Natalie, Rosie, and Monster Boy


Here's Natalie, a Fukushima kitten who went for her spay last weekend and is now in foster in Tokyo.
She's a 三毛猫、or a calico, and I think she looks like my favorite of these rings, that the lovely and talented JB made and donated in time for our event last weekend.
We sold some at the event, and the rest are up for grabs. If you want one, send me an email or leave a comment telling me which one and I'll send you the non-profit's paypal address. $12, postpaid to anywhere.
They're adjustable!
Another friend who came down to the metro with me was Rosie, a sweet girl found in Minami Soma at the end of 2011. She was bitterly hard to catch, skittish and nervous in the cutting cold.
Now she's a sweet happy mincing thing, up for snuggles and walks and of course, snacks
Last night I had the pleasure of snuggling with this little one. He had cried and whined the whole night before, and kept people in three adjacent rooms up. 
I decided to try him in my room, to let the poor guy who put up with him the first night get some sleep. I put him in a crate right next to my futon.
The little monster child wasn't content though. He cried and whined and squealed. I really didn't want him to poop or pee in my sleeping area. 
Finally I took him out and let him in the futon with me. The monster baby stopped crying and became a snugglebug. And he didn't toilet all night long, until I took him down to the pet sheeted area!
He's available for adoption.
Monster Boy still doesn't have a name. I'm trying to think of something fitting. First I was calling him Nakiko (crybaby), but it turns out he's a boy, not a girl. I thought about Max, after Where the Wild Things Are, but we've already had a Maxwell and a Maxine. I'm interested in names for little boys who are also monsters. Any ideas?
Thanks this week go to JB, who made the beautiful rings, and Rosanna, who sent me a donation. Your donations helped to pay for Natalie's spay, Rosie's rescue, and Monster Boy's presence in my futon! Thank you!


  1. He's lovely and sounds like he just wanted some snuggles to get to sleep. I'm like that sometimes :)
    Shou's a monster. You could name him that.

  2. Me too, GW!
    Shou's a monster who is also often sweet! What 字 do you use for his name?

    BTW, the purple-eared ring the bottom middle has been spoken for!
