kuro.shiro.neko said...

yeah... i wish!

no lah, are you crazy? i already have six, my lap not big enough to accomodate another one, though i'm sure he can go into my shirt pocket or bra... hehe...

his name is brian, btw.

KXBC said...

He is cute.

Kawaii! How to describe this type of pattern on the body? They're quite rare.

kuro.shiro.neko said...

does it resemble a marble cake? i think this kid has american shorthair blood, perhaps it is commonly know as classic tabby or mackerel tabby pattern.

for me, i like to refer him as marble tabby :)

Brian is such a precious little thing!

What a grouchy little face to boot! :)

KXBC said...

Brian is a classic tabby. My KK has the same kind of twirls too. When they sit down and you look from their back, they resemble a water melon esp if they are fat like my KK. haha.... Brian does indeed look like a marble cake, but a chocolaate marble cake. Yummy.

Mackerel tabbies I think have thinner parallel stripes running down their sides. My BB is a mackerel tabby.

To be honest I still get mixed up about the different tabby patterns, but what kxbc wrote really hit home.

I'd always thought to myself that Teddy looks like a HUGEASS FREAK ORANGE WATERMELON from behind, when he sits down.

So when will you be going to Japan? So fun. Me slightly envious! Take me with you!

KNS, if only you had posted those tips last year before Mummy & Daddy went to Hokkaido. They could have saved some more money and used these savings to buy us more food. More food. More wet food. Yum yum....

Daddy wanted to buy a big authentic fa chai mao in Japan but it seems that Hokkaido has very few on sale. Don't know why also.

And Mummy & Daddy only saw a few stray mao mao there. The Japanese must be really nice to adopt those kitties off the streets.

wah, you bery lude lei... call me kns.. hee... how you know i full of shit ah..

anyway, as i found out later after i posted, these tips cant apply to everyone, esp those who are on a tour package. cos tour groups are just whisked to one place and another, before you can say gochisousamadeshita.

these tips really require tedious and careful planning, which unfortunately i also have problems with.

perhaps after my trip i can post better tips.

beware though, my trip will mostly be centered around cats and tikam. hee..

oh, and food of course :)

KXBC said...

Oh, so sorry about that typo. It should be ksn and not kns. I don’t mean it. Please accept my sincere apologies.

Mummy & Daddy also went F&E to Hokkaido and left the 5 of us at home with Mummy’s MIL. She’s not bad lah but she moves a little too slowly when we run circles around her.

Mummy & Daddy also enjoyed their trip very much and they say the food is fantastic. Daddy even let us smell his breath. So fishy, so yummy.

Meow, Kim Kim (a polite fat cat, hehehe)

kuro.shiro.neko said...

ok, you've got me, what's ksn? i only know kns.. hee..

KXBC said...

ksn is short for kuro.shiro.neko, no? You think "y" liao...hehehe.....

Meow, Kim Kim

If you are going Sapporo, there is this very nice and big pet shop (situated in a shopping centre) near the Sapporo Brewery. Oh, they have so many puppies and kittens for sale and they are very well taken care of. Clean ears, clean eyes and well groomed. All very alert and playful. Very unlike the pet shops in Singapore.

We even got to cuddle a pure breed Abyssinian though we don't speak Japanese and the shop assistant knows that we are not buying. It's so cute and reminds us of our Chang Chang. When we showed her CC's kitten pics (yes, we bring their photos when we go for long trips. Say awwww.....hahaha), the only word we understood was "kawaii".

When I get back to Singapore, will try to send you the name of the shopping centre.
