A cat from Tomioka-machi re-united with it's owner
A Himalayan cat was rescued in Tomioka-machi by a volunteer. We helped her to find it's owner. We couldn’t find the owner for 6 months. Eventually we found a very good host family instead. While this Himalayan had to stay at TNR Japan Animal Welfare Hospital, the host family visited TNR very often, as if to take care of their child.
Eventually the owner found our blog, and contacted us. In fact this Himalayan is 16 years old! We discussed this with the host family, and decided to return it to the owner. The owner is a mother and her daughter. The daughter has moved to an apartment that can accept cats.
On December 12th, the owner came.
The Himalayan's head touches the owner’s hand...
...stares at the face...
...continues staring at the face while in her arms.
Let’s start a new life!
The rescued pets suffer damaged health. But more than that, they have severe stress, so far from their owners. This Himalayan enjoys some relief, and thrives.
We are very sorry for the host family. We surely appreciate their understanding.
Many people involved with one small life is the reason this Himalayan could return to it's family.
