This is the feel-good feature of the day, and it’s a ridiculous one. Ever since a cat named Tortoiseshell Tama was appointed the official stationmaster of the unmanned Kishi train station in western Japan in January 2007, it has attracted approximately 55,000 tourists, and generated an estimated $10.6 million.

Now that is a return for your money. Maybe if we put more animals in uniform, the credit crunch will end.

Cat owners will note that Tortoiseshell Tama pulls off the look of contempt that only cats can do perfectly. Stats for $10.6 Million Uniformed Cats Trending: Older & Chilly
