I got Taiyo as a kitten in May 2012, two days after I got my other cat Vashti. A few months before that I moved to my first apartment, after having lived four years in a student house where I wasn't allowed to have any pets. I grew up always having cats around, so I felt having no cats around made the house very empty. Getting cats will definitely be one of the best decisions of my life :)
Taiyo is a blue tabby point Ragdoll. I called him Taiyo after the Japanese word for 'Sun', because he was completely white when I got him, but now that he got some colour he looks more like a tiny lion/tiger hybrid to me. He always quietly follows me around the house and then always finds the laziest spot in the room to take a five-hour long nap. Occasionally however, he feels the need to go on this sort of roaring rampage. I have absolutely NO idea why, but apparently he then thinks he is Spidercat, and obviously a Spidercat does whatever a Spidercat needs to do, which is to climb into the door posts and then slowly glide down again. Well, you know Taiyo, you gotta do what you gotta do...
Apart from that he is a real sucker for anything with feathers and fur, and unlike any other normal feline, his favourite food isn't chicken, or salmon, or turkey. No, no, he is sure that what I like most he likes most too, so I always have to make sure all the cake, nougat or cupcake frosting is under lock and key at all times. Based on this, I do believe I qualify as a 'crazy cat' lady ;-)
Anyway, this post is just my way of saying that we should never take the presence of our 'furry kids' for granted :) I love you Taiyo! Don't ever stop being weird and wonderful!
