The good doctors of the hospital saved Momo’s life after his terrible accident ; the path is going to be long, but he recovers little by little. There is a lot of snow, and Pixie discovers this white, wet, and cold powder, for the first time : she does not really like it !

After trois months at the hospital, Momo is transferred to the rehabilitation clinic and can come home during the weekends. Zorro celebrates his second Gotcha Day.

Pixie celebrates her 1st birthday.

After one and a half month at the clinic, Momo can definitively come back home in the middle of April : it’s a pawty ! Our blog is three years old.

Pouring rains beat down on French-speaking Switzerland. There are big damages in several places and near us, but fortunately we are spared. Thanks to MailChimp, we finally find out how to send our newsletter in the language of your choice. Momo progresses, and he can resume a professional activity one to two hours a day. It is also Pixie’s first Gotcha Day. Time flies !

Summer comes and it’s hot. Very hot.

Momo undergoes a nth operation to remove the plates which he has in wrists, and everything goes well. There is a heatwave, and all the ways are good to refresh us, even playing in the water.

Zorro celebrates his 3rd birthday.

The best part of the blogging is when you can meet offline people you got acquainted online : Claire spends a fantastic day with Chloe, who arrives quite straight ahead from the USA.

Claire moves in a new college, and she is very put under stress, because she also takes care of all which is IT. There is some delay in the works there, she thus dedicates her holidays to tidy up, to connect cables, to transport computers, and neglects our blog. She resumes her class completely exhausted after these two weeks, and everything is not ready by far in the IT domain.

And it starts all over again : undoubtedly, we are still pursued by bad luck ! While he’s still recovering from his car accident, Momo has an occupational accident. Result : triple fracture in the foot (the one that had not been injured in the previous accident of course).

We are submerged by traditional greeting cards or by e-mail : Claire and Momo are a little bit jealous, because we have twenty times more cards than them !

    A year to remember (or not?) … may the one ahead bring all you need, most that you want! Joy to you and your family, human and furry! We are so happy to know you, to be a small part of the “Swiss” life through your blog and your stories and photos … hugs, purrs to all.

    Wow, you two have had a busy year.

    And you are more efficient than us. Thank you for our Christmas Card – we didn’t send any this year.

    Fanta, Percy, the humans and I all hope your next year is exciting and fun, but that you don’t get Momo broken again.

    Happy New Year Claire, Momo, Zoro and Pixie!

    Momo, if you were a cat, you would have used up a few of your nine lives in the last year alone! Which means all your remaining lives will be filled with good health, good luck, good love, good joy, and a general abundance of good things all around !

    May 2016 be your best year yet Claire and Momo!

    your pals,
    the critters in the cottage and their Mama Sophie xo

    You have had quite the year! I’m so glad that Momo is doing well despite his accident. That was really scary! I remember reading about it on Facebook. I hope that 2016 brings even bigger and better things for all of you! 🙂

    I was just wondering as the French post seems to be something else. Don’t worry if you didn’t have the time to blog in English, I just wanted to let you know in case this is a technical problem. <3
