The Tashirojima island in Japan can only be repulsive to dog lovers, because otherwise there's nothing else that can stop you from visiting the place where cats run their own government. The best part about this place is that you can actually live here in cat-shaped houses that are designed by Manga artists. Since cats are considered to be sacred in the Japanese culture, there are many more islands like this in the country.

Here's detailed information on how to get there.

The mere mention of the Bahamas takes our mind on a mental ride of pristine white beaches and unlimited beer. But the visuals that never appear are those of fluffy pigs randomly swimming in those crystal waters. Yes, that is the case with the Pig Beach in the Bahamas. This is where you'll encounter these porky creatures that are otherwise friendly but won't blink an eye before putting their mouths on your lunch. So beware!

If you suddenly see hundreds of gorgeous ponies running towards you in Maryland, don't be alarmed as these animals are the rulers of that land. But, unlike humans, they are absolutely peaceful. All they like to do throughout the day is jump into the sea at the Assateague Island National Seashore and wander around into the pine forests and marshes nearby aimlessly. Well, you really need to see it to believe it.

Seals Large and Stout, Always Looking for Their Trout!

If there was an award for being lazy, all the seals of False Bay could file individual claims for it and everyone would end up winning. These seals don't do anything all day besides randomly barking at each other and rolling around on the bay that they call home. Last estimated, there were about 60,000 specimens in this little place, but nobody seems to have any complaints on them having no personal space.

Oh deer! If you ever thought that you had seen it all, wait until you visit this heavenly island filled with extremely respectful deer. Charles Darwin would've been proud seeing these friendly animals, who have learnt how to bow to humans in order to get food in exchange. How cunning is that! When not conning, they laze around the roads sunbathing all day long. The Miyajima Island on Hiroshima Bay is quite an attraction to people.

Okunoshima Island was once a chemical production site but today thousands of cheerful bunnies have taken it over in order to nibble on the loads of carrots that their human friends bring along. Also known as Usuga Jima (Rabbit Island) is a squishy-mushy haven for rabbit lovers that love being chased around and feeding the friendly bunnies. Cats and dogs are strictly prohibited at this place ensuring that the rabbits breed fast are the masters of their own destiny.

Short, Portly or Thin, All They Do is Monkey Around and Grin!

Having been uninhabited by their more evolved forms since 1938, the Monkey Island in Puerto Rico gives complete freedom to these monkeys to create menace however they please. Almost a thousand monkeys at this place are all descendants of the 409 that were brought from India 80 years ago for research purposes. As soon as you enter the island, you'll be expected to feed them bananas... a lot of them.

With over 100,000 Atlantic puffins loitering around without much aim here, the Runde Island has been truly taken over by the birds of Norway. This specie is just as it looks like, completely adorable and non-invasive. If you manage to catch these awkwardly running birds, you can hug them and feed them fish. The island is also home to 600,000 other seabirds and approximately 100 of our species too.

A Lot More Cats & No Goodbye, Because Screw You All That's Why!

Yes, why on earth not! There can never be enough of these furry creatures in this world, and hence I am dedicating another point to them just as the Americans have dedicated this entire 85-acre island to them. This is supposedly a dumping ground for unwanted pet cats, and hence they really enjoy their freedom wholeheartedly. Several of them are regularly put up for adoption by NGOs but well, you know cats... they just love their freedom and doing nothing all day long.

At last, your wish has been fulfilled. I know that many of you just scrolled through the entire article looking for the place with just dogs and nothing else. Well, here it is. This paradise of a thousand freely running dogs is also known as the "land of the strays". The only difference is that this place is run by an NGO called Territorio de Zaguates, because dogs, unlike most other animals on the list, are really compassionate animals and hence need utmost love and care to survive. This place provides the canines with proper food, beds and medical facilities forever until someone comes and adopts them to join their own family.

Here's detailed information on how to get here.
