iPhone/iPad Cat Petting App: Perfect for Lonely Japanese People

Most places in Japan won’t let you have any animals. I guess this is why this iPhone/iPad cat app makes sense. Honestly, if I wanted another cat, I’d just go out and catch one of those stray kittens, even if my place doesn’t allow any animals (it doesn’t, and we’ve got a cat and a dog anyway).

Yoda At 17 Months

Yoda sitting on my lap

Yoda cat has calmed down quite a bit since this summer. She’s a happy domesticated kitty-cat and enjoys spending a lot of time with her “brother” Spike. She likes knowing where he is at all times and doesn’t like to be separated from him, which is strange, since Spike is a 5-year old French bulldog.

We’ve had her for 17 months. I rescued her in July ’08 as a kitten. She was between 7-10 days old at that time. I had to bottle feed her milk four times a day for a while until she was ready to eat solid food.

At the time, I knew that my next pet would be named Yoda. I didn’t expect it to be a Mr. Micro Cat, which was my nickname for her when I rescued her. I was actually thinking that our next pet would be another Frenchie. The name Yoda implies big ears, and Frenchies do have them.

And yes, her fur is as fluffy as you’d believe it is.
