History: Kanji was born in a breeding facility in Miami, where he lived with his mother until she became ill. We were contacted by the breeder to help to hand raise Kanji while his mother recuperated. He was hand raised with the intent of returning him to the facility. Fortunately, for us, the breeder decided to allow Kanji to stay with us permanently! He is now experiencing adolescence, with the resulting hormone fluctuation and as this leads to personality problems, as with rebellious teenagers,Kanji lives alone.
