My wonderful boyfriend has many spiritual gifts –wisdom, knowledge, faith. Another would certainly be finding incredibly interesting and in-no-way-useful things on the internet. His latest find: Tashirojima Island, a.k.a. Cat Island.
Have you heard of this place? According to the article I’ve linked to above, and a litter of other sources (Google “cat island, japan”), there are more cats than people on this small, Japanese land mass. Yep, Tashirojima has less than 100 elderly individuals hobbling along with their walkers on the island, which they share with more than 100 felines. It’s like Florida, but with fewer swimming pools, and, I’d guess, no mice.
