"And they lived happily ever after !"

Hello to you, dear animal lovers ! Today, we want to share with you some feedbacks we received from our former residents' new mommy.


    Our two sisters got adopted together last year at our Inawashiro Shelter. Thanks to this, they found a warm house and a loving family environment. Here is the message their sweet mom sent us, which makes us smile every time we read it.


"Cocoa and Shima are both happy and healthy. Neither cat loves to be carried (much to my girls' dismay), but they are friendly, affectionate cats who plop down on any lap that presents itself. They love to be around people --including any repairmen that happen to come into the house!-- and are very happy frolicking with each other. Cocoa is a voracious eater --she loves fishy wet food, while Shima is much more dainty, and prefers chicken-based wet food. We definitely made the right choice at the shelter last winter !

I'm attaching a few photos of the cats. And yes, they do move from that end of the couch, but it does seem to be their favorite spot in the house (besides the sunny windowsill)."


Thank you for these delightful news. But most of all, thank you for giving them a new chance, a new life. We wish the same will happen to all our furry friends.
