Cat of the month - Laryssa

Laryssa is one of our latest rescue. She was found near Kyoto station along some of her siblings. Laryssa is a bit shy but she will not mind lying next to you. Laryssa loves eating (maybe a bit too much ?!) and she doesn't mind being stroke if there is some food available. In a nutshell, Laryssa is a lovely 10 month old female, looking for a fur-ever home. If you already have a cat, Laryssa could be a perfect playmate as she loves playing (on her own or with Chizu, one of our other rescue).

Want to support JCN ?

Japan Cat Network relies entirely on small donations from the public to operate. We receive no government funding. Your generous donation will make a difference in the lives of all the animals that we save from Fukushima and other areas, as well as the lives of evacuees who are trying to help pets. Japan Cat Network keeps its internal costs down by relying only on a team of dedicated volunteers. All donations go to our extensive activities such trap-neuter-return (TNR) operations, shelter, and veterinary costs. We have a policy of financial transparency, and we endeavour to update the website regularly with a breakdown of our expenditures. You can also visit our online shop !!

Volunteering with JCN not only allows you to do something to save the lives and reduce the suffering of Japan’s stray and abandoned animals, but you can also be part of a great group of people. This house in Kyoto was created as a way to help support animal rescue assistance in Japan.
