Heaven for cat lovers - this Japanese island is entirely populated by cats
If you love these fluffy creatures, these pictures taken on the Japanese island of Aoshima will make you go 'aww'.
In Japan, there is a place where cats will be the first creatures to greet you and surround you whenever you go...
Aoshima, an island in Ehime Prefecture, is known for its large number of feline residents.
On Aoshima, cats outnumber people by a ratio of approximately 10:1!
A long time ago, Aoshima was a fishing village, and cats were introduced to combat rodents on fishing boats.
The felines stayed on the island and reproduced in large numbers.
The island is very small - approximately 1 mile long.
Only 13 people and about 130 cats live on the island now.
Unfortunately, not long now till the island becomes an ordinary one.
As the human population of Aoshima declines, the government decided to spay and neuter all the cats.
An average age of Aoshima's human residents is over 75, so it becomes really hard to take care of all the felines.
A lot of tourists come to the island every day. They want to pet all the cats, and some of them even find these cuties healing and understanding.
Have you ever heard about this island? Do you think the Japanese government is doing the right thing?
