Aoshima, also known as Cat Island, is a tiny remote island in southern Japan,  where cats outnumber humans 6 to 1. When the food supply service was put on hold due to bad weather conditions, the local residents panicked and immediately turned to the Internet.

We’ll be fine until April. Thank you all very much.” Internet, we salute you.
