As written in “About”, I’ve got a ferret and a cat. Good companions for a person who works at home. About ferrets it’s over 10 years history of having ones, regarding cats, since I was an elementary school kid.
Many stray cats came and stayed with us somehow, and among them now we have Me-ke (means three colours). Very typical Japanese name for cats. Because many customers visiting my parents’ shop say “Oh, you are Me-ke chan!”. So she finally thought she was Me-ke herself.
Recent shot of her. At least 19 yo, perhaps over 90 yo if she was a human. She doesn’t need remaining food in the dish anymore (typical for cats).
When she wants food (Japanese cats love fish, and she prefers certain
blandbrand of canned tuna only), silently sits in front of her dish in presence of somebody. Sometimes, she urges me saying meow.
And my ferrets. I had 5 so far, and one of them I could not care because I passed him to ex-husband. After I came back to Toyama, had 3 in all. Only 1 is still alive. Her name is Nana, girls’ name here and also means “seven”. Some people who are the fan of Japanese manga might remember that there is a piece called “Nana”.
It’s very difficult to take photos of ferrets. They move so fast. Considering of buying an out-of-date digital single-lens reflex camera, but might be I could get a coupon for updating my outdated smartphone, maybe situation would be better, so I hope.
