3-eyed cat

Mikan did not agree to this


Mikan did not agree to being put in her carrier and taken to the vet for her yearly checkup! Her sister was not fond of the experience either. But they have both gotten a clean bill of health and are up to date with their vaccinations too.
For a long time, Mikan was small and slight, and at one time even underweight: we had to feed her extra to keep her going. Meanwhile, Yuzu basically inhales her food and she is strong and active. But we found out that now it is reversed: Mikan has become less active, and seems to be content sleeping on the couch most of the day, and that has resulted in her now actually being heavier than Yuzu! We have to be careful she doesn’t become too heavy either…

Friday Five

1. Where did you travel on your last vacation or other big trip?
That was our trip to Japan in March/April of last year. After some bad delays, we arrived at Tokyo, then rented a car and went to Enoshima, Hakone, Fuji, Kofu, Matsumoto, Takasaki, Kawagoe and then back to Tokyo.

2. What was the best trip you ever took? Where did you go, and with whom, and what made it so good?
Probably the trip to Kyuushu (yes, also Japan) in 2015. We saw a lot of beautiful things, but it was also very relaxed. And there were no crowds of (Chinese) tourists, which was a bit of a thing everywhere we went last year… We really slowed down and had the opportunity to experience many interesting cultural things.

3. Where do you dream of traveling on your next vacation when it’s safe to travel again?
It’s getting boring, but… Japan. There’s large parts that we haven’t seen yet, and I’d like to visit Kyoto again.

4. Where are you likely to actually travel to on your next vacation when it’s safe?
My sister is in the process of buying a vacation home some distance from where she lives (in Denmark). It might turn out that we spend a few days there?

5. Do you prefer to vacation to new places each time or to familiar places — or maybe you prefer to stay home?
I love being at home, but I also love experiencing new things! But I’m not really adventurous, and I like my creature comforts.
