The Load of the Rings

I lost my wedding ring.

It vanished, like a puff of smoke.
Searched everywhere - home, office, car.
But no luck.

Well, everywhere except...

Goro... Do you have it?

You did try to snatch the ring before.

Because of Goro's curious nature,
I keep my ring in a ring box when at home.

But if...

The idea of Goro having ring, which
could hurt him, freaked me out.

We took him to the Vet for x-ray.

We knew Niko wouldn't take the ring.

Result - Goro didn't have the ring!

Phew! It certainly
took a huge load off my mind...

Now I probably need to get a new ring.

Sigh... I don't like spending $$$ on a piece
of jewelry. I'd rather buy stuff for kitties.

No way!

Then I found this cute ring online.
$24.99 + shipping!

It's a purrfect ring for me :-)

P.S. My wedding ring is still missing. I guess
it slipped off from finger while washing
hands (which happened before) somewhere.
Husband kindly suggested to get a new one,
but I'm quite happy with this cat ring :-)

Treat & Treat

Hello, everyone!
I hope you had a fun Halloween!

We didn't do anything special.
Just enjoyed a quiet day...

Well, we had one visitor :-)

We don't do costume, but I have
a bad habit of putting toys (light & soft)
on kids (only if they let me.)


This photo was taken in July this year.

Recently, I found this photo from 2010.
I do need to grow up...

We didn't do trick-or-treat, either.
But enjoyed treat-and-treat :-)

It was a nice quiet Halloween.

And look!! We were one of the lucky winners

Super cute Halloween cards starring famous
Maxwell & Faraday of A Tonk's Tail... err, Tale!

Thank you, Connie & Lisa, we LOVE the cards!

Niko's 6th Birthday

Niko loves chin scritches.

Loves even more with a brush.

And head brushing.

That usually leads to happy head-butting
with two paws in the air.

Then he hops on the bed.

With overflowing happiness,
he starts making biscuits.

This is how brushing session goes with Niko.
He is such a sweet & happy boy :-)

I collected loose furs from brushes.
Made little hearts with them♥

* Cotton is used for Goro's "bib"

...which were destroyed by Goro.

Wh-wh-wh-why? Goro?

Anyway, today, October 25 is
Niko's 6th birthday.

Happy birthday to our sweet darling!

Happy Autumn

Autumn is upon us!

Goro enjoys cool breeze
out on the deck.

Niko loves whiff from open window.

I made autumn-colored snack for Goro & Niko.

Fish balls made with fresh tuna & salmon♥

As usual, Goro demanded,
volunteered to do the taste test.

Baked fresh fish balls - served on
kids' maple leaf plates :-)

Happy autumn!

Something Green

I grow catnip for Goro & Niko.

They are not so interested, but still
enjoy occasional sniffing.

It grew.

And grew...

And grew some more.

It's nice to have something green at home :-)

Speaking of green...

Goro spotted a green lizard!

Goro, dinner is ready.

Come on, Goro. Eat, eat.

Goro. Eyes on the food, please.

Here is something else green: Niko's eyes

Photos may not show well, but he's
got beautiful green in his eyes :-)

Goro's 6th Anniversary

Goro's ice cream cone toys

He loves to carry them around.

So the toys travel throughout the house.

On stairs

Under the bed

Niko's favorite napping spot...

But they always, always come back to
one place: under the table in a living room
- and I know why.

Because that's the table his Dad
spends his time at a lot.

Goro is such a Daddy's boy :-)

Lately, his line of gift items expanded.

And the best gift of all...

On September 22, we celebrated
Goro's 6th Gotcha Day.

He has brought so much
laughter and happiness into our life. 
Goro is truly a precious gift for us!
