please don't go!

Mr. J! Pleeeese don't go!

As Mochi loves Mr. J, she cries like crazy when he goes to work or even when he's taking a shower!

a visit to in-laws

One of the reasons we went a bit overboard on buying new toys was that Mochi had a first mini road trip to see Mr. J's parents and she was a bit stressed out. She didn't come out from under the bed for a while and didn't meet them until last minute.

She does look a bit nervous, doesn't she?

But she loved their big house and especially a patio with screened walls - as if she were outside!

one spoiled cat

Mochi is a one spoiled cat:)

toy #1
toy #2
toy #3
toy #4
toy #5
Of course she likes a piece of string/yarn and a crumpled piece of paper as much as these fancier toys:)

apparently Mochi loves crochet blankets.
sorry Mochi but that's Mr. J's grandma made for him (well actually it was for his brother but we were able to get it:))
And that is the one I made for Mr. J!

So I've decided to make one for Mochi.
Mochi couldn't wait and kept interrupting me.

well I hope she likes it:)

favorite places to sleep

Mochi's favorite places to sleep

she steals Mr. J's cozy chair...

or my computer

to sleep.

Sometimes she hides under the sofa and falls asleep.

But this is perhaps the best spot:)

Ooops, I got caught snooping around Jun's stuff! Isn't that yarn in the bag?

Introducing Mochi

Mochi came to our home on March 27 2011. She looked nervous in this very first photo but she's now very relaxed and having fun with us:) We first wanted to call her "Momo" ("peach" in Japanese) but since it sounded like "no no!" we decided instead on Mochi.

3月27日に我が家の仲間入りしたモチをご紹介します。 写真では家に到着したばかりで緊張した様子が見えるけど、今ではすっかりリラックスして楽しんでいるようです。最初は「モモ」と名付けようと思ったんだけど、英語で"no no!"と言っているように聞こえそうなので、代わりに「モチ」にしました。よろしくお願いします♪
