Tanaka enjoys sleeping inside my blanket.
Tanaka is now more relaxed with Popps and Akira, although not any less vigilant of Akira. He is now able to lie in the middle of the living room and Popps can walk by without him being fixated on her. He does have conversations with Akira in the morning from outside Akira's room but Akira would no longer be in hiding from him. She would sometimes tell him off (yell in his face) or just sit a little further away from him. Once when she was on the couch and he was walking from the computer room to the bedroom, she flew at him screaming. He was so shocked that he jumped in fright. Even Popps ran into the kitchen in fear.
However, it had taken him a long time to figure out his role in the household. Below are his conversations with Fern.
Tanaka was very sweet. He enjoyed the healing and curled up comfortably. He said he started to get used to the change of having a new family member and the new arrangement.
Tanaka was funny and loving. He talked more today and said I was going to make him fall asleep during healing! He was cheerful and optimistic, which made me happy. He jumped off when we were done.
