    this is how you knight a cat

    FTV reports that Tama, the stationmaster cat that has become a national sensation, has been “knighted” by the Wakayama Prefectural government:

    Wakayama bestowed the honorary title upon Tama in recognition of his service to the Wakayama Electric Railroad and the 1.1 billion yen he has brought to the local economy (and because his station, Kishi, is also the Japanese word for “knight”).
