Catch up with what's been happening at the JCN Shelter
The past few weeks at the JCN shelter have been great! The weather seems to be getting warmer, the dogs and cats are full of energy and so are the volunteers. We said goodbye to three incredible volunteers last month - Karol, Judith & Rai-Lee. JCN misses them already. We wish them the very best for their future adventures!
Yumi & Cassie had to visit the vet last month but they're doing so much better now – thanks everyone for your love.
Lately, we've received a number of donations from people all around Japan, for which we are so very thankful.
Hiromi Tawara San sent us several towels as well as big comfy blankets for the volunteers and kitties to stay warm during the cold days.
Lee DC Atkin ordered two huge bags of our kitty's favourite brand of dry food.
We also got a big box of household supplies, treats, cages and towels from Setagaya.
Thank you everyone once again for your donations! We truly appreciate your generosity and support.
To make things even better, we had visitors this weekend. Thank you Laurie Burrow for bringing along your friends to socialize with the cats. The kitties and volunteers both love having company. We hope to have more visitors regularly dropping by.You too can help us run the shelter by donating at japancatnetwork.org/donate.
Even the smallest donation makes a huge difference.
Room B at JCN houses the shy, less social cats. Some of these cats have special needs that require additional care. You can choose to contribute to their improvement by being their monthly sponsor. You will receive regular updates about the cat(s) you sponsor and will always know exactly how your donation is being used.
Good tips from the Sacramento Bee Pets column, on helping your pets extend and enjoy their elder years. Also, if you read down to the Buzz section about the Million Cat, we'd just like to add: Challenge accepted! :-)
We need your help to look after our sick cats
As some of you might remember, Claude and Peanut from JCN Inawashiro were adopted in November last year. Here's a sneak peak into their new lives as Nikko (Claude) and Durin (Peanut) from their mommy, Shweta Verleker.
See our 3 youngster kittens play in what our clever volunteers created! Nice sketches- Marie and Jack!
