Since Phillip lives in Japan, THIS news story on the JAPAN PROBE website is somewhat closer to home! ONLY in Japan can a cat go from stray, to  stationmaster to knighthood! It just goes to show that if you dream it, you can achieve it… even if you are a cat!

Fuji TV 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”).

Yes, this video is in Japanese but you know what, after awhile, you get used to it.
