Visiting Friends.

When our Beans left us, the first thing they did was to introduce themselves to GJ. He looks very pleased to see them, or maybe it was the goody bag he was more interested in.

The mums and dads decided to go to Haworth where the Bronte sisters lived. This is our mum and dad in the churchyard where they were buried.

And this is GJ's mum and dad.

This is just one of the many beautiful stained glass windows in the church.

Haworth is a very old village, and a kind passer by took photos of them all together. All the flags were out for the Royal Wedding.

They went into one of the shops that sold old style things from years gone by and met Billie the cat. He didn't want to wake up to talk to them but still enjoyed some ear scritches from our mum.

When they got back to GJ's house, mum asked him if he would pose for a photo for her and of course he agreed to.

He told her he couldn't remember which was his best side so told our mum to take a photo from the other side too.

Then he asked for a full face shot and allowed his mum to have her photo taken with him too.

The next day they all went into York and saw lots of big fevvers and baby fevvers in the park. That is the bit we found most interesting. We hoped they would have brought one of the big fevvers home for us to make up for leaving us.

Then they went into York museum which was made up to look like an old street with the old houses in it.

They said it was very interesting.

The table was all set up for dinner but we don't know if they stopped for it.

The mums put the dads in the old jail but they looked quite happy to be locked up.
They all said they had a lovely time together.

As soon as they got home, I made sure I got the suitcase for my bed. If you look just behind me you will see a little ginger kitty. That is Tabatha and GJ and his mum and dad sent her to keep watch over our mum. She will help us to nurse her better.
Hmphhh! I just counted up and there are six kitty photos altogether and only one is of me. At least that is one more than Flynn has got.

GJ is a very handsome cat!! His eyes are enchanting! We like that sleepy tuxie shop cat too!
Mmmmmm the fevvers look quite tasty!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

What an excellent trip your folks had! How cool is that?!

Simba said...

It is so nice that your Mum and Dad had a visit with GJ's Mum and Dad. Somehow it feels a little like every human in the cat blogosphere was there in spirit with them, and wishing your Mum a very successful surgery. Those photos sure show some fun times.

Kari said...

How very kind of the GJ family to send little Tabitha to take care of your mum when she is in the hospital. We're sure she will brighten your mum 's days and keep her good company until she can come home to her precious boys. Looks like all of the beans had a fantastic time. It's always delightful to find a sweet kitty in their travels.
Your mum continues to be in our hearts and prayers. You will keep us updated ,please? It need not be too personal, we just want to know she is ok. All of our love.

Katnip Lounge said...

We are so pleased that your beans had such a good time! GJ is quite the host, and so photogenic, too.
We also want your Mum to know she's in our prayers for an easy surgery and a positive outcome.
Purrs!

caspersmom said...

It looks like your Mum and Dad sure had fun with GJ's Mum and Dad. They saw a lot of interesting places. We have the big fev-vers here but no little ones yet. The big fev-vers are always arguing and making a big racket. Maybe the little fev-vers are afraid of coming out because of all the noise. We are still purring and praying for your Mum. God will watch over her.

Continued purrs and Light to your mum...And as Kari posted, a lot of us would appreciate an update or two, with no need to be personal, just so we know your mum is okay! Even just an email to KC or a comment on main CB page.

What a nice trip your beans had! Our mom has been to York and she loved it!

GJ was a nice host to them! But too bad your beans didn't bring you one of those fevvers!

We continue to purr for your mum and hope all goes well for her.

We are delighted your mum and dad enjoyed their visit to see GJ and his staff. Fancy them not bring a big fevver back for you boys to chase over the fields. We are purring hard for your mum and your dad too.
