Lesson One


Since holiday is over...

Goro, Niko. Let me give you a language lesson.


Goro is named after Japanese word "goro goro."

"Goro goro" has several meanings. Here are some;

#1 Loafing around, being lazy

#2 Rumbling sound of upset stomach

#3 Kitties' purring sound

Now, which meaning do you think Goro's name has?


The answer is #3. Goro was purring like a
music box when he came here to live with us.

Goro is Mr. Purr.

Niko is named after Japanese word "niko niko."

"Niko niko" is an expression of smiling face.

Niko is Mr. Smile.

We hope you purr and smile every day that is filled with
feelings of happiness and moments of laughter!

  19. Oh my. Those are LOVELY names, Boys. I don't think you'll have to guess much about why I am named Spitty. At least she doesn't say it twice. That's good I guess. Sigh.

  24. Hi Tamago,
    just the right names for your sweet boys. I know how it is when a cat purrs itself into a heart. Thats the nicest sound I ever heard. May be I have been a cat in my former life. And Niko is so sweet smiling. You are blessed with two supercute furry friends.
    Best greetings, Johanna
