Houtong Cat Village

When you arrive by train, the first thing you see is the sculpture of a cat head with small, round, and bright eyes. Welcome to Houtong Cat Village! There are approximately 100 stray cats that freely roam the village.
In 2008 Houtong was a sorry village left behind when the mining industry in the area died. The locals organized teams of volunteers to clean up the village and over time Houtong Cat Village was born. Now the village is filled with bloggers, reporters, and photographers. They come in droves to see the cats! What an unique village! The perfect answer to making a way, when there is no way.
