"FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) - A decade ago, Sakae Kato stayed behind to rescue
cats abandoned by neighbours who fled the radiation clouds belching from the
nearby Fukushima nuclear plant. He won’t leave.
“I want to make sure I am here to take care of the last one,” he said from his
home in the contaminated quarantine zone. “After that I want to die, whether
that be a day or hour later.”
So far he has buried 23 cats in his garden, the most recent graves disturbed by
wild boars that roam the depopulated community. He is looking after 41 others
in his home and another empty building on his property."
