Bonjour - Ca va?

We have been visiting friends in S.W France.
Darcy and Bingley stayed at home and we missed them, especially when we met other cats.
We missed visiting you all too.
'Bernadou' and some of it's occupants ...

Mr Haven walking out with Misty and Casi
She has a brother called 'Ino' their names derive from the supermarket 'Cas-ino' in France. They were dumped in the car park when they were kittens, but found by our friends and given their forever home at Bernadou.


cuddles with Casi

This is a close up of Casi's tail - it is not short from injury, she is believed to have been born like it and still wiggles it effectively!

The weather was beautiful and we had a most happy time.


  1. It looks lovely! ::Sigh::

    Visiting southwest France sounds so romantic and even a bit exotic to our mom, but of course it's so easy to go from one European country to another, in terms of distance. Her uncle now lives in Bergamo, Italy, with his wife, and it's nothing to go to cities like Vienna for the day or weekend, etc. Blows our mom's mind away! LOL.

  12. How lovely that you could meet some other cute kitty cats when you were away from your two!

    Sounds like a fun time!

  13. What a lovely place. I love France and always enjoy visiting.


  14. We always get to know other cats on holiday as we miss our own. Glad you had a great time - it looks a lovely place:)

  15. Wow it sounds like it was a nice trip! WE haven't been able to visit lately so we missed seeing you all - we hope everyone is doing well!!

  16. Further to your inquiry about if that little birdy dessert plate is available online...... I FOUND it...

    It's 222 Fifth "early bird" Fine China.


    I'm so excited, because I wanted to get more of these whimsical pieces, and HomeSense (where I bought them) didn't carry anymore.

    So hope that helps!
