Day of Mikan-chan

Standard

Dearest sweetheart, please let Mei-Shun and Shin express their best appreciation to you; meow, meow, meow. Your beauty, equanimity and health make their lives glisten. How romantic it is to see with you a lot of white feathers falling from silver sky! It reminds you of the first rain you gazed through the same window 15 years ago, doesn’t it? Oh, you prefer facing Mr. Aladdin.

Tabby Couple

Standard

Our horseback riding club keeps three cats as well, called Karin, Collin and Pudding. Here is tabby boy Karin-chan followed by a black girl and another with black patches on white coat. The only boy knows well who would give him a treat, comes to Mei-Shun when he wants some. And please, kind follwers and cat fanciers find how he and Tora-chan look like with each other.

Who Are U?

Standard

Since it started to rain on Thursday, mom had to cancel all lessons. She instead visited stalls of Vanilla-san and Madoka-chan. I heard the former is a nice guy, yet who is here? Good patience will be rewarded by brown sugar or carrot, which I never want. Mine is meat stew packed in retort pouches. I always sit down at an empty dish calmly, wait for mom to recognize my sight. Then a gentle meow would just work.

Keep Practice

Standard

Mom tried to dance 京鹿子娘道成寺 the other day, looked feeling awful and shocked. Meow, that is because you neglected in it for a long time. Since lunar December starts from today, my advice is to walk to the nearest shrine to pray for Gods’ protection on your progress in Japanese dance. Have you already, before raining? And you know what to do next. Purr, well done.

Dance Again

Standard

Purr, it is so nice to take a nap on this sofa where mom reads with me on her legs. Her current book is written by 坂東三津五郎, Bando Mitsugoro X, late kabuki actor and head of 坂東流 Japanese dance. He was famous as one of the greatest dancers. Regarding a dancer, Master Mei-Shu replied in new-year card by her real name, never mentioned her job.

Teddy Body

Standard

Purr, I like mom’s new jacket. She has another one in ivory white, shorter sleeves. And much smaller, I’m not interested in sleeping under it. Meow, I must watch her not to go out leaving me alone. Since yesterday was one of her busiest, I kept a good girl as a help. Didn’t I, mom? If you think so, treat me as much as possible please. Let me take a nap in this until you do the same later with me. Purr … purrr …

Popping Paws

Standard

Meow, it is really nice to warm myself in sunshine. I make it a rule to lie on my legs first, then get a supine position. Dad uses this sofa before dawn, sitting asleep a minute. After he leaves to take a bath, mom sits down to hold me. Purr, it is one of the happiest habits for both of us. Now, it sounds he comes up. Please go ahead for breakfast. I’ll take a nap under your kimono coat. Purr … purrr …
