Shadow Shot Sunday of my Siamese cat and Summer Vacation

I am posting a bit early this time. I leave from Japan for the States tomorrow for my 11 day vacation at my Mom's house. Hurray! I am looking forward to being home. It will be a long day. I take the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) to Tokyo, then the Narita Express train to Narita Airport. I transfer from the International flight to Domestic in California. In total, I will spend 20 hours travelling to get to my destination.

About three years ago, I brought my siamese cat, Sputnik, to Japan from Mexico. My m-i-l had been caring for her in Mexico. When we realised we would be in Japan for longer than a year, I decided to bring Sputnik over. After 3 months of planning the logistics and working with 3 different country's and airline's animal policies, I got her safely to her new home in Japan. Korean Air allowed me to take her on board as a carry-on, so I was relieved to have her sitting next to me the entire trip. Otherwise, I would have been wondering if she had been put on the plane or how she was doing. She was quiet the entire trip.

Autumn has already begun in Northern Japan. During this season, Sputnik likes to sleep by the window between the curtains.

What a worthy name for a Siamese, yet she doesn't really have that mischievous, aloof look of the breed...lucky you, what a sweet face and fun shot.

this is lovely Sputnik is just beautiful, i can't believe they let you take her as carry on luggage, how lucky to have her with you and she was so well behaved. Enjoy your holiday. :0)
