Pupu, a 5 year old ginger girl is the second oldest kitty in her home. She is living with four other furry friends in a family that absolutely adores cats.

Pupu is very gentle, calm and friendly, but every now and then she likes to show off her quirky side to entertain the family. She likes to wipe the door with her paws after observing and learning how her humans slide it open. She wants to imitate that so she can get it open all by herself. She's tried and is very persistant. Though there has not been any success, her mom always gives her a pat on the back for good efforts.

Pupu is a brave kitty who was not afraid when the earthquake hit Japan. They live in Osaka which is far from the epicenter. Even so they felt a tremor. While one of Pupu's kitty friends took refuge in the closet right away, Pupu was calm and collected, standing on top of a rice cooker, surveying the room as if she was trying to make sure that everything was ok.

Pupu has become a little role model for the rest of the furry gang to look up to. Today Pupu and her family are praying from a distance to the people and animals affected in Japan.
