The stray cat who became stationmaster and saved a city

No, it's not the plot of a Japanese animated film; it's the true story of Tama, the stray cat who "adopted" a train station in the small Japanese town of Kinokawa.

After word of the cat spread (thanks to a TV appearance), massive numbers of tourists flocked to the town, giving the local economy a much-needed boost.

"Tickets, please."
