Spa Day...Not



Last Wednesday...



Goro, don't worry. It's not for you.

And that means Niko is going...


It was a day for
Niko's semi-annual vet visit.

* Spa towel = Towel scented with Feliway

Physical exam went smoothly.


Niko got good results. Yay!


*

On another note, we were a very lucky winner
of great giveaway by 15 AND MEOWING!


Niko rolled in while I was shooting toys :-)


Thank you, Phoebe & Ellen,
for FUN-tastic toys!

We wish you all a happy new week!

Remembering Kit



Kit was a kitten whose precious life
we could not save. August 20th marked
one year since his passing.

It was also the day we decided to adopt him.

Kit was very weak. He didn't meow even
once. But I remember his purring. It was very
brief but so sweet. I embrace that moment, and
appreciate every minute we spent together.

Today's Dessert



I did some baking for Goro & Niko
this weekend.

As usual, Goro helped me.


He is an enthusiastic assistant.


Um, that's enough, Goro.
Did you like it?

You have chicken on your nose :-)

Today's dessert for Goro & Niko:
Chicken & cheddar cheesecake


Happy tummy. Happy kids.

We wish you a happy new week!

Chillaxing Spot



On a bed in Cat's Room (also known
as guest bedroom,) I've created
various chillaxing spots for Goro & Niko.


But of course, Goro has to pick
an empty surface.


Look, he clearly pushed aside
mat and rug in order to make room.


Oh well, I'm happy as long as
kids are happy :-)

We hope you had a chillaxing weekend!

Good Weekend




Hello, everyone!
We hope you had a good weekend.

We started our weekend with
a nice cool morning.


Did some vacuuming with Goro.


Lunch break.
I had a bagel and sunny-side up egg.


...along with tummy-side up cat :-)


Then we napped.


And napped.


And napped some more.


Yep, it was a pretty good weekend :-)

Furry Muffin



I often call Niko "Muffin" because
he is so cute, sweet, & charming.


And so...round :-)


Yep, he is fat!


Kidding, Niko! You are just fluffy.
I adore your round face :-)


Happy Niko muffin loves making biscuit.


Double muffin


Fighting muffin


Basket of Niko muffin


If I call Goro in dessert term, he'd be
a blueberry mousse cake decorated with
whipped cream and blueberries.


Because he is smooth, sleek, and silky.


With his tummy soft and creamy.
He is sweet, refreshing, and oh, so savory...


***

I've been busy with various things,
but we are all doing well.

Have a happy new week, everyone!

Bird House



One afternoon, Goro & I went out on the
deck and found something rather unusual.



There were pine needles, twigs,
etc. scattered on the floor.


And we found this!


Well, birds picked a convenient location.
Right in front of the restaurant.


However, it couldn't be worse because...


It's right inside the catio!
(What are they thinking?)


No, no, Goro. Let's go inside.
You can't play with it.


That's a bird nest.
Mama bird is going to lay eggs there.


Not a good idea, Goro.

I had to remove the nest before birds
moved in. Removing active nest is unsafe
for babies (plus I've learned it's illegal!)


We felt bad so we got this bird house.


Then set it near where
the nest was being built.


And a few days later...


Potential resident!


Maybe some day, we'll see bird babies
coming out of the house.

I sure look forward to meeting them :-)


Not "eating." Goro. I said "meeting."


***

We are new to bird housing. After reading more
about it, I learned it wasn't really a good location.
(Near door, not in shade, etc.) We may move it to
somewhere else if the house doesn't "sell." Either
way, I hope it gives bird family a good home :-)
