Mikan-chan had a health check. Dr. O, her veterinarian, introduced us a gentle couple who adopted Tora-chan’s 4 kittens.
She was so cute. Just in a golf ball size, clinging to the air conditioner hood from inside. Darling, both of your babies failed to survive. They may be injured while going through the drain. Find out better nest outdoors. Good luck!
How to dance “Echigo-Shishi” lesson finished. It has a scene to swing sarashi. It is so eye-catching that ardent practice is necessary. However, swinging sarashi would lure Mikan-chan too much at home. Therefore, Mei-Shun decided to rent a Japanese-style room in nearby community center.
A skinny kitten stays around the garage of Master Mei-Shu for 2 weeks. 2 kittens crouched in the porch at the time of previous lesson, yet only one was there last Friday. She never moves when Mei-Shun comes nearby, maybe with no power to run. We know who the culprit is – those who never take care of litters, nor stop breeding of their pets, be punished.
Master Mei-Shu gave Mei-Shun a lesson from 18:00. Since it is too hard to drive midday in summer, lesson time would be late in the afternoon. As for winter, daytime is preferred to steer clear of sunset. In the first place, driving in kimono is quite dangerous …
Midsummer Japan, with such a hard humidity and high temperature, needs appropriate air-conditioning – it avoids both heat illness and summer cold. Japanese dance lessons, on the other hand, require cool-enough air for good concentration.
Torrid summer hurts us. Mikan-chan does not like cooled rooms, runs away soon after the air-conditioner starts working. She might feel artificial air “cold”. They say her ancestors are Libyan wild cats – living in the hot desert, they cannot stay in a cold place?
Rainy season looks ended. Weather information said that it delayed one day compared to normal, while 16 days later than last year. Hard time started for Japanese dance lessons.
We visited Shikoku from 19th to 21st: stayed at Dogo Onsen hot spring in Matsuyama City on 19, while at Katsurahama beach in Kochi City on 20. Please click respective sightseeing links below for details.
Kochi City including Katsurahama beach:
A little bat(!) was found flying around our living room at midnight. When and how did it come in? Mei-Shun tried hard to catch & release it. Mikan-chan was so frightened that she stayed under the table during her mom’s hunting. Could you please stay outdoors, wild lives?
