ということで、お次はまるさんの番ですよ!
ジャーっとシャワーをかけて濡れまるに。
The next is Maru’s turn!

まる:「今日がシャンプーの日だなんて聞いてませんよ。」
Maru:[Is it a day of the shampoo today? My plan did not have it.]
 まる:「ちょっとちょっと、これじゃあ実はスリムだって
バレちゃうじゃないですか! まるって名前なのに全然丸く
ないとか、いいんですか?」
Maru:[Wow, I became so slim. Though I have the name of the meaning to be round. ]

大丈夫です! 十分に丸いので。
Do not worry! You are round enough.

まるのシャンプーもあっという間に終了。
はい、お疲れさまでした。
His shampoo was over in no time.

まる:「実はガリガリだってバレてしまったんじゃ・・・?」
Maru:[I might have been found out that I am boney in fact.]

 

 

How's Hurley Huddleston?

Well, he's awesome!

I just got a note from Karin, his mama, and she reported things are going great for the little guy.  He became fast friends with his new brother Allen, and they're living a great life together.

From Karin:

They're sharing space and litter boxes, grooming each other, having both cuddly moments and rough-and-tumble play. Hurley has conquered the 3-level "condo," moving with ease between the basement and the upstairs loft. Allen alerted us that the kitten food is mislabeled; he says it should read "Brother and Baby Cat."




I love how quickly they bonded.  They do look so happy together, don't they?


Thanks so much for sharing a Hurley update and these sweet photos, Karin!  I'm so thrilled things are going so great!

暑かった5月某日。
抜け毛&フケがすごかったのでシャンプーをすることに。
今回ははなさんから!
On the fine day, I shampooed them.
It was Hana first.

はな:「何これぜんぜん納得いかないんだけど。」
Hana:[What is this? I cannot believe it!]


シャンプー自体は年に1回か2回ほどですが、はなも大分慣れた様子。
最初は大騒ぎだったのが、スピーディーにシャンプーしてしまえば、
特に騒ぐこともなく終了。
I wash them once or twice in a year.
Hana seemed to be used to shampoo a little.
She hardly made noise.

 

ただ、シャンプーが終わって写真を撮っていたら大きな声で怒られた。
However, she was angry when I took a photograph after shampoo.


はな:「呑気に撮ってんじゃないわよー!!」
Hana:[You should take me out early from here without taking a photograph!]


ということで、はい、お疲れさまでした。
Sorry! Let’s do towel dry.

 

Aww Heck, Not Yet!

 I popped into the Foster Room yesterday hoping to pick up a set of cuties to bring home. There were several sets of mamas with tiny babies and a few teen cats in need of some socialization, but no little orphan kittens for us.

Things have been pretty busy down there so I would be really surprised if our wait was long at all.

Should they arrive today or tomorrow (the shelter is closed Sunday and Monday) I'll pop over here and share a peek.  We'll blast in on the social media too, of course.

I know you're itchin' for kittens -- I'm sorry we'll be waiting just a wee bit longer!  Hopefully, just a day or so. Stay tuned!

まるの10歳の誕生日に、たくさんのお祝いメッセージをありがとうございました!
Thank you for many messages for Maru.

24日の夜はケーキでお祝い。
I celebrated his birthday with a cake on the night of 24th.

まる:「どうせ食べられませんよ。」
Maru:[But I cannot eat it.]


大丈夫です。
ちゃんとまる&はなのケーキも作りますから!
Don’t worry.
I cooked your cake!


ハートの形の馬肉とささみの二層仕立て、まるのお手手添えの
完成です!
This is heart-shaped cake of horseflesh and white meat.


大きいのでふたりで一緒に食べてくださいね。
As this cake is big, please eat together.

と言ったのに、まるはひとりでガツガツと食べ、はなは自分の
分がないとうろうろ探す。いつもはまるのお皿に顔を突っ込んで
食べているのに、最初から一緒のお皿という考えはないらしい。
However, she looked for her dish.

まる:「ガツガツガツガツ!」
はな:「あたしのないー!」
Hana:[Where is my dish?]


ということで、急きょ取り分け。
Here you are!

 

でも少なかったのであっという間に食べ終わり、まるが食べている
お皿に顔を突っ込むはな。
Hana finished eating it in no time and plunged her face into his plate.

はな:「いっただきー!」
Hana:[I help you!]

でも美味しい時のまるは、大きな頭できっちりガード。

まる:「もぐもぐもぐ。」
はな:「おっきな頭がじゃまー!」
Maru:[No, thank you.]

 

美味しかったようで、ふたりできれいに平らげました!

We're Home!

Our flight that was already a late one got delayed a bit thanks to some mechanical issues. Interstate traffic went down to one lane near  Tacoma and created a big slow-down right by our exit.  But finally,  at some point in the middle of the night, we did make it home from our travels.

Normally Wylla and Charlene are waiting at the door for us, but they were both sound asleep upstairs and didn't make their appearance until I was half way done sorting through a week's worth of mail.

When they finally came down,  both paused in the living room with a look that said "Is it you? Is it really you?" before they trotted over to greet us.

We scooped them up, gave lots of hugs, got lots of purrs, then put them down so they could inspect our luggage and shoes.

I quickly got ready for bed, then went upstairs and slipped under the covers. Bean soon joined me, then Wylla, then Craig, and the next thing I knew it was morning.  I woke up with Bean sound asleep on my back with her chin resting between my shoulders.  Wylla was at my side.  Usually, such close snuggles are reserved for colder nights.

I guess they missed us.


Now that we're back, we're ready to receive babies once again. As soon as I'm done returning some emails, making some calls, and catching up on a couple of things this morning, we'll check in with the Foster Department and see if there might be some cuties that need us!  I'll be sure to keep you posted!




A Little More Mimsey

Mimsey is such a love bug. She always welcomes any pets, scratches, or belly rubs and says "thanks" with a few squints.  She can't walk by without brushing up against you to say "hello."  She's highly huggable.

I'm not sure if she remembers her kitten days with us, or just remembers our recent visits, but it always seems that we feel familiar to Mimsey.

As always, we've enjoyed our time here, but we're ready to get home to see Wylla and Charlene. Even when I'm gone just a few days, I always miss my girls a ridiculous amount. I can't wait to get home and give them both a good squeeze!

とっ捕まったまる。
Maru was caught!


まだピカピカのカエルベッドと。
The frog bed is still clean.


急ごしらえのご飯台でご飯を食べているまる。
この頃から極度のダラダラ食い。
少し食べると近づいてきて、背中を撫でてもらってからまた
食べるという甘ったれ。
Maru is at table.
He was a spoilt child then.
When he ate, he let me stroke his back.

一番最初に買ったぬいぐるみのおもちゃ。
たしか犬用。
This is the stuffed toy which I bought for Maru for the first time.
This was sold at the toy corner for the dog.

Maru:[For the dog???]

ゴミ箱を荒らしているまる。
今思えば、荒らすというよりは、中に入りたかったのかも。
よく赤いごみ箱に入って、ころころと転がっていました。
Maru often scattered the trash box.
Possibly he might want to get into it.


生まれて初めてのシャンプー後。
ほっそり感はあまりない。
After the first shampoo.

まだテーブルの上が立ち入り禁止だった頃。
乗っているのが見つかって、逃げようとしているところ。
It was forbidden that Maru got on the table then.
As it was found that he was on it, he was going to escape.


チビまる:「やっべ!」
Maru:[I escape!]
そのうち「こらっ!」と怒られたら逃げるという遊びに変化。
わざと乗って、挑発するまる。

 
After that, he got on the table on purpose to provoke me.
When I said “Hey!”, he escaped in at full speed.
It was play for him.

まる:「乗ってますけど?」
Maru:[Look! I’m here!!]

 
やがて、強気に縄張りを主張し始めたまる。
Afterwards, he insisted that this was his territory.

チビまる:「ここはわたくしのテリトリーです。OK?」
Maru:[It is my territory here. Ok?]

 
最終的にはテーブル兼まるベッドに。
And the table became his bed.

まる:「ようやく勝ち取りました。」
Maru:[I finally gained this!]

遊んでいた洗濯ばさみが取れなくて困っているまる。
この頃からキッチン荒らしの常習犯で、
ラティスに貼ってあるテープは、一応まる避けのつもり。
効果はなし。
As Maru does not get a clothespin, he is in trouble.
As he damaged the kitchen frequently, I had to put the fence.


家にやってきて1か月頃のまる。
この時はまだ、ここまで箱が好きだとは知らなかったのですが、
証拠写真が残っていました!
1 month later.
He seemed to already like a box!

家に来て2週間後くらい。既に洗面所が好き。
朝、顔を洗おうと水を出すと飛び込んで来て水を飲むので、
毎朝家に居ながらにしてびしょ濡れに。
Two weeks later.
Maru already likes washstands.
He was wet through every day.


ただの天使。
Too pretty!

初めて家にやってきた日のまる。
生後4か月頃。
初めての家でも物怖じすることなくご飯を食べ、トイレに行き、
あとはひたすら走り回っていた日。
The day when Maru came over to my house for the first time.
He is four months after birth.
He was not afraid at all. He ran around overnight in excitement.

 

そして1週間後。
And one week later.

チビまる:「暑いのでエアコンよろしく。」
Maru:[As this house is too hot, please turn on an air-conditioner.]

すでに寛ぎ過ぎ。

10歳です!!

まーた性懲りもなく、休んでいるはなにちょっかいを出しにいくまる。
Maru made a pass at Hana who took a rest again.


まる:「へーい。」
Maru:[Hey!]

Hana:[Prepare!]


まる:「きゃー!」
Maru:[Noooooo!]

Look! It's Nigel and Mimsey!!

I'm at the folks' house for a couple of days and have been enjoying spending a little time with Mimsey and Nigel Frost.  They're happy cats, living the good life with my mom and dad.

Mimsey really does look exactly like a grown-up version of her kitten self. She still has the same boxy head and dense bunny fur. She's a love.

DSC_3443

Nigel is as handsome as ever. He's as floofy as ever, too.  He's the most curious of the pair and is always investing with his nose and trying to slip through doors into spaces he's not supposed to go in -- like the basement or garage.

DSC_3429

They both enjoy time with their feather wand, rolls with catnip bananas and birdwatching from their roosts in the enclosed porch.

They're such lovely cats and they continue to bring my parents joy each day!

はらはらドキドキ感を楽しんでいるのか、まるは良くここに乗る。
そして、慎重かつ大胆なウォーキングを披露する。
Maru likes walking here.
He walks carefully and boldly.


まる:「こっちは行けないんでした。」
Maru:[Unfortunately I can no longer advance.]

はなは通れるけど、まるは通れない。
でも行きたいらしく、いつも途中まで行って、バックで戻る。
Hana can walk there, but Maru cannot do it.


まる:「じゃじゃーん。こんなこともできますよ。」
Maru:[Look! I can also do this.]


まる:「楽勝楽勝♪」
Maru:[It’s easy!]
