Goro's 2nd Birthday

Today we celebrate Goro's 2nd birthday.

Goro is like a big child.
He does not like being left alone. 

Goro plays hard.
In a play-fight, he gets very excited.

...Sometimes too excited.

But I say these with love
because I love him just the way he is, and...

No matter how old they are,
my kids are always my babies :-)

Happy birthday, Goro!

Tale of Tail

I don't know if it is said worldwide, but in Japan, 
I hear that kitties born with hooked tail bring happiness.

Hooked tail... Or kinked? Crooked? Curled? I don't
know the proper word, but it is a tail which is not straight.

You can? Niko?

Oh, it is very neatly folded. Well done, Niko.

You can? Goro? reminds me of a candy swirl. Mmm!

You boys bring me happiness every day :-)


Long time ago, when I was still living in Japan,
I had a girl who had a hooked tail.

She was born prematurely and I thought she 
would not make it. But she grew big and beautiful.

She sure brought me a lot of happiness.

Unconditional Love

I'm sure everyone with cat child(ren)
has the same kind of experience. 

Niko, mommy got a bed for you.
Do you want to use it?

Sigh . . .

Niko, I have to throw that away.


Goro, mommy got a toy for you.
Do you want to play with it?

Sigh . . .

Goro, I have to throw this away.


We give and give and give, even though what 
we get in return most of the time is a cold reaction.

So why can't we stop giving? 

Well... It's because of love, and 
because we get to rub that...

Goro ~, thank you for the reward :-)

Ouch, ouch.

Grooming Time

Goro is grooming Niko.


When he does, Goro tends to start biting Niko.
So Niko usually runs away or they end up fighting.


Maybe I can take fun wrestling photos
for my blog - hee hee.

Okay, I have my camera set for continuous 
shooting mode. You can start fighting.

Come on, kids.

Patty cake, patty cake, baker's man. 

♪ Bake me a cake as fast as you can. 

♪ Roll it up, roll it . . .  up . . . . .

O...Oh! I'm sorry, Goro.


Is Goro a better groomer now?
Or is Niko being patient?

I didn't expect to take cute snuggling photos.
But it's always nice to see them being sweet :-)

Goro's Wish

It was Sunday morning when Goro came to see me.

Of course, Goro!

Niko, we will go shopping.
Do you want to join us?

We will, Niko.


Goro, his Dad, and I went to the store.

Goro, have you found what you need?

Later Goro found what he wanted.
We put it in a shopping cart and checked out.


So what Goro got at the store is...

We have a bird feeder hanging off the deck.
It has been empty for a while.
Now it is filled, birds will come to have a meal.

I know Goro wants to eat those birds.

Sorry, Goro...
I don't think your wish will come true.

But I will cook chicken for you and Niko :-)
