Cat island... seriously... an island ruled by cats!
I know where I iz going on vacation to...
Cats waz first introduced here in the mid-18th to mid-19th century to control the mouse population plaguing the island's silkworm farms. The silkworm industry later moved, and most of its inhabitants followed, leaving the cats behind. Today, there iz about 100 human residents, most over the age of 60, but the cat population skyrocketed. Tashirojima's main industry iz fishing (which the cats haz to be thrilled about!) The fishermen came to believe the cats waz lucky, so they let them stay and multiply. There iz even a shrine built to the cats! There iz very few cars or bikes on the island, so there iz no real threats to the cats, where they live peacefully.
Naturally, everyone wants to come to Cat Island, as it iz known, and tourists iz invited to stay for the night in cat-shaped cabins from April to November. No dogs allowed.
