Cat for Adoption: Mila
Mila is a 12-year-old tortoiseshell and, in the words of the shelter staff, she’s ‘‘dynamite.’’ That means you won’t find a nicer cat. Friendly, sweet, interested in people, Mila was hit by a car and came to ARK nine years ago. Nine long years in the shelter, which, though safe, is nothing near the same as a loving home. Unfortunately, Mila is afraid of other cats, so has had to live alone for many years. When a staff member comes to the cage, she will jump on his or her shoulders, so happy is she to have someone with her. Oddly, Mila can hold her own with dogs, but her greatest love is people. Mila is sure to adapt to a new home quickly. She is in Tokyo and hoping someone out there will give this dear and charming older cat a home of her own.
