In Plume’s house

The elder of Plume’s little Masters, who is quite a man, now, has a young white kitty, Minidril. He lives with his fiancée and Minidril in a flat in Lyons. Mnidril comes to Plume’s house, here, about once a month. It was decided that Minidril should stay inside so that she doesn’t lose her habits of indoors cat. But… on the other side of the large patio doors…  she can see lizards and birds… So Minidril scratches the windows. And windows and door must remain closed, in the middle of August!

Plume’s Master, the father of Minidril’s Master, who was strongly against having cats,  and who secretly would like Minidril to stay here, decided yesterday to adapt Plume’s PetSafe system so that Minidril would be able to go out between the house and the lane. No problem to fit the collar. Minidril heard beeps and then a tickling round her neck but she went on. Was Minidril insensitive as RouXy was? A new battery was fitted, and Minidril flew back! She soon detected the boundaries, and now she goes out, in, out again, watching Nature from her arm-chair, ready to joump out to catch a lizard. What will her Master say when he comes later today? He commanded not to let Minidril go out in the garden…

Poor Minidril, when she goes back to her Lyons flat on Monday… Unless Plume’s Master…



The sun is shining this morning though


15 years nearly between the two photos.
We moved to this place on 13th July, 15 years ago
There was a 2-month-old ginger kitten the neighbours had just been given.
He was so kind his elder Master wanted to name him ‘Jesus”! At the end of the day his name was  ‘RouXy’.
We have lived here with Frimousse,  RouXy  and his Masters since then.
Very few photos of young RouXy  – no digital camera at the time. The photo at the bottom is the first we have – end of July or early August 2001.
RouXy’s elder Master would do a lot of gardening and take care of his hens. RouXy’s Masters would give us salads, eggs, tomatoes etc and very valuable help for growing vegetables in our own garden.
We used to have a drink together quite often as well as occasional fondues or réveillons.
The photo above is the last one we have of RouXy’s elder Master alive – a week yesterday.
He ďied yesterday early in the afternoon. He was such a nice man….

Today the sun is shining though.
