Genji's Sixth Gotcha Day

#1 here. However hard I try, I just cannot get my head around the fact that little Genji has actually been with us for six whole years! It seems just yesterday that i drove to the airport in Paris to collect him. Here he is on arrival , with his breeder Ms. S:

And with me also at the airport:

The three other Chans are all related, so Genji was a bit of an outsider but he adapted so quickly and so well. He never even got hissed at! he is without a doubt the snuggliest of the Chans but he can also be a very annoying little brother, especially as far as the girls are concerned! Still, we all love him with all our hearts!

He gave us a big scare last year when he came down with a bad case of pancreatitis, but he has made a great recovery, and we are crossing every finger, toe, paw and hoof in the house that he will stay this way!

De Genj, as he is often known, loves his Kickaroo! 

But perhaps he has ambitions to become a Sumo wrestler?

He looks great whatever the background or colour!

Thank you, little blue boy, aka The Shining Prince, for sharing your life with us. We love you!
From your #1, Da Beebs, Tama-Chan. Sei-Chan, Tommy Vidock and Violette


  1. Happy gotcha day, Genji! I have a special place in my heart for you, maybe because I have so many blue relatives! And I have a new one too - my half-brother Sizzle just became a father to one blue boy Somali kitten!

  7. Bonjour mon cousin.
    Je te souhaite un super joyeux anniversaire d'adoption.
    Tu avais la même tête rigolote que moi quand tu étais chaton. Des mignonnes... petites oreilles.

  8. Happy Gotcha Day Genji ! We hope you had a wonderful day filled with treats and cuddles ! Purrs

  9. Happy Gotcha Day to our shining prince! I remember like it was only yesterday ( simply cannot be 6 years ago) when #1 posted the photo of a little blue boy hugging her at the airport. We were amazed that this beautiful little fellow showed such affection for a bean he'd never seen before. Maybe because he was a kitty from the outside that our hearts went out to him. He
    had such wide-eyed wonder and the most magnificent
    set of ears one could ever imagine. He's certainly been a delight to know and iwe've enjoyed watching him grow into mancathood and following his adventures.
    Give hin all of our love and great big kisses on this special day.
    And yes, does have an unerring sense of colour!

  10. It doesn't seem like six years to us either. Happy Gotcha Day, Genji!!!
