Surprise, there was a new star at Ikebukeru station last night (around seven PM), that caused an absolute photo frenzy. A black kitten sitting on the head of the owl sculpture at Ikebukeru station, (a suburb of Tokyo) was surrounded by a crowd of excited people.
Amid sounds of "kawai" or "cuto" (cute), there were mobile phone cameras everywhere snapping the little star. Kitty sat there calmly miowing and cleaning herself lapping up the attentionfor around five minutes . The crowd gathered and Kitty was sitting put.
All of a sudden came a hand to the side of kitty. The cat's owner collected the star of the day and out the station they went with the cat sitting calmly on the owner's head, probably getting ready for a fish dinner.
An exciting end to the day's busy schedule.
