Akiko shares that her grandpa had forgotten how to smile. His once vibrant spirit dulled by illness and a forced retirement. She recalls,

“The doctor said he was sick. The once outgoing man gradually lost his interest in life and became even grumpier than ever. It was around that time that I bought Kinako to live with us.”

At first, Kinako was a bit reserved, but he quickly recognized the pain in Jiji’s heart. Offering his warm purrs and affectionate cuddles, Kinako became Jiji’s personal therapy cat

In a heartwarming twist, this timid kitten chose Jiji as his favorite human and started following him everywhere.

“An extraordinary friendship gradually grew between the two. Who would have thought that a timid kitten would befriend a grumpy old man!”
