Hello. I’m Akiko.
I am Akiko, also known as Kiko, Mine Kiko, Natty Bumpo (this will be explained in a future post), Smooshface, Smooshy and many other, less polite, names.
I am a 2.5 year old, female, bi-colour (blue and fawn) exotic shorthair who lives in Sydney, Australia. I live with my owners, Barry, Vicki and Gabrielle. My other owner Jacqueline lives in Melbourne but visits sometimes.
I am an indoor cat who would love to go outside. I am very independent and I have a strong hunting instinct. I don’t much like being picked up or cuddled but will occasionally indulge my owners. I don’t like the flash on the camera so getting good photos of me is hard but my owners try. My owners know better than to even try to dress me in cute outfits. My owners also have a Japanese Chin dog named Kobi. He is 13 years old and I don’t like him very much.
My blog will feature photos and videos of me taken by my owners. The dog may occasionally appear as well.
To begin with, here is a photo of me taken a couple of days after my owners picked me up from the airport. I had to fly from Tamworth, NSW to Sydney, NSW when I moved in with my owners. I am about four months old here.
