Sameko roughly translates to Baby Shark in Japanese, but she also goes by Meko (or lovingly Shark) for short! Meko has silky black fur expect for a small patch of white on her chest and gorgeous hazel eyes. Her right eye is slightly smaller and darker than her left eye due to a severe infection she developed when living in a dirty oil barrel as a tiny baby - which is now 100% cured. She has full sight in that eye and it doesn't slow her down one bit!
Meko is the absolute sweetest, friendliest, most playful, and most affectionate kitten that you will ever meet! She is definitely the "life of the party!" Meko has never met a stranger and loves to give hugs and lots of little sandpaper kisses. She gets along with all the cats and kittens in her foster home too but would love to be an only cat where she can get all the attention! Her feisty but oh so sweet personality will steal your heart!
Sameko was found living alone in an oil barrel outside of a local business when she was only 4 weeks old. A kind employee rescued her and cared for her until she came in IAR care. What a lucky little Shark!
