Ask Internet For Food Donation, This Japan’s Remote Cat Island Ends Up Filling All Storage Rooms

Aoshima, 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, 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 asked the Internet for help.

“Please send cat food to Aoshima,” said 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.”

A few days later, the island was overwhelmed with donations. “Please stop sending supplies (cat food) to Aoshima,” said the following 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.” Feel the power of the Internet and its netizens!
