Pirate!

I have a new roommate:

 





His name is Pirate, and in acquiring him, I have officially joined the elusive collection of folks (mostly gaijin, I suspect) within Japan who keep pets in non-pet apartments. But let's face it, if only people in pet-friendly apartments had pets, there would likely be something on the order of 500 pets in the country, and by my calculations, 95% of those would be snooty dachshunds.









Pirate is of another breed of pet entirely. He was rescued in Nagoya (a city a few hours north of Kyoto) by an English teacher who discovered him on the side of the road, covered in blood after being hit by a car. She scooped him up and took him to a vet, who had to do extensive surgery on his face that required several months to recover from, if I'm remembering the story right. Now, as you can see, he has a permanently pirate-like expression (ARRGGHH!!), plus an eye and an ear that don't work. ;(Hence his name.)
Unfortunately, she, too, lived in a no-pet apartment, and thus was forced to bring him down to Shiga Prefecture, where he was delivered into the hands of the Japan Cat Network, and then, eventually...me. :)
