Tanaka has been especially sweet to grandma when Toro was in hospital. He sat with her, played with her and talked to her for a whole week. Tanaka is usually not a kitty who is THIS affectionate, preferring his own space and activities to sitting with anyone for any longer than a few minutes at a time. Grandma and even Cousin R noticed his sudden change in behaviour when Toro was not about for the whole of last week. Yesterday though he made his presence known for a short time with the family and then went off again to sit by the window. I would have to see if he is still as outwardly affectionate as before when Toro is back home.
