Naraha and Tomioka, Fukushima. Torajiro at a checking point.
I can feel autumn here. It is not gorgeous, but tender.
This area is close to the old Tomioka checking point. Some volunteers made a feeding point a bit far from private houses. They rescued many adult cats and kittens. At the beginning, I thought if we could protect all mother cats, it is done. But there were no feeding points around this area, so many hungry cats started to gather at this place. This feeding point is under the grasses. We also continue the rescue activity.
This day, I captured a male brown tabby. Still one nursing female which I released is there. Footing is bad and I almost fell down, but continued to haul the stuff around.
A cricket jumps into the water. I always put a stick or grass on the bowl and give cricket the route to get out. The other day, I saw someone was doing same like me. I was happy to know that.
The cats that we found near the checking point (Kenmon) are named Kenta or Monta. I can’t think about another name. So this time, I give the name of Torajiro.
Torajiro, brown tabby, Male. Around 5 years old.(estimate) HIV+
Still now, he is a bit tense, but maybe he belongs to someone. Anybody know this cat?
I thank all the volunteers who bring food to the feeding points. I have a favor to ask. As you know, sometimes the food boxes are turned upside down by raccoons or wild boar. In one feeding point, which was in someone’s house, someone bound the food box to the bar of the shutter. But it was destroyed by something with powerful strength. Maybe wild boar. The power of animals is beyond our imagination. Some residents accept the setting of food boxes. But that doesn’t mean we can just do anything on their land. Please imagine how they feel when they see it. We should get permission even if it looks unused or broken. I am sorry to tell you this but I hope to get your understating.
