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.


  1. You are very kind to help you Mom so much, but you should probably skip the driving part!

  2. You two are working as hard as your human to keep your human from getting so exhausted! I think the result is all three of you are probably tired. Maybe it's time for everyone to take a nap.

  3. Our mom says the same thing...she works hard so she can buy us food and toys. We hope your mom gets some free time soon so she can spend more time with both of you!!

  4. You both are so good to help your mom like you do. Tell mom not to worry about visiting us - we"ll be here when she gets unbusy. We just loves you guys.

  5. You sweet boys continue helping Mom as she works. And tell her we miss her and you boys, but she shouldn't worry about visiting.
    xoxo Kassey and her Mom

  6. Mom is working too hard! She needs to go the opposite way in that stream! Or maybe she can find some relaxation in the Gulf Stream and take a well-needed vacation in the Caribbean!

    PS. No eating salmon Goro and Niko until Mom shape shifts back to a human again! :)

  7. You boys are very good to help your mum to be happy!!! Kitty loving and tummies for rubs can help us overcome any hardship :-)

  8. I Just think your mom look " YUMMMMM " tee..heh..heh
    and Please tell her it's not good idea for her to lie down and say " I can't swim anymore " Because she might got no chance to rub tummy but be inside the tummy instead...tee..heh..heh

    I hope your mom still love me : )
    It's not my fault, she should not be a salmon in this post ..MOL

  9. Wow you guys work very very hard. Mom is so lucky to have your support.

  10. Sorry your mom has to work so hard! You boys are very good to support her when she is tired.

    ps: I wish I could drive a car, too!

  11. It does make life easier when after a long hard day at work to come home to such delightful and helpful kitties. It seems wrong that we have to work so hard doesn't it?

    Hope you get to rest and take it easy a bit mom!!
    xo Catherine

  12. No need for your mom to apologize for not being able to visit! We all understand. And really, no one can keep up with all the blogs, there are so many around the CB now.

    We hope your mom's work pace eases soon and that she gets some rest so she's not exhausted!

  13. You boys are working *almost* as hard as your Mom! Mommy burst out laughing at your method of "depositing".

    Why was Goro's license suspended? Surely not for speeding or reckless driving.

  14. You two are such sweeties. We are glad you are helping your mom so she doesn't have to work so hard. All of you get some good rest when you can...we are sure you need it after all the hard work you do. Hugs and nose kisses

  15. It is so good to see you back. I just love reading your posts or I should say we do. We sure understand about the working really hard. Blogging takes a long time.
    Goro and Niko, you did a great job in making Mom happier. Nothing better than a good cat snuggle. Hope the job eases up a little bit for Mom.

  16. Welcome back! WE missed you too.
    So good of Goro and Niko to help make Mom happy again. And for making huge deposits (LOL!!).

  17. Oh boys, your "Happy Furball Services" is an excellent business! You two are helping out your Mom a lot, that's awesome! I'm going to bring over some "potato water" to help your Mom unwind & relax after work and I'm going to give Niko driving lessons so he can drive your Mom back and forth. Purrs to your Mom for her to feel more rested and for work to ease up. Have a great week boys and Mom!

  18. My Human would like to hire you Boys. I do not provide many of the services on that list and my Human is not above paying others to perform them. She's especially interested in the exposed bellies and the snuggling.

    Do you have a price list?

  19. I enjoy making huge deposits too. Sometimes it makes mommy cry. She says its cuz it stinks.... but i think she's just overly proud of me.

  20. Oh Niko and are the very best of kids for your mommy. Please do take Clooney up on his offer, to give you, Niko, driving lessons. YOu are loving kids.

    This is Katie...xoxoxoxoxo

  21. Cats are more important than blog comments. Hope you are left millions of money by an eccentric millionaire soon!

  22. Hi Tamago,
    there are times which need all our energie. I love your cats Goro and Niko, they looks so cute. What a nice post, maybe they think really how they can entertain you. Wish you a wonderful time. Best greetings, Johanna

  23. Oh you boys are doing a great job of caring fur you mommy. We sure hopes that her gets some rests soon.

  24. Kitties are the best! They are great stress relievers.

    Niko and Goro - keep being cute for your mom and give her cuddles and purrs. It will help her a lot :)

    Mom - Don't forget to make time for you. Hang in there, it'll get better!

  25. Your mom sure works hard for you, but we are glad that you two sweet boys do YOUR jobs so well, too. We can see how it makes her feel much better! :)

  26. Dearest Tamago,

    Great story as ALWAYS! You are full of ideas. Michiko's son posted some great news today and I was so pleased to read it. All of us together can make a difference!
    Love to you and take care, drive safely.


  27. Oh Goro, Niko! I can so understand your Mommi's struggle...I too am a struggling salmon but the salmon is better cos it's struggling in cool water while Aunty Tooki is struggling with her tongue hanging in hot, humid conditions...:( Pets of the world always bring happiness to their owners (crazy, abusive owners not counted here), bless you both!

  28. I'm here boys. I am following you now as Katie not Admiral. xoxox

  29. You two are definitely very good at doing your job of being cute. We're sure you two are a very big help to your mom by helping her relax after work.

  30. Hey Boys, Nice to see your faces, though it does seem about time for your Mommy to be working on a new post for you. Just sayin'. Heh heh.

  31. Just let your Mom catch her breath when she gets home from work and then shout for your dinners - she'll be very grateful and give you double helpings.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  32. Oh my goodness, this post made me laugh so much, and I completely understand too... I'm also that small fish swimming in a big ocean right now working hard and not getting much time for blogging - if only there were 50 hours in a day we might get everything done!! :)
