The regal Sonia is believed to be largely Abyssinian. Slim and sleek at just over 4 kg, Sonia turns 6 this year and only came to ARK last month due to her owner’s illness. Unsurprisingly, she is finding shelter life extremely stressful. The Abyssinian is a noble breed that usually translates to a noble bearing, and it certainly does with Sonia. She is what would be described as a cat person’s cat. True to the breed, she has a low tolerance for annoyance. She is very affectionate, but on her own terms. A person who loves cats will realize the depths of her emotions and respect her. In return, they will be loved as only cat people understand. Love me true, love me first. True nobility is recognizable to those who themselves possess it.

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