TAIPEI, TAIWAN (TraNews) – As certainly many cat lovers have heard the well-known Tashiro Island in Japan, this fishing village of Tashiro Island is nicknamed the “Cat Island” since the trace of cats can be found everywhere on the island. The island has shunned dogs for centuries in the belief that cats would bring a big catch.

It is expressly stated that no dogs is allowed to enter into the island, and even the temples are built to worship cats, attracting throngs of visitors and cat lovers from around the world to take photos of them.

The example of this symbiosis between humankind and animals can also be spotted in Danshui, Taipei. Because of geographical relations, there are a significant number of cats that can be seen roaming everywhere in Danshui.

According to the local vendors, they have seen many cat lovers carrying cameras to get snapshots of adorable kittens playing hide-and-seek games with tourists, or lazy fat cats sunbathing. Some of them even love to pose in front of cameras, which is a quite fascinating experience.

Right now, cats have become one of the most significant sights in Danshui, and they seem to appear everywhere in the streets, against the walls, in the bushes, or even in the restaurants and coffeehouses. If you are a huge cat-loving person, Danshui undoubtedly is a perfect cat-spotting destination worth checking out!
