Cats from Tokyo {Japan}

cat on bike

In the middle of a new residential district in Tokyo, you'll find an abandoned house with dense vegetation coming from the garden and a rusty pickup truck sitting in front.

 A little further, in another street, there's a second home that is just as ramshackle, but this one is inhabited. Here, a dozen cats spend their days taking naps in the middle of the street.

Because of the humid climate, the iron structures rust very quickly. Many cats in this neighborhood have the perfect color for an urban camouflage.

The signpost below reads: "Are you willing to take care of them all the way? Simply feeding them causes a proliferation of cats. Spay and neuter them and take all the necessary precautions to avoid that they give birth to poor kittens whom no one will take care of."

  1. considering how much land is needed I am surprised that this place exists in Tokyo. I love what is written because they do need to be captured and spayed and neutered. They look so sweet and that last pic-I wish i could cuddle...after taking him/her to the vet

  2. Here in Canada we had cats that lived at the parliament buildings. People would just drop them off there and people would feed them. They started to spay and neuter them and the population finally died out. It's kind of sad in a way because people came from all over the world to see the cats at the parliament buildings.
