A Kitten Named Banzai

There are two Japanese words that have extremely similar sounds.  Bonsai , referring to the pruned and manicured artsy tree, and Banzai, which is actually part of an ancient war cry meaning "May the emperor live 10,000 years!!!".

Banzai the kitten (only 4 weeks old!) is a little firecracker, so of course, his namesake would have to be the word that displays a bit more action and spunk. He was found by a local Marine stuck in a drain pipe, starving and dehydrated.  The base veterinarian coaxed and nursed him, as well as his sister, until they were well enough to go to a new home. We are excited about this little bit of furry nature prancing through our tiny apartment.  

Apparently, he enjoys fighting fires....

and battling dragons and dinosaurs.

A true military cat, Banzai also has an affinity for rifle magazines.

Killer the Bee and the World's First Guard Cat

Mr. Fumble Bumble is attempting to muster up some gentleness...

Even Killer knows Banzai is tiny!

.....and Banzai simply must end the day in his basket snoozing with a cuddly bear.

Beeism of the Day- Killer Wishes He was All Grown Up

Queenie and her 3 bees went to have lunch at the food court here on base last week.  They were approaching the line, and Queenie gave Killer 2 choices:

"Tacos or Taco Salad, Killer?" Queenie asked.

"Hmmmmmm..." Killer quietly thought.

Then, he continued, "I want Taco Salad.  Because Taco Salad is BIG, and I want to be a MAN."
