Power of Chicken

We serve boiled chicken as a daily snack
for Goro and Niko.

They enjoy it, especially Niko - he is madly in
love with chicken and wants it all the time.

No, Niko. We already had a happy hour. 
(Happy hour = snack time before going to bed.), Niko, we are not going to the kitchen 
even though my legs are very happy right now.

Then he waits at the stairs.

At this point, I am under Niko's magic spell.

OK, just a little bit, Niko.

Like one of the rats or children who followed magic
pipe in Pied Piper of Hamelin, I am often lured
into kitchen, charmed by Niko's irresistible cuteness.

Now, I'd like to mention
 that Niko is usually shy and reserved.

I've seen Niko's food dish taken over by Goro
a number of times.

But when it comes to chicken...

Yes, Niko can be quite strong :-)

  2. Dearest Tamago,

    Oh you got some precious and very 'cunning' fur babies there! Both know how to play you well. But don't think that ours are any different! They know exactly how and what they can get from their human parents. And we love them for being that smart.
    They have a beautiful fur thanks to excellent nutrition. Enjoy them.
    Love to you,


  3. You are very furrtunate kitties! Teri had chick-hen tonight and we knew she wouildn't give us any so we didn't even get out of bed!

  4. Chicken brings out the wildcat in both me and Binga!

  5. Youreally are special and you have a wonderful staff!

  6. Oh NIKO HERO! I am so PROUD of you for standing your ground with Goro san. That is ALL YOUR chicken. And you both look so handsome, like dark satin.

    You know how to beguile your mom very well and I see I will never have to whisper to you how to accomplish Happy Hour. You do VERY well, my Hero. xxxoooxxx

  7. Now we know where chicken stands with Niko! Your post will help Mom Julie remember to pick up some chicken for us at the supermarket..that's CHICKEN FOR US AT THE SUPERMARKET!! Sorry, we just wanted to make sure she saw this..hehehe

  8. So, Niko has his Mommy pretty well trained! Seems like she'll do anything for a little love, heh heh.

  9. Good job, Niko! You have your mom wrapped around your little paw!!

  10. Hahaha! That's really funny the way boiled chicken changes Niko. LOL.

  11. Awww, it's the same in our place! Except our chikkun is roasted. We should have a dinner party!

  12. LOL! Niko seems very passionate about his chicken! Perhaps that is how you kitties stay nice and slim by eating real chicken.
    Such a face on Goro as Niko is licking Goro's bowl. Cute cute!

  13. You must make great chicken! Meow meow! I'm waiting for mine.

  14. Oh the person won't let us read this post because she doesn't want us to get any ideas about some boiled chicken. We do get every now and then but not often enough. Goro, you are too darn cute asking for that treat. Good work.

  15. Oh yummmm, I don't get that often enough either, (Glaring looks at M).

  16. We LOVE chicken, too, Niko! Good job placing your Mom under your spell. And we are proud of you for being so strong with Goro about your chicken. Hey, a mancat has to have priorities, right? :)

  17. You get it EVERY DAY! We only get it a few times a week so we are really jealous!!!

  22. Nice snack but not a full meal because of the missing nutrients. Enjoy you lucky boys!

  23. We cats are in direct contact with our tummies so when our tummies say, "more chicken needed," we listen. So nice of you to oblige. purrs

  27. I wish I had a regular Happy Hour at my house!

  28. haha...Coco does the same and has her own way of asking for nightly snacks! I wish she loves chicken as much as Niko though...
