2016-02-12 04:37   The story of Kuma 6 - Cat houses


I'm going to talk about the cat houses today. As I wrote in the previous journal, my family J loves woodworking. He made lots of furniture for us. People who have kept cats know that cats love to sit in boxes. J thought if he made a cat house I would love it, and I did!

Cat House

It's not fun if the box is shaped like an ordinary box. He designed cat's face shaped window and also it was used as an entrance. This cat house has long four legs and we could enjoy the view from it. At the back of the house, there was a small hole that put through an electric code of heater.

After he had made the first cat house, he decided to make another one. The second cat house didn't have legs, because it was going to be put on the catwalk. The second one was very special. The outline of the house was my face. The window was shaped like my muzzle, you see? J put it on the catwalk beside the window. The window faced south and it was very warm in winter. I used to enjoy taking a nap and watching cars and pedestrians from there.

Cat House

Sometimes, people who passed in front of my house spoke to me and said "Hello kitty!". I was an indoor cat, that's why this place was the only place where I could see outside people.

I'll talk about other cat furniture next time.

2016-02-08 04:58   The story of Kuma 5 - Cat trees


I think I have been writing about food a lot, so I'll change the topic today.

I would like to introduce the cat furniture I had. I had two cat trees, a catwalk, a cat tunnel and two cat houses. These pieces of furniture were all handmade by my family J. He loves woodwork, and of course loves cats.

He had made a big cat tree before I came his house. How well he made it!

The structure of the cat tree was in five stages. The top was an observation platform. It almost reached the ceiling. I have never reached the top because I was not good at climbing. On the second level, there was a small cabin. I used to sleep in there. It was nice and cozy. I liked sitting there holding my head out of the cabin and watching my family. There was a big room underneath the tree. My humans kept two carry bags there. It was totally like a building with the parking lot on the ground floor.

Another cat tree was small but useful. The height of the tree was just the same as the height of the window sill. I could do human and bird-watching from there. The post of the cat tree was not straight. J intentionally tilted it. I liked that idea because almost everything in the house stands straight. It was interesting to have one which did not stand at 90 degrees.

2016-02-04 03:22   The story of Kuma 4 - My favorite food


Our humans got used to taking care of me. Then, they knew my favorite brand of cat biscuits. It was very important because I was a gourmet cat.

They kept a stock of my favorite brand at any time. They believed that they themselves had chosen the brand, but I did. I tempted them to buy specific cat food without them noticing.


When I was served my favorite food, I ate it very quickly. Conversely, I ate very slowly when I had my least favorite food. I knew humans were watching me. Mostly, they bought cat food on the internet. My favorite brand was sold everywhere and they wouldn't miss it. When they saw my favorite, they recall the scenery where I was eating happily and quickly. Television commercials and the vet advice were also a big help. I was very impressed that people who work for advertising firms use words cleverly. The magic word was "healthy". They had a weakness for the word "healthy". My strategy has succeeded, but what should I do if I wanted to get the food that's not healthy?

As a matter of fact, the most favorite food of mine was bacon. Even just imagining, my mouth would be watered. What a mouth-watering food!

However, my humans didn't allow me to eat bacon. The reason was because bacon is too fatty and salty.

To get bacon was the most difficult operation because it was in the refrigerator. I told myself, the chance will come if I do not give it up.
