News from Inawashiro Shelter !

You must be wondering what happened these days at the shelter, right ? Here is some news of our little friends.


    Mizu was still really shy since he joined room C, hiding as soon as he heard the door opening... But when you take some time and try to befriend him, you can make it. Kei, one of our chinese volunteer, already managed to make a connexion with him. But now our new french volunteer, Laura, told us that he came a couple of time to take a nap on her knees, having some cuddles.

    About his good friend Tsuki, she still does not allow people to touch her without food offering ! But she is still a dynamic kitty who loves to play with the volunteers or the other cats and running around in the room.

    Cats in Room B are having little fights sometimes. Martin, for example, loves to run after Judi who doesn't really enjoy this kind of game. But despite those tiny things, everything seems to be fine. Everyone get accustomed little by little to the new faces who take care of them, trying sometimes to come closer. Nana even let herself pet.

But all our cats are still full of love and waiting patiently for they fur-ever home ♥
