Goro's 1st Anniversary

On September 22 last year,
Goro became a beloved member of the family.

We celebrated his first anniversary
with boiled chicken dinner together.

 He is enormous now, but one year ago...

He was just a small fur ball.
 He was only 4 months old then.

Goro was like a feather, but he gained
about 9 lbs. in a year.

He was smaller than you are now, Niko.
Can you imagine?

Niko's secret plan aside,
back then...

Goro got upper respiratory infection
and scarring around his mouth.
Even with frequent visits to the vet
and taking medication, though,
he was a happy, cheerful boy.

Goro liked to play a lot - He still does,
 and sometimes gets too playful.

He wanted to try human food - He still does,
and we have to keep
an eye on our dish all the time.

He jumped in a refrigerator when it was opened
- He still does, and we don't want to refrigerate him.

He slept like an angel - He still does,
and he can fall asleep anywhere.

He was so loved by his new Mom and Dad
- He still is and will be forever.

Happy Anniversary☆

    I think Goro (or Niko) would be a perfect entry in the Lifetime photo contest! I'm trying to spread the word to as many cat lovers as possible. The contest details are here:

    Submit a picture for the chance to win a one-year supply of cat food, cash, a flat-screen TV or even a walk-on role in a Lifetime movie!

    Thanks so much and have a great day:). Happy Anniversary, Goro!!
