Then & Now

Goro is a big boy now, but he was a
teeny-tiny kitten when he came here in 2009.

Grown-up Goro

King Goro napping with fish...

Of course, they are different fishes.
Goro hasn't grown THAT big :-)

Goro's first winter

Then came spring

Big difference?
Goro got a brother in 2010!

Baby Niko

Niko has grown into a fluffy cat :-)

Goro & Niko may be grown-ups now,
but they are always my babies.

And love for them will never stop growing!


  1. SQUEEE!!!! How adorable he was as a kitten tot - and how noble and handsome a mancat he has become.

  2. I love these pictures. It is hard to remember (without pictures) just how tiny they were as kittens!!! You have so many nice towers, beds etc. for the cats. I know you love them both very much and thank you for sharing them with me!!!

  3. I do not like kittens, I like old grown up cats but...
    Baby Goro has to be the cutiest sweetest kitty I have ever seen ! I would have scooped him up and ran away with him. (hahahahaha with my walker)
    Then here comes sweetheart, floof Nico.
    ackkkkkk the cuteness overload.
    I love your darling photos today.

    cheers, parsnip

  4. awww, such sweet pictures! we love the one of Goro with baby Niko :)

  5. And we see they BOTH grew into their ears! Mommy loves to see gray kittens...Rupert appeared when he was an adult so she likes to imagine what he looked like as a tot.

  6. Aw, what a special and loving remembrance of Goro and Niko from little to big cats. Yes, we understand, they will always be your babies, Tamago-san. :)

  7. Such beautiful babies and so very, very happy too!

  8. We LOVE the comparison photos - and mommy snickered a LOT at the fishie photos!!

  9. Excellent! Comparing 'before' photos to 'after' is so darn cute!

  10. OMC! Those are the cutest pictures! Goro and Niko have grown from cuties to handsome mancats. :)

Dearest Tamago-san; Oh My, How LOVELY to see when your boys were such sweet cute babies♡♡♡ My favorite pictures are the first adorable Goro-chan and the one "Big difference"(♡˘◡˘♡) And I wondered where RELAXED looking two brothers were casting their eyes :-) If you were taking photos, maybe to beloved papa♫♫♫ Such heartwarming closing word, Tamago-san;

  25. Hi Tamago,
    istn't it cute that Goro still lay in the same poses as a baby? Love the pictures. I didn't realize that Goro was so big when Niko arrived. I alway thought, they are twins. So nice that Goro accepted little Nico. They are supercute.
    Best greetings, Johanna

  26. I DO love these baby cats pics!

  27. Hi Tamago San!
    So nice to looking back Goro san was Georgias all neally baby time, of course just like us Tamago San!
    Also they no need stayed in outside!

  28. Dearest Tamago,
    Wow, that were very fun pictures! Oh yes, how they change and at times not at all... They too love to remain 'baby' with lots of special attention. I call them babies, still and guess they understand.
    Haha, that fishie and than a tiny fish; it would be awful if their sizing had been proportional!
    Niko had tiger stripes as a baby. I've also noticed that on ours, and sometimes brown fur that later turns into dark, almost black fur. Just like human beings might change as they grow up.
    Enjoy your special and super cute babies!

  29. You were so amazingly cute as a baby <3

  30. We enjoyed seeing all the pics of Goro as a kitten and of Niko too! We understand purrfectly, everybuddy here is and will always be, LP's babies! And yes, her love for us grows with each passing day too! :)

    the critters in the cottage xo

  31. We love these old pics especially the one of Niko kitten with his big brother but now they are the same size.

  32. so cute! laughed at the fish comparison photos. :)

  33. Goro você era um bebê muito lindo!
    Toda as fotos são adoráveis.

  34. Whoa! I never realized Niko has tabby stripes. Wonderful to see them as kittens.

  35. I love the stripe on kitty....grey on grey, he's very trendy.

    They are gorgeous lovely cats and I can see why you love them so much.
