Kittens for Adoption: Sarah, Sion, Moomooki, Minky
Here are (clockwise from bottom left) Sarah, Sion, Moomooki and Minky. They are now 2 months old (pictured at 6 weeks) and are four of the 12 kittens at ARK currently looking for homes. For now they are able to snuggle together, safe and content as innocent new life should be. These, unfortunately, are only the lucky ones, those of the discarded and abandoned that have gotten a chance at a life. They will not be among the 1,000 animals put down every day at pounds throughout Japan. A tiny number to be sure, but surely each life saved, each life cherished and nurtured in a caring home, is a bright light in the darkness, a blow against the apathy. Please, strike a blow.
