"Joy" on Sunday!

#1 here, posting from Japan. Do you guys remember when I was last in Japan, in June, and I posted about a kitten and her Mama who had been rescued by friends of mine? The first post about them was here, and then I wrote about calling the kitten Joy here. Well, in the 5 months since that time, the kitten has grown, a lot, and I had the good fortune to visit her again yesterday!

Since Joy and her Mama were rescued by a horse trainer, there is a lot of harness lying around. It looks like little Joy particularly enjoys collars!

Playing hide and seek with her Mama! It's Mama-Cat who is looking out.

More collar games:

Enjoying some of Mr. N's milk. He is the one who saved the kitties!

Little Joy discovered my backpack and spent quite a bit of time discovering al of its Chan smells!

It was fun to see Joy again, almost grown up!

Singin' SEIturday

Sei-Chan: I am doing a virtual duet with #1 in Tokyo...

"I am sailing
I am sailing
Home again
'Cross the sea
I am sailing,
Stormy waters
To be near you,
To be free"

Almost Wordless Wednesday

The Gang: #1 sent us this photo of the perfect socks she found in Tokyo!

Can you see that there is a kitty standing on top of the horse? We're not sure if this means we will be getting a chicken anytime soon, but the neighbour's chickens occasionally wander in our garden!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: You remember how, in the past, we have said several time show much we like the routine and the boring? Can there be truer words? We have had enough excitement to last us for a good long while ,and we are now in need of calm and relaxation!

These are not new photos, as they were taken by #1 before she left, but they give you the idea:

Manly Monday

Tommy: #1 had updates from Mr. G and Ms. N and we are all doing well. We will now endeavour to put all of this horror behind us as we wait for #1 to return from us.

We do have some manly pics that #1 took before she left to share.

Snuggles on Sunday: Dedicated to the One We Love!

The Chans & Tommy: We would like to dedicate today's SoS post to our hero, Mr. G. We have to tell you that, in his case, G stands for Gabriel, and he is truly our angel!

Here is a photo of him with our cousin Tora-Chan, who is one of his kitties:

And one of him with Tommy:

Three cheers for Mr.G!

And #1 says thank you for all the lovely supportive messages yesterday. She was tearing her hair out there for about 24 hours. She is beyond angry with the sitters who were first-timers with us (and last timers too). She says she will contact the house-sitting site and tell them all about her experience.

Shocked SEIturday

Sei-Chan: Gentle readers, we are in shock. All of us. #1 received a note from our sitters saying that they were totally horrified at having to clean six litterboxes (the actual word for word was  "We been cleaning shit ever since u left" and that this is taking all their time and making them sick, and it's too much responsibility caring for a sick animal (that refers to putting drops of medicine in my dry food). Anyway, long story short, they are packing their bags and have told #1 that whether she finds someone else or not, they are leaving on Sunday. As I said, we are in shock. Imagine how #1 is feeling, at the other end of the world.

We are hoping that our saviour, the wonderful Mr. G will be able to step in and take over. Please cross your paws he can!

STOP PRESS: #1 just got through to Mr. G and he will look after us. Three cheers for Mr. G!

Tommy Thursday

Tommy: The weather was lovely just before #1 left, although it has been getting colder, and she and I had some really fun times in the fields.

Come on, #1, let's go play!

It was wet out in the field!

But  the ears were flying!

PS: We heard from #1. She has arrived safely!

Wednesday Whinnies

Vidock: #1 is on her way to Japan and we will miss her very much, but before she left, she came to see us yesterday with even more treats than usual and the nice house-sitters. Here I am with her and with Mr. S, as well as woofie, Diddle:

They stopped by to say hello to Violette too:

And then they went to visit Hotesse, Heloise and Doucette! Please meet Ms. J and Mr.S:

They got  nice pics of #1 handing out treats:

 Come back quickly #1!

Tama-Chan Tuesday

Tama-Chan: Our sitters arrived last night, in time for dinner, and we like them. I have already done some serious snuggling with Ms. J! You may leave now, #1...

This time of year, you take the sunpuddles where you can get them:

He's behind me, isn't he?

A little bathing is always good for the soul:

And here, in parting, is an evening glow pic. #1 tried it with the flash but it just gave me laser eyes. I rather like this one, don't you?

Manly Monday

Tommy: Woofs, everyone! our sitters are arriving this evening and I got a shampoo and shower so I am even handsomer than usual for their arrival!

And a blow-dry too!

Da Genj: She had better not try that on us kitties!

The claws of doom are ready...

Da Beebs: She would never do anything so awful to me!

 I helped #1 get the bed ready for the sitters. Da Genj wanted to help too, but I got there first!

Vidock: #1 tells me that this is a very important month for me because I will have another big adventure when she comes back. In the meantime...

Have a great week, everyone!
