Chronicle of 87-Year-Old Grandmother and Her Beloved Cat


This is an wonderful story of a 87 year old granny and her beloved cat. Grab the tissues for this story.
Misao Iharai is a 87-year-old resident of Chiba Prefecture in Japan, she found a little odd-eyed kitten in the shed about 10 years ago.
He was born to the stray cat coming from the farm. Many odd-eyed white cats are usually deaf, and this kitten didn’t escape that fate.
As soon as Misao found him, she named him Fukumaru “in hope that ‘God of fuku’ (good fortune) comes and every thing will be like a ‘maru’ (circle).” (Asian Offbeat)
13 years ago, Misao’s granddaughter Miyoko Ihara, a Japanese photographer, begun to take photos of her granny during her project. Right after her grandfather died, Miyoko made a decision to dedicate a number of photographs of her grandmother to remember her life. Seeing as Misao had hardly ever taken many pictures of cats when she was young, she seemed to be happy to become her granddaughter’s model. In 2003, Miyoko began documenting this chronicle of her grandmother and her beloved cat.
Fast forward to today, Misao and Fukumaru have lived together for about Nine years. Due to old age, Misao is losing the ability to hear and her very best furry companion has never been able to hear, but they seem to understand each other just by looking into their eyes.
Despite being in her late 80s, Misao continues to work in the fields, planting and weeding under the open sky, and Fukumaru never leaves her sight. The two are inseparable. There is a strong bond and mutual love that connect them. They don’t have to say much and they are both hard of hearing, but they get each other right away as if they can read each others mind.
“We’ll never be apart!”, says Misao to Fukumaru. (Asian Offbeat) “Both of them live in a tiny world, with dignity, with mutual love. Still today, under the blue sky, Misao and Fukumaru work in the fields and in these natural surroundings, where they shine like the stars
