Cielo, was found living in a trash-filled garage in rural Tochigi,  where she desperately tried protect her babies from their hostile human neighbours by hiding her little ones in a nearby dumpster.  Local rescuers initially pulled four babies from the trash, and two of the kittens were placed in the care of local families.  Efforts were then made to locate a trap to rescue their mother.  A brave and determined mother, Cielo anxiously watched from afar, and when the opportunity arose, she slipped back into the the rescuer's home through an open window and returned her remaining two babies to the dumpster.  After a long and harrowing week of trying to save the little family, JCN volunteers were able to rescue mom Cielo, and babies, Sol and Luna, and bring them to our Tokyo shelter.

After realizing she and her little ones were finally safe, Cielo began to relax and show us her friendly and affectionate nature. She is a loving and gentle cat that would do so well in a home of her own.  Cielo is currently staying in a foster home in Kanagawa, but can be available for adoption in other parts of Japan.
