Award & Niko's Laundry

We feel so honored and happy that our
very special friends gave us awards!

Thank you, Layla from Cat Wisdom 101 for Illuminating
Blogger Award. We learn a lot from you - about cats, life, and
many important things. We hope you win the Petties Award!

Thank you, Spitty from Spitty Speaks for Kreativ Blogger
Award. We've been big fan of you for a very long time. You are 
handsome, funny, and have such a gorgeous fluffy tail :-)

Thank you so much for thinking about us!!


Goro loves boxes.

Niko loves boxes as well, but I think he is
more into clothing - not fashion but pile of laundry.

While back, his Dad used
guest bedroom bed to fold laundry.

Then the guest bed became Niko's
favorite place to hang out.

Niko looked happy, which made me happy, too :-)

So we left laundry on the guest bed for him.

Until we were going to have a guest.
Laundry had to go before the guest's arrival.

Niko looked sad, which made me sad, too :-(

So I opened my underwear drawer for him.

I don't mind wearing 
furry underpants as long as Niko is happy :-)

*Mosaic used on my underwear to keep G-rating!

"Love is when the other person's
 happiness is more important than your own."

Now we'd like to pass on the awards, but many friends already
have them or have become award-free. So we picked two blogs
NOT to pass award but say thank you for being wonderful friends.

Fuzzy Tales - Naughty boy Nicki reminds me of Goro and sweet
Derry reminds me of Niko all the time. We love seeing them tussle.
And we love their mom! She is a very caring, wonderful friend.

Orchid's Daily Voice - Our lovely friend from Japan. Even though
I'm Japanese as well, I always learn new things about my home
country from her. We always love reading her sweet comments.

Have a happy week, everyone!


  1. "I don't mind wearing
    furry underpants as long as Niko is happy" Oh goodness, you always crack me up! Thanks for the smile.

  2. LOL @ Daisy!

    We bet Niko made some airy flaky biskits with your unmentionables!

  3. Even our mom wouldn't open her underwear drawer for us. Mind you, hers ARE g-rated all on their own. LOL.

    Congratulations on both awards and thank YOU for thinking of us! We *are* award-free now, but that's because our human's too lazy to do the "rules" that come with most of them. Please know we DO appreciate it very much! :-)

  4. Concatulations on the awards! And I totally agree with you about the laundry.

  5. Congrats, very well deserved award

  6. Congrats on the very nice awards! I love reading about you.and the underwear drawer sounds like fun!

  7. Dearest Tamago,

    Congrats with these awards and you earned it for posting such fun stories with great photos from your two boys!
    Oh, don't they all love beds and laundry... We just bought in Atlanta at TJ Maxx two cozy microfiber blankets for putting over the clean guest beds. They can sleep on those and it's easy to launder. They love them and make happily biscuits too.
    Love to you,

  8. I like to sleep and make biscuits in my dad's underwear drawer. I guess he doesn't mind fuzzy underpants either.

    Congrats on your awards!


  9. Congratulations on your awards, they are well deserved!!! We love visiting you and your beautiful boys :-) I would let the cats lie in my drawers too...anything to make them happy!!!

  10. That furry underwear sentence had Mommy laughing and snorting. Thank you for the very very good laugh this rainy day!
    Oh, and congratulations on your awards. You guys certainly deserve them!

  11. Yup the underwear got a huge laugh here too. But our Mom would do the same thing. We always get on any clothing that she leaves around including the underwear. Also conga rats on the awards. Good stuff. Take care.

  12. Dearest Tamago-san,
    Congratulations on your wonderful two awards☆☆☆ They both are such wonderful awards and you well deserve these because we love your adorable boys story(♥^_^♥)~*
    Oh, amazing to see how Goro and Niko facilitated by these laundries and underwear♡♡♡ They must love close to you with them! They are so sweet and I smiled a lot tonight.
    Wow, thank you very much for your heartfelt words for me; I truly appreciate your kind words♪♪♪ You ARE my precious Japanese blog friend!
    For the laast, I loved your quote as well(^_^)v
    Night Night from Japan; Sending you lots of love and hugs, xoxo Miyako*

  13. I think having a little cat hair on all your outfits is quite a fashion statement really. That way, we can think of our kitties all day when we are at work and keep finding stray cat fur here and there. LOL!

    Love the G-rating underwear drawer! Hahahah!
    xo Catherine

  26. Thank you for the kind and thoughtful words on the passing of my beloved Alex. I appreciate you. Sister Gracie from Brian's Home

  27. Hi Boys! Hope things are good in laundry-world ;-)

  28. Thank you so much for leaving words of comfort for me on the passing of my beloved cat, Alex. Marc and I are heartbroken. We know we did the right thing, and every day we realize how much Alex was “preparing us” during the last few weeks, but it doesn’t make it any easier. We can’t stop the tears…. But having wonderful friends, like you, and the support of the CB is making it better….

  29. Congratulations on your awards!! That's awesome :)

    Carmine likes to lay in clothes, too. I used to dump my laundry on the couch before I folded it and he would just plop right down in the middle of the pile! ;)

    It's nice that you let Niko lay in your drawer. The things we cat lovers will do for our babies! :) They're so worth it <3

  30. Boys, my mommy loves you much and we hope that you both got to lay where and when you wanted to with no one bothering you. You are the bosses of the household as I am here in my house.


  31. I always try to deposit a little fur on Mommie's outfits. I think of it as a little for her to "take" a little of me with her where ever she goes!
