Slender Summer

Standard

Meow, my day has come again. I need mom’s attendance to eat enough crisps, or have to cry out for jelly sticks all the time. Torrid summer abruptly arrived last week while 大暑=taisho, the 6th and last of summer 二十四節気 today, made us feel tired. Mom’s condition clearly affects me: when it is not good, she cannot take good cares of washing my bowl, restroom cleaning, brushing and talking to me in soft voice.

Meow Meal

Standard

Mom gives my favorite jelly on a tiny bowl these days. Since she squeezes sticks little by little, I cannot wait but bite a cut to gain more. “Oh, stop it, it is dangerous” was her usual comment, worried if a piece of case comes into my body via mouth. It is not so bad to get on her legs and lick it, purr. I also like her touch on my coat. By the way, rainy season seems to be over today in Kanto area.

Browned Bowl

Standard

Meow, mom was shocked after breakfast when no water came from taps. I heard doorbell on the wall rang minutes before, yet she had to ignore it involved in teeth brushing. It was something related to water supply, wasn’t it? She rushed to the western window, found an elder couple who were honest enough to have informed her on their job — exchange of our water meter.

Couch Cracker

Standard

Although it is forbidden for Mikan-chan to get on a dining table, she seems to have her reason to do so. It often happens when Mei-Shun indulges in staple food made of flour, not of rice. She heard crispy cat food tastes like biscuit with no sweetener. Her fluffy daughter therefore might ask mom to share a meal time. Well, thanks and sorry, darling. Mom would stop eating on DVD of an amazing 20-year-old anime, turn to Ms. Piano for practice.

Sweet Scent

Standard

Mom, what are you eating? I like it as well, let me join you. However, climbing toward  dining table seems strictly forbidden for me. If I try three times, she puts me into bed cage. My cry never works to her who moves to another room with a food plate. After around an hour, she returns and allows me to get up saying “honey, your paws go into the rest room. Please do not mix them with dad’s meal”.

Slim & Strong

Standard

Meow, my day has come. Mom seems quite happier these days, partly because my eyes stopped shedding tears — she used to wipe them out blackened and dry along nose almost every day. Yes, since tasty jelly joined my menu, I feel better. Dad is also pleased, wants me to get a bit plump. “In order to survive if you have any appetite-stealing  disease,” he says. Well, do you kind followers agree with him?

Tasty Treat

Standard

Meow, my eating habit changed a little. Crisps and stewed meat had been regular menu, the former served anytime while the latter twice or three times a day. Jelly sticks, the best have joined them recently — or precisely last month. Mom gave me only 1 first, followed by 2 next week to final 3 as today, purr. Just one problem is that I say “Beow” instead of normal sweet voice when she prepares them.

Merry May

Standard

Meow, lunar month titled above starts from today. Mom walked to the nearest shrine in the morning, gave an earnest prayer to protect us all. She seems to recover from sore caused by an accident last week, visited a horsey riding club again yesterday. Coming home to get on a scale, she looked pleased so much. Purr, good of you. Please share smile with me serving the 3rd and last jelly stick.

Dual Dish

Standard

Meow, following are my friends toward delicacy. Mom serves me stewed meat in bigger one while jelly in smaller other. She has used the former only, yet worried about a kind of noise I make in full mouth. Since her Ame-chan has gone caused by teeth grinding, she is scared of my losing any. From a few days before, she holds a stick to let me lick it little by little, putting above latter on her legs to receive drops.

Moonlight Meow

Standard

Purr, it tastes very good. I mean jelly sticks whose chicken flavor joined tuna. Mom, mom, please give me more. “Only 3 per day, honey” is her reply. She wants me to eat a bowl of crisps with white powder spread on as well. It works well to my digestive system, like her own daily medicine including Chinese ones prescribed by home doctors. I see, looking forward the nightcap.
