In Japan, a train appeared, whose passengers are homeless cats. This is an initiative of the Japanese public organization and the railway company, which helps to save the life of a stray animal.
The Japanese public organization Kotokafe Sanctuary together with the railway company Yoro Railway Co Ltd launched a project dedicated to the problem of stray cats in Japan. Between the prefectures of Gifu and Mi for the first time in history drove a train, which was equipped kotokafe.
About 30 stray cats, public activists and ordinary passengers traveled to the new compound. The organizers of the action hope that such an initiative will reduce the number of homeless animals on the streets of the country.
The passengers of the train, who turned out to be participants of the public action, happily played with meowing fellow travelers. People who in ordinary life would hardly have been taken into the hands of a homeless animal on this train did not refuse close contact with cats.
Some passengers after the trip said that they even wanted to have their own kitten.

Carrying out shares likecat train increases the chance of the tailed to survive and find a new home.”I think this is a great undertaking, it will allow many to talk about the problem of homeless animals,” said Mikiko Hayashi, who herself has already picked up two cats from the street.
The initiative with cat train received a lot of positive feedback, so the organizers plan to withdraw the train for one more flight.
