Ultramonsters & Jiji!!!


Thanks to Jeff from the TAG blog!

I got a kitten! And she's the cutest I have ever met! Named after Jiji from Kiki's Delivery Service- also my childhood cat J.J., she has warmed all our hearts with her extremely loving nature. She's the most people friendly cat ever!



I need to work on my drawings of her though- I suck!

I love our new little family <3

a message from Jiji (who is currently crawling all over me):

"i like be in lap of large glasses man all day. chair taste good and i like chew. i look at large glasses man and funny cartoon lady who buy me then lick. then i use box then i scratch box then make brown crunchys then sleep"

Awwwwwwwww! Kali she's a doll!

You're in it for the long haul, mama--my oldest kitty I got when she was wee--Sylvie (after Vartan). I got her way back when I was working with Eddie, Mike et al--she's 19 now!
And Henry was so tiny & adorable, a real fiend...he's now..17. :-O

So congratulations! & btw, your drawings of Jiji are terrific. I love the one of both of you but they're all great!

I love kitties but I am wildly, fatally allergic to them.

She looks like a calico cat! Blarghh my favorite! The picture of her on Nico is hilarious because she is like the size of his eyelash.

Nice drawings and cute kitty. I'm not very informed about Japanese youth culture, but I get the impression that for the Japanese equivalent of Miley Cyrus, performing with people in ridiculous monster suits is de riguer.

Emily said...

All I can say is...awwwwwwwww.

I'm wearing my Kali shoes right now, will take pics as soon as is possible ;)

Molly said...

Love the drawing of the kitty on your knee, adorable!

Give Jiji a kissy from Aunt Molly!

"my oldest kitty I got when she was wee--Sylvie (after Vartan)"

AWW!

Ya, I grew up with cats, but they went with my parents when I left, then one decided to leave my parents, and the other one ost to the wilderness :(

Jiji is going to be kept inside safe and sound, and only exposed to humans.

"So congratulations! & btw, your drawings of Jiji are terrific. I love the one of both of you but they're all great!"

Thanks!!! She barely ever sits still hahaha. She likes to sleep on the small of my back :p

"OMYGOSH You got a kitty?!?"

YES! Come say hi to her :D

"It looks like NICO needs to get something off his chest!"

Hwah hwa hwa!! He doesn't want to though ahah.

"I love kitties but I am wildly, fatally allergic to them."

So is my boyfriend, but he loves kittens- he usually just packs up on allergy pills and his inhaler before seeing any animals.

"Nice drawings and cute kitty. I'm not very informed about Japanese youth culture"

Ya me neither- the video is from the mid 80s at least though I think.

"I'm wearing my Kali shoes right now, will take pics as soon as is possible ;)"

I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE!!!

"Give Jiji a kissy from Aunt Molly!"

Auntie Molly and Uncle Carl! Awwww!

M. R Darbyshire said...

Is she a KALIco?!

Kali Fontecchio said...

Yes, Calico indeed.

M. R Darbyshire said...

Cool!

Very very very cute drawings

Caleb said...

Yay, kitties! I like the drawing of her on your knee. kitten purrs kick arse.

My girlfriend and I got a calico kitten a few months back, they look similar. We call her Inksy because she looks like an orange tabby with black ink dumped on her.

thomas said...

The drawing with you and the cat's great. Looks like kitty's got real long legs. Maybe concentrate on that next time you draw her.

From a fellow cat owner!
Actually, they own us!
You'll find out!

Lester Hunt said...

I love her colors!

J.R. Spumkin said...

Aww, Jiji looks adorable! Tell her I said hi!

Mr Goodson said...

The of you with the cat on your knee is great. I'm going to double post your Japanese Monster Dancer to the other Blog as an addition to Jeff's post.
Cats are great. Until they get fleas.

Kali Fontecchio said...

"Very very very cute drawings"

Thanks Darby :)

"I like the drawing of her on your knee. kitten purrs kick arse."

Yes they do. My mom used to have a orange Tabby named Gabby, who did just that, gab gab gab haha.

"Actually, they own us!
You'll find out!"

Oh I know!

"Tell her I said hi!"

Will do, "Jiji, the internet said HI"

Ellis: my kitten will never get fleas!!!

Ya that post ruled- love weird Japanese stuff haha.

Whitney Pollett said...

OOOH SO CUTE!!! I had a little calico kitten I found behind a dumpster when I was little and I named her Bringdingdingdingding.... she was always scared and so one day she ran away....into a car. :(
....ooooh.
Moral of the story...Don't name your pets onomonopias!
I want to meet her!!

Freckled Derelict said...

Yay! Kitten power! Jiji's should come hang out with my kitten Winston

Art Fan Ako said...

Nice likeness of you and your cat. Stumbled into your blog. Cute illustrations!

Mitch K said...

El Bergo said...

whoa, thats a cool video.

David Germain said...

Ha HA! For some reason, people in Japan still think it's the 1980's. >:P

That is a beautiful cat. His coat may look a little dingy now, but trust me when he grows up those Calico colours will be stunning. I had two Calico cats, a mother and daughter team, they're coats also looked better when they matured. Sadly, both of them died of cancer, the mother in 1999 and the daughter in 2005.

You take good care of Jiji.

Sean Wiig said...

Haha, it says 'コズミック ラブ', which is japanese phonetic for 'cozumiku labu' (cosmic love).
And in the back it says 'レッツゴーヤング', which is 'letsu go yangu' (let's go young).
Japanese english is funny.

Kali Fontecchio said...

Aww thanks David, I will take care of her don't worry :).

Sean:

Whoa! Haha, "let's go young"? So weird!

Ron said...

Great cat pictures :)
I really dig that first drawing too.

Mike Nassar said...

crazy video. but people in moster costumes doing serious song and dance is always awesome and welcome in the world.

the grey Jiji sketch looks great.
awesome cat BTW, she looks always aware and ready to strike yet love at the same time. An excellent quality in an animal.
