WHAT'S NEW PUSSY CAT? JAPAN'S CAT CAFE TRAIN

WHAT'S NEW PUSSY CAT? JAPAN'S CAT CAFE TRAIN. Passengers play with cats in a train cat cafe, on a local train in Ogaki, Gifu Prefecture, Japan Sept 11, 2017. A Japanese civic group teamed up with a railway operator on a 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. Passengers on a local train in Ogaki, in central Japan, were greeted by meowing companions on a moving train, where some passengers mingled with the felines while others enjoyed lunch.The number of cats in Japan admitted to shelters has dropped by around 70 percent to 72,624 in 2016 from 237,246 in 2004. That has reduced the number of cats culled from 238,929 in 2004 to 45,574 in 2016. The cat population in Japan is around 9.8 million. Photo courtesy Agencies
