Blanco came to ARK as a kitten last June with his siblings. Most of his brothers and sisters were adopted quickly but Blanco got passed over. He just didn't seem to time it right when prospective owners came by: He'd be too sleepy to snap to attention or so engrossed in play that he didn't jump to entertain his visitors.

What an attitude. Now just over a year old, Blanco and his brother Azu are still in need of a home. We think Blanco's perfect for reminding people of the feline allure. When life gets too stressful and when the demands are too many, that's the time to call a timeout, chill, kick back, put your feet up. The rest can wait, surely.

Blanco, at least, would agree.

If you are interested in adopting Blanco, please email ARK at [email protected] or call 050-1557-2763 Monday to Saturday (bilingual) for more information.
