Niko's 7th Anniversary

On February 28th, we celebrated
Niko's 7th Gotcha Day.

He was a very sweet, gentle kitten.

He was also shy and reserved --- Kind of
a boy who sit back and watched others play.

Or like other kids didn't even
notice he was there.

Or always got picked on by bigger kids.

But not at the snack time.
Love of chicken made Niko bold & strong!

And that hasn't changed :-)

Niko is our sweet & gentle boy.
Shy but not so shy around chicken :-)

Happy Anniversary, sweetheart!

Cutie-pie kitten Niko

Isn't he even cuter now?

Heart Chicken

I saw this recipe online.

Then I catified it.

I made a special snack for Goro & Niko.
And I put a lot of love in it!

Do you see chicken kinda shaped heart?
This happens when you add love to a recipe :-)

My forever love



By the way, when it comes to
love for chicken...

Niko is all about sharing :-)

We wish you a happy Valentine's week!

A few weeks ago, I found Niko limping.
Something was wrong with his right rear leg.

So I freaked out and Niko was taken to the Vet.
Diagnosis was: Pulled Muscle

Earlier, kids were running like a storm. Niko
may have accidentally overstretched his leg.

But nothing too serious. Vet said
"Rest and he should get better soon." Phew!

So at home, we tried to make Niko
as comfy & happy as possible.

* Easy access resting spots *
We laid mats and towels on the floor.

Though, he spent 1st few days mostly in a cave.
(which was natural as he was unwell)

Goro came to check on Niko :-)

* Easy access litter box *
We placed a shallow litter box.

Well, Goro was the one who used it... :-)

* Comfort food *
I made chicken soup for snack.

Please get well soon, Niko.

I'm happy to report Niko's leg has healed.
He is now running and jumping!

We wish you a safe & fun new week!

Lovely Gifts

It's our 1st post of 2017.
Happy New Year!

We finally get to use this beautiful 2017
calendar created by our friend Miyako-san

Love her sweet design! Thank you,
Miyako-san, for this very special gift!

We also wanna thank Mr. Clooney, Neytiri, &
their Mom from Clooney's Num-Num Fund.

Look what we got!

Loving the Matryoshka Doll. There is a kitty
in a kitty in a kitty in a kitty :-)

Goro, no!

Goro loved dolls little too much :-)

Sorry we haven't been visiting you much
lately. Crazy busy at work! Things are
getting back to normal, though...I think :-)

We wish you all a happy New Year!

Light the Tree

Last year, we had this tower.
Only place where Christmas tree could
sit safely from Goro.

Based on experience, dear.

This year, though, tower was replaced by
a cabinet - with full access to the top.

Now the question:
Where do we put the tree?

We came up with this solution.

It's really to keep YOU safe, Goro :-)

We hope everyone enjoyed
fun & safe Christmas!



Goro & Niko

Let there be a light wherever you are!

"Kotatsu" is a heating appliance
widely used in Japan.

We got one for this winter.

First thing first.
We Goro-proofed its electric cord.

Now it's safe to use!

Oh, Goro. Not that we don't trust you.
We KNOW you'd destroy it :-)

By the way, Kotatsu is very popular
among kitties in Japan.

Goro is no exception!

Soon he brought his favorite toys in.
(Goro loves to carry them around.)

Even when heat is not on...

By the way, Niko hasn't used Kotatsu yet.

...Hopefully, he will some day!

We hope everyone stays nice and comfy.
Have a happy new week!
