Where love has no borders

Here’s the lovely story of a heart-melting relationship between a cat and an old woman.

Misao and Fukumaru. “We will never be apart.”

12 years ago, Japanese photographer, Miyoko Ihara started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misao. Born in 1981 in Chiba (Japan), Miyoko Ihara has studied under Kenji Higuchi, after graduating from the Press Photography Course at the Nippon Photography Institute in 2002. Miyoko is also a member of The Photographic Society of Japan.”

“Under the sun, everyday is a good day. Another good day, Fukumaru”, Misao. Eight years ago, Misao found a 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 like a “maru” (circle)”.

“We’ll never be apart!”, says Misao to Fukumaru. Both of them live in a tiny world, with dignity, with mutual love. Still today, under the blue sky, Misao and Fukumaro work in the fields and in these natural surroundings, where they shine like the stars.”

That cat has some amazing, magical eyes! Animals are capable of creating strong boundaries with human beings…it’s so touching to look at the photos and actually understand how they feel about each other and also realize the level of respect that they show to each other. We should learn from them.

”We’ll never be apart!”…the most beautiful phrase ever!
