In Iki Island, there are nine Animal Sanctuaries that you can discover to help three types of animals from the Mongol Invaders, Cat, Deer, and Monkeys. To help them, you sometimes need to free the animals from cages and kill all the Mongols in the area. Other times you only need to play the flute.
Once the animals are free, and the invaders are dead, you need to play a melody on your flute to calm down the cute beasties, allowing you to pet the critters. To do this, you have to tilt the PS5 controller up and down, which is represented by a green ball. This ball needs to stay in the green wavelength from the animal until the melody ends to complete the animal sanctuary.
There are three locations for each animal, and upon completion, will earn the trophy Chiyoko's Song. You will also gain charms for every two of each animal sanctuaries.

All Cat Animal Sanctuary Locations
Cat Animal Sanctuary #1
The first location is north of Barrier Cove, but it's easier to get there if you travel from Thunderhead Cliffs instead. There's a bridge to the west and south of the Cat animal sanctuary to be able to get there.
Cat Animal Sanctuary #2
The second cat location is south-southwest of Fort Sakai. Near the river is a peaceful sanctuary that you only need to play the flute to complete.
Cat Animal Sanctuary #3
The last cat sanctuary is to the southeast of Fune's Refune and the south of Kitsune's Pond. Here you need to clear out some Mongols.

The first deer location is to the northwest of Fort Sakai at Sly Hunter's Forest. It is to the right of a large bonfire surrounded by Mongols.
