All Aboard The Cat Train As Japan Gives A Ride To Some Adorable Strays
Feline lovers got a delightful surprise as they boarded the Cat Train.
Reuters reports a Japanese civic group teamed up with a railway operator on Sunday to let some 30 cats roam on a local train at an event, hoping it will raise awareness of the culling of stray cats.
The event was hosted by Yoro Railway Co Ltd and an organization called Kitten Cafe Sanctuary.
All these efforts to reduce the number of stray cats appears to be working.
The number of cats in Japan admitted to shelters has dropped by around 70% since 2004. The cat population in Japan is around 9.8 million.
