For this trip, one volunteer came with me to Fukushima. She drove all the way. She was more physically tired than me, but I was mentally and emotionally exhausted.
This time, we left the plastic and Styrofoam boxes at feeding points. We always lose the duel of wits with crows and raccoon dogs. They are clever enough to open plastic bags. This time, we opened the bag and left the food in the plastic box.
The Styrofoam is easy for wild animals to destroy, so we often leave food in the houses of the owners who are looking for their own cats. It's also easier to carry that way.
We can use this for a food box, and also put the blanket inside to use as a bed.
It would surely look strange to be loading styrofoam boxes and plastic boxes full of holes in the car. What shall I do if someone asks “What is this?”
If someone sees the big plastic bag with all the cat food, and says “This is for animals, isn’t it?”, what shall I answer? This always gives me a headache........
