Tao has always been an odd sort of chap. But that’s why we love him!
He’s never been much of a fan of humans, but over the past couple of months he’s grown as an individual to the point where he’s happy to tolerate a moderate level of human affection in approximately 20 minute windows either side of meal times. And if it’s a good meal, you may even be fortunate enough to hear him purr.
Don’t get me wrong though! He is a loving cat. He just shows it in his own special ways. There’s the love bite, the love scratch, the love growling and my personal favourite – the love spew.
But here’s the real joy of Tao. If you want his respect you have to earn it, and remain worthy of it. And things that are hard to obtain are always the ones that are truly worth having.
