The Heartwarming Story of How the Internet Helped Feed Japan’s Famous Cat Island

Aoshima, which is also known as Cat Island, is a tiny remote island in the Ehime Prefecture of southern Japan where cats outnumber humans 6 to 1. Recently, though, the food supply service was put on hold due to bad weather conditions. In order to keep the cats from being starved, residents from the island decided to ask the Internet for help.

“Please send cat food to Aoshima,” stated the Tweet of a cat caretaker. “There are no stores to buy food here on Aoshima. The people here acquire their necessities by taking a boat to the mainland. However, it’s extremely windy in winter, and boat service is often suspended.”

Just a few short days later, the island was overwhelmed with donations. “Please stop sending supplies (cat food) to Aoshima,” stated the next Tweet. “We got far more than we ever expected, and there’s no more storage room. We’ll be fine until April. Thank you all very much.” WOW!
