Sachinoka was born this spring to a stray and rescued along with her four brothers and sisters. Calicos are often strong personalities, and Sachinoka was no exception. Having been born wild, she was not one to warm to humans, and had a natural sense of caution and the savvy that survival on the streets demands. ARK staff feared the little kitten would have a hard time getting used to humans. She was on guard the moment people appeared. In Tokyo foster care, however, the close human contact served to speed up the acclimatization process. In six short weeks, Sachinoka has conquered her fear and, though still shy, is now no longer running to hide. She has come to actually seek out human companionship, especially when people are linked to food, glorious food! It’s her weakness, and mealtimes are key to making Sachinoka butter in your hands.
