Photo of the Day

image of Misa, a smiling elderly Japanese woman, sitting in a garden, with her cat Fukumaru, a white cat with one blue eye and one golden eye, who is sitting on Misa's shoulder

Above: Misa and her cat Fukumaru, who have been companions since Misa found Fukumaru as a kitten, abandoned in a shed, thirteen years ago. Their story has been documented by Misa's granddaughter, photographer Miyoko Ihara, and compiled for publication in a book called Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat. More photos can be seen here.
