A lavish funeral has been held for a Japanese cat who became an international star when she was made a stationmaster at a train station western Japan.
Tama, who was made a railway official eight years ago, was credited with putting the rail firm back on track financially after drawing in thousands of tourists.
She was given a custom-made cap and jacket which made her a familiar sight at Kishi Station.
The 16-year-old cat died of heart failure on 22 June.
Dozens of company officials and fans turned out for Tama’s Shinto-style funeral on Sunday, where was elevated to the status of a goddess.
The Shinto religion, practiced by many in Japan, has a variety of gods including animals.
Another cat, called Nitama, has since become an apprentice stationmaster.
