Let Me Out, Please!

I am Uh, living on the porch.
Neko Obasan has brought me inside the room, but I want to go out now, because a lot of cats are living here, who are staring at me. Posted by Picasa

My First Experience Of Hiza-Neko

I’m Umetaro.

Have you had Hiza-Neko?
It means that a cat is sitting on human’s lap.
Do-Hiza-Neko is popular among cats living closely with humans in Japan, I heard.

Today, I have a first experience of Hiza-Neko!
It is very comfortable especially in cold season, I think. Posted by Picasa

Peter, Are You Hissing?

Momo In A Drying Room

I love to get into a small space.
Cardboard Boxes, closet, baskets, and drawers where warm sweaters sleep.

But this is the my best favorite space! Posted by Picasa

Momo’s Toy Box

This is my toy box.
There are strings and several stuffed animals, which are pig, bear, penguin, horse, cat and mouse in the box.

When I was baby, I had a scuffle with the penguin. He was tough!
The pink pig is Tenko’s hand-me-downs.

As I get boring, I take one of them from the box and play with it yet now. Posted by Picasa

Marie, Her Say

Oh, dear! How thoughtless cat Yuki is!

Recently I have tried not to chase her.
Far from it, I have been trying not to show her myself.
She has been speaking ill of me yet… Posted by Picasa

My Dining Room

I have been living on a shopping street since I was born.

I have a lot of patrons who give me a various food.
They are cooks of Japanese, Chinese, French, Italian, and other country’s restaurants.
Sometimes labors when they are building something.

But my main dining room is here, in a very small lane.
There are always plates full of dried cat food and water for me.

City cat talks, whose name I don’t know. Posted by Picasa

Who Are You?

“Who are you? Where are you from?”, Momo said.
“I have no name telling you. I am from anywhere.”
