The epidemic of new pneumonia in Japan continues, and Tokyo, Osaka and Sapporo have not yet lifted the emergency. A shrine in Kochi Prefecture hung a sign with the words “Don’t lose to the coronavirus” on the neck of its “signboard cat” to cheer the people up.

According to Asahi Shimbun, a “signboard cat” called “Little Dot” has always been popular among the public in a shrine in Shimanto City, Kochi Prefecture. The white note with “Thank you for visiting” was originally hung on its neck, but recently it was replaced with a blue and white sign with the words “Don’t lose to the coronavirus”. Express gratitude to the medical staff.

“Little Dot” is an 11-year-old female cat. It was packed in a cardboard box about 10 years ago and was abandoned on the stairs in front of a supermarket near the shrine. Afterwards, the 66-year-old Shrine of Miyaji Kawamura, after hearing his cry and seeing it look pitiful, took it back to the shrine office. Later, due to its small size, it was renamed “Little Dot.” Kawamura’s eldest daughter hung a white note with the words “Thank you for visiting” on her neck and let it sit in the shrine office to greet the worshippers.
