Allow me to introduce to you the Nakayama family cats


6 cats in all as of 7th June 1998

The eldest brother, Hiyo-maru is fifteen years old this year.
He was picked up by my sister when my atelier was near Toshimaen.

The second eldest brother Melon-pan and the eldest sister Anne-pan are both thirteenyears old this year.

Their Mother is Mimi, who had lived in my parent's house in Okayama.
She had chanced to meet a cool Japanese striped guy when she went out for a walkaround the house, then Melon-pan and Anne-pan were born.

After then, their only son Una Chof A Coup De Grace, so-called Chof was born somehow from the brother-sister's marriage. This year(1998) is his anniversary of the Oriental Zodiac.

Eleven years later since Chof was born;

In the meantime, our old resident Granny Milk passed away by renal insufficiency at the age of fifteen, and her sister Granny Love-pack also passed away of old age at twenty years and nine months. After the farewells, I took over Dash and Prime as foster children from Animals Rescue Party in Kobe

They, alias Black Phantoms, who are barely two years old now.

Dash and Prime seem not so clever in contrast to my old family members Melon-pan and Anne-pan who are as bright as dogs. They, such naughty children, are quite strangers for me. However I feel they are so interesting and lovely. Lives are wonderful, aren't they?

"Who cares!" Queen Anne spoken with bad temper.

I have produced some ten pages of four-box comics about my life with Nerimador cats. I would like to show you someday.
