Ms. Little Typhoon Part 2 / 台風ガールこかげちゃん Part 2


Now 12 days has passed since Kokage (aka Iggy) has moved…


やりたい放題の国のお姫様になっている(?)様子が目に浮かび、ひとりでニヤニヤしていましたw 出会いに改めて感謝する瞬間ですね!

Reading the email from Kokage’s new mom, I decided to change the title of this post. Our little princess is now turned into “free-for-all” or “born to be wild” character!

Many thanks for welcoming her!!!


Kokage is fitting into our house/family so rapidly. 
The very first night I put into a cage for quarantine but next morning she won the freedom. One night stay was the max for her. 


Receiving the hot hiss from the elders, she was going her own way. Nothing stopped her, even the hot hiss could not! 

Our other members (elder cats) looked like…

“ need to teach who we are but… playing with her will be a lots of fun…” our 3 years old girl was suffering from that dilemma and started to play with Kokage.


Fussy 9 years old girl was still hissing but she was given a role as a nanny. Started to sleep with Kokage and some times the little one snuggled her nose to the elder’s breast. 9 years old girl sometimes became a new mom! Still keep on hissing she also agreed to take Kokage on her side.


Above happened from day four or five and now 3 years old girl, 11 years old boy and Kokage are playing like a tumbling weed.




She loves to eat, does nice poops and running around like a lacing machine.

Loves to play with toys, carrying a ball from room to room and enjoying the day.

But the toy she loves seems to be that pink coil one. She looses so often and comes to me saying “my coil toy tumbled in their… would you help me?” So sweet to see her telling me that.


Attached please find som photos of hers. One is her sitting on my husband’s tummy. She just got there when he was having a nap.


She is glowing very healthy everyday. And easily fall in a sleep with a big purrrrrr when ever I pick her up. Having her as a mew member, we humans and our elder cats are having a very thrilling and fun life.

11歳になっている子まで、子猫と一緒に遊んでいることには、びっくりしました。わが家の10歳超えの子達は、ご隠居さんの様な生活パターンなのに、これは凄い!9歳の気むずかしいマダムまで、手なずけて(?)しまうとは。やっぱり、こかげちゃん、どっか不思議な子なのかもしれません... 唯一の女の子だからだったのかもしれませんが、わが家にいた時も、もの凄く気持ちを惹かれる子でしたから。特別何か要求をしてくるとか、猫一倍わがままとか、そういうのでは無く、存在自体がなんと言えば良いのか輝きを放っていた感じです。

To me it was a quite big surprise to hear that 11 years old cat playing with 4 months old kitten. Our cats whom are same age doesn’t. It’s a wow thing to me! And also melted 9 years old fussy madam’s heart and asked her to be her own nanny… she must have some kind of talent or charm… and so this is Kokage (aka Iggy)!

「もし、イギーを迎えたいと思う方がいらしたら、是非彼女を口説きにいらしてください! 我こそは!と言うツワモノ様、お待ちしております!」
10月10日にアップした記事に書きましたが、彼女のハートを射止めるのは中々手強そうでしたw あの記事からそんなに時間が経たずに出会いが実現しました。(正直、縁がないままわが家にい続けるのではと思っていたぐらいです)
母猫のアイリス、こかげちゃんに何を教えたのでしょうか? 一度聞いてみたいものですw 不思議な魅力120%のこかげちゃん、どんなレディに育っていくのかこれから楽しみです。

I really wonder what did Iris taught to her only daughter. Did she taught some secret spells how to attract others? Well this must be the secret that only they can share. I was thinking that she may never find her loving home. If she can’t it means she is meant to stay with USA during that should be fun. But now I think she knew when and where it will happen. Yes she found the best!  Now I just hope her sweet character to last forever!


To F’s , thank you for welcoming this little typhoon girl. She may become hurricane in the future but sure to bring the sunlight into your house also.
