Japan's Island of Cats

AOSHIMA, JAPAN - SEPTEMBER 27: Cats relax in the sun on September 27, 2018 in Aoshima, Japan. Aoshima island has come to be known for its large number of felines which now outnumber humans by approximately ten to one. They were introduced on ships in the area but remained on the island and repopulated with estimates placing the current population at around 200 compared to a human population of just nine. Like many rural areas of Japan, large numbers of residents have left the community to seek better job prospects in cities and the people now remaining, and often feeding the cats, are all pensioners.
