Iwaki-city in Fukushima
On October 6th, I went to the gas station at Iwaki Chuo Interchange to release the cats. But when I returned, I brought back new cats.
It was the gas station people’s friend's house. The story was like this. A cat gave birth on a balcony and had 3 kittens, but they were attacked by a civet. The cats were gone for a while, but came back one by one. 2 kittens had injuries on their legs, and the mother was bleeding from her leg. The people put some blanketx there, but the mother had a miscarriage.
It happened while I was there. I brought three of them back before it was too late, but worried about one more kitten. 2 kittens will be fine. The mother is still in dangerous condition. I am still worried about 1 more kitten.
Amazingly this mother is only 2.5kg. She looks like a kitten. But she was taking care of 2 month-old kittens and, ,pregnant. She was about 8 months old, but she fought an enemy to protect her babies. Then miscarriage.......
She had an operation in the TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, and at the same time she had sterilization。
This small one is the mother. The scar from the operation is about 1cm, and hardly noticeable.
There were some wounds and internal hemorrhaging from animal bites.
But she will be fine. She was being fed by people, and likes people. We will find their new family through our donation event.
I really wish one more kitten would come back.
It surprised me that there are so many wild animals in Fukushima. As they have so much green, there is so much life there. Surviving is hard In this difficult natural setting, especially for a kitten.
