Meet Misa and Fukumaru

Thirteen years ago, photographer Miyoko Ihara began snapping pictures of the budding relationship between her now 88-year-old grandmother, Misa, and her odd-eyed kitten, Fukumaru. Since Misa found the cat abandoned in a shed, the pair have barely ever been apart. Their beautiful friendship is documented in a photo book, Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat.




 Thanks again to my friend Doctor Goat, who should have a medical degree for all the does to improve my mental health. His compassion is a constant cure for the ennui that ails me.

Cats make the bestest friends. What a lovely post -- love the last photo in particular!

I hope to spend the rest of my life in the company of a nice cat, a nice cigar and no one's bullshit.
