Look what washed up on my beach!

Yesterday morning, Mom and I went for a nice long walk on the beach, as it was sunny and clear (after a rainy Saturday!). We were astonished when we spied this along the water's edge...

It was the message that my pals Clive and NSLM sent me from the coast of Ireland last week! Of course, it came with a cool, bracing breeze directly off the North Sea! Thanks fellas!!!

As part of Mica Appreciation Month, here is a photo we've posted before, of when Mom first got Mica twenty years ago. He was just 6 weeks old in this photo. Doesn't he look like one of Tama-Chan's adorable kittens? He considers them to be his niece and nephews!

He was also very touched by your kind words and wishes. And he was delighted to be awarded second place in the first Cat-Dog competition at Mango Minster. He immediately sent judge Khyra a bouquet of pussywillows with a note that he considers her to be the "Khat's Meow!"

Well done to Mica in the cat-dog contest! So cute as a kitten, yes indeed.
And how interesting that a message could have reached you all the way from Ireland. Via the North Sea......
I could have intercepted it in Aberdeen - check the atlas old boy!
Cheers, H.

Congratulations to Mica - he is a star!
We loved his little kitten pic - so many years ago - what a great life he has had Petey!
We loved your message from Clive and the NSLM - we could see the cold wind blowing and thought how lovely it was that they stood there in the freezing cold, believe us it is freezing, and wrote a message to you.
You must be pretty special.
love you lots

We were so thrilled that Uncle Mica won second place in the MM "Cat dog" competition (can you believe that first place went to an actual D.O.G.?).

Purrs,
Tama-Chan ad the kits, Sei-Chan and Yuu-Chan
