About 10 Letters from Kitty
According to a report in 2018, 43,200 pets are euthanized per year in Japan. 34,900 of them are cats. Thanks to many people’s efforts for rescue and adoption, the number of these cats has been decreasing. However, many cats still die in this manner each year.
We hope you will keep your cats until the last moment of their lives, no matter what the situation is. This wish brought the creation of 10 Letters from Kitty. It is a story which takes the shape of notes of love and gratitude from a rescued cat to his owner who kept him throughout his life. Many readers of the story wanted their children to read it, too, so this picture book has been born. I hope you will enjoy reading it with your children.

The word “wonder” has meanings such as “to think why” and “to want to know more.” We took this name hoping people would like to understand cats better, and both cats and their owners will have happy lives together. We run our work through WEB media with lots of help from creative artists such as writers, illustrators and photographers as well as cat specialists including veterinarians.
Wakaba Tasaka and Robert A. Fisher are cat-loving wife and husband who live in Williamsburg, Virginia. They dedicate this first children’s story English translation to the memory of Ririca (Lyrica) and Erica, who were sister kitties rescued in a small park in Tokyo and flown to the U.S. to live with the couple to “the last moment of their lives.” Today Wakaba and Robert love and cherish Maya, a tortoise-shell kitty they adopted from a local Humane Society.
