お花茶屋の猫たち (Ohanajaya's Celebrity Cats)

今日のリハが終わって、駅に向かう時に、二匹の猫ちゃんに出会いました。わたる君曰く、お花茶屋の一番有名な住居者。
On the way to the station after rehearsal today, I came across two adorable cats. Wataru told me that everyone around Ohanajaya knows them.
門柱の上にのんびりと横になっていた猫とどうしても写真撮りたかった。
I really couldn't come up with a good reason not to take pictures with these cats, lying leisurely on the gateposts without a care in the world.
まずはみかんちゃん。
This one's called Mikan-chan.

Mikan means tangerine or mandarin orange. She won me over! (My cheeks hurt from grinning so much.)

飼い主が私の興奮に気付いて、多分寝ていたTom君を起こして、もう一つの門柱に載せた。機嫌悪そうだったけど、触りたくて仕方なかった。
When the owner saw how excited I was to touch Mikan-chan, she brought over the other one, Tom. I think he was asleep when she picked him up ... he didn't seem to be in the best of spirits. Nevertheless, I tried to be his friend.

I'm the only one smiling in this picture.

みかんちゃんの嬉しそうな顔を見て、ちょっと調子に乗ってしまいました。

Tom君、すみませんでした!今度は聞いてからなでるね。
Sorry Tom! I got a little overexcited when Mikan accepted my gesture of friendship.


よっし!明日のライブ、頑張る~!!
Yay. ♫ I needed that before tomorrow's shows. :D
