Her name is Hana-chan. She has perfectly round eyes and panda-patterned fur. Her tail is really straight and her paw pads are pink. She’s fairly quiet, and once she gets used to people, they can cuddle her. She’s a very cute kitten.
In Chiyoda-ku, with the cooperation of ward administrators, residents and those working in the area, a TNR (trap, neuter, release) program for stray cats is taking place, called Chiikineko or Neighborhood Cats. We are a volunteer group helping out with this program.
Hana-chan was born in an office area of Chiyoda-ku. Her mother was a cat that local people had been feeding (after the birth, the mother was spayed and became a Neighborhood Cat). Because there was a lot of traffic in that area and they were in danger of being hit by a car, we took Hana-chan and two siblings into care. We are now looking for foster parents.
She’s had a health check and seems to be in good shape. She eats well and used the bathroom regularly. Her tests for viruses, feline AIDS and leukemia have all come back negative. She’s also been checked for fleas and other skin and internal parasites. Her first vaccinations have also been taken care of. She’s potty trained. We’d like to find a family that wants an indoor cat that they can love and take responsibility for forever. Once we’ve met and the placement has been decided, we’ll be happy to bring her to your home. We’d prefer someone in the Tokyo area, but we’ll also consider someone living in the suburbs. Before rehoming her, we will take care of her second vaccination and her spaying.
