Goro's 6th Anniversary

Goro's ice cream cone toys

He loves to carry them around.

So the toys travel throughout the house.

On stairs

Under the bed

Niko's favorite napping spot...

But they always, always come back to
one place: under the table in a living room
- and I know why.

Because that's the table his Dad
spends his time at a lot.

Goro is such a Daddy's boy :-)

Lately, his line of gift items expanded.

And the best gift of all...

On September 22, we celebrated
Goro's 6th Gotcha Day.

He has brought so much
laughter and happiness into our life. 
Goro is truly a precious gift for us!

Snack for Goro & Niko

Here you go, Goro. Enjoy!

No, nothing special. I just
love you, and you are so handsome.

...and you are going to the Vet.

It's just a regular checkup, Goro.
I had to have one last month as well.

No...I wasn't rolled in a towel like burrito because
I didn't threaten people in the exam room.

Oh, Niko.
You are going to the Vet, too.

We all went to the Vet this week.

Goro for annual checkup
Niko for dental & heart murmur check

It's OK, kids. You'll be fine.

Some "burrito making" happened but
the checkup went fairly well.

I'm happy to report that both Goro & Niko
 got good results. Hopefully we don't
have to go back until next regular checkup!

Thank You

Thank you so much for your kind words
and sympathies at loss of our Kit.
Your support really meant a world to us.

Kit's ashes
He looks smiling in this picture

Goro was attached to me during the 
1st weekend of Kit's passing,

Niko's concerned eyes always followed me.

Thank you, boys. I'm better now.

To show appreciation,
I made a new snack for them.

Boil Goro & Niko's bonito flakes in a pot

Strain out the flakes

Freeze the broth & serve!

What a great summer treat.
Here you go, Goro.

Well, that failed spectacularly.....


Along with ashes, we received lock of Kit's fur
(which was unexpected and made me cry..)

We decided to keep his fur in a frame.

He was a truly precious kitten.
