Cats & Eggs


My coworker gave me eggs from his farm. They
looked wonderfully different from one another:-)

I love eggs. Sunny-side up egg is my favorite.
(Tummy-side up cat is my favorite, too!)

Made a snack for Goro & Niko using the egg.

Kit had the snack, too.

August 20th marked 5th anniversary
of Kit's passing.

He is always in our hearts.


We wish you all have a wonderful week :-)

Sweet Meow

Niko has the sweetest voice in the world.

His charming meow is like singing,
or like he is twinkling.

Even his cat fight voice is twinkly.

Niko makes the cutest sound when
he yawns in mid-meow :-)

But in the early summer, I noticed a change.

Niko's meow started
coming out hoarse and crackly.

I turned on humidifier and air purifier,
hoping they would help.

Then to the Vet.

(Due to COVID-19, pawrents had to wait outside)

Nose drops were suggested as one of
the treatment options.

I got you a magic water, Niko.

Although I practiced, my hand trembled.
The drop went right into his eye.

SO SORRY, Niko...

Anyway over time, his voice improved.
Eventually, Niko's sweet twinkle was back!

I keep watching his condition closely,
and hope it stays OK!

We hope you all stay healthy as well!

Goro's 11th Birthday

Goro is purrfect in so many ways.

He is super handsome.

Very playful.

He naps like an angel.

Always helpful when I'm
making kitty snacks.

Gorgeous tummy.

And don't forget his sexy legs :-)

Goro is a good brother to Niko.

He is quite an artist, too.
Look what he peed the other day.

Swim, fishie, swim!

On May 30th, Goro turned 11 years old.
He is purrfect just the way he is.

Happy birthday, Goro! We love you♥♥♥

Gift from Japan

Look what we got! N-Chan, our friend from
Japan, kindly sent us this fantastic package!

Let's try this cat comb.

It's not a toy, Goro ~ :-)

Niko enjoyed the comb very much.

And he really loved this blanket.

Now it's Niko's favorite kneading dough :-)

I enjoyed yummy cookies!

Sorry, Goro, but cookies are mine :-)

Thank you, N-Chan, for your wonderful gifts!


How is everyone doing? We hope
you all stay safe and have a fun weekend!

Niko's 10th Anniversary

February 28 was Niko's 10th Gotcha Day!

I decided to make a special snack.

Goro~~ not yet!

Baking in the toaster oven

OK, Goro. Let's do the taste test.

My theme was "fancy hors d'oeuvres".
Final result was not so pretty, but I tried :-)

Now, time to eat!

Niko loves his (and Goro's) snacks :-)

Niko is our sweet and charming baby boy.
♥♥♥ Happy Gotcha Day, Niko! ♥♥♥

A Shining Star

Hawaii is one of my favorite places.

I love the beautiful ocean...

Yummy food

Laid-back atmosphere

But the best part is LOCATION!

Hawaii is right at the halfway point between
Japan and mainland U.S.

Last year, I got to visit Hawaii twice. Met up
with my Japanese family in spring, then
my friend N-Chan from Tokyo in summer.

N-Chan and I share the love for fur kids.

While in Hawaii, we talked passionately about
our fur kids and how wonderful they are.

Earlier this week. After long happy years,
her beloved boy Vitz left this world.

My heart breaks for N-Chan and her husband.

Photo borrowed from her Instagram page

In the dark night on the island of Hawaii, we
looked up and admired the sky filled with stars.

Vitz, the new star, is now shining among them.

Sky over busy Tokyo won't show all these stars.

But I'm sure that N-Chan will find Vitz - because
he will shine the brightest for his parents.
