I wanted to have Kyoko’s kitten videos on my new channel so i did a remix and put new music over it.
I like revisiting old memories like how Nice Guy reacted when he was first harassed by kyoko, or how Kyoko played with literally EVERYTHING in sight. Including my pant leg, a bouncy ball and his old wooden brush.
He gets so wild about playing that he even bonks straight into a wall… oops. I believe all of this footage was from the first day we adopted Kyoko.
How we got Kyoko:
In June 2011 Kyoko was adopted from a local ad found on the internet for $20, we guessed that he was only about a month old.
Out of all the kitten ads we saw, he was the cutest little guy we could find.
We didn’t want to get a girl kitty, we needed another male kitty to keep our Mr. Nice Guy some company.
Why he is named Kyoko
Kyoko was named after a city in Japan called Kyoto. It was also my name in Japanese class in highschool, it meant “today’s child”. Later we found out that Kyoko is really a girl’s name. He has a high pitched meow, so I guess that is okay!
How he related to his humans
He was always curious and watching what us people are doing, as though he will one day do what he sees us do.
He gave us long adoring looks, making direct eye contact… with such love!
Nice Guy’s reaction to little Kyoko
He didn’t really like the idea of Kyoko coming to live in HIS home…
But he learned to tolerate him, as he tolerates most other things.
From kitten to adult
Here is a gif that I made to celebrate the fact that we don’t have to be the same species to be kind to one another!
I showed Nice Guy and Kyoko a drawing I made a while back…
I’d say it resembles him, but then again a cat has a high opinion of their own beauty which is reflected not by appearance but from within.
Then there was the drawing I showed Kyoko… (which was only a mild resemblance.)
I think I drew this cat in such a way because Kyoko has a habit of becoming very startled when there is a loud sound or the dreaded plastic bag crinkle. He doesn’t delay to LEAP out of your lap or scurry out of your arms, sometimes using claws. Poor timid boy… If only I could explain that the bag isn’t his enemy.
I’ve just been in the mood to make fan art lately, there are a lot of people out there who post nice things about their animals. Here is a drawing I did inspired by pictures from an instagram user:
winnie_cat_ has a wonderful cat who is friendly with the family birds. There are even video clips of the cuties together!
This is what I imagine my cat, Kyoko, to look like when he runs over to steal my chair. But since I never see him do it I just don’t know.
It doesn’t seem to matter if I’m gone to get a drink, use the restroom or simply go get a pencil. No matter how quickly I return he is there in my spot smugly looking at me or licking himself.
Then I have to wheel the computer chair away so that I can pull up a different chair. Smart guy knows where the warm places are.

Have you ever wondered “What do police dogs do?”
Well here is a video of a show i went to recently where they displayed what police dogs are capable of doing to help officers do their job.
This videos focus is to show the dogs sniffing out lost or discarded objects that can lead to the arrest of suspects who may have gotten away with their crime if they had actually managed to get rid of key evidence.
The man asks for a set of keys to be thrown far into the field from the audience for the dog to find.
Here are MORE VIDEOS showing what kinds of things police dogs are capable of:
Finding hidden people & drugs
Stopping bad guys from escape
Protecting officers from attack
