CAT ISLAND

While many cities are working to curb feral cat populations through spay-and-neuter programs, there’s one place where cat numbers continue to grow and the locals encourage it.
 
Tashiro-jima is a small island in Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, that’s home to more cats than people. Better known as “Cat Island,” it has about 100 permanent residents and hundreds and hundreds of cats.

Learn more about Cat Island and see some amazing photos of the island’s feline residents.
