Felines Outnumber Humans 6:1 on ‘Cat Island’
A remote Island in Japan is a purrfect place for cat-loving tourists, but it has become a bit problematic for locals.
Cats were brought to Aoshima Island as a solution to a mouse problem on the Japanese fishing island. Now, Aoshima Island is overrun with feral cats, which outnumber humans six to one.
There are no restaurants or shops on the island, but tourists frequently arrive by ferry to see the furry felines. Strict housing laws often forbid keeping cats as pets, so the island has become a bit of a novelty.
Meanwhile, the locals are trying to control the population. They have neutered about 10 of more than 120 island cats.
