When Goro was small, I found a bump
in the middle of his lower tummy.

Is this some kind of tumor? A bad one?
I got worried and asked our vet.

The vet said, "Oh, it's just a nipple."


Cats generally have 8 nipples.
In 2 rows; 4 nipples on each side of belly.

Clearly, Goro's nipples thought
it was a free seating.

Well, I'm happy as long as
Goro is happy and healthy :-)


In the deep ocean of fur, locating nipples is
very hard. They often go missing.

So I decided to create
a nipple distribution map.

Will update the map as I confirm
each location...

No, no.

It's for tracking purpose only :-)

Good Water Dish

One of Goro & Niko's water dishes
(Photo from long time ago)

Goro loves to bathe his toys

When it broke in 2012,
I got the same type of new dish.

Well, I ended up getting two, as the first
one I ordered was much smaller than I thought.
(This happens when you shop online.)

I like this type of water dish for 3 main reasons;

1. It comes with filter

2. Water bottle gives weight to the dish
(If dish is light, Goro bats it around and
spills water everywhere)

3. Water stays still
(Niko doesn't drink flowing water)

Well, water does flow when dispensed from
bottle into the dish, making bubbles...

Niko battling against bubbling water :-)

This water dish has become quite old.
So recently, I decided to get a new one.

The dish I ordered turned out to be
much larger than I thought.

This happens when you shop online...

Cat Shelf 3

On the ground floor, we have a room
used for office/storage/workout.

This is a kitty walk built over a desk

I agree, Goro.

So off to the home improvement store.

We got the same shelves
as we used in cat shelf project #1.

But got different kind of fabric this time to make
non-slip surface: Carpet. We want to thank Layla
from Cat Wisdom 101 for her advice!

Supervisor Goro

Finally shelves are up. 
Goro wasted no time checking out.

He seems to like them :-)

As expected, Niko was hesitant at first.

But once he was up on the shelf,
Niko got confidence.

Confident Niko

Now the office/storage/workout room has
become office/storage/kids' playroom.

When Tummy Calls

Goro here.

He is exposing his gorgeous tummy.

And it's calling me.

So I was going to give a tummy rub, then...

Dear Goro. My heart (and hand) is broken
by your rejection (and severe bunny-kicking.)


I don't like "no touching" rule, but
I'm aware who is the boss.

Well, I'm not all deprived. Goro lets me
rub his tummy when he feels generous.

And a real chance comes when he is napping.

Tummy is calling me.
You know what to do.

But I didn't answer the call.

Can't disturb my baby's nap time :-)
