Cat Serves As Stationmaster in Japan.

Back in January, Japan Probe posted about Wakayama Electric Railway’s decision to appoint a cat named Tama as a stationmaster. According to a news report, Tama has become a major tourist attraction, drawing many visitors who ride the Kishigawa Line’s special strawberry motif train.

Tama is now the centerpiece of Kishi Station, sitting upon his thrown and wearing a cute little cap while people take his picture. The station’s shopowner, who cares for Tama and two feline deputy stationmasters, carries him out to the platform to wave goodbye to each train as it leaves. Awww…how cute.

You can watch the news report here [YouTube].

Calico cats are almost always female, but there are some rare exceptions, so maybe it is a male? I couldn't tell if the video mentioned the sex because my Japanese isn't that advanced yet.

On a side note, orange/ginger cats are almost always male, with rare exceptions being female.
