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.

My Day

Standard

It is today again, purr. Mom went out in the morning, returned in a minute. She told me rain started to fall, prevented her from walking to the nearest shrine. Meow, it means you should stay home all day with me. You have a lot to do when a new week begins, especially on PC closed yesterday, don’t you? Oh, it was 夏至=geshi, the 4th of summer 二十四節気 with the longest daytime, yet almost in vain.

My claws on bear …

Mom cut them.

Sleepy …

ZZZ …

Tough Tokyo

Standard

Mei-Shun changed today’s reservation at a hair saloon in 御徒町 for a cut, newly into one nearby 東京 station next week. The latter gave her a phone call to inform their suspension in April, yet returned to normal business 2 weeks after that state of emergency lifted. This is also the day her beloved father went on a long journey 11 years ago. She hopes to see him at mom’s home soon.

His favorite hydrangea in sky blue is missed as well.

 

Last Weekday

Standard

… of this month we have today. How was it for you kind followers? Mei-Shun feels it quite fine, which has become nice time to rethink about her life (slightly described here) with kabuki dance, Mikan-chan and Ms. Piano. Precisely, she is so much grateful to all of these loved ones: she experienced almost no stress under that stay-home campaign. Thanks to them and … her great sponsor Shin of course.

PM’s face masks were delivered to Shin’s office, not yet to home.

Knew It

Standard

Meow, my day of the month comes as usual, with longer time for dad working at home these days. Mom does not change so much from how she has been so far, wondering what would come next onto black-and-white keys of Ms. Piano. What, Spanish test expected to be held in June will be canceled, for the same reason why he prefers staying with us to going out? Please calm down. Lick, lick, purr …
