Brenna Telaroli first saw Mokou when he was an ailing 8-week-old kitten. Mokou required immediate surgery since she was born with a significant umbilical chord hernia. But Telaroli knew she would sacrifice anything for him the moment she laid eyes on his stunning blue eyes.
Now that she is fully healed, Mokou is a character, which Telaroli may find a bit challenging to manage while she works from home.
“For starters, he is a major talker,” Telaroli told The Dodo. “He has something to say about everything, including when I am at work trying to talk to customers.”
Mokou will do anything to distract his mom from work, and usually, he’s pretty successful. The less time his mom spends working, the more time she has to focus on him.
She said, “He likes to play; it is all he wants to do when awake. He is either rushing about the house like a lunatic or tossing his toys up in the air for others to catch.
He constantly supervises his mother and makes sure that everything she does is approved by him first, which doesn’t help. Telaroli stated, “He needs to always be where I am and watch what I am doing. “Mokou believes it needs his approval or he would have a meowing fit,” says the cat.
When his mom is on the computer, Mokou knows just how to get her attention — by grabbing the mouse. Mokou will play tug-of-war with the computer mouse as long as it takes to distract his mom.
And once he latches onto the mouse, he refuses to give it back.
Telaroli explained, “It’s him telling Mom to stop working and play with me or I’ll play with what you have until I get my way. There is no trying to divert him from his route once he has made up his mind.
When Telaroli stares into Mokou’s eyes, she feels compelled to take a break from her job even though he can be a rather annoying employee.
