And now, a time-lapse video of cat's busy day.

More cats. Some are rude and crass, you have been warned.

TOKU


meaning: sincere, serious

篤学 == tokugaku == (noun, adjective that takes な) love of learning
危篤 == kitoku == (noun) critical illness, on the verge of death




Bottom radical is 'horse' (馬). Top radical is 'bamboo' (竹). This character has been borrowed to express its current meanings. Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Sincere horse serious about bamboo.'
