Cat for Adoption: Toffle
Ed’s note: Toffle found a new home!
The 1-month-old Toffle was born to a stray mother along the banks of the Sumida River. His chances of survival would have been about 25 percent had the kind homeless man caring for the mother not alerted ARK to the new arrivals. Oblivious to the sad fate that could well have awaited him, Toffle and his siblings were taken in and are currently in foster care in Tokyo. Their mother has been spayed and returned to her Sumidagawa caregiver. Toffle is a boy’s boy. He’ll play till he drops, but before he drops, he likes to come for a cuddle. He is not a fussy kitten and is quite happy to do his own thing or find a quiet space for a snooze. Along with Toffle, ARK has 11 other kittens — ginger, gray, white, black, long-hair, short-hair — including three Scottish folds. All are looking for homes. The kittens will be ready for adoption in early July. Reservations are welcome!
