An Island of Cats in Japan (39 pics)

Posted in Animals   4 Mar 2015   / 7163 views

Aoshima is a Japanese island that is home to hundreds of cats. Cats were originally imported to the islands to deal with mice that were eating the fishing nets post World War II. There used to be 900 people on the island but now there are only 17 people and the cats have become a tourist attraction.

The population of the island is only 15!
You must visit the cat island when you come to Dogo hot spring, Ehime prefecture.
