Y (Kuma's owner)

Do you have any pets? I have three cats and each of them have different personalities, just as we do. One of the three cats is a senior ginger cat named Mittan. Usually, ginger cats are male because of some reasons related to DNA (I forget exactly), but Mittan is a female cat.

Having cats at home is fun; they make me laugh, relax, and sometimes they make me feel displeasure at making a mess but they are worth all the hardships. Oh, I forgot to say the other important thing caused by cats. It's astonishment.

If you have a cat, you might know how they act. Their ancestors were nocturnal and they still have the habit of being active at night. So does Mittan. She walks around the house and looks for small lizards and insects during the night. I think she catches cockroaches too. I sometimes see cockroach's legs on the floor, only the legs. No wonder I haven't seen many cockroaches in my house. One day, I mentioned to the vet that Mittan might have eaten cockroaches and I was worried that she might get a disease. The vet said to me if a cat that is a healthy adult, it shouldn't be a problem. What a surprise!

Finding cockroaches' legs is not such a big surprise for me, there's more. One night, I was awoken by a squeaking sound, which sounded as though someone was opening a sliding door. The noise was coming from inside of the room where I was sleeping. I thought it might have been a burglar, and I slowly opened my eyes but I couldn't see anything. Then I heard the noise that was similar to something scratching. It sounded familiar.

"Wait, I have heard the same noise. I know this noise!"

I jumped out of bed and I was right! I saw Mittan trying to open the sliding door of the built in closet.

One night before Christmas, I heard a strange noise like something light was rolling across the floor. I could hear that strange sound but nothing else. I didn't want to get up but I had to check what it was. Then I saw that it was Mittan again. She was chasing a Christmas Tree ball excitedly across the living room.

I'm not sure how many times has she has surprised me.

Thank you, Mittan. You stimulate me everyday.
