貓的語言學;Linguistics of cats

小芥:昨天下午去極簡,曾經允諾過自己買到單眼就要去拍拍,老闆娘也有建議我白天光線好,好不容易等到一個二二八,立刻拿著新相機過去,店裡人很多,親切的老闆娘帶我入座。老闆娘說位子狹窄一點,當然沒關係。有可愛的愛玉在我身邊陪我,有好多貓咪等著我去拍,其實整天店都是我的空間,都是大空間。坐在我隔壁正在討論功課,我聽到他們不斷的唸英文,看見愛玉身邊的課本是在講語言學。我覺得對照著愛玉的睡姿,非常有趣。
Michico : Yesterday, I went to Minimal Cafe again (it's a cafe with lots of cats in my city). I have promised myself while I have new camera I will go there taking photos. And the cafe owner suggested me go there at day light, the light source is better. So, I went. This Ginger cat was sleeping just next to me, I felt so comfy and happy. And there is a Text book next to this Ginger, it's about Linguistics. I think a "Linguistics" Text book next to a Sleeping cat, is a very humor compare.
愛玉:語言學?這個有啥好學的,我要睡覺。
Ginger: Linguistics? What is this about? I am going to sleep.

小愛:別問我,我什麼都不知道。不就是喵嗎?

Little Tabby : Don't ask me, I know nothing. I only know "Mieow~~"

妹妹:.... ...(睡覺)

MeiMei : ... ... (sleeping)
米粒(是米粒嗎?希望判斷沒錯) : ㄟ?貓的語言學?不就是微笑嘛?看我在暖暖的咖啡機旁邊多開心。
Black cat-Rice : ? Linguistics of cats?? Smile, right? See how happy I am staying next to the hot coffee machine~!

小愛:ㄟ樓下的,你們知不知道貓的語言學是啥?
Little Tabby : Downstairs you 2, do you know what is the Linguistics of cats?

樓下兩隻圓圓和阿喜:啥?我們兩個是在狀況外喔。

Downstairs-Circle and Ashi : What? Both of us not in this discussion.

妹妹:你們這些遜咖,還是讓我的愛玉來告訴你們啥叫語言學。

Mei-Mei: You guys are sucks, I think let my lovely Ginger tell you what is Linguistics of cats!!

愛玉:既然我愛的妹妹這麼說了,現在來了一個好機會讓我示範何謂語言學。

Ginger : Since my favirote Mei-Mei request, here we come the best example to show what is Linguistics of cats!
愛玉:小妹妹,喜歡貓咪啊?
Ginger : Hey, little girl, do you like cat?

愛玉:你真的喜歡啊,好棒好棒。摸腳腳啊,好啊給你摸。
Ginger : You do? Oah That's great? Oah you want to touch my foot? Ok, there you go.

愛玉:噢你的手手跟我的手手都一樣可愛喔~!

Ginger : Oah your hand is so cute like mine~!

愛玉:小朋友,要一直愛貓咪下去喔!!! (可愛的小女生真的有說好棒耶)

Ginger : Keep loving cats, ok? (Michico : This little girl really says : great~~yaa~~)

小女孩:貓貓掰掰~~

愛玉:掰掰~~~

Little girl : MieowMieow Bye bye~~

Ginger: Bye Bye~~

愛玉:這就是貓的語言學。無語勝有語。
Ginger: Well guys, this is Linguistics of cats. I think that girl understood. Silent is better than lots of words. She will love cats for always~!

另外還有拍到小三花。
這次回來極簡,特別到馬子面前禱告祭拜,曾經也允諾過自己一定要去看看她。馬子,我終於來看妳了,謝謝妳繼續守護著極簡。
And there is a street cat. Also very very cute.

Happy Friday to Everyone!

My friend has a degree in linguistics.

I don't know if he studied cat.

Team Tabby said...

Those are wonderful pictures of the cats in the cafe. The little girl and the ginger cat are so cute together. We are amused by the claw marks on the cafe sofa! Cats have a language all their own, ha, ha.

貓咪的語言學也都是極簡,不囉唆,
尤其是眼神,真的是無聲勝有聲...

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

What a cool cafe! I wish we had cafes where there were cats allowed. Thanks for sharing!

Awww...that little girl is sweet. Sniff. I like little kids.

Hey Adan...I am taking lessons in Japanese. Really. I will post my pictures tomorrow.

PS: Are you a boy or a girl cat? I am confused. The kimono and all; I thought you were a boy because you wore a tuxedo and a red bow tie before.

愛貓的人~
真的一個眼神一個動作就可以知道貓咪的心意
小芥去極簡怎麼沒跟慢慢約去慢慢家
很近唷,呵呵

joyce said...

小芥是自己一個人跑去極簡的ㄚ?
一個人的感覺應該也不錯吧^^

這一篇文章寫的好溫馨又可愛~
小妹妹跟愛玉的互動讓人會心一笑...
如果人類和貓咪的相處都能這樣的平和和安穩那有多好ㄚ!!

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Wow! What a lot of cats. She certainly takes lovely photos Adan.

後母 said...

喵嗚,喵嗚,啊嗚,喵∼∼
這就是貓的語言學啦!!!

William said...

How nice that Michico has a cafe to go to with so many cats! And your guests! They seem to have quite a crush on you.

Sorry I haven't been around much. Hopefully next week will be better.

Chairman Mao said...

We are so envious there is a kitty-friendly cafe there! Thank you for the lovely pictures. Through the photos we can always visit the Minimal Cafe on the other side of the world.

Luv,
Us

P.S. Our mama studied linguistics in college.

Karen Jo said...

How wonderful to have a cafe with a lot of cats in it. Ginger and the little girl really hit it off. I really enjoyed your cat linguistics.

Marilyn MonREOW said...

Wow, Adan! Those are lovely pictures of the Cafe Kitties. Such a fascinating subject, cat linguistics! And how precious, the budding friendship between the little girl and the ginger kitty.

Thank you so much, dear friend Adan, for your sweet comment about us Ballicai on my blog! You and Michico definitely make this world a more beautiful place. *smile*

Purrs and snuggles from Marilyn!

Moki said...

What an awesome cafe. I so wish they had one like that in No. CA where I live!!!

Ramses said...

I fink that cafe looks very cool! :)

Daisy said...

My Mommie wants to go to the Minimal Cafe! All the cats there look very happy and content. Do people bring their cats there, or all the cats just live there? That little girl has a cute jacket.

Kaz's Cats said...

What a great cafe! And all of those good-looking cats just hanging around waiting for a camera to appear. Nice photos, especially the little girl and Ginger.

Princess said...

Everyday I come to your blog and you make me smile. This today makes me happy to meet some of the kitties at the cafe. I like very much the picture of Black cat-rice. so confident and peaceful.
I think that book is interesting... who is this person telling all of our secrets?!

Ariel said...

Great photos,Mom says she wishes we had a cafe of cats here.The photo of the little girl and the ginger cat was so sweet and warmed my heart :)

Diamond Emerald-Eyes said...

We speak mostly in body language. It's a lot simpler to communicate that way. Kind of like a picture being worth a thousand words or something.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

The ginger cat seems to know all the secrets. We really like the pictures of him and the cute little girl. Another cat lover in the world!

Black Cat said...

Aw, those are such cute kitties and they look well fed and happy. The ginger kitty and the little girl are so cute together:) Dora and Fiona love you too Adan; well, who wouldn't love you, you are adorable:) xxx

Pearl C. Pritchard said...

A cat cafe!!!! What a great idea.

Love the photos of the little girl touching the cat paw. (Although I won't allow a child to touch me.)

Tamra Maew said...

This seems like a wonderful cafe! The servant is jealous, she would spend her whole day there. That little girl was pawsome.

Purrrs, Tamra

Parker said...

I think when humans are small they know how to talk to us, they forget when they grow up!

The Furry Kids said...

Momma wishes there were cafes like that here!
Those are very cool pictures, Michico.
Love,
Tazo

Queen Snickers and Empress said...

What a cool place! Momma heard they had tea shops like that in Tokyo. She wants them here. I told her she can have tea with me anytime! ~Queen Snickers

Lux said...

That looks like a fun place to visit, with all those kitties around! I'm glad that cat and little girl were able to communicate! :)

Tybalt said...

Wonderful pictures, Michico! Ginger is very smart. :)

Sunny's Mommy said...

What beautiful kitties. The ginger one is obviously very smart :-)

Lorianna said...

Oh, you are so lucky to have a cafe full of kitties! I would visit there everyday! Thank you Michico for sharing these beautiful cats with us. You and Adan are wonderful! :)
Hugs and Purrs,
Lorianna

Criz Lai said...

Dennis LOVES all of the photos --the Orange cat looks nice! But Dennis likes HUMANS best!

Chancy, Ernie's Voice & Jake said...

Hi Adan...I don't think we have a cafe like that here in the states. Very interesting. Looks like fun to us.
Thank you for the heads up on our pix! We can see them now. But, some still can't see them. We have no idea what is going on! SO SORRY!
Anyone have any ideas?

HUGS~Chancy, Ernie's Voice & Jake
