Many Tokyo residents have a negative impression of stray cats. According to Tokyo Metropolitan's survey in 2011-2012, 40 % of Tokyo residents think stray cats are problems. 20 % of residents think they want to touch the stray cat (but they do not touch the cat actually, I think).
Table : Impression of Stray Cats
|Would like to touch||10.7|
|Do not want to be around||25.4|
multiple answer allowed, number of sample is 1472.
Personally my answer is "Would like to touch". But cats ran away always.
