The Neko-Sanctuary Chronicle 2015 April 4:Miiko is tough

Since she was originally domesticated cat, Miiko  is not so much scared of people.
Though it is also a little cold, she doesn’t care.
Because she is still young.

So, Miiko is sitting in the place of bicycle storage where she is well seen by passengers.
I guess she thinks whenever she would meet a passing human who gives her delicious food.

Brazen, even being said, I like tough Miiko.
Though it rains or snows, I don’t need to worry about her because she is tough.

I also want to be tough as her.

The Neko-Sanctuary Chronicle 2015 April 3:A little girl

It was last Sunday. When as always in the back gate of the elementary school I sat having Tommy on my lap, a girl,  wearing a red helmet and pink T-shirt, about ten-year-old, appeared riding a bicycle in vigorous.

She looked at Tommy, and said that he was so cute.
“May I touch him?"
I answered "I think he would scare if you do because he is not familiar with you.”
She said "bad luck".

Still looking at Tommy for a while, she said "It would have been hard for owners grow him up here", like she were an adult.

I said "Tommy was brought up himself", but she didn’t seem what it meant.
"This cat lives in around here," I explained, but still she had a dubious face.

Also, after looking at Tommy about 5 minutes, and said "goodbye", went away dashing bike.
Meanwhile, Tommy is quietly sitting on my side, and had been patiently listening to our conversation.

Cute Tommy

The Neko-Sanctuary Chronicle 2015 April 2:After the rain

It was raining a little this morning.
It stopped  raining in the afternoon, but the thick clouds were covering the sky, sunlight could not be expected.

In the evening I went to feed the cats at the Neko-Sanctuary, Shiro and Daikoku-Maru came to me in a hurry. Miiko also came. Kai came in way back.

Since the rain was followed by probably the day, some days the cats couldn’t come to eat here. I I haven’t met Shiro and Daikoku-Maru nearly three weeks.

After eating, Shiro remained for a while, stared at me, or towards the back, I took a photo.
His face looked calm and with compassion deeply, it seems God's face.

The back gate, I met Tommy. I noticed that his fur on back was reddish than earlier.
I wonder how old is he now.

The Neko-Sanctuary Chronicle 2015 April 1:Botchan again

Last Sunday, I met Botchan at the bicycle parking lot.

Since it was just feeding time, he ate food with Miiko and Kai.
He was skinny as a bone. I wonder he was struggling with mating season.
Since the last time I met him was January 11, it's the first time in about three months.

When I talked to M-san about Botchan, she knew him well.
He lives in the vicinity of the park near the apartment where M-san lives.

That same Sunday, I met Sambo and a novice tortoiseshell.
I have seen her since January this year.
Sambo and she was walking together. Sambo is larger, he is no longer a kitten.
