Award & Hanten

Our lovely, sweet friend, Kassey visited
us and kindly left a message that her Mom
wanted to give us this shiny award! 

You brightened our day!! Thank you so much for
thinking about us. Kassey and Mom, you are wonderful!


Though I got sunshine and it's been sunny outside, 
mornings and evenings are getting quite chilly. 
So I pulled out this winter coat from the closet. 

This is Japanese traditional clothing called Hanten.
It's light, warm, and comfortable. I love wearing it at home.

 Goro likes to wear it, too.

How do you like Hanten, Goro? 

I like sharing clothes with my kids.

I have not seen Niko wearing Hanten, though.

There was one time when he came to knead it...

Maybe this is why Niko does not wear Hanten.


Now I'd like to pass on the Sunshine Award to
I enjoy reading about her fur babies and learning about
Malay culture. They sure give us sunshine!!


  1. Congrats on such a nice award and such a great outfit too!

  2. Love the Hunten Tamago san, as you said it is nice in warm, Natukashi desu:-)
    Goro san like to wear Hunten that's good idea for the winter's cats fashion show:-)
    A good hear that you are expanding more fur blogger friends.

  3. Concats on your award! We think our Mommy needs a hanten too...the sleeves look delightful!

  4. That Hanten is a pawsome cat toy! Tell your human to leave it for you two.

  5. MOL.. Are you still like Hanten ? I think Niko like it too but in difference way from you..tee..heh
    Have a great day you two

  6. Congratulations on your award, you always bring sunshine when we come and visit you :-) Goro is too adorable in the sleeve!

  10. That Hanten is kirei desu! purr...meow!

  11. Tamago, if you have never received the Stylish and Inspirational Awards before, please grab it from me!

  12. You look great in a hanten, Goro-Chan! #1 used to enjoy wearing hers when she lived in Tokyo. Maybe she needs to bring it back out!

  13. Concats on the award! The Goro burrito is adorable. :-)

    We're glad your mom does her own research--and that her friend's cat was fine with only a diet change, not dangerous and expensive surgery! It can be very hard to sort out what's what, but in the end our humans just have to do the best they can, with the information they have at the time.

  14. Congratulations on your award! I think Goro makes a very nice yummy burrito!

  15. Oh my that Hantan sure looks cozy. Bet it is nice and warm. Congrats to you on winning that lovely award. You sure do deserve that a lot. We love your blog. Take care.

  16. To you it may be clothing - but to Goro - CAT TUNNEL!! Sookie likes to do this with my clothes too - especially when they are freshly washed, ironed and defurred!!
    Congrats on your award :)

  17. I'll bet that Goro burrito is served with extra cheese!

  18. Goro, LOOKIN' GOOD in the Hanten buddy! Niko, you made us laugh when you said "Is it the Dough Boy?" Congrats on your well-deserved award, you always bring us sunshine too. Have a great week!

  19. Hi, this is Orchid. I have a trouble commenting in Google acount now.

    Congratulations on your awrd, tamago-san♬♬♬
    I'll need hanten soon, loved to see cute Goro and niko♡♡♡
    Love and lots of Hugs to you, Orchid*

    PS> Thank you for your sweet comment for me. Bro's service went smoothly yesterday and feeling relieved, load off my mind now. Miyako.

  20. I'd never heard of a hanten, even though I lived in Japan for two years! I feel so ignorant!

  21. Concatulations on your award! You always bring us sunshine; that's why we love visiting you so. :)

    The Goro burrito made us MOL.

  22. Is that Goro burrito best with hot or mild sauce?

    The Human thinks that Hanten looks nice and comfy. Yeah, she should buy one for me, MOL!

  23. Two sleeves, two kitties, one sleeve for each of you! You just have to decide who gets left and right, hehehe!

    A nice way to stay warm, burrito-style!


  24. It looks like the kitties are having a great time with that jacket!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  25. Oh I LOVE the Goro Burrito and I'll take one please!

    I also love the look of Goro's Hunten. I think there is room for all three of you.

    Love this blog and congratulations on the award. xoxoxox

  26. Dearest Tamago,

    Congrats with your award and special Hanten. Goro seemed to love it. Goro burrito is cute! You always find something for making it into an enjoyable post.
