doing a bit of dangling.

Yes, I am on the radiator. It is COLD. We haven't really had any snow but the temperatures have plunged. Enough already! 

Upward dangle:

And still helping #1 with her morning ablutions:

There are rumours of another departure by #1 later this week and, apparently, Tommy is involved too. Traitor! Thank goodness for Mr. G. We will keep you posted.

Manly Monday

Da Beebs: We had a very grey weekend and it's supposed to be a mix of rain and snow today, so here is a photo from a few days back, when I found a fab sunpuddle:

Da Genj: #1 tells me I could win a perfect tail tuck-in prize. Any idea what she is talking about?

Tommy: I need to get my beauty sleep because I am going on a fabulous adventure with #1 later this week!

Vidock: It's been snowing in England!

 Have a great week everyone!

Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: It's a bit of a dreary weekend at this end, but Tommy and I have been spending a lot of time together.

As has my Beebs:

Although he has also been doing the undercover stuff:with #1:

Da Genj, on the other hand, has been doing his usual chest warmer stuff!

This week's snuggle prize must go to Violette, However. It helped that Ms. C was there to take lots of pics as she and #1 snuggled!

That is what I call serious snuggling!

Wishing you all a snuggle-filled Sunday!

PS: #1 here. I would like to say a very special thank you to our friend Hisia, and her human, Natacha, for doing the most beautiful post about our Sei-Chan on their blog yesterday, SEIturday. It is in French but you can look at it here. Hisia is a little blue Aby and she is actually a cousin of our Genji's. She had an older sister, a beautiful tabby girl called Loustiquette, who also left unexpectedly at the end of October last year. Sei-Chan and Loustiquette were good friends on the blogosphere, and we like to think that they are now together and having a good miaow.

Sunpuddle Saturday

Da Genj: Hello everyone. It's the weekend again, and we haven't really figured out what to do with our Saturday post yet. But we had some sunpuddles over the last few days, so we decided to go with those for this week:

Wishing you all a nice weekend. We may be getting some snow tomorrow!

Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone! I hope you don't mind getting two horsey posts in one week but, after The Big Vs' post on Wednesday, I felt that I needed one of my very own to show you what I have been doing lately!

The latest fun that #1 and I have been having together is called long-reining. This, as the name implies, is when a human leads a horse on foot, using some long reins. This is used typically in activities such as logging. #1 had always found long-reining to be super-difficult but it seems that her two days of driving in Hampshire last week helped her!

We started out on the quiet lane outside Ms. C's place:

And #1 got me turn around in a wide courtyard:

I was concentrating hard!

We then went into a small orchard:

And we slalomed around the trees!

One of Ms. C's dogs was encouraging me!

And right at the end, Ms. C took over and #1 was able to take some photos. She told me I looked even prettier than usual in this pic:

I am really enjoying all the stuff I am doing, and look forward to doing lots more.

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: is the weather strange where you are? It's been very strange here. We think it's suffering from a major identity crisis! At any rate, we want to think that spring is coming but we hear rumours of another cold front this weekend. #1 and I are trying our best to get out when we can but the fields are still very soggy from all the rain we have had.

As long as I have my ball, I am a happy boy!

Wednesday Whinnies With Vidock

Vidock: Handsome Neighs, EveryFriend! The Big V here, posting from Hampshire with all my latest news. I had the best time last week when #1 came to visit. She said that, following my little "surgery", I was already a lot easier to manage! I am a GOOD BOY!!!

On the first day she was here, it was quite late in the afternoon by the time she had finished her driving lessons and they came to get me, so I was a tad on the muddy side...

The Boss, Mr. R, gave me my last dose of post-op meds:

Only then could I say hello to #1!

I promised her that I would be a very good boy the next day.

The next afternoon, they put a collar and harness on me!

Hitched me to a sports driving vehicle:

And off we went!

We came out of the estate and onto the road. #1 was driving me on a proper vehicle for the very first time!

This is Harbridge Church. Isn't it pretty?

I really enjoyed my outing with #1. She promised to come back mid-April, and bring lots more apples and carrots!
