About Tanuki

Tanuki stays under the blanket on my couch all the time unless he gets up to eat, use the catbox or his scratching pad. Mostly this is done in the late evening or wee hours of the morning and he’ll do it about 6 times, but during the day he’s under the blanket. If the blanket falls off he goes under the couch. That’s where I usually find him in the morning so I just lift the couch and snuggle him for a bit then put him back under the blanket. He does let you lift him up, but it takes quite a bit for him to get to the trust to let you.

He has thick, rich hair and loves to rubbed from his head to his butt then run your hand back again, lifting his hair right up to his nose. He snuggles his head into your hand and enjoys the under the chin and around the ears scratches very much but only for so long. I’ve gotten one belly scratch with him so far and he loved it!

When he comes out to eat etc, he’ll not come close to you but once he’s done his thing and is under the table, you can slowly go under the table and give him some rubs again.

He’s very quiet. His purr and his meow is really quiet for such a big cat!

If you rush too quickly to lift off the blanket or pick him up, he will hiss at you but he’s not aggressive at all.

He really just likes to be left alone, come and give him some love a few times a day for short periods, then cover him back up again.

He’s a love and would be good for someone who doesn’t want a demanding cat that is at their feet every time they open a fridge or cupboard door hahaha.

The Story Behind Tanuki

He was a transfer from an overcrowded shelter
