Oh, come on cats ! They are good kids. And Sonic, stop ripping up my pants !

Some of you, dear commenters, have asked how Liam is. Liam is Toni & Pedro’s baby. The stork bought him to my neighbour’s house in our Spanish village late last December.

And then, out of the blue, Marsha …..

Marsha

…..sent a lovely soft toy which happens to be Manny’s big brother…….

Manny

…… all the way from California, USA, to Liam in the mountains of Andalucia, Spain.

Lammy was cooped up in the parcel for 24 days with no air holes. Poor bear !

Lammy is Liam’s first and only soft toy.

Do you get jealous ?

My final session of The Drip is tomorrow. Then we’ll see what happens over the next six months. Maybe I can publish a semi-reasonable post during that time πŸ˜€

  1. Liam, Lammy and the rest of you are gorgeous. Although Toni is the most gorgeous.
    Don’t worry about the ripped-up pants! They can be stuffed into another soft toy, a cuddly-wuddly puddy cat. I’m sure this is what Sonic has had in mind all along.
    Best to you tomorrow!
    Much love

  3. Awwww such adorable pictures, MFR! Baby Liam is growing so big! He’s almost as big as Lammy. πŸ™‚ Manny sends his love, too. He was so jealous when he saw that Lammy was getting into the box to go bye bye. He would have crawled in there, too, but there wasn’t enough room for him. He didn’t know it would take so long to get to Spain, though. When he reads this, he is going to be a happy bear to be staying home. πŸ™‚ Good luck dripping tomorrow – or today by the time you get this. Drip well. πŸ™‚

    Manny’s brother and counterpart in crime, Lammy, has gone to live in Spain with baby Liam. I had to use Kalev’s dog leash on Manny to keep him at home when he saw Lammy getting into his travel box.

  8. Those are really good photos of you all, Ralph. Sonic and Samantha are very photogenic, too – despite Sonic’s desperate need to rip your underwear to shreds. Liam has become a bonny, smiley little boy in so few months. Babies change so quickly at that age. He’ll probably give Sonic and Samantha a bit of a rough time once he starts toddling, mind. so they’ll be wanting to hide in your bed more often.
    Enjoy what’s left of the Easter break, Ralph, and I hope your last session of the drip goes well tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  10. Sending you healing vibes and a good session. I didn’t know cats, like dogs, like to eat their human’s underwear. I’m familiar with the cats hiding in the bed scenario. The cleaning lady arrived at our doorstep the other day and all four cats went running single file down to the bedroom and under the covers. I realized that in the event of anyone coming into my house unwelcome there will be no protection from them whatsoever. However, the cats are better than an alarm system for sure- warning of trouble..or even just the delivery guy bringing a package.

      Thank you so much for the Tail of your 4 Cats Diahann. I bet your bed is wrecked after having 4 cats in there. Mine always is with just 2 cats. They love labels and drag the whole sheet or cover off by the label in the corner. I do make my bed everyday and they unmake it regularly. Oh boy !
