수애는 부끄럼쟁이 공주님이에요. 마구 도망가기 바쁘지만 잡히면 잘 안겨있는 귀요미입니다.
콧물도 없고 아주 건강해요.

Pearl is one of six gorgeous little ragamuffins that came to Asan shelter from Seoul with their mother Ruby ( some time ago. They have now come of age (4 months old now), are weened and ready to be adopted! They have all received their first rounds of vaccinations.

These six little beans began out as sweet friendly little balls of fluff but during a volunteer hiatus at the shelter due to a distemper outbreak amongst the dogs these guys missed out on some crucial socialisation and interaction with people at an important time during in their early social development so have recently become more withdrawn and a little scared of people. Though luckily they're all hiss and no bite and can be handled. Having said this, these guys are no loss cause and seeing similar if not more fearful kitties at the shelter enter foster and adoptive homes and transforming into playful,friendly and affectionate adorable little lovebugs gives me hope that these poppets are just in need of some kind, patient and understanding individual and/or family that can give them each the attention and love they deserve. In fact, Pearl's brother Aggie was adopted recently and has become a incredibly playful and affectionate kitty because he was given a chance!

If you're thinking of fostering or adopting a kitten, why not give one of these scaredy shelter kittens a chance and go in life?

It's with a heavy heavy heart that Suyoun's informed me that sweet Pearl passed away last week. I'm devastated

Just seeing these pictures of her now it's clear she was quite sick. I hope she's resting in peace now.

Pearl was one of my favorites in Ruby's litter; she was the first squeaking little kitten I picked up, cuddled and photographed to announce Ruby's beautiful brood 10 days after they were born and Pearl was one of the first kittens in the bunch to play with people. I'll always remember you lovely Pearl. RIP.
