In Japan, the cat came from China in the sixth century AD. Then the cat sailed on the ships carrying to Japan Buddhist manuscripts, and not just swimming, and protected the mice from the sacred book.
With 794 years in pictures and books begin to appear images of fluffy purring. Getting off the ship to the Japanese coast, four-legged creatures with pleasure spread across the entire country.
As a result, the Japanese got a beloved pet and a new breed, the Japanese bobtail, the cat with a short tail.
