Aoshima, known as Cat Island, is a small remote island in the Ehime Prefecture of southern Japan, where cats outnumber humans 6 to 1. you can imagine the horror these people felt when recently the food supply service was put on hold due to bad weather conditions. To prevent the feline-uprising, the residents turned to the Internet for help.

“Please send cat food to Aoshima” was the Tweet of a cat caretaker. “There is 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.”

Just few days later, the island was overwhelmed with donations. “Please stop sending supplies (cat food) to Aoshima,” was 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.” was the last tweet from them.
