Photographer Captures The Beautiful Relationship Between Her Grandmother And a Stray Cat

17 years ago, photographer Miyoko Ihara has started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misao. Miyoko wanted to leave a living proof of her. One day, her grandmother found an odd-eyed kitten in the shed. She named the cat "Fukumaru" in hope that "God of fuku (good fortune) comes and everything will be smoothed over like maru (circle)". Even though she is 91 years old, she still go out into the fields every day and Fukumaru always accompany her. The grandmother whose hearing become weak and Fukumaru who has hearing disabilities are always looking into each other's eyes and feeling warmth each other.
Seeing that the strong bond and love between the two shines out of every photo, Miyoko published a hard cover portrait album, called "Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat". Check out the pictures below and feel the rush of good emotions!
