Maaya was found living in a broken-down house along the coast of Iwate, in an area that was heavily impacted by the tsunami. At the time, she was still wearing a pink collar, and we suspect she may have been living in the ruins of her former home. Sadly, in the years since, no one has stepped forward to claim Maaya, and it is possible her family did not survive the tsunami.
Maaya is a lovely and friendly little girl. She is always eager for company, and she will often jump into bed with the volunteers in the morning and let them know just how much she missed them during the night! Maaya just loves any kind of attention, and always wants to be everyone's best friend. If she has something to say, she will definitely let you know. Maaya loves to eat, so she needs daily exercise - Her favourite work-out involves pouncing and swatting at the nearest fishing rod toy. After play time , a good brushing is always most appreciated! Maaya is currently staying in a foster home in Tokyo, but can be available for adoption in other parts of Japan.
