Poopy Tale

When I start cleaning Goro & Niko's toilet,
Goro often comes to use it.

Usually it's to go poopy. (I wonder why.)
Anyway, I just wait until he finishes.

It's a pleasure to see healthy stool coming out.
Freshly made one looks shiny and moist.
The aroma immediately fills the bathroom.....

One day, Goro's stool came out like linked sausages.
Hmm...maybe he got a little hairball.

*I drew picture instead of using real photo

Next day. It came with... a LONG TAIL!

It was not hair...looked much wider.
But what is this then?

I decided to take a closer look using my
stool dissection kit. (This kit is disposable.)

And found out it was...

Just a cat grass! Whew!

Glad it wasn't scary worm or something...

Oh, Goro. How did you turn over the pot?
This is heavy with soil.

Message from Goro to
human children;

That's true!

That's only for Goro, I think.


  1. Mommy would add: kids, don't eat corn silk! Or you COULD get a tail...

    How she knows this we have no idea.

  2. Hope you guys had a very fun 4th!

  3. lol.. I love that you investigated! and am glad that everything 'came out' ok in the end ;)

  4. Tamago, I absolutely LOVE L.O.V.E this post! You and Goro and Niko ROCK! This was your funniest ever! xoxoxo

  5. That was great friends, thanks for the scoop MOL!

  6. We love grass, too!!
    It's really really good for us!!!!

  7. LOL! I often say all pet owners get a weird obsession with poop!

  8. Haha! Our mom thought she was the only one that dissected poops. :)

  9. Now that is pretty cool having poop with a tail. We are happy that tail was a good thing. Those veggies are good for you! Hugs and nose kisses

  10. molol! hmmm...the poop dissection must be a mom thing...ours does that here too :D we tend to yak up grass before it has a chance to pass through. hee hee!

  11. You had me scared there for a minute! Our cats wait to go until the box has just been scooped, so they can have it all fresh. Then when they finish, they put their tails up and run really fast!! It is like they are saying "That feels so much better!"

  12. Good grief... Glad it all turned out ok but wow...

  13. Dearest Tamago,
    You ALWAYS come up with such great and true life stories of your kids! Oh, they must do this on purpose to use the litter box when JUST being cleaned up...
    I would LOVE to know what is going on in those little heads.
    Hugs to you,

  14. Poop is one of my favorite topics! This was a fantastic post!

  15. Oh Goro, my Human is just like yours! You are a good role model for me buddy, I don't eat vegetables...I need to take your advice. Have a wonderful week, my boys!

  16. Good Cod, Goro. You made us laugh!
    Our Mommy loves scooping poop. Can you imagine!

  17. It's strange how my cats do the same thing, they approach the little while I am cleaning it...strange

  18. R cats do the same

  19. Dearest Goro-chan,
    I'm amazed to know how carefully your mom taking care of your health♬♬♬  You are really lucky to have such a loving mom♡♡♡ Haha, you know what mom will do and that motivates your.... p;)
    Anyway, it is relieving to know nothing is wrong with you.

    cat grassは初めて知りました。心配な状態でなくて良かったです。ハハ、たまには”おいた”もありますね♡♡♡
    Take care of yourself as well, my Japanese friend in America♬♬♬
    Lots of Love and hugs to you, xoxo Miyako*


  20. Banjo is always waiting to use the kitty litter as I am cleaning it out too. Then I wait and reclean it. I guess kitties like using clean bathrooms. :)

  21. aren't you embarrassed with your human photographing your private area. Humans can be quite thoughtless. I like grass too.

  22. Awwwwww lovely Goro!!! Your poop has a grassy tail! LOL! Good for you! It's fibre and helps your digestion!

    Hugs too to sweet Niko! Take care

  23. Oh my, glad all turned out well :-)
    And what a strong boy Goro is ... and so cute !
    Nice week,

  24. You know what they say: It all comes out in the end! MOL!
    We have the odd poopie here too. Dad looks when he scoops and says you can head of problems with a bit of knowledge. He is a Nursey-Man (Tim Ducks a toy mousie thrown by Dad)

    Our Rumpy Bump also just has to go when Dad is scooping. Great Man Cats think alike
    Funny Post!

  25. MOL! Goro-chan, your Mom sure takes very careful notes of your pooping style! :) With that cat grass, your poops are quite artistic!

    Hugs to you, Niko and Mom and Dad

  26. Too funny! One of my cats, Shady used to do the same soon as the litter was clean she was right in there making sure it wasn't anymore. We used to call her "stinky".

    Glad to know there was nothing wrong, just undigested cat grass!

  27. LOL, dear Goro you're lucky to have an observant mom. P.S. sometimes these 'tails' get stuck outside the anus. It's happened to two of our boys and I had to pull it out.

  28. MOL Goro, your Mom is so very funny. She just has the best sense of humor. What a good boy you are to put up with her silliness. Hope all of you have a great evening.

  29. here it's the same thing, when I go to clean their litter box...oh see it...there is a line waiting to *caugh* "delivering"

  30. Can't a cat get some privacy in the box?? That's a little graphic. heh heh.

  31. My Aunti Blossom waits anxiously for litter boxes to be cleaned. She LOVES using the box, first. She loves it so much that she'll use it even if she doesn't have to go!


  32. Oh. OH! Goro, we just don't know about this. Not the poop part, the green grass. We don't have that here and now we're certain someone here needs to fix that right this minute! Purrs...

  33. I scoop the boy's boxes twice a day and still they always have to use the litter as soon as I'm finished cleaning!!!! I don't know if it is because they like a fresh box or just to get their smells back in there asap :-)

  34. Me too is using my litterbox rihgt after my mom-person have cleaned it and me too have tail´s on my poop because I eat a lot of grass when I´m out on walks :)

  35. Until we read it was grass we thought you had pooped a mouse's tail!

  36. MOL=what a silly post, handsome boys!!...Happy weekend, precious friends...kisses...Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

  37. You are so funny! I liked your catio interview on catwisdom101 too.

  38. Don't want you to miss this reply:
    Dearest Tamago,
    That's exactly why I felt so at home while being in Japan; so close to the Dutch way of going green! No air-conditioning running in the bus while it is parked stationary etc. It all makes so much sense and here they cool way too deep if you go to a conference you are freezing. Wearing evening gowns with goosebumps and what an energy waste!
    It is the way you have always lived that you continue to live. We're not such impulsive waste-creators. We think twice or even trice before purchasing anything. Always trying to recycle, repurpose or even upcycle. Driving energy conscious (Japanese) cars and so on. It looks like more people start thinking green as the high costs and bad economy makes them think twice.
    We have another terrible wet day. I still have to do some tile cleaning but they are either wet or you get rained out...
    Enjoy your wet weekend.
