It's getting late.
Let's go to bed, Goro.

In the night,
Goro usually stays wherever his Dad is.

Niko and I usually go to bed together.
He curls up next to me and goes to sleep.

One night, I had a nightmare.
It was a scary ghost in my dream.

Obviously I was screaming very loud.
I woke up everyone in the house.

I woke up, too. Glad my nightmare was over.

Interesting thing happened then.

Goro stayed with me for the rest of the night.

And another couple of nights - which made
two family members unhappy.

(1) Niko

(2) His Dad

Eventually Goro went back to
his usual spot - Dad's side - in the night.

But I think Goro was trying to protect me. He
decided to go off duty as he made sure I was okay.


Now Goro is napping. 
It's my turn to protect him in case he has a nightmare.

I think he is having a good dream :-)

Niko under the Influence

Hi, Niko.

This is "Matatabi Mist" from Japan.
I got it for you and Goro.

Let me spray this in the air...

"Matatabi" can be referred to as Japanese catnip.

So it can make Niko very happy...

...and turn shy Niko into a bold and strong tiger.

...Or not.

Matatabi makes Goro hyper, too.
(He does not need it to get hyper, though.)

It's a good stuff, but like catnip,
be careful not to take too much!

Working Hard

Hello, this is Niko.
Long time no see.

Mom has been very busy at work so she couldn't get online
to blog. She is working hard, coming home late every day.

Mom says to Goro and me,

"I work hard, earn money, and make deposit so that
I can get lots of food and toys for you.

Mom says so with smile, but she looks exhausted.

So I asked my brother Goro
if there is anything we can do to help her.

Goro says "being cute" is our job.

Doing our job is supposed to help Mom.
And Goro is dedicated to his job.

He works hard,

earns lots of reward,

and makes a huge deposit.

Us working hard seems helping Mom.
She looks happy.

"But then, why does she still get so exhausted?"
I asked Goro.

I wonder if there is anything we can do to help her.

Can I?

Mom: It's been quite busy for the last couple of weeks.
I'm sorry I haven't visited you. I miss you all. I think
things are getting back to normal now. Goro and Niko are
source of my energy and always bring peace to my mind.
