I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

Mystique Shutterbug: Old and New Cats
Caramel gave birth to two kittens four months ago. My sister insisted on naming them after her favorite Philippine TV Series characters, Wako (orange) and Kokey (black). I know they do sound absurd, so my Mom and I suggested to change Kokey into Kay.
This is a funny picture of Wako and Kay planking.
I don't know why Kay's fond of looking upwards whenever I snap a photo of her.
Wako and Kay are by far one of the sweetest kitty siblings we've ever had.
Here's Kay playing with the headset.
Here's a sad news about Wako. We found out that he has feline epilepsy. He's had more than five seizures since April 8, 2012. According to online sources, this sickness is never curative. We can only decrease the frequency, severity and duration of seizures with anti-convulsant drugs which.... we can't afford.
Wako doesn't let his condition get in the way of his "happiness", which is to play with everything that he finds amusing.
One big happy family. Left to Right: Kay, Wako, Caramel and Bench.
Mousy used to hate Wako and Kay, but that maltreatment changed after she had a miscarriage. She's now back to being the kind and lovable cat we know. See? She even breastfeeds Wako. Sweet, eh?
This is Mousy with her two babies. The bigger one is just actually her adopted kitty we named as Saucer. Maybe Mousy didn't realize she had a miscarriage, that's why she thought it was hers. The smaller one is her one and only survivor offspring. We named him Snap-snap. I hope he'll grow as healthy as her mother.
This is how Caramel shows how much she cares for Mousy. I almost got teary-eyed watching how loving these cats are. This is definitely a moment worth capturing.
....More photos soon...
