Saki-Matsuri

Standard

Meow, so they go around Kyoto streets under this wild sunlight today. Mom screams a little every time she sees weather forecasts these days. She makes it a rule to switch on living-room air conditioner at 10 : 00, open the shutter of dad’s study facing the east. Such a torrid summer is hard even for me who prefer natural hotness to artificially cooled room.

Teddy and Turtle

Standard

Meow, dad’s friend gave me this mini-cushion to relax on. Sniff, sniff, hum. Not so bad, yet he has a zipper on the back. If I curl on him as mom expects, something might be closed within. So he is yours, dad, why don’t you replace him with the towel turtle whom you hold on the sofa instead of me in summer? Mom saw the latter’s soul in 乙戸沼 the other day, finding him not a tortoise.

Wary Tail

Standard

Meow, it is my turn to chat on mom’s site. It stopped raining, allowed her to go out for communication with those nice-scent animals. I really love it on her legs, purr. We have 夏至 today to enjoy the longest daytime in an year. I’m not sure if we can see it because a seasonal rain front, who seems like the whimsical lady I know well, still stays active on the Pacific Ocean.

Garden Guide

Standard

Meow, here comes sister Mei-Shun, daughter-in-law of my friend mom and a generous treat giver. When she strolls around my place in the morning, I report to her what kind of flowers are in the best blossom. On the top of the list right now is this lace-cap hydrangea, her present to mom on Mother’s Day a few years ago. And a lady’s tresses follows, which she found in buds and rejoiced.

First Shampoo

Standard

I feel somehow uncomfortable in lower body from a few days before, have to rush into the restroom over and over. It is cool yet humid, makes mom switch on the air conditioner. I don’t like it, hiss! Let me relax at a warmer place, on your legs for example. However, she is too busy to stay here once the sun comes out among grey clouds. Meow, I … oops? What’s this foam over my coat?

Night Guard

Standard

Hi, Tora-chan, relaxing on a chair in a guestroom downstairs. Oh, sorry to interrupt you. A good girl never ignores her friends, full of hospitality. Mei-Shun just wanted to take your photo — looking elegant with a green stone on your neck. Mom-in-law allows you to stay indoors in daylight these days, while darkness keeps everyone including Dora-chan and Kuro-chan our garden cats.

Master Bach?

Standard

Since mom had a hair cut and curl last week, she has looked a little weird. I wondered why and knew the reason: her tresses are too tight. Meow, you burst into laughter at dresser mirror, saying the image is just like paintings on the wall of music classroom. That great composer in 18th century always puts on a wig full of horizontal curls, while whose scores are never seen on Ms. Piano.

I’m curled as well.
