Papers & Journals

In order to provide a wide range of knowledge on community cats, we have created a list of links to the literature for the past 20 years or more.

The list is sorted by the year of publication, with only the title, year of publication, and affiliation (e.g., name of university) at the time of publication.

Necessary permission for publication has been obtained.

The purpose of this publication is to provide an opportunity to review the activities of community cats from an academic point of view.

Of course, it is not necessary to read all of the articles, but just reading a few that interest you will give you a new perspective, so please take advantage of this opportunity.

Please note that all papers are based on Japanese. If there is no English translation of the title in the paper, we have provided our own English translation.
