Rest In Peace Tama the Station Master Kitty

Remember, Tama the cat who saved a small  Japanese railway line from closure? If not, read this . Well, sadly Tama passed away this week. It has been estimated that since the feline had been station master at the Kishi stop the railway company had made over a $1 billion thanks to tourism and merchandise sales. Over the 10 years that Tama worked at the stop, people flocked (approx 60,000 a year) to the small out of the way line  to catch a glimpse of this train loving moggie.  As news spread that Tama wasn’t well, even the Railway Company president  went to visit their number one draw card. Over 3,000 people attended the massive funeral over the weekend for the beloved cat that saved a railway and a township …oh and what the heck…humanity!!!!
