A day in the life of our cats

[Poki meows] [Haku chewing on curtain drawstring] [Poki meows] Haku, stop. [Poki meows] [opens curtains] [Poki meows] [Poki meows] Morning. [opens curtains] [Poki meows] [Poki meows] [Poki meows] *too bright!*
[Poki meows] Good morning. Hungry boys! Haku! Sh*t. Haku, what are you doing?
Eat. “But I didn’t do paw trick yet!” [Poki meows] [Poki meows] Bud! Before we go to sleep we have to turn around
this trash can. Otherwise, Poki will go in. While Rachel’s feeding the cats,
I normally clean the litter because it ~SMELLS~ This is my favorite part. Got it 👍 Bye bye. Aaand you guys switched.
Like always. The grass on the other side is always greener, huh? [whispers]
IT’S THE SAME FOOD Does it taste better, buddy? You done eating? You done eating? All right, bud. Get in here. Hi Poki. [Poki meows] Hi, Poki the dishwasher. Mmm, so clean I can see your face. Hi buddy. This is Nagi’s favorite post-breakfast pose. Laying in exactly this position
with his tail swishing down. Aww, he’s so cute. This is Haku’s “I’m content/full” pose. Hm? What? Oh. Oh? *dat pupil dilation* Haku is really obsessed with this tube. He figured out how to turn on the roomba
by pawing at the start button twice and if we’re not playing with him enough
he’ll do this multiple times a day and then run back in the tube and wait for the roomba to come by
and then attack it from inside the tube.
And it’s really cute. The thing is, the roomba doesn’t really get
to clean around the area when Haku’s in it. All right, I’m gonna start making
smoothie and run the roomba now. So this is the time of day where Haku starts telling
us he’s really bored and needs attention. But the thing is
he needs attention like 30 hours a day. IT’S NEVER ENOUGH. Hey Haku!
Um, I don’t think I brushed him yet. Look at that fluffy tail. Look at that tail! So shedding season is over,
but they still shed and unless we brush them like every day
they eat their fur and then throw up. It’s easier to brush them for some reason
if we give them the furminator to attack. If we try to brush them with the furminator they
try to eat it. So we give them that in advance and then we
can brush them with the hand brush. And now grooming. He is a busy cat. So, Nagi used to drink water normally. But now after he saw Haku put his paw in the water bowl
and then lick his paw he sometimes does that, too. Nagi does a lot of things that Haku does, now. Normally Poki spends most of his day sleeping especially right next to the window where
he can be in the sunlight but I guess today Nagi’s feeling a little feisty. Poki’s just like “I’m busy.” Jun’s cooking lunch now
aaaand he’s got some buddies watching him very closely. [Nagi meows] Oh, you wanna play now, too? [Nagi meows] [Nagi meows] You’re just done now? You found a comfortable position
and you’re just done playing? Look at this big fluff tummy. Look at this tummy! Haku… We walk away for two minutes. What did you guys do? Haku It looks like you’re wearing a tie What? No! Dangit, stop You just gonna live with that on you forever? Dammit Poki, stop Get down. I can’t step away to film the cats for
even a minute. Oh. Oh! Haku, you did it! Haku’s in fight mode. Poki, you better watch out. Haku’s gonna fight you. This video is just turning into
Haku Bullies Everyone. All right, Haku’s done with
his bully phase. It’s time for baths and sleeps. This is the drawer that has all the cats toys
and Nagi knows, so every time I open… I just wanted to clean the litter. This one also has the cat litter bags, so.
Sorry, baby. So if we open one of the other rooms of course the cats want to explore
and see what’s going on so they follow us. Especially Haku.
Haku’s very curious. Hi Poki!
Nagi’s here now. And Haku’s exploring. I used to have a fake bird on the branch but now…
Holland! Where’s Holland? He’s on the top shelf. There. Is he okay?! He’s okay.
This is really sad, Jun. He’s just… He’s in a safe place. Nooo! He’s… he’s dead! I’m concerned for his safety. That’s why I hid him. Oh
Uh oh All the cats are going places. Oh gosh NO POKI NO nononono Okay Ah god
Okay Poki is a killer. He’s a natural born killer. Jun stop! Nagi, what are you doing? Making it smell like you? You’re gonna fall. Careful! You’re gonna fall! Is there cat nip over there? I don’t think so. Are you sure? Yeah… my cat nip plants are outside. But… I guess he’s tripping? They’re still exploring. Nagi… Nagi! He’s so cute. Lookit his squishy little fluff face. Are you having a good time? All right. I’ve gotta work on the recipe
for my video. Enjoy. Have fun, kitties. Ope. Haku’s found a spot. Okay. You can help me work on my recipe
for the video, baby. blah blah blah blah It’s past 5pm now which means Poki’s going to keep meowing
for the next two hours until dinner. [Poki meows] They eat at 7 but he starts meowing at 5. Every day. [Poki meows] No. Doesn’t matter how much you meow at us [Poki meows] you don’t get to eat until 7. Otherwise you’ll wake up really early
and eat all our plants. [Poki meows] I smell too much like shampoo
and not enough like him. This is just something we have to deal with
every time we shower. Oh god, bud. You’re gonna fall. Oh god
he’s gonna take my hair with him It’s now 6:06. [Poki meows] It’s 6:11.
[Poki meows] [Poki meows] It’s 6:14. [Poki meows] [Poki meows] [Poki meows] [Poki meows] Excuse me. Nope. Excuse me.
No- all right. It’s 6:26. [Poki meows] Come here. What are you doing? [Poki meows] What’re you doing? [Poki meows] Come on! It’s not dinnertime yet! [Poki meows] Still got-
nope, you got 33 minutes. Ya gotta wait. Like everyone else. Isn’t that right!
[Poki meows] Look who’s being patient! It’ 6:37.
[Poki meows] [Poki meows] Poki, what are you doing? Huh? PO~KI [Poki meows] What time is it?! Is it 7?! Is it food time?! [Poki meows] Are all the kitties hungry? Nagi Give me your paw.
Oh! Haku? Okay, you go first? Gimme your paw, please. Haku, one more time. Okay, gimme your paw. Paw Haku, jump Haku, jump Woo! Okay Other paw. One more time. Other paw. High five! Yaaaay good boy! Poki! [Poki meows] We feed Poki in the hallway because normally
he comes back and steal other kitty’s food. [POKI MEOWING]
He’s guiding us [POKI MEOWING]
He’s letting us know where his food bowl is. [POKI MEOWING]
Marching. Marching. Yep. Poki, gimme paw. The other one. One more time. Oooh, good boy. God damn bud, slow down. All right. Everybody’s done eating. Nagi’s got the post-dinner sleepies. Aaaand Haku What are you doing? Are you over here waiting for Poki? Let’s let Poki back in! All right, buddy! Come on! What are you doing? He’s hunting for people food. What are you doing?
You gonna go in the trash can? You gonna pretend like you
weren’t gonna go in the trash can? And wait for me to turn around? All right. It’s nighttime now so
let’s shut the curtains. As soon as I’m ready for bed,
every night when I turn out the lights [Nagi meows] [Nagi meows] What? You wanna play? What do you wanna play with? Come here. What do you want? Which one? That one? All right. Playtime is over.
It’s time for bed. This is how Poki sleeps every night. He’s making me jealous. He’s my cuddle buddy. Good night, Poki. And this is where Haku sleeps. Which is Rachel’s feet area. Hi baby. We have same futon
same bed but Haku always prefer on Rachel’s side
for some reason. I’m shorter than you.
There’s probably more room. Oh, he knows? Okay. And Nagi always sleeps right next to my pillow. Right here. Hi baby.
Are you purring? Yes, you are. Okay. Goodnight, Nagi. Good night! Thank you to Audible

  1. Q&A

    Why do we put water in their bowls:
    To force them to drink more since cats (especially cats that eat dry food) tend to be dehydrated a lot and it can cause health issues like urine crystals and kidney stones. Haku has urine crystals once the first year we had him.

    Why don’t we just feed them wet food?
    When we initially got our cats we had a hard time finding food that Haku and Nagi would eat that didn’t also give them diarrhea. Poor Poki also is susceptible to bloody diarrhea and will leave blood spots all over the apartment if we’re not careful with what he eats. Our vet recommended this specific one (Prescription Diet… I believe Digestive Care) and now they all have A+ beautiful poops. We also often boil and finely chop chicken, and sprinkle that on their food. We’re open to possibly trying other types of food for them sometime, but we just want to be careful because their stomachs get upset easily and if Haku doesn’t like it he just won’t eat.

    But dry food is supposed to clean their teeth and now that you put water in it their teeth aren’t going to get clean:
    Dry food doesn’t really clean cat teeth very well, but we do have cat tooth brushes (silicon finger brushes) and cat toothpaste and we actually brush their teeth (although not every day).

    Why don’t you try water fountains for your cats:
    We’ve had them but he cats kept breaking them, and after a while no matter how much we cleaned them they’d start getting slimy and the cats wouldn’t drink from them anymore. I’m definitely willing to try again sometime if I figure out something different I can try to stop it from getting slimy! Also I always forgot to turn it off while filming and we’d have a hundred comments saying “THE WATER NOISE THO D:”

    Why don’t you guys sleep together:
    Wat. We do!! Bed sets are really common here in Japan, where you buy either one big bed frame or two that lock together, and then each partner gets their own mattress so they can have exactly the level of comfort they want. We have two semi-double mattresses because sleep is hella important and I want my damn room to stretch! I have foam pads on my side because Japanese mattresses are as soft as wooden planks, so my side ended up higher than Jun’s.

    yeh 💕 😀

  2. Nagi- soft shy meows, trill-ish in nature.
    Haku- Soft yet robust, the sound of a confident cat who isn't afraid to be themself.
    Poki- Your sleep paralysis demon on adderall.

  3. Shampoos often have catnip in them. This could be why your cats like to get all over your hair after you shower.

  4. I don’t know if anyone asked this but…. why did you put water in with the food??? Is it like two in one or is it made like that?????
    Edit: I write this and then I saw them explaining…. WELP

  5. Dude, your wife is pretty and your cats are great and everything but  my little kitten is about 100 times cuter and my RV is 10 times bigger

  6. introducing the poki alarm clock the alarm clock that wakes you up in the regular morning like 5 in the morning if you want your own alarm clock like this please call1 800 555 please don't call this is not a real number

  7. I wish there was an ethical way to drown Poki in an abundance of food so that he can finally think, "Maybe I won't starve if I'm not CONSTANTLY prowling for my next meal."

  8. Your cats have a wonderful life and must be happy. I’m sure they’ll live a long good life❤️ you take such good care of them.

  9. LMAO don't worry your not alone at all because I had more than 9 cats so……uuuummmmmm…..yeah lol 😊😂 also I'm a cat lover lmao
