猫カフェclassicの猫(英文)

池袋のねころび様が猫スタッフ紹介文と猫カフェでのお客への注意事項とを英文で書いておられる。
福岡猫カフェClassic様の猫たちの紹介を英文で、という無謀な試みを少しずつアップ。
Classic名曲をお店猫のテーマ曲として喩えておられる。
本当は曲や作曲者の背景を良く理解していたほうが良いのだろうが…一応調べたし、真剣に資料を読めば面白いのだけど何しろ興味が殆ど無い分野。


英語を覚えたのは洋楽で、それも英国のロックというクチなのでね。

別に依頼されたわけではない。
自分が考えた英文ではなく、他人が考えた和文を英訳することは勉強にもなるし。

困ったのは自分の文法、語彙力の無さよりもクラシック音楽の知識。
作曲家や題名が殆ど分からなかった!
フォルテちゃん紹介文,

Name: Forte Breed: Maine coon cat  Sex: Female 
Colour: Brown-Patched Tabby and White
Birthday: 5/Apr./2009
She has a sharp ear and eats like a pig.

She always helps her fellow cats very well, but once she saw cats’ treats, changes her attitude.
She steals treats that are supposed to be given to other cats without mercy.

Her proud sharp radar ears never miss to catch the sounds of toys and food.
She eats and plays well, anyway.

The theme song for Forte : “Saber Dance” composed by Khachaturyan, is used at the final chapter of Classical Ballet, “Gayane”
This song represents the dance for battle which is performed with the instrumental swords.
It sounds as wild and active as Forte, the cat.


Name: Vivi 


Breed: Scottishhold  
Sex: Female 
Birthday: 2007/03/26 
Color: Red and White


She punches her fellow cats with rapid speed and threatens them.

She hates other cats, but for human being, behaves as a spoilt child.  
She is the do-gooder who never misses to welcome and see us off.
However, her best effort to go about her daily business in order to show her teeth to her fellow cats now.
She is like an illusionary cat who hardly appear to our cat café as cat staff.
The theme song for Vivi: “The Firebird”, composed by Igor Stravinsky, the music for classical ballet based on Russian folktale.
It is very cool tune, but you may find it difficult to play. 
The reason why we chose this tune for Vivi, is just the color of the fire reminds me of her personality.
