This week we said goodbye to two long term volunteers.
We recently said farewell to two long term volunteers, Ben (from France) and Miriam (from Germany).
Miriam helped coax our most camera shy cats out of their hiding places for photographer Martina to capture their portraits for our updated cat profiles. She also fixed and maintained our (very vital) shelter bicycles... and then cycled every cycle-path in the Inawashiro area!
Addy and Cha Cha will especially miss Miriam as she took them on long, adventurous morning walks along various different routes. They even liked her after she gave them a bath!
Ben was the chief architect of our new improved cat walkways. Days of designing, measuring, cutting and sanding were followed by construction. When complete, Ben had upgraded Cat Room C to have a wrap-around walkway throughout the whole room, and had built the “cat tree jungle” in Cat Room A.
We thank Ben and Miriam and wish them all the best. They leave with new furry friends, new memories, and the satisfaction of knowing that the work they did for all the animals in our shelter will last forever.
Japan Cat Network was recently invited to open a booth at an event at Comaya Cafe, in Inawashiro.
So, what comes of hanging out on a French CHAT site? Only good, my feline friends. Only good. #icantunderstandaword #ihavenoknees #grapefruit

Freya was rescued close to the Fukushima shelter two weeks ago. Today she starts life in her fur-ever home.
