IN 1999, Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara began taking pictures of her grandmother, Misao. Then her grandmother found a cat. She called it Fukumaru in hope that “God of fuku( good fortune) comes and everything will be smoothed over like maru(circle)”. The cat had odd eyes. It and Misao are now the stars of a book. The pictures are gorgeous:
