Silver Stretch

Standard

Meow, mom left me alone in the morning for hair dyeing at a nearby salon. It abruptly rained hard, forced her to shut up all windows whose zips opened for good ventilation. Oh, you started an air conditioner in the living room, put on contact lenses like when going far out. Bedroom is also cooled and dried? Since your towel blanket got wet by southern wind.

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.

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.

Dad’s Departure

Standard

It was today of 12 years before. Mei-Shun phoned mother who sounds satisfied saying that her younger daughter never forgets this date. Well, she makes it a rule to listen only — no criticism, no opinion yet “yes” and “you are right”. It is all different from their usual conversation, let an almost-octogenarian continue to talk for an hour and a half. Dearest Daddy, is it correct?

More & More

Standard

Mei-Shun has become in hobby. She plays piano from 5 years old, had taken lessons till 18. Her university days were full of Shakespeare. After marriage and moving into Ibaraki, she found a photo of Master Mei-Shu in a stage costume on PC and was very much interested in kabuki dance. And it was Shin who recommended horsey riding 6 years before.

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.
