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

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!

Spying Goro



Peeking...


Monitoring...


Blending in...


Hiding...


Well, kind of.
Goro is not the best spy, is he? :-)


By the way, we have some
surveillance cameras set at home.

No, no. Just for security purposes.

The other day, camera caught
Goro in action.


I gotta say, he is nearly as
athletic as James Bond!


But definitely more handsome :-)

Chick-Chip Cookie




I usually make steamed chicken for
Goro & Niko's regular snack.


But I thought I'd try something new.


Using coconut flour, I decided to
bake grain-free cookies.


As usual, Goro helped me in the kitchen.


He inspected everything :-)


Mix ingredients and make balls.
Now let's bake!


And here they are after 30 minutes:

Chick-Chip cookie 
& Fresh Baked Fresh Fish cookie


Enjoy, Goro!

(I broke cookie into small pieces so it's easier to eat)


Um, try tasting. It's yum yum.


Goro just picked meat and mostly
ignored the dough part.

Niko, on the other hand, seemed to like it.


Goro hanging around Niko and his snack.

Somehow, he is convinced
that Niko's food tastes better.


Sure enough, as I was cleaning the table
after Niko left...

Goro :-)

Overall, I think it was "so-so snack"
for Goro & Niko.

Though, I sure had fun baking for them :-)
