My Day

Standard

Meow, it’s begun to rain much earlier than weather forecasts. Mom told me so when she brought the laundry indoors. Don’t mind, they’ll be dried immediately thanks to Mr. Blue working hard today. You are just expected to hold me on legs until I fall asleep again … … oh? You smell a bit like Tora-chan. What, she was found sitting in front of our door, hiss! Your effort to let her out is highly appreciated. Purr … purrr …

Welcome Back

Standard

It stopped raining by noon. Dad’s three-night business trip to Shanghai ended, he gave mom a phone call from Narita Airport. She smiles like gentle sunlight coming through thin clouds, purr. They enjoyed tea time on a cup of coffee and … meow? Are you going out again, daddy? Such a hard worker needs to charge himself with our love and hospitality at home.

Even Delayed

Standard

Purr, you are allowed to see la maja in a silver coat. I am not brushed by Master F. J. Goya but by mom. Her favorite weather forecaster said yesterday would be one-day spring. Well, did she mean a storm? It rained hard with blue sky just a moment in the afternoon. And at midnight, roaring wind shook us like a typhoon. Meow, she apologizes for the error on TV. No problem it makes.

Meow, a happy new year. Mom told me that 2020 sounds like my voice, while I think Japanese has to wait 3030 (pronounced meow-meow). Here our day is set on coming February 22nd with three 2s, dog’s day on November 1st with three 1s (wow-wow-wow). Mom said 11th is better, yet four 1s do not look suitable to me without 22nd month on the solar calendar.

Bye and Hi

Standard

Meow, Mr. Aladdin went into a long sleep, left us to be replaced by Mr. Blue. His name comes from color of flame, not from his chocolate brown body. He is a bit smaller than the former who was purchased via internet by dad only, because mom stayed in a hospital. This time they went to a household appliances store together. He is cute, quiet and powerful. Purr … purrr …

Fluffy Friends

Standard

Hi, do you reside here? Where is your partner or child today? This is the second time Mei-Shun see him/her and looking-like another on the way to the nearest shrine. His/her elegant beige coat, beady eyes and round smile was so attractive that she could not stop taking a photo. Thanks a lot for your good posing. And you as well, Tora-chan, just before rushing towards this photographer or a close friend outdoors.

Never Welcome

Standard

Mei-Shun heard an interloper call her when she was involved in picking up gingko leaves on balcony floor. Hey, Tora-chan, what are you doing there? You remember that she told you over and over NOT to enter Mikan-chan’s territory, don’t you? It includes this outdoor space surrounded by a fence. Shin and Mei-Shun quite like you staying downstairs. Please keep a good girl.
