Hi Osamu san,I enjoy your paintings of Tama. She looks like she had a sweet spirit. I looked up the meaning of Tama online and I found several. What did your Tama's name mean? Any of these:Tama can have multiple meanings in Japanese depending on the way it is written: 魂 this tama means "soul"球 this tama means "Sphere"玉 this tama means "ball"弾 this one means "bullet"Or I even read it might mean "jewel." P.S. I have two 13 year old cats who are brothers. Or maybe they have me as a pet. :)
Hi EnnaMy cat's name Tama means jewel in Japanese old term. Also, this is the most common name for female cat name.
Hi again Osamu san,That is a lovely name. Tama was a most precious jewel. I bet you she is having fun in kitty heaven. How many cats can brag to other cats that they were painted so many times? :) She will live forever in your beautiful watercolors.
Hi EnnaThank you for the nice comment. I think about Tama every time I see paintings of her.
