Cats Gather for Food on Japan’s Cat Island!【VIDEOS】

In this video, we approach a second group of cats living among the villagers on Cat Island. Some of the cats in the group were meowing in the hopes of getting fed. Some of the poor kitties were obviously hungry and hadn’t had a good meal in a long time. This feeding time would eventually be followed by a closer cuddly interaction with the cats, followed by playtime!

The footage was taken during our stay on Tashirojima (田代島), which is a small island in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan. It lies in the Pacific Ocean off the Oshika Peninsula, to the west of Ajishima. It is an inhabited island, although the population is quite small (around 100 people, down from around 1000 people in the 1950s). It has become known as “Cat Island” due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island.
