The next morning, my mother, my sister and I were sleeping peacefully in the washitsu*.
“Huuuh? Hey! You guys haven’t woken up yet? I’m awake! Hey! Hey! I’m coming in, okay? You all look so comfy in your futons! Mind if I join you?” Nyami let herself in.
It was the only time she sounded like that.
We all pretended to be asleep and listened to her purring. “She’s so cute,” we all thought to ourselves.
Before she came to us, Nyami was all alone, caged in a smelly, noisy pet shop. She woke up alone every morning, so I think she was happy to see people sleeping in comfy beds!
However, Nyami was also aggressive!
“Who do you think you are?!”
It was very scary.
In fact, it was terrifying! Nyami took a dislike to my sister. She even went for her legs after she had taken a bath! I didn’t do anything to wind the cat up, so Nyami left me alone.
“Ahh! I’m scared”
