We all know that the Internet is overrun with cats, which is why we couldn’t help but contribute to that by drawing attention to an island that is also overrun with cats.
A photographer who goes by the name Fubirai has spent more than half a decade documenting the lives of the semi-wild cats that roam Fukuoka, Japan, a small island known to locals as “Cat Heaven.”
Fed by fishermen, the cats wander through the small fishing town through boatyards and beaches, back alleyways and rooftops.
Click through the slideshow above to see Fubirai’s heart-warming photographs of these adorable felines.
