There’s nothing Aoi likes more than company. This shiny black beauty likes it, loves it, needs it. And if he doesn’t have what his heart cries out for, you will hear his mournful cry. It was Aoi’s desire to be with people that brought him to ARK last summer, when he followed a foster parent across a busy road and she took him home. Heaven for Aoi is filled with warmth and attention. Being ignored or alone is a personal purgatory. He’s a lot of cat, about 4 years old and over 6 kg. Cuddling him in your arms could be a workout, but as long as you give him what he longs for, he’ll be an angel. Be an angel. Please be there for Aoi.

If you are interested in adopting Aoi, email ARK at Tokyoark@arkbark.net or call 050-1557-2763 Monday to Saturday (bilingual) for more information. Tokyo ARK is an NPO founded by Briton Elizabeth Oliver. It is dedicated to rescuing and rehoming abandoned animals. All animals are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. Prospective owners are requested to undergo a screening process.
