Kit


Last Wednesday, I met a kitten.
He was found at my work and had nowhere to go. My husband and I decided to take him in, but only temporarily. We will find him home later. We called him Kit, which was short for kitten.

Kit looked very weak. Vet said he was severely dehydrated besides having other health conditions. After receiving a fluid therapy, he perked up a little. I heard his sweet purring. Let's get better, sweetheart. But next day, something looked wrong with him. We rushed to the vet. They tried to save Kit, but his body was giving up. I could only cry and stroke his body. He was gone.

Kit was only about eight weeks old. Why couldn't I save him? I hope my tears help his innocent soul. My husband suggested that we adopted Kit, so he didn't die homeless. I agreed, Kit is our family. Brother of Goro & Niko.

Thank you for reading this story, and knowing that he was here. No life is meaningless. With his tiny body, Kit fought for life bravely. Although the time we spent together was way too short, we will remember him forever. 
This week we received Kit's ashes. He is home.

Pretty Face




Looking down, and I saw...

Goblin attacking the leg!



No, that's Goro.

He likes wrestling with his Dad :-)


He is too pretty to be a goblin.


Yes...no matter what :-)


Still, Goro wants to show you his
"classic pretty face" shot.


Niko says hi, too.


Have a happy new week, everyone!

Then & Now



Goro is a big boy now, but he was a
teeny-tiny kitten when he came here in 2009.

Baby Goro

Grown-up Goro

Child Goro with play buddy

Wild Goro with prey buddy

Overlooking from the tree

Overflowing from the tree

Prince Goro napping with fishie

King Goro napping with fish...

Of course, they are different fishes.
Goro hasn't grown THAT big :-)


Goro's first winter

Then came spring

Big difference?
Goro got a brother in 2010!

Baby Niko

Niko has grown into a fluffy cat :-)

Goro & Niko may be grown-ups now,
but they are always my babies.

And love for them will never stop growing!

Summer Deck Time



It's hot, hot, hot.
Sizzling summer is here!

Still, Niko enjoys sunbathing
out on the deck.


Thankfully, we've been having some rain, too.
Goro loves to play with rain water.

(Awning has grommets for rain to escape)


I'm getting mosquito bites constantly.
"Mosquito magnet" is my middle name.


Mosquitoes are feasting on me.
You are safe, Goro & Niko.


Of course, we can't be too careful. Gotta
protect kids from mosquito-borne disease.


Have a safe & fun summer, everyone!

Goro

Niko

Two fur balls :-)

Sunday with Friend



Last Sunday, I got to meet a long-time
blogging friend in person:


Dreamy image from Mariette's blog

I admire her various talent, knowledge, beautiful
home, healthy life style, kindness, generosity &
so many other things. Her husband Pieter is a truly
remarkable person as well. It was such an honor
for us (Goro & Niko's Dad & me) to meet them!

Lovely gift from them


When we got home,
Goro was all over the gift.


Especially the bag which had wine in it.


Goro~~~!

Niko got interested in the bag, too.



Goro & Niko had fun with the bag.
Mom & Dad enjoyed sweet treats :-)


Mariette & Pieter. Thank you for the thoughtful
gift and lovely time we spent together!
