On August 3, at only 4 weeks of age, Angelo and his 5 siblings,
were found outside a volunteer's house. Despite their small size, the
kittens were wild at first, and needed to be caught in a trap.
However these little ones quickly warmed up! Angelo is a lovely kitten
who loves human contact. He very much enjoys being cuddled and he is an
expert at sleeping on you. He also enjoys playing, and has a very sweet
personality. He will
be the perfect friend for humans, cats, or even children, as he is very
tender. Angelo was adopted in the Tokyo area on January 23, 2011, after
staying in a foster home
in Tokyo. JCN regularly
brings kittens and cats to
the Kanto area for adoption and fostering. Feel free to contact
us if you are interested in meeting available candidates.
1/29/11 - Just wanted to write a little update now that we've had the
babies for a week. We spent a few days getting to know them and changed
their names to fit them, Carrie is now Emi which means 'blessed with
beauty'. Angelo was a bit tougher but we decided on Kiyoshi which means
'quiet child'. Emi is doing wonderful, we can't sit down without having
her join us on our laps and she's even letting the boys hold her now
and again. Every night she's my little heater in bed and is the first
to bring me a toy to play with her. Kiyoshi took a bit longer to come
out of hiding. He's such a sweetheart with my husband and myself,
following us around (he likes to wrap himself around our legs!) and
sleeping with us at night. During the day he's still a bit leary of the
kids, the ones on 4 legs (the twins) he doesn't mind because he figured
out they can't move all that fast, but those 2 legged ones (the 4 and 3
yr old), they are just a bit too loud and fast for his liking. But he
is warming up, he'll come out and join us while they're around, he just
isn't too keen on them approaching him yet.
I've attached some pictures with Emi and Kiyoshi with the family
and in their favorite sleeping spots.
1/24/11 - They are utilizing the litter pan just fine (and no evidence
of upset tummies which I was concerned could happen). As the day wore
on they were both more then happy to be petted while in hiding (even
from the children) with Angelo purring up a storm and Carrie coming out
to greet us a couple of times, so the fact that they are allowing us to
approach them gives me hope that this will pass. They are both getting
a bit braver (now that it's bed time for the kids) and walking around
exploring a touch, Carrie even sat on my lap for a bit! I'm hoping that
we can get some nice pictures for you all by this weekend.
