Please cuddle: a cat named Rikka

Although he may not look it, Rikka is a real sweetheart. He wants to cuddle, to love and be loved, but for nearly a year now, his life has been the relatively cold world of the shelter. It’s not the place for a handsome puss like this, and Rikka would be the first to agree. This 8-year-old looker is stressed and yearning for a warm home of his own, especially one with people, whom he loves, and preferably not too many cats. Rikka tries to tell everyone who visits that he wants desperately to go home with them. He runs over and brushes up against them in an unabashed outpouring of affection. But, so far, the message is just not getting through. Rikka is still waiting. Waiting for someone who will hear his plea.

If you are interested in adopting Rikka, email ARK at Tokyoark@arkbark.net or call 050-1557-2763 Monday to Saturday (bilingual) for more information.
