The second video of the Cat Island video series captures our encounter with a larger group of cats as we approached the main village on Tashirojima, aka Cat Island. Hungry cats followed us about and did not hesitate to jump on our lap or dig through our belongings in the hopes of finding food or treats. The experience being surrounded by so many cats and feeding them was simply surreal, almost like cat heaven!

The footage was taken during our stay on Tashirojima (田代島), which is a small island in Ishinomaki, Miyagi, Japan. It lies in the Pacific Ocean off the Oshika Peninsula, to the west of Ajishima. It is an inhabited island, although the population is quite small (around 100 people, down from around 1000 people in the 1950s). It has become known as "Cat Island" due to the large stray cat population that thrives as a result of the local belief that feeding cats will bring wealth and good fortune. The cat population is now larger than the human population on the island.
