Japanese ‘Cat Island’ Cats Outnumber People 6 To 1

NBC News: An army of feral cats rules a remote island in southern Japan, curling up in abandoned houses or strutting about in a fishing village that is overrun with felines outnumbering humans six to one. Originally introduced to the mile-long island of Aoshima to deal with mice that plagued fishermen’s boats, the cats stayed on — and multiplied. More than 120 cats swarm the island with only a handful of humans for company. 


Umm no thanks.  Sounds like just about the worst place on this green earth.  The name ‘Cat Island’ is absolutely terrifying.  When cats band together, I’m pretty sure they become killer cats.  Strength in numbers, ever heard of that little slogan?  Ever seen the movie Willard?  When I’m outnumbered by anything 6 to 1 I freak out, let alone killer feral cats.  Feral in Japanese translates to “scary angry murderer” if you didn’t know.  I’m getting the heebie jeebies just thinking about it.

Please note that my extreme allergy to cats has not played any part in my opinion on the matter.  Cats are just bad.
