Freya the kitten finds fur-ever home

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

Freya the kitten was found in a car park close to our Fukushima shelter 2 weeks ago. She was underweight, dirty and obviously unwell, so our volunteers took her back to the shelter to feed and clean her. Soon they took her to the vet, who gave her drops for her eyes, ears and nose as well as treatment for tics on her skin.

After lots of love and attention from the volunteers, Freya was soon happy, healthy and very playful! Wonderfully, a lovely lady saw a photo of Freya and asked to give her a fur-ever home. Great news for everybody! On Friday Freya was transported back to Tokyo by volunteers - it was her first ever bus journey and she miaowed a lot! Cher, the shelter manager, took Freya home for a few nights of recuperation. Freya also went for another checkup at the vet and tested negative for FIV/FeLV. She just needs a few more days of eye/ear/nose drops to help with her cold. After the cold clears up she will have her vaccinations and, of course, neutering when appropriate.

Freya's sweet personality has already melted the heart of Cher's daughter, but everyone is very happy that Freya will now live her life in a loving fur-ever home. Here at Japanese Cat Network we are always looking for fosterers and adopters for our animals; they all have their own individual and quirky characters, and all deserve the love and affection of a fur-ever home. Please do get in contact with us to find out more.
