Valentine's Day Ideas

Valentine's Day is coming soon! In Japan, it's common
for women to give chocolate to men on Valentine's Day.

As a Japanese woman, I'm thinking about getting
chocolate for my valentine this year. What kind? Let's see...

Maybe a lip-shaped chocolate...

Or chocolate-covered strawberries...

How about a fancy Godiva chocolate...

I know what would be great!

Cat-shaped, fur-covered Gorova chocolate.

It's a soft, silky, smooth chocolate.

With a bittersweet flavor 

It is THE perfect chocolate for special someone!

Don't worry, Niko. It's for your Dad.
I'll get something yummy and safe for you :-)

(And don't worry, we are not going to eat Goro!)


  1. My human likes to bite my ear. Strange, since I don't think I am chocolate flavored!

  2. I don't care who gives me the chocolate...the guys or the girls....I just want some! ;)

    I think you kitties are sweet enough - no sugar needed. haha!

  3. Our mom says she would love some Goro chocolate for Valentine's Day...and she said she wouldn't eat him either!

  4. mol! this post made our mom drool! mmmm...chocolate! we wouldn't mind some Goro chocolate either... :D

  5. Aaaahhh....Goro is the best dark chocolate ever. Helps to reduce cholesterol and hypertension. purrr.....meow!

  6. Ahhhh. Gorova is only for smelling...not eating. We hope you get a non-biting valentine treat, Niko! MOL.

  7. Dearest Tamago-san,
    Haha, please do not eat Goro. But he looks really pretty with ribbon. Don't scare Niko.
    I LOVE a fancy Godiva chocolate♡♡♡ I may buy for both of us and enjoy it.
    Love and hugs to you, xoxo Miyako*

  8. Cats are the sweetest gift ever!

    1. A fur-covered chocolate cat, hehehe! Very cute, and Godiva at that! We didn't know that about women giving men chocolates. Have you heard of chocolate cat tongues? That was Mom Julie's first introduction to anything chocolate having to do with cats. They are tongue-shaped chocolates and called cat tongues (German, I think) Not actual tongues!! My goodness, how would we speak??


    2. Sorry, but our comment wouldn't go thru any other way. I know ::hangs head:: it looks dumb..


  9. WE like the chocolate lips. Those are so great. Goro, you do make a nicely wrapped almost looking chocolate. But we really don't think you would be very tasty. We would want that ribbon off too, pronto. Take care.

  10. Oh we thinks that a "Gorova" chocolate is a superb choice for the Dad! Have a great week kitties, awesome post!

  11. Goro, you make a very adorable chocolate, but we would not want to eat you up, either. :)

  12. ha ha - I think we should celebrate Japanese style. Yelling to M - better get some chocolate in the house for valentines day. Afterall, I'm their main sweetie.

  13. Well your a pretty chocolate for sure, but I think getting eaten up would not be so good. Tell mom to stick to those chocolate covered strawberries

  14. Now that's a sweet idea, Goro! We'd like that.

  15. OMC I LOVE THIS! What wonderful chocolate that kitty chocolate is!

    I never knew that in Japan the women give men chocolate for Valentine's is is more men that give it to women! Love the chocolate covered lips too!

  16. Whew! I was a little worried Goro was going to end up in someHuman's tummy! But he did look pretty scrumptious with that ribbon around his belly.....

  17. HAHA! Love the ribbon comment.
    I know what I want for Valentines Day.....SALMON!!!
    Chocolate, schmocolate!
    xo Katie

  18. Goro, you look absolutey toothsome and scrumptious. So does Niko. Niko doesn't have that bothersome ribbon to remove before we eat him up though. Those are two tempting Valentine's gifts..Niko and Goro. xoxox from Katie Isabella's mommy.

  19. Cute post!...We would love to nibble on you, handsome Goro!!hehe :) Happy day, sweet boys...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  20. Must be nice for Japanese men on Valentine's what do girls get? Oh, Goro you really look not too pleased about that ribbon haha! Wonder what you will do if the ribbon doesn't get off??

  21. You've got some great ideas!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  22. Maybe your Mom could make you some heart shaped shrimp cakes? Or kiss-shaped chicken treats??

  23. Gorova chan!
    You look gorgeous with the ribbon.

  24. Smile, it would be a bit a hairy chocolate :o). I love the strawberry chocolates... they just look great.
    Have a nice Sunday.

  25. ha haa a... we would love to unwrap Goro... have a lovely Valentines Day. Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx
