Nitama the Cat Is Tama’s Successor

The torch cat hat has been passed:

Wakayama Electric Railway Co. recently said goodbye to their beloved Tama, the adorable calico cat who served as stationmaster of Kishi Station in Wakayama Prefecture, Japan since 2007.

Now after a wait of 50 days, they issued a letter of appoinemnet for Nitama (Tama II), a 5 year-old calico, to become Kishi’s new stationmaster.

As Nitama officially took over the position, Tama was posthumously promoted to “Distinct Eternal Stationmater.”

    Such heart-warming and good news is a pleasant relief from everything coming out of the Muslim world.

    No big shock that on the World Dog Day ( aug 26) a cat steals the limelight
    to show who is Really going to rule the Earth one day.

    They did it…….they finally did it……. you crazy cats , damn you all to hell.

    It is always an extra level of enjoyment doing business with any establishment that has a resident cat.it indicates the owner has a certain higher level of civility.. Some cultures do not understand pets and they are the poorer for it with appreciation of pets comes altruism and civilization.

  • Shebel

    It is OK for people to think that cats can make good pets and are useful for something or other but people must come down to earth and realize that cats are not dawgs . Cats really are not good for much of anything except target practice and something for a loyal and faithful dog to chase.

      Shebel, you really should learn a little history. First of all, you probably wouldn’t have food to eat if it weren’t for the ancient Egyptian cats saving their stored grain. Cats eat vermin, not grain. Also, if superstitious Europeans had not killed cats during the Middle Ages, there might have been fewer deaths due to plague. Again, cats kill vermin, not people. South Asian rats carried disease-carrying fleas. More than 25 million people died from plague. Almost every day one hears of cats doing heroic things, like alerting their humans to fire or to gas leaks. I personally know a little street cat who saved a Torah from being nibbled by a mouse. Whoever thinks that cats are not loyal and loving should give their head a shake. Just because their behavior is different from dogs does not mean that they don’t have feelings or are incapable of love and loyalty.
