Kitteh Kats

I'm just a guy who doesn't give a damn what others think, I love cats.   Lets face it, cats make us happy, so here's some happy.   The standard discalimer applies: none of these photos or videos are mine unless otherwise stated.   If you find your copyrighted content posted here and wish it removed I will happily do so at your request.   Blah, blah, blah.  NOW... on to the kittehs!

Please use the  BULLETIN BOARD  page for notices about kitties in need!

Cat Island, Japan
Tashirojima (田代島?) is a small island in Ishinomaki City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan. It lies in the Pacific Ocean off the Oshika Peninsula, to the west of Ajishima. It is an inhabited island, although the population is quite small (around 100 people, down from around 1000 people in the 1950s). It has become known as “Cat Island” due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island. (A 2009 article in Sankei News says that there are no pet dogs and it is basically prohibited to bring dogs onto the island.)
The island is divided into two villages/ports: Oodomari and Nitoda. Ajishima, a neighbouring island, used to belong to Oshika Town, while Tashirojima was a part of Ishinomaki City. On April 1, 2005, Oshika Town merged with Ishinomaki City,so now both islands are a part of Ishinomaki City.
