You have to sit through a minute or two of political stuff in this clip from the Colbert Report, but it’s worth it to see footage of a cat who made a Japanese town $10 million once they made him stationmaster of the local rail station. When did a dog ever make someone that much money? This articlehas even more information about the cat, whose name is Tama. He has been promoted to division chief and now even has a human assistant. Between this and the cat cafes, Japan is an awesome cat tourism spot.
Thanks to Nick for the tip. And now I’m off to the cat show! I will report back later.
