The Fat Cats of Waseda

Perpetually lounging around the side entrance of Building 6 on Waseda campus are three imposingly large cats. (Two pictured.) To some of the students, their presence is merely tolerable. Others go out of their way to give them treats. And to the rest, the cats are hiding in plain sight.

There are other strays on campus (and in the surrounding area), but these three are the most visibly cared-for. This is courtesy of Waseneko, one of Waseda's many "circles" (societies). Its club members have provided cat houses and feeding bowls. Fund-raisers have even been held so the cats can be spayed, thereby saving Waseda from being the university equivalent of the old lady who has hundreds of stray cats roaming around her house.
