Cat for Adoption: Hina
Ed’s note: Hina has found a new home!
Hina is a 6-year-old green-eyed beauty. Found living in a park, she was taken in by a kind couple who could not bear to see her left vulnerable and exposed to all sorts of weather and dangers. A very peaceful cat, Hina likes quiet places and though she loves people, prefers not to be held and does not take well to other cats. Because of the latter, she has been kept in a small pen at ARK, which must be stressful for her. Hina really is the perfect cat for someone who works long hours but would like to have a warm, furry friend to come home to. She does suffer from a slight lung condition that causes people to turn away despite it being no cause for alarm. It is but a slight cough that can be held at bay with a mere ¥10 worth of medicine a day and, more importantly, a shelter from life’s storms.
