桜猫 Sakura Cats
都内の公園で「季節感のある野良猫写真」を撮っています。「桜猫」は文字通りの意味のほかに、「四季ある国、日本の猫」の意味も込めています。日本の猫、みんな桜猫! (Since 2005年3月10日)。About the cats living in one of the public parks of Tokyo. "Sakura Cats" means all the cats living in Japan, as Sakura means Japanese flowering cherry and is a symbol of Japan.

最後の目撃 Last Sighted

Boko: 2月末頃 around end of February
餌遣りの人から、餌遣りをじっと見ている怪しい人がいるので写真を撮るときも気を付けてと言われました。
I was told from a caregiver to be careful, when taking pictures of cats, of a suspicious person who was watching the scenes closely from somewhere.

Deko: 3月末頃 around end of March
ボコがいなくなってから、デコが遠い場所にいるのが何度も目撃されています。きっと必死にボコを探していたのでしょう。胸がジーンとなりました。
After Boko disappeared, Deko was often seen in a distant place. I thought he was desperately searching for Boko. So sad, so touching.

ゴマが11月23日を最後に出て来なくなって心配していたのですが、12月4日に桜の木の下のヤブの中で死んでいるのが見つかりました。少なくとも14歳、死因は不明です。チャッピーの隣に埋葬されました。

While I was worried that she had not been sighted since November 23, she was found dead, on December 4, in the bush near the sakura tree. She was at least 14 years old. The cause of death was unknown. She was buried next to Chappy.

* ゴマは餌やりの人たちの間での名前、ギャビーは公園に住んでいたおじさんたちか呼んでいた名前です。
* Goma was the name given by regular feeders, Gabby given by homeless guys.

このことから、Those pictures suggest;
1. 生年は2002またはそれ以前 She was born in 2002 or earlier. (2002にしておきます。I vote 2002.)
2. トラノスケ(茶トラ)とママ(黒白猫)は親ではない。Toranosuke (ginger cat) and Mama (b/w cat) are not her parents.
(a) トラノスケは2002年生まれで、遠く離れた場所にいた Toranosuke was born in 2002 and living far from here.
(b) ママは2003年生まれ Mama was born in 2003.
3匹一緒にいることが多かったので、新しく来た餌遣りの人が家族と誤解したのでしょう。 They were often seen together, and a new feeder believed they were a family.

ゴマはチャッピーよりも数年年上だったんですね。Surprised that she was a few years older than Chappy was.
