Odairi is a lovable tabby who had to be given up when his owner became ill. A “dignified and mature cat” at 12 years old, Odairi is currently in foster care and, after losing his best feline friend, is in serious need of some love and lots of one-on-one attention.

“He’s a calm, non-destructive cat that loves daytime naps,” says his foster dad. “He’s also very talkative and loves having conversations.”

Odairi would make a great friend for someone living alone, but would be very happy to get to know anyone who is able to shower him with love and attention, some brushing and, oh yes, the occasional matatabi treat.

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