Chamade and Saffron are waiting for their first litter!!!
The babies should arrive before the middle of january...

Saffron et Chamade


Birth!! .
Well... OK. human birth!!
We are very happy to announce you the birth of our small chap on Monday, November 24th:-))
Noé arrived with 3 weeks beforehand, and his weight is 3.6 kg .
I was so persuaded that it was not the time (it misses 3 weeks!) that the baby almost was born in the car. and I did not do the proud by arriving at the maternity .
The baby goes marvellously, the older sister, the dad, and the mom are more than happy!!

News about our cats soon... I promise, I swear!!


"Quite new, quite beautiful" ... Our cats have adopted at once the new cat's tree in the porch.
A new place to play and relax...

Carma, Chamade, Jacaranga and Saffron

The place seems so comfortable that our daughter likes to put her doll inside for sleeping!!


Jacaranga, always looking for new ways to annoy her friends:
Firstly, on the other side of the toy box .
Chamade 1 an et Jacaranga 6 mois
.But nothing better than contact .

Did you notice her small wrongly innocent look-like??!!

Chamade with her magnificent winter hair: long, supplied, a real delight when we cross our hands...

Chamade 1 year old
Chamade, 2 months ago, in short "dress" to face the "hot and heat season" of spring and summer;-)

Chamade, 10 months old


I don't know why . Every time I see them drinking together, they remind me the gathering of the big big cats of the jungle who quench thirst to the big water's areas...

Carma and Chamade, 1 year old
No... I REALLY don't know why. because they are as gentle as lambs ;-)


Carma, 1 year old


While our cats enjoy the last beautiful days in their garden, Jacaranga enjoy to annoy Carma, what -I have to admit this.!- is one of her favourite pastimes. All the afternoon, Jacky-the-Pest followed step by step her friend, always trying to get the upper hand and to dislodge the poor Carma.

Carma 1 an, Jacaranga 5 mois Jacaranga makes me think about those little boys who want to get the attention of their girlfriend by finding nothing better that to pull their hairs!!!


What is funny when we make a present to our daughter (besides her great pleasure!), is that the packaging is also an exciting toy for our cats!

This afternoon, 3 young ladies helped our daughter to occupy our cats: great party in the garden! At the end of this day, I don't know who was the most tired between Alexia, Lola, and Fanny, or our cats?!!
Kisses, girls ;-)

Carma, Chamade and Jacky


Sometimes, we unfortunately forget to close the door of toilet, and it happens that we find a big mess . Till now, we thought that Miss Jacaranga was the only guilty .

Jacky, Chamade et Carma

Today. we had to revalue our point of view: Our lovely cats work in team .


When we come from the supermarket, it’s the boredom to store the shopping…
But cats have this inestimable power to make you smile by improvising a new playground with the emptied bags.
Saffron, Jacky, Chamade and Carma

We just have to take these small moments of madness to tell us that happiness is not far away… and illuminate our day!

My sweet Chamade seems to be shorthair actually… Because of summertime (and probably because of… love season and… her madness hormones!)

But this doesn’t alter her nice sweet little face at all ;-)

Chamade, 11 mois


No matter the rain all day long, Jacaranga stayed for a long time in the garden. .
Another one who takes advantage of the natural rain to have more attractive curls;-)

Carma, attractive object!

Today, I wanted to dress all the pergola's posts with sisal so that our cats can claws there and also climb by various ways
But Miss Jacky had decided on it otherwise and I did not advance a lot ;-)

Having finished it with me . Jacky-the-pest continued with chamade. and saffron.!!

Whereas Jacaranga continues to be nasty with Vérone and that this one can't refrain from kissing her,

Chamade 10 mois et Vérone

. Our incorrigible Chamade tries today to seduce Vérone, who remains perplexed


Jacaranga found the ideal place to annoy dogs with no possibility for them to riposte!
in each passage under Jacky's skilful legs, our poor Vérone leaves with some less hairs on the tail!!

Happiness .
Since 2 days we have the great enjoyment to get Jacaranga with us!!
Still a little bit shy but purring and affectionate as one pleases!! Thank you Serina for this small miracle!!

News about our little Jacaranga whom we are looking forward to welcoming

Thanks to Serina for the attractive stories and the beautiful photos (Credits photos = Serina,
Jacaranga 2 mois

Serina told me that Jacaranga was not a gourmand then. how to explain this strategic place just near the chocolate-box?!!

It adorned that our girl Jacaranga behaves as a princess: she eats cleanly, without "hogging", and toilet very regularly: a Lady!!
But I let you judge it :

Jacaranga 2 mois

Isn't she very charming?...


Poor Chamade . She doesn't know more how to quench .(how to say?!!). the call of the nature . Without Saffron to answer her ceaseless appeals, nor quench her envy, she tries to seduce everything or everyone, no matter if it's a dog!!

Today, it's Kali who makes this experience!!

Chamade, Kali

For lack of climbing on the nirvana                                                        ...let us climb on trees!!!

26/05/2008 :

A little mouse (not wild of the whole!) ventured on our terrace . What did not escape to the lynx's eye of Chamade!!
For the history's footnotes, we caught the mouse and put her on the garden's other side (No, no!! Not on the neighbour's one ;-)
