Kittens were abandoned at ARK.

One day, a small cardboard box appeared in front of ARK.

In the box with the words, “Sorry, but please take care of them” written on top, were four kittens about one week old. They still had their umbilical cords attached, and their eyes were not yet open. There was nothing in the box like disposable pocket warmers to keep them warm—just a thin towel. The kittens were extremely exhausted.

It seemed like someone had left the box there early in the morning. The kittens were in a life-or-death situation, and had the discovery been made even a little later, the kittens would not have made it.

We warmed them and tried to give them milk, but they struggled to suck the feeder. The four kittens were so tiny and feeble. The staff member trying the best she could let out an anguished cry.

”You have to get milk now…!”
“Please live!”

It is difficult to take care of suckling kittens and keep them in good health, and it is not something that just anyone can do. Several staff members have been looking after them in turn, but because there are so many other dogs and cats to take of, they can’t be with the kittens all the time. The staff have to feed the kittens every few hours and take care of excretion as well. They haven’t had enough sleep for many days.

Abandoning animals is a crime.
Under the Act on Welfare and Management of Animals, violators can be fined up to 500,000 yen.
In Osaka Prefecture, abandoned animals are regarded as “evidence” of the abandonment charge, and there are cases where suspects have been identified and prosecuted by the police. Of course, ARK reports any abandonment of animals to the police.
