Thanks for that Antony, the Japanese are able to recognise the spirit of all creatures. I M looking forward to re meeting my Japanese kitty friends in October when I visit Osaka again. So warm and nice here in Pattaya, even my Thai kitty friends don't complain about the heat! Keep rugged up in those cold Sydney nights and mornings.
