was rescued after having been abaondoned by the side of the road at
only several days old. She was
rescued with 3 siblings, 1 of which didn't survive. Kuro is actually
grey, not black, but she was darker than her siblings, both of which
have been rehomed.
Kuro likes attention, but sometimes becomes nervous outside the shelter
environment, which is all she has ever known. She will need adjustment
time in a new location, but loves people and should eventually do very
well. Kuro was born sometime in 2005. She was adopted by her foster family in Tokyo
in November 2010.

1/17/11 - Kuro and Benji are getting along well, there is some
competition for my lap, but I am used to that with the boys!!
Benji is definately Logans kitty, he plays with him every
morning. Logan has taught Benji to bring back his toy after Logan
throws it. The other morning this was the game while Logan sat at the
table eating breakfast. Benji would run and slide on the floor chasing
after the toy and then take it back to Logan to be thrown again.
I haven't seen Kuro and Benji play together, but they sleep together
alot, and Kuro will clean Benji's face. It's funny, even with
kuro being here first and older, Benji has managed to become the
dominant one. I have kept him off the top of the refrigerator and
she seems to be pleased with that. He has been good for her, she
now lets everyone pet her and carries herself with more confidence.
12/04/10 - Enclosed are some pictures of Kuro and Benji, they seem to
be doing fine together. We haven't witnessed them playing together yet
but I think it will come. Logan loves Benji and I think the
feeling is mutual, Benji sleeps on his bed at night.
As the pictuers show Kuro loves the
11/6/10 - Mike and I have been thinking alot about Kuro and have
decided to make her ours! We also have been thinking of getting
her a friend, she seems to be wanting a feline companion. We have
noticed she seems to warm up to strangers if they have another animal
smell on their clothes. Would love to hear your insights on how you
think she would do with another kitty?
9/25/10 - Photos of Kuro. I spoke to them on the phone yesterday,
and they say Kuro is doing great...
8/22/10 - Attached are a couple of pictures of Kuro, who is doing
well. She has been to the vet and even microchipped and registered. We
are very happy with her. She lets both boys pet her and play with her.
She has gotten nice and fat and we can't imagine being here without her.
5/28/10 - All fine here, Kuro is adjusting, she likes it when she has
all to herself, she doesn't like to share my time or attention.
Seems like she has taken a step backwards a little with not letting
anyone but me touch her, even though she will sit on a chair under the
table while the boys are sitting up to the table. She enjoys
getting brushed each morning after everyone else leaves. I think I have
brushed enough hair out of her to make another cat! She keeps
getting smaller in stature with less hair! Appears to be almost kitten
like, loves to play! Sometimes gets so crazy she slides into the wall
or chair! We have had no accidents, uses the litter box very
well. The worst she has done was nibble on a begonia plant. She
has learned to watch TV... she was amased when we took a video of her
and she saw herself on the screen.... sat up like a meercat and then
proceeded to try to get the kitty. Hopefully she will re-adjust
and let everyone enjoy her. I think it is just a matter of time and
5/10/10 - Everything is fine here. Kuro is eating and doing great
with the litter box, no accidents anywhere! She made up with my
husband in one day and loved his attention, she is still scared of the
daily movements and tends to hide out until after dinner, then she
comes out and wants petted and goes to eat and take care of her
business. She then comes back for more loves and even shows an interest
in playing! She started to scratch the furniture once and was
corrected and shown where she could scratch and has done very well with
using her scratching post now. She is a very smart kitty!! She will sit
in front of the Tv and watch it now...but gets startled easily, I
will try to get some pictures of her doing this to send to you.
Thank you very much for your continued concern and interest.
