A box of kittens, now that's an unusual package to find in the morning.
This morning our volunteers woke up to a box of 8 kittens on our doorstep. These poor abandonded babies needed to see a vet; today. A friend of one our volunteers, Yacchi, was available and wonderful enough to drive a couple volunteers and the kittens to the vet. THANK YOU YACCHI!! At the vet, taking turns chilling in the box and being examined.
These sweet babies are sick and seem to be only a month old. We believe they are from two different litters and for their sake we have them seperated into two family groups. Please meet the Tabby Family:
Bucchan a white and tabby girl. She looks none to happy, but she's not feeling well.
Lola another white and tabby girl. She seems the most ill, poor thing.
Foxy a tabby girl with a soft white belly. She looks curious. Do we have a troublemaker in the making?And the brother: Fix, a tabby boy. I bet he will get blamed for the trouble Foxy causes.
Next is the Night Family.
First up is Loki. He's all dressed up for a night on the town.
Ninja is ready to sneak around all night, well he will be once he is healthy.
Umi is the tortise of the group. Not that she is slow, she just tortise colored.
Lastly is a nod to the driver. Yachhi thank you again for your help in saving these kittens. This boy is named after you: Yacchi.
As always anything you can share with us be it a 500 yen or 500,000 yen or anything in between will be appreciated. These kittens will need food, and when older enough, vaccines and neutering. They have had a rough start to life. From here it can only get better but we need your support.
In order to thank our amazing volunteers, we have started introducing them to you. Today, one of our ex-volunteers is here to tell you about her time at the shelter. Laura volunteered at JCN Inawashiro for 7 months, putting her name in our list of long-term volunteers.
