Tanaka is a Siamese.. nuff said! He is not nice, but that is what is so endearing about him. The older he gets the funnier his bad attitude is. We love him no matter how many times he tries to rip our arm off for no reason!! :) You would only believe it if you saw it... but if I sing "The sun will come out Tanaka, bet your bottom dollar that Tanaka ... they'll be sun. Just thinking about Tanaka ... " he rolls over plays nice for a few minutes before he realizes that isn't cool. BTW: sitting in this box is super cool!
