Kept by coal miners for catching snakes and mice, the cats are now befriended by local residents and live harmoniously with them in the area, which attracts tourists in great numbers. Cat-themed shops and cafes are popular with the tourists and a cat-related creative industry has been incorporated into the local government’s tourism development program. (Xinhua)
