Hi Teaser Buddies!
Well, I didn’t really have many of you fooled this week when it came to WHO did our Guest Teaser did I ?? Anyone who has followed Michelle from My Three Moggies as she traveled throughout China and Japan knows there are some incredible sights to see and she captured a bunch of them for US ! We were so lucky she wanted to give all of us some extra fun with Teasers by snapping photos and doing Video Tell-Alls so you can see some of the places she’s been. She had a wonderful trip and is home now with Oscar, Archie and Henry who were VERY happy to have their Mum back home.
Now – ONWARD to Teaser Tell All…………….
TEASER #1 – Here’s the photo one last time:
What a lot of “CREATIVE” answers you gave me! There were a lot of people who recognized it though for just what it is a photo of……………….however I’ll let Michelle tell you in this video!
Here’s some detail on where Michelle is standing and what you’re seeing that she provided to us as well:
Here you have the tallest Japanese tower called Sky tower which will be
celebrating its first birthday in May. The building in the middle is the Asahi
building the famous beer from Japan hence the frothy head on the top :-). The
statue on right is meant to face up originally however due to earthquakes the
Japanese decided to upset the artist and put it on its side!
Teaser #2 – Here’s the photo one last time:
I got a few really INTERESTING answers on this one too (tee hee)……………but here’s Michelle’s video with the info on where she took this photo!
Isn’t that fun? There are a LOT of Cat Cafes in Japan …… Mom and I have seen a lot of them on the Japanese channel on the International TV station we get here and we think it’s so great that these places exist where people and cats can hang out together. Here’s some info I found on the Purina site about cat cafes!
The customers of cat cafés are often young working people who don’t have the time or the space for a cat, but who still want to experience the joy of interacting with pets. “This place isn’t on my way from work, but even if I’m pretty tired, I’d still stop by,” one cat café regular, Kazunori Hamanaka, told Reuters. “It is really soothing.” Many customers come often, and have favorite cats that they spend time with, almost like their own pets. Taking photos of the cats is a popular pastime, and several customers have devoted blogs just to their cat café photography collections.
Cat cafés in Tokyo charge between 1000 and 1200 yen (between about $13 and $15 dollars) an hour to spend time in the cat room. They often provide food and drink service, cameras, music, and even video games, though many customers simply bring books to read while they sit quietly with the cats.
I’m sure the cats in the café reminded Michelle of her three moggies who were very patiently waiting for her return and since she was missing her guys, this gave her a chance to experience some LOVE from some Japanese kitties.
Wasn’t that FUN? If you don’t know Michelle and her boys, you really should visit them at My Three Moggies. We are EVER so grateful to her for these past two weeks worth of great photos and wonderful Tell-All videos…………………..
A Very Special Hug for Miss Michelle From Sammy !!
