Seeking Furever Home!

Kitten covered in mouse trap glue and left out in the rain to die is now happy and searching for a permanent home.

Nyanta, formerly Tigger, was found along an Osaka street, covered in mouse trap glue and left stuck to a towel. He would have died there in the rain, had it not been for the kind rescuer who, despite limited resources, got him quickly to a vet and began nursing him back to health. With the help of Japan Cat Network volunteers, the little kitten made his way to the homes of several different fosters and, with loving care, has become a thriving friendly ball of fun! He is healthy, playful, and loves sitting on laps. He is also good with dogs, and has made a doggie friend along the way! Nyanta has met a few adopters, but each time we thought he'd found his forever home, something prevented an adoption from going through. Currently in a foster home in Kyoto, he is available for adoption anywhere in the Kansai area. Please contact us if you are interested in welcoming Nyanta into your family!
