Kittens? KITTENS!

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.Image title

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.Image title

Foxy a tabby girl with a soft white belly. She looks curious. Do we have a troublemaker in the making?Image titleAnd the brother: Fix, a tabby boy. I bet he will get blamed for the trouble Foxy causes.Image title

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.Image title

Umi is the tortise of the group. Not that she is slow, she just tortise colored.Image title

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.Image title

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.

Ever since I was a kid, we had cats and dogs growing up and now I can't live without at least one purr ball running around my house. My current purr ball was a stray on the streets near my house. He doesn't let being blind in one eye slow him down. My job, besides playing with my cat or taking him on walks...on a leash...outside, is teaching English.
