Good Brother

For Niko, I think Goro is...

Groomer who loves to clean against Niko's will.

Big eater who is willing to "share" food.

*When it comes to chicken, Niko "shares" as well.

Playmate who tends to play too hard.

And another thing, which I tell you with an episode.

One winter...Niko was not feeling well
for a couple of days.

He stayed inside a cat tree cave.

Niko is not feeling well, Goro.
Please let him rest, okay?

Then I found Goro in front of the cat tree.

He was keeping Niko company, 
while checking on him from time to time.

I was moved.

So Goro is a good brother who stays by
Niko's side, looking after him.

I know Goro always cherishes Niko inside his heart.

Deep, deep inside :-)


  1. This is so sweet! You can see there is much love between the two of them and when all is good, it's play time. The two of them certainly know how to entertain! :)

  2. This is a little like my relationship with Binga.

  3. Dearest Tamago,
    Loved all these stories with perfect text; that's what they probably think in reality.
    Love their faces and yes, ours play like that too. Love, play and at times rough but with love!
    Hugs to you,

  4. What a really sweet story!!!!

  5. Dear Tamago,
    your two sweet cats are really special cute. Thta shows that cats are not such loner as people say. They live with their family in a community. So sweet how your two act together. Best greetings, Johanna

  6. Goro is a nice brother in his very
    own way to show~!

    I am admiring Niko,
    I am still waiting my brother Lego will loves me in any way.

  7. Goro definitely is a good brother. Yes, we see that he cherishes his Niko, "deep, deep inside." LOL.

  8. Awwwwww gorgeous Goro is lovely Niko's gentle groomer and gregarious guide! LOL!!! He is the ying to Niko's yang!! They are so adorable together!! Take care

  9. awww so touching...I am so in love with cats I could never live without one around me...And I love the little house their mommy bought for them :).

  10. Dearest Tamago-san,

    ゴロちゃんの優しい気遣いと、心配な気持ちが写真とcaption から本当に良く伝わってきますね♬♬♬ ニコちゃんはもう大丈夫かな。 二人共いつまでも仲良くネ (v^_^v)~*

  12. Unlike Johnny and The Baby. Johnson would like to EAT The Baby and have her deep down inside...his guts!

  13. You both really are very, very special!

  14. Goro is such a good brother. Niko probably just wishes he would show his love in a less, um, pouncy kind of way. MOL.

    It reminds me of when Whisky wasn't well and Ling would sit close to her to keep her company. :)

  15. Oh that picture of Goro watching over Niko is just too cute. He can be a good brother. Good boy Goro. Hope all of you have a super day.

  16. We love that Goro really is a good brother to Niko. Even the best of brothers play too rough sometimes. :)

  17. The photos and story are sweet, what a lovely pair of man cats!

  18. How sweet they are together, its great that they have such a strong relationship I love seeing that with my pets

    urban hounds

  19. Goro san, Niko san does NOT like to wrestle...he would rather not. I, Katie invite him to come see me for the time you want to wrestle. OK? xoxoxox

  20. hee hee! well, at least Goro does know how and most importantly, when, to hold himself back.

  21. Goro is a good brother. He can't help it if he is just a little more rambunctious than sweet-natured Niko. Niko should get a little meaner, maybe, ha ha meow!

  22. Dearest Tamago,
    Have to put the reply here again because there is no email available to send it to.

    Dearest Tamago,
    Our weekend was great however we too had a heavy rain on Saturday shortly after midnight and again yesterday after lunch time a thunder storm. Good that the power came back on at your home. Thanks for the compliment and so sorry for one of your look-alike girls that went over the Rainbow Bridge. We all love our pets and that speaks volumes.
    By the way, did you know that here in the USA they now have the Royce chocolate?
    One more thing you maybe didn't know yet:
    That book is from 2000 so it will now be 413 years of friendship.
    Hugs, also for your precious boys!

  23. Aw, Goro is a wonderful, devoted brother and we know Niko loves his attention and playfulness!...We always love your awesome photo spreads!...Happy week ahead, precious friends...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  24. Aw, Goro loves his brofur. As it should be.

  25. We love to see a good wrassling match!
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  26. Oh, what a sweet story, Goro is a true friend !
    Big hugs to Goro and Niko :-)
    Have a wonderful week,

  27. We love brotherly love. Our boys look after each other too. Purrrs for a great week!

  28. Oh my boys, you two are good buds for sure even though you each have different purrsonalities. You are great company for each other and it was so sweet of Goro to be watching out for Niko when he was in the cave. Have a wonderful week my boys, we always love reading your posts!

    Dearest Tamago,
    You are right on that one. Funny how felines select to sleep. At times our kitty beds were filled up in an entire row inside the garage. I remember that one time when the UPS guy came inside and shook his head. It was winter though and they love to curl up in them. During spring, summer and fall they are more outside than inside (except or breakfast and supper and a snack in-between.
    Yep, Royce has now come to the US and it sure is GOOD chocolate!

    Larger closet is always better and worth a little less office space :-)
    My boys won't use kitty bed like Smokey does. They rather nap on the floor or on the pile of laundry!

    I did not know Royce chocolate are in the U.S! Thank you for the info, I love their chocolate. The best is potato chips covered with chocolate. So yummy!
