The man who saves forgotten cats in Fukushima's nuclear zone 
A decade ago, Sakae Kato stayed behind to rescue cats abandoned by neighbours who fled the radiation clouds belching from the nearby Fukushima nuclear plant. He won't leave.

"I want to make sure I am here to take care of the last one," he said from his home in the contaminated quarantine zone. "After that I want to die, whether that be a day or hour later."

Unuma who's home where she lived, is 2.5 km away from the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant, won't return even if the government scrapes the radioactive soil off her fields. Radiation levels around her house are around 20 times the background level in Tokyo, according to a dosimeter reading carried out by Reuters. Only the removal of Fukushima's radioactive cores will make her feel safe, a task that will take decades to complete.

Sakae Kato walks past workers checking radiation levels on a road near his house as he walks Pochi, his dog which he rescued four years ago, in a restricted zone in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, February 20, 2021. Kato looks after 41 cats in his home and another empty building on his property. A decade ago, he stayed behind to rescue cats abandoned by neighbours who fled the radiation clouds belching from the nearby Fukushima nuclear plant. He won't leave. "I want to make sure I am here to take care of the last one," Kato said. "After that I want to die, whether that be a day or hour later."
