Midori, who was supported by many wonderful sponsors, passed away on December 4th 2008.

chew up her paralyzed hind legs. She had to wear an Elizabeth collar constantly and had to receive antibiotic injections. In these conditions, we could no longer say that her quality of life was being maintained. After careful discussions with the vet, we decided the best thing for her would be to put her to sleep.

Midori was one of the feral cats in our care. However because of her friendly nature, we believe she had been a pet at one point. Unfortunately there were numerous cases of animal abuse in the area where she was living, and her trust in humans made her a victim. When she came to ARK her hind legs were badly damaged, and yet she would still purr affectionately at everyone.

Due to the paralysis of the lower half of her body, Midori needed to have forced urination several times a day. She also was infected with FIV (feline AIDS). For these reasons, we considered putting her to sleep when we rescued her. However, we felt that with Midori’s sweet and charming personality there was still a chance that she would be adopted, and so we searched for a new home for her while trying to make sure that she was as comfortable as possible. We did get a number of inquiries and went as far as a trial day for Midori and her potential adopters, but her potential adopters were uneasy with her uncontrollable urination and the process of forced urination. In the end we were unable to find her a new family.

Midori was truly a sweet, affectionate girl and was popular among the staff. We talked a countless number of times before coming to this decision. We ask for your understanding and thank you for supporting and loving Midori. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
