Cats are much more popular than dogs these days. Not a day goes by that I don't see a cat video, so much so that a book titled "Cats Rule the Media" has been published. In fact, for several years now, more people in Japan have been adopting cats than dogs.

The difference in popularity is also evident in the language. I noticed that the term "community cat" has become widely accepted. A community cat is "a cat that does not have a specific owner, but is jointly managed with the recognition and agreement of residents." Since I do not hear the term "community dog," it seems that this term only refers to cats. Then, what do we call "dogs that do not have specific owners but are jointly managed with the recognition and agreement of local residents" is stray dogs.

That is right. Cats that are called community cats would have been called stray cats in the past. Perhaps it is because the word "stray cat" does not have a good image, but it seems that those who call them community cats now form the majority. If this situation continues, the term "stray cat" itself may soon become obsolete. If this happens, we may lose the interest of Hyakken Uchida, who named a stray cat (nora neko) that wandered into his house "Nora" and left an essay about his daily life with Nora.
