The Sanzo party found a kitten on the forest, when they noticed that Sanzo sneezed too much. Since they cannot take the kitten alone on the forest, they wanted to take it with them, but Sanzo sneezes too much and stated that he hates cat when he looks at their fur. The kitten later approaches Sanzo and expressed its affection to him, revealing Sanzo is very scared to the kitten.
The three of the Sanzo party decided to take it with them and named it. Goku suggested Fluffy and Hakkai suggested Calico while Gojyo suggested Betty, ignoring Sanzo at the room. In heaven, Kanzeon Bosatsu suggested Daigoro. Back to the Sanzo party, the kitten was sneezing making the three of them run over the room making Sanzo wondered. Next, the kitten was rubbing its eyes, as the three run over the room to find somewhere for it to sleep. Lastly, Goku thought that it wanted to go to the toilet, when they run over again securing the room and making the kitten comfortable, when Sanzo said that they are on his own room. The three then decided where the kitten will be staying.
For the whole night, Sanzo can't sleep well because of the kitten which keeps on entering in his room while Sanzo keeps on giving it back to the three. Next morning, the three were going for shopping, leaving the cat to him. Despite of his allergies, Sanzo still cares for the kitten. He even boiled milk for it; the kitten even passed the matches to Sanzo. Later, the kitten was almost spilled by the boiling milk, when it jumps to Sanzo, making Sanzo worried.
