Cats for Adoption: Ryota and Memina
Ryoto (left) and his sister, Memina, were abandoned in a basket at the tender age of 1 month and have been together ever since at the ARK shelter. They are now in Tokyo with the hope of finding a home together. A striking pair to look at, their personalities are strikingly different as well, yet complement each other perfectly. The tortoiseshell Memina is cuddly and affectionate, while all-black Ryoto, though also very affectionate, is more outgoing and assertive. Memina’s favorite place to sit is on your lap, while Ryoto would prefer to tackle and ‘‘kill’’ his toys. Both kittens adore people and will make wonderful pets. At 11 months, they are house-trained, well-behaved, and healthy, yet still have the joyful air of kittens about them. As a pair, Ryoto and Memina would be good in any home, even a busy one, because with each other they would surely be happy and content. Won’t you please help keep them together?
