Other times, pets choose their people. That's the case of our third cat or kitten (子猫). An acquaintance's (知り合い) daughter developed a cat allergy and he needed to get rid of his kitten. It was either the shelter or us. So we took in the young male bengal tiger-striped Scottish fold with open arms and re-named him Monchiくん.
Why Monchiくん? Well, with his long, curly tail and tucked-in ears, he resembles a monkey at times (時々). And "Monchichi means happiness," right?
So we hope that Monchiくん has a long happy life alongside his older sister Tamaちゃん and older brother Mashuくん).
