Goro's 5th Birthday




I've been growing this catmint for Goro & Niko.


Sadly, they are not interested in it.


Goro is such a Daddy's boy :-)


We celebrated Goro's 5th birthday on May 30.
His Dad got sashimi. I used catmint as garnish.

My understanding is that raw fish shouldn't be a regular
diet but is okay as occasional treat. Kids are already on
raw diet (with exception of cooked chicken for snack.)

Goro's ready-set-eat position


Yum-yum time!


Niko was napping then, so he had sashimi later.


Our cheerful, playful, wonderful son Goro.
Happy birthday, sunshine!!

  2. Oh Goro - wishing you the most wonderful birthday! 5 years old! You are just a wee young kitty yet. I hope you enjoyed your raw fish and hopefully you had a little bit of the 'green salad' with it. ;)
    Happy June kitties!

  6. Happy Birthday! I don’t eat catnip either when it’s on the plant. I like it dried. I’ve never had sushi or raw food.

  11. Happy No. 5 Birthday, Goro!

    Perhaps your mom is growing the wrong stuff. There is catNIP and catMINT, two different species, and we felines like the NIP variety. All is not lost though...the MINT is great in tea!

  14. Happy 5th birthday, Goro-Chan! How cool that you got sashimi! If you and Niko-Chan are not interested in catnip, has your Mom tried matatabi? We all love matatabi, but not so much catnip.

    Purrs,

  19. Dearest Tamago,
    Happy belated 5th birthday to Goro boy! What a lovely photos and oh, we have had such surprises after growing something in a pot for them to snack on but NOPE!
    One never knows what they want and WHEN.
    Sure they enjoyed your sashimi and are they not lovely for clinging to 'their' favorite human?!
    Hugs to you,
    Mariette

  25. Wow; happy belated 5th birthday Goro-chan♡♡♡ Haha, Niko-chan must have asked you sashimi eagerly later:) To tell the truth, I've never heard of catmint; what a happy pair your boys are(*^_^*) Sure they must be a sunshine for you two♪♪♪

  26. All that hard work and your cats do not like it. At last it looks pretty.

  27. Wow. You did a great job with the catmint! It's a pity the boys aren't interested in it. I planted two pots of catnip and was very sad that none of my cats was interested. But I kept giving it to them and now they actually like it. :) So keep offering the catmint to them. They might like it one day.

    Happy Birthday, Goro! The sashimi looks really yummy!

  28. Oh, Happy Happy Birthday.

    For birthday I usually close with Let there be cake... but for you and brother, I think it would be,
