General description

  • Main home
Very small apartment for western standard size but quite normal for an apartment for single people in Japan. Cozy one room apartment, fully equipped with both heating and cooling system. In a country with one of the most expensive accommodation fees. Only 20 minutes train ride from Shibuya/Shinjuku. Quiet residential area with shops around the train station, about 8 minutes walk away.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • A cat
My biggest concern is my Scottish fold cat, he is a good boy named Pepe. However he gets a little shy with strangers, but after a little while he warms up. I would like you to feed him wet food twice a day, and leave dry food out for him when you leave, just in case something happens. Clean his litter box daily and always check if he has fresh water. Play with him as much as you can, but at least 15 minutes twice a day. He is only 1 year old and still loves to play, gets bored easily. He is a sweet boy, but has a true cat personality, doesn't really like to be held (only when he feels like), so he might bite you if you hold him against his will. I would like you to send me a picture everyday, just so I can rest assure.
