Cats’ Day

Today is Cats’ Day in Japan! (=^・^=)
The number “2” is pronounced “ni” in Japanese and it sounds similar to “nya”, the onomatopoeia (imitative word) in Japanese for the crying sound that cats make.
The date February 22nd has the most occurrences of the number “2” out the year, so it is said that it’s Cats’ Day in Japan today!
(It’s not an official one and you can’t find it on the calender, though.)
The lovely cat in this picture is my sister Chuppi.
She passed away a few years ago but she’s still the most important cat to me. 🙂
