When there are fishermen on an island in Japan, they always seem to have a group of loyal feline followers. Like the Cat Island in Tashirojima, cats are treated with love and respect by the fishermen in Fukuoka prefecture, situated on the northern shore of the island of Kyushu in Japan.
The cats are welcome into fishermen’s boats, homes as if they are the ones that truly run the shore. Cats are often coddled like part of the fishermen’s families. They feed them daily and play with them whenever the cats demand play time. These island cats seem to have created such a bond with their human friends. It’s amazing to see them fishing together by the shore or just hanging out on the door steps playing with children.
