One of the most cat-friendly places on the map has to be the little country of Japan.
First of all, there are around 100 cat cafes located in Japan, where animal-lovers pay good money to drink coffee and play with a cat, at special establishments where the cat is the main entertainment.
As well, Japan is home to two islands dedicated especially to felines, and called, "cat island." These are places where cats abound, and roam freely on the streets.
Not surprisingly, Japan is also on the forefront of kitty housing, with a special line of houses designed especially to be more cat friendly, including built-in cat towers and materials that are more resistant to cat scratching.
