Padiu is a grey and white “purebred” Chinese shorthair cat. He was raised by me, a manga artist, in my studio. I originally wanted to raise him to be an artistic little cat, but a series of ridiculous events occurred: he peed on my manuscripts, chewed on my cables, ripped up my stuff, caught a grasshopper… We grew together and became like an inseparable family. This is the diary of Padiu and me. It may seem normal, but this is the story of our growth.
