Misa and Fukumaru are the best of friends, they literally never want to be apart from each other. The only odd part about their friendship is that Misa is an 88 year-old grandmother and Fukumaru is an odd-eyed little cat. Misa found Fukumaru abandoned in a shed when he was just a kitten… and they’ve been by each other’s sides ever since. Miyoko Ihara was taking pictures of her grandmother 12 years ago when she documented their entire friendship. Your heart will be in warm, fuzzy pieces are this.
Luckily, Miyoko Ihara (Misa’s granddaughter) was there to capture all of the wonderful moments.
The cat with heterochromia was left for dead as a kitten…
But now, he just spends his days with his best friend Misa.

Misa named him Fukumaru, which means “god of good fortune.”
