Pea's long road to recovery ended on a truly happy note. Not only did she grow and blossom into a friendly, loving, and healthy kitty, but she finally found her forever home. Congratulations, Pea!
UPDATE: March 28
Pea is now all alone for the first time in her foster home and she is really beginning to blossom quickly. After we split her up from her brother, Bean, handsome Tiger moved in and she made wonderful progress in her health and development. However, I was worried that she would regress a bit on her own as she has always been super shy. Nervous and scared used to be her default setting, but that is beginning to a distant memory with each passing day.
No longer fighting for food, attention, and her own personal space, Pea is well on her way to being the ideal companion in Korea. A bit of a runt compared to Bean, I think she will always be on the small side even when she is full grown-perfect (or purrfect) for apartment living in Korea.
The best way to find out if she is right for you is to come visit her in person. Please contact Matthew or Daisy to make arrangements and this sweet second chance kitten from Asan Shelter could be yours...
UPDATE: March 8
Pea (and her new flatmate, Tiger) both made it into the Cool Pet shop here in Daejeon this week to be sterilized and vaccinated. Splitting up Pea and her brother Bean has also yielded the desired results with her as she is now very affectionate and overall less fearful of me. Her constant "meowing" was perhaps both a cry for attention and a sign that she was in heat, both signals that I could not ignore.
Now that she is much more friendly, has been spayed, and is up-to-date with her shots, I hope to find her a permanent home, too.

Pea continues to go from strength to strength! Pea has now been separated from her brother and this should really help with with building her socialisation and trust skills. From her foster....
" Pea continues to make great strides in just a very short time. After splitting up her and her brother Bean, I became worried that her loud, non-stop meowing would never end. She dearly missed her brother and was greatly confused, depressed, and seemingly inconsolable. However, after just a few short days she has completely rebounded.
With only a few minor vocalizations of note, Pea is beginning to become more active, comfortable, and curious. She is still somewhat jumpy, but is no longer hiding in fear all day or crying all night. I am thrilled with her progress and resilient nature. While physical contact is still off-limits, she has begun sleeping under the covers of my bed and even came out to watch my lose badly on "Teacher Poker Night". Patience and a positive environment seem to be paying off and I think we have both turned a corner. Fostering is not easy and with cats, there may never be a glorious payoff. However, in looking back over my entries and photos from the experience, I am amazed at the growth and development of this "Sweet Pea"! "
Keep your eye out for more updates on her progress! Pea will hopefully be spayed too soon ^^

Yay!!! Lucky Pea has found a foster home! And it's confirmed Pea is actually female! Sweet lil shy Pea is settling in well with Bean and already is looking more relaxed (see photo below!) And no wonder, this is their first time that they haven't been in some kind of confined space! Pea is still showing symptoms of what is most likely the feline herpes virus (sniffling, sneezing and expelling some nasal mucous) but being in a warm home is the first step to a good recovery! (Thank you Matt!!) I have a good feeling about Pea's future!
Thank you to everyone who kindly donated towards Pea and the other kitten's vet expenses for the last couple of weeks. This really enabled to give them a good fighting chance in life! Please consider giving this adorable kitty a forever home!

Pea is ready to leave the vets!!!
PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING THIS SWEET KITTY A CHANCE TO SHINE AND GIVE HER A FOSTER OR FOREVER HOME!!
UPDATE: January 3
Pea, along with her brother and sister, was pulled from the shelter 2 weekends ago with eyes that were practically crusted over. Many amazing volunteers supporters of ARK and Asan donated funds for treatment and her vet stay! She is lucky to have so many looking over her!
Her eyes are now clearing up and she is having a great time away from the shelter. She is being treated for the next 6 days for ear mites and then she will be ready for her new foster or forever home!
We don't want them going back to the shelter, so I have started a fundraiser to seek either sponsors or donations, as well as fosters and adopters, for Pea and her siblings boarding fees, food and medical care, until they are ready to go to new homes.
You can read more about the event here >>>http://www.animalrescuekorea.org/blog/dbis/urgent-fosters-and-adopters-n...
PLEASE PLEASE spare a few pennies to help give Pea and her siblings fighting chance for the new year!
Please help us help this cutie!! For more information on fostering or adopting, see below information.
Pea is a 3 or 4 month year old kitten who was rescued along with her two siblings, Bean and Button, by Mr Park from the Asan city pound.
Currently she and her siblings are being boarded at a wonderful vet in Cheonan after recently contracting a mild eye infection and cold symptoms. Pea is still a little wild, and the shiest one amongst her siblings and named so because she likes to hide and curl up tight in her pod (kitten house) out of anyone's sight!! But seeing the transformation of her sister Button at the vets, we're hoping Pea too will come out of her shell soon after a bit of TLC!!
Other volunteers and myself have decided to quarantine the kittens at this vet until suitable fosters or adopters come along. However, because of the expenses incurring daily at the vets, which I might add were heavily and kindly discounted, we are also seeking an URGENT FOSTER or donations and sponsorships for Pea, her siblings and three other kittens. Currently, I'm in the process of setting up an event for this so please stay tuned for more information!!
Please consider giving a Pea a chance! She needs that special someone who can give her a quality time and lots of love and care to build up her trust and confidence so she can truly thrive and flourish!
