Snuggles on Sunday

Tama-Chan: Greetings, Dear Friends, and welcome to our Snuggles on Sundays. May I start by asking for some purrs for our snuggle champ, that blue pest Genji? He has been off his food and we are all crossing paws that it's just a mild case of indigestion after eating something he shouldn't have in the cat run. #1 is keeping a close eye on him.

This has of course not kept him from snuggling with #1...

For my part, I have been snuggling with my Tommy:

My Beebs has been snuggling with #1:

Here is a cute pic of #1 snuggling with Miss Violette:

And one of #1's friend's mares had a lovely little foal a week ago, so #1 went to meet her and snuggle with her yesterday1

We wish you all a Very Snuggly Sunday!

Sei-Chan's Souvenir Saturday

Rainbow Sei: Greetings, Dear Friends! Are you enjoying the spring weather? It's been a couple of weeks since we had a proper rainbow post and, this week, I would like to start with the one who started it all. #1's very first Aby was Ikkyu, born in Japan in 1992. Here he is:

He was quite a looker, wasn't he? Apparently he kept in shape by doing regular exercises!!!

Sen-Chan was the one who came to #1 when Ikkyu crossed the Bridge. Sadly, he was not to stay with her for very long, but he was a totally magical cat.

I keep saying how sweet Yuu-Chan was, and you can see that in this photo of him and our little cousin, Tora-Chan:

And of course, he had pink pawpads!

As for me, I knew how to cross my paws like no-one else!

 And I too had the pink pawpads!

 Last but not least here is a pic of Trav looking relaxed and happy in a sunpuddle!

Wishing you all happy memories and many snuggles with those you love.

Feline Friday

Genji: There have definitely not been enough cats on this blog the last couple of days! So, here I am with Feline Friday for your pleasure!

Here, to start with, is a joint window whiffies shot of me and Queen Tama:

The view from the other side:

I also rather like this shot of me at the window in the living room:

Here is one of Da Beebs napping right in the middle of a sunpudddle:

And in his sky hammock:

And one more of Queen Tama, looking thoughtful in a sunpuddle:

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: After we had a stinky day on Saturday, the weather has been pretty nice and #1 have been able to go for nice walks in the fields. Except that... the grass is getting really high!

In places, it is even higher than that, and so, I keep losing my ball! I lost my orange ball in the big field yesterday morning. This morning, we went to look for it, and it was #1 who found it.  This afternoon, I took my yellow rugby ball and I almost lost it, but #1 kept an eagle eye on it.

Here I am, trying some camo:

I think this is better:

How about this one?

Wordy Wordless Wednesday

#1 here. I thought you might enjoy a few photos I took in England last week, of Robert Sampson at Harbridge Farm, on the edge of the New Forest in England, disc harrowing one of his fields with 8 Percheron horses (and Ms.C!). This is a sight that few people get to see in our "modern" world. The front horses are one stallion and three mares, and the four back horses are all geldings. In the background is the beautiful Harbridge Church.

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Well, this is a definite improvement on my post of last week, just as #1 was getting ready to leave us. Our weather continues to be strange, going from summer to winter and back on a daily basis. We are no longer sure what season it is.

There are days when we can bask in sunpuddles in the cat run.

And expect to be served breakfast al fresco:

And others when the radiator is the only place to be!

I hope you like my dangle! #1 took this rather odd close-up of me the other day:

It is what you might call a non-dangle!!!

Manly Monday

Da Beebs: Hmmmmmmmm. That looks very nice

I think I should give it a try:

I like it! Or rather, I liked it until a little thug came along...

Tommy: The grass is getting pretty high!

There is nothing better than running through a field with the wind blowing through your hair! 

Vidock: Running through the field with the wind blowing through your hair? I know all about that! Ooops! Maybe I shouldn't have reminded #1 of that... Let me try again. There is nothing more wonderful than standing in the yard getting your tail washed!

She loves me, really, you know!
