|Health||Chronic Nasal Congestion|
|Status||Adopt or Foster|
Banjo was emaciated and close to death when he was rescued from a stray cat colony in Kobe. A severe upper respiratory infection had taken its toll on his little body as he desperately fought to survive. It has been a long and hard-won battle for him to regain his health, but with good nutrition, medication, and loving care, Banjo is now doing much better. Banjo does continue to experience episodes of nasal congestion from time to time, but we expect that these will decrease as he grows stronger.
Banjo can sometimes be a bit shy with strangers and it can take some time to fully gain his trust. Banjo can be a very friendly kitty once he realizes that he is safe. Banjo's sweet and gentle demeanor wins over the hearts of everyone he meets, and he has become a favourite with the shelter volunteers. Banjo is currently staying at the JCN shelter in Tokyo, but can be available for foster care or adoption in other parts of Japan.
