“There was hoarfrost for a long time, outside. Then it was warmer. And today hoarfrost again. Colder in the near future, according to the forecast. Snow, do you think?

Christmas is gone. Hogmanay is near.. My Masters, and I, Frimousse, and my friend RouXy, we wish that the year to come will be better than the one that finishes. For all of you, as for us.”

That was his last message for the year 2016.

“Christmas and New Year are behind. Children are back to school this morning. Of course, there is still the epiphany cake to eat but if Christmas decorations are still in place, they’re just waiting to be put away. The Christmas tree does not lose many needles yet, RouXy’s Master cut it when the Moon was right. Still no snow here.
My friend RouXy gives us a lot of concern. My Master does all that he can to feed him and prevent him from vomiting but he does not gain weight. And he seems weaker and weaker. When he goes upstairs, what he would do in one breath, he stops one or two times, three times yesterday … My Master is going to take him to my doctor. But everybody is afraid of what she will say. He is so happy to live, my friend! Lying by my side on the large bed upstairs at the beginning of the evening or around the neck of my Master sitting in the armchair during the day, he purrs and purrs and purrs…

Happy New Year to all the visitors of Frimousse Blog.”

That was his first message for 2017.

This Monday morning, it is snowing. A gentle and fine snow, which the wind is playing with. The road is white but it isn’t slippery. Frimousse would have loved running in the snow and in the wind, and then coming to keep me company, on his armchair, with his head raised. RouXy would be spread on the low table in front of the stove…

This is the last post on Frimousse Blog for the year 2017.Merry Christmas to all of you! Next year will just be another year…

 

 

Winter

It is cold this Tuesday morning ( – 3.5°C 25°F) on the window sill at the moment (9:30 am). As the snow is not thick and it has slightly melted, and the lane is a real ice rink. I feed “the birds of the air”. Seeds on the windowsill and the “fat balls” suspended under the lime tree. In memory of Frimousse, to whom sparrows gave numerous moments of happiness. They are cold and Frimousse would say: “They would be much more comfortable inside my stomach”
Frimousse’s Mistress has started putting Christmas decorations. As far as the Chrismas tree is concerned, RouXy’s Master says we have to wait until December 20th to cut it this year – a master in the science of trees, he cuts according to the moon. Frimousse’s Mistress is getting ingredients ready to bake Christmas biscuits. She cannot rely on RouXy to help her this year …
She went skiing on Sunday. She hopes the snow won’t melt. If there is no snow, she can go running! I bought her shoes of another make, which seem to be better for her ankles – you can see that I run by proxy … This morning her ankle is a bit sore. Skiing doesn’t seem to be a good thing, in spite of what her doctor says…
