Happy Horsey

Standard

No exercise. No abdomen with good growling. It was Mei-Shun’s recent (正月)三が日=(shogatsu)-san-ga-nichi, first three days of a new year. That made her regain one sugar bag around the waist again. Mr. Tea Time, Princess Maria, how was your first weekend of 2021? You always bring an empty stomach which symbolizes her health. Please kindly continue to help her control both body and mind.

Thank Thee

Standard

Mei-Shun cordially means to you kind followers. She has never imagined to see such number, over 300 within this year. Although the slightest compared to famous others, she would love to continue on this little site. Mikan-chan, Ms. Piano and Masters Mei-Shu and Bando, please take her huge appreciation as well. She wishes you all a very Merry Christmas!

And to you Shin, of course.

Meow, it is the last of my days in this year, come once a month. Mom visited Master Bando for final lesson as well, left me alone at home. Well, that is all right. I am a good nurse, know well how to rectify myself … hi, mom, welcome back. Thanks for cleaning something I threw off onto the floor and restrooms. Lunch please, and bedtime on your legs follows. Purr … purrr …

Stay or Stray

Standard

Mei-Shun sees many baby geckos these days; their parents live outdoors, themselves indoors. So cute they are, so little that easy to be Mikan-chan’s target. When she meows weirdly, it means one has been locked on. If it is on the wall for example, it would be safer yet on the floor — fluffy honey, you do not need to hunt foods. Tora-chan did before to survive in the field.

My Day

Standard

Meow, we also have 秋分 or autumnal equinox, the 4th of 二十四節気 in current season today. Day and night will be the same in length, as my tail got a bit thinner on both side around the base. Mom, please do not worry too much. 2 weeks have already passed since you saw my home veterinarian Dr. O, who said no tick bit me perhaps. Just hold, stroke and brush me up as much as you can.

Mom’s Mine

Standard

Meow, it is a bit too cool for me these days. Mom said that rainfalls between 4 seasons in our country are all called 梅雨. The most famous one in June is simply named so, while current another 秋霖=shurin or ススキ梅雨=susuki, Japanese silver grass rain. She likes such shifts in an year, has to take good care of me as well. It means to hold me for at least 30 minutes a day. Purr …

Cat & Dog

Standard

Oh, Mikan-chan, you are so cute relaxing beside an open window. Such a figure reminds Mei-Shun of the German Shepherd boy her host family in U.K. kept decades before. He always accompanied them for a picnic, yet often got carsick. Coveting fresh air, he put his muzzle into a small, triangle slit to pull Mei-Shun’s backseat belt tightly. His name was … Trump.

Let’s Love

Standard

Meow, I need to relax on mom’s legs at least 15 minutes every day. She likes to watch weather forecasting TV on the sofa, so do I because it is the best chance. She calls me cute always, even when I simply drink water? Purr, thanks. “And you too, merely drinking tea”, dad told her. Purrr, thanks a lot on behalf of her, who knows well that he is the only one to give such a sweet comment.

New Rule

Standard

Mei-Shun decided to refrain from Ms. Piano after enjoying dance with horseies. Practice must be limited within 3 scores a day, 5 days a week at maximum to take more care of her friend hands. She stopped relaxing on a cushion to feed Mikan-chan, kneels down instead and stands up with both palms held ahead on the floor. Heavy items should be lifted by both hands, never with only one feeling lazy.
