Konki-chan is (now) a 3.5 month old black female kitten that I rescued from near death outside my building in Tokyo. She is fighting off calicivirus, diarrhea and ringworm.
“Konki” means perseverance in Japanese, and she’s living up to her name. Konki and I are both working hard to clear her afflictions and find her a loving home. Fabio is quite allergic and although he is growing very fond of her and helps me out all the time, this is most likely a rescue operation only and she will need to find a new permanent home. The building management does not allow pets, so Project: Konki Rescue! is an undercover operation! Konki has run up nearly $300 worth of medical and supply bills in just under 2 weeks. If you’d like to support this little lady in her recovery, please paypal to email@example.com. Just a dollar or two…anything is a big help for this affectionate and grateful kitty. *Special thanks to David, Susan and Cassie from the Japan Cat Network for the cage, advice and continuing medical and emotional support!* View the first video below for Konki’s story so far.
Project: Konki Rescue!
Konki’s first supper. She’s hungry and a good eater! Gotta eat well to get well, so we were happy to see her chowing.
Konki gains strength. She’s getting very genki and wants to play all the time! What a change from the kitten barely clinging to life!
Necessary e-collars. Sorry Konki, but you can’t just go licking off your medicine!
