Success Story: Koharu and Chika
The Japan Times and Tokyo ARK have given Angels with Fur kind permission to reprint notices regarding pet adoptions (see: potential pets who have been featured on the Angels with Fur site). In addition to requests for adoption, they also publish success stories about pets who find new homes. Here is the latest success story.
The Flannery boys show off their recently adopted kittens. Matt Flannery (left) holds Koharu and Tim cuddles Chika. Koharu and Chika, featured in the Japan Times on November 17, were found thrown out in a rubbish pile when they were only two weeks old. A friend of the Flannerys saw the kittens’ photo in the paper and, knowing the family was looking for a kitten, cut out the photo box and dropped it in their mail box. The very same day, the Flannerys, who reside in Tokyo’s Minato Ward, came to visit the kittens and decided they wanted to adopt them both. The whole Flannery clan has now fallen in love with the new members of the family. They are two kittens quite different in personality. Koharu enjoys sitting serenely, while Chika prefers charging around the house. Still, the sisters are never far away from each other. They have been through a lot together, but they’ve made it out in great shape. ARK and the Japan Times would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the Flannerys for giving the girls a home.
