Description

Shi-chan was rescued from a restricted evacuated area in Fukushima, along with her three kittens, all of whom have since been adopted.  She was originally brought back to the shelter after having been attacked by a predator.  Shi-chan is a very sweet and affectionate kitty who loves to cuddle.  She craves attention and makes sure she is always right next to someone in hopes that they will offer her a pet or, better yet, a snuggle! 

Shi-chan has been diagnosed with FIV, which means that she has a weakened immune system.  Although Shi-chan is doing very well, careful attention must be paid to good eating habits and dental issues to ensure that she stays healthy for a long time. FIV is not transmissible to humans, and is primarily transferred from cat to cat via bite wounds acquired during cat fights.  Despite her diagnosis, this sweet little girl deserves a chance at the life in a home that she has been waiting to get for so long.  Shi-chan is currently staying at the JCN shelter in Kyoto, but can be available for foster care or adoption in other parts of Japan.
