Violette Vendredi

Violette: Pretty Neighs, Everyone. Apparently, it is spring! Our clocks are springing forward this weekend in Europe and so there will be more daylight grazing time. I wish it would get a little warmer, though. It really has been quite chilly lately.

Anyneigh, I got my first new pair of shoes in a long time this week! The last time was in mid-October last year. Normally, we get to see the farrier every couple of months, and I have to confess hat it was my fault. You see, #1 arranged for the farrier to come in January and they couldn't catch me. I was simply not in the mood for shoes. But that sneaky farrier managed to find me and he turned up in my new home. Can you believe that?

I have to say I really, really needed his services. You know what it's like when your hoofs grow too long...

First I got a trim:

Then my new shoes were fitted (I am only shod at the front):

A last bit of rasping...

And voila! Beautifully shod feet!

And then I got my treat bucket!

I really can't recall why I didn't want my pedicure last time...

Travelling Tommy Thursday

Tommy: Woofs, everyone. Tommy here! Guess what? I am going on an adventure with #1 today! I feel a little bit bad about leaving the Chans, but Mr. G will take good care of them, and we will only be gone till Sunday afternoon.

We are going to be heading east from here and, after Paris, we will go north east. We are going to Luxembourg to visit a school friend of #1's who lives there. #1 went there last year and they came to visit in July and they said that, next time, I had to come too! Isn't that exciting?

 In fact, I am totally beside myself with excitement!!!

I also wanted to  tell you know about a new friend I made. He is a beagle and his name is Moody:

Now, if you will excuse me, I have to finish packing. We are leaving mid-morning and returning on Sunday and, if everything  goes as planned, we will be going not just to  Luxembourg, but also to Germany and Belgium. I will of course be doing a full photo-reportage of my travels!

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!
