This is Sophi
She is from Fukushima and was a few months old when the quake hit on march 11, 2011, setting off the disastrous chain of events .
Her family left her behind as they scrambled to evacuate when the nuclear power plant went critical .
Many pets were abandoned . Most people thought they could just go back in a few days but that sadly wasn't the case .
In September 2011, I went up to volounteer at an animal shelter in Fukushima .
I met Sophi for the first time .
She had recently been rescued after spending 5 months on her own in the exclusion zone to fend for herself .
It was love at first sight, and a few weeks later she joined me in Tokyo .
She's such a good girl , loving, kind and so generous ( she shares her toys with my other Fukushima baby -Kiki.)
