Kittens in Fukushima
This is one room in our shelter for storage. Can you guess what these are?
In Fukushima, the situation has changed. Most of the houses and barns are now homes for rats. They can get into anywhere that has even a tiny crack.
So now, at most feeding points, we took the food boxes from inside, and set them outside. Out there, we have to think about the rain.
These strange things are food boxes with a roof. This roof came from a shelf in the shelter. Our carpenter made so many shelves, and the remnants became the roof.
This is not very strong. So the wild animals will eventually destroy it. But it can be good for a while.
Nursing cats come into the cage sometimes. But recently, I don’t see so many kittens. Maybe they have been attacked by enemies, or have no safe place to eat. For kittens, 10cm from the ground is maximum. If it is higher than that, the kitten can’t eat.
This is a kitten that came into the capture cage the other day at a feeding point. It looks like it's about 1.5 months old. I saw a mother cat (maybe) but couldn’t see brothers or sisters. Maybe they were attacked by predators.
It is scared without mother.
Don’t be angry. We'll make you happy.
These kitten brothers have also came to the feeding point with their mother. They also look to be 1.5 months old. The kittens we rescue are very thin and sickly. I couldn’t capture their mother, and then the time is over. Next time, I will come again to capture her.
In the 20km area, this is a house for people who got to know each other through dogs and cats. Their roses were so beautiful, we took pictures of them. But always before I send the pictures, the season has changed.
