As we all know, it's not rare for someone of great talent, great heart — great just about everything — to be passed over simply because the timing wasn't right or those doing the picking weren't. In Nakamun's case, he did find that right person, almost. Nakamun came to ARK as a kitten, and even though he was a fantastic fellow — incredibly friendly, full of love for people and other cats, with no problems whatsoever and of rare beauty — he too was passed over. Finally, what seemed like a match made in heaven was achieved, but allergies raised their ugly heads and his new owners were forced to bring Nakamun back. Understandably, they cried a river. So, Nakamun, now 10 months old, is back and ready to be scooped up by one very lucky person, even a first-time owner. So, step right up, folks, and get it while you can!

If you are interested in adopting Nakamun, email ARK at [email protected] or call 050-1557-2763 Monday to Saturday (bilingual) for more info. Tokyo ARK is an NPO founded by Elizabeth Oliver.
