Parinko the Charmer


Parinko is very proud of his blue eyes and fluffy fur.
He joined ARK on a very cold day of February last year.
Originally living in a new apartment building that did not accept pets, he was sent out by his previous owner and had to endure the cold outside for about three months.

He was rescued by a neighbor, and because of his background he was back to being a stray cat by the time he arrived.
Trying to get near with your bare hands was too dangerous, he was hissing, biting and clawing everything that touched him, even toys from a distance. He was a very savage beast.

Even after 2 months, his face still looked like this.

As he had difficulties getting used to living in a wide room, we had to move him to a smaller one.
After that, it was only a matter of time until he understood what people were doing, and it slowly became possible to play and stroke him.

“Who are you talking about?”

Now he turned to be a very sweet boy who loved to be cuddled.
He starts purring as soon as people step in, and rubs his body against your legs.
He got used to his environment so well so that not only does he do that to our staff, but also to any volunteers and will gladly cuddle with them.

We are talking about you! “Hmm? Me?”

He has no problem living with his previous room-mate Karinto, but when we tried to put him with other cats, some fights were started. It might be a better idea for owners to have no other pets in the house.
He is not good with changes of environment, so it might take some time until he gets used to his new home. Once he got used to it though, he will be a very sweet and very understanding companion.
Usually cats who grew up in a house get used to a new house much faster that they would in a shelter.

You’re a sweet boy. “I know”

Living in one of the far rooms of ARK, it can be difficult to find him, and having the chance to watch him move can be rare. Please take a look at this video!


He can be so sweet and loving that the staff gets embarrassed.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want a cat who is both handsome and sweet!

A Sunday full of cats!

This week, our Sunday was all about rain.
Still, many potential adopters came to visit us from early in the morning.
Among the people who came, some of them had come to our adoption event “Full of Cats”. Thank you to everyone for spreading the word!

Today, we had 6 new ARK graduates!

Very cute, but also very reserved, Pluie never managed to get a lot of attention and grew up with us.
However, this time he got adopted by the same family who took Princess Amidala last month!
Pluie gets along really well with other cats, he should have no problem being a nice little brother♪
I haven’t bad breakfast yet...

Another family adopted Fujimaru, as well as Hachi with whom they fell in love during last week’s event.
“Oh, nice to meet you, I’m Hachi.” “I’m Fujimaru, how are you doing?”

At last week’s event, Kunak and Lina stuck together the entire day and tried hard to show how much they liked each other.
Today too, they were next to each other, sleeping in their cat house. While looking at them, we tried to find them a new family where they would be able to live together, and even though adopting two cats at once can be a tough decision, our dream came true♥
Kunak, Lina, that is some very good news for you two!

To continue, Cappe also left us for his new home, after being chosen during last week’s event.
From now on, every day will have some time spent on someone’s lap!

The family who had chosen to adopt Inaho last week decided to adopt one of our shier cats instead. Please, if somebody else is interested in living with Inaho, don’t hesitate to contact us♪
Luck is something you wait for while sleeping!

Finally, Java who took part in our event last week also found a new home on this Sunday♪
What? For real??

It has been a very busy Sunday, and for two weeks in a row, but this is the kind of happy-busy day I wish would happen every week!!
Our boys and girls are waiting for you at ARK, next week too, in two weeks as well, every week♪

There are many other animals waiting for a new home!
