A ‘sweet catastrophe’ is happening on the Japanese island of Aoshima. The number of cats on the island has increased the number of people to 6 …
International news agencies covered this incident with the headlines “Cats captured the Japanese island”.
The island residents’ goal was originally only to catch mice in fishing boats. This tiny fishing island, where only 22 people live, is now under cat occupation.
This love, which started with a couple of cats before, turned into a “cat invasion” when the breeding got out of control. 10 of the 120 cats now on the island have been neutered.
The island of Aoshima, reached by a 15-minute ferry from the Ehime coast, was home to 900 people in 1945.
After World War II, many people migrated from the island due to the economic crisis. Now, non-immigrant retirees live on the island.
Ferries, carrying daily visitors twice a day, approach the island. The inhabitants of the island, on the other hand, do not like the tourists’ visits.
There are feeding areas for cats on the island. Visitors can feed the cats in these areas.
Tourists feed the cats with fish and take lots of photos.
There are a number of other “cat islands” in Japan, including Enoshima in Kanagawa Prefecture, Okishima in Shiga Prefecture, and Enoshima in Sanagishima, Kagawa Province.
