The Cat That Feels At Home With Its Dog ‘Brothers’

A Japanese couple lived with three dogs for years. They are all Shibas, going by Saki, Ibuki, and Hazuki. The wife always wished that one day they would own a cat though the husband was not for it.

She went ahead to look for a cat breed that got along with dogs. They eventually found one that was grey, short-haired, with upright ears.
They named the American Shorthair they got from a Kanagawa breeder Kiki.

The kitten took to the Shibas to the extent of acting like them. The four became friends. This was proved when another dog barked at Kiki at a Shiba Inu celebration, and Saki responded with a bark in Kiki’s defense.

The four pets are usually spotted together in the outdoors or indoors. They are also very photogenic. At home, the Shibas are quiet, so Kiki rests peacefully.

Kiki tends to be a little active before sleeping at night, then sleeps in the bedroom with the couple. The owner observes that Kiki sleeps through the night with the rest of them and never disturbs them in the early morning.

This is different from what they had been told about cats. That they are early risers who could get everyone up by 4am.
