Cat Rescue In Japan

My favorite Taiga Drama remains the 2000 production, "Aoi Tokugawa," and when I first traveled to Japan I wanted to visit Zozoji Temple, site of the Tokugawa Mausoleum.

I remember passing through the gates, noticing the pine tree planted by Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th President of the United States, and then seeing a cat - a friendly orange feline with a curled tail. It followed us toward the temple.

I looked around, wondering where the cat had come from. Where there houses nearby? Who did the cat belong to?

Well... I have come to Japan many, many times since then. I have seen a lot of cats and I gather there is a problem here regarding stray animals. Cats are dear to my heart and my own six felines are all rescues.

In the past I volunteered at a cat rescue organization in the USA, but now I want to help homeless cats in Japan. I make a monthly donation to the Japan Cat Network, located in Fukushima, but a Google search will yield results for many such organizations in Japan. If you would like to help, I hope you will check them out. Here's hoping all my feline friends find safe and loving homes!
