Fox and Feral Cat - Best Friends
Lake Van, Turkey
Misao and Fukumaru. “We will never be apart.”
12 years ago, Japanese photographer, Miyoko Ihara (伊原 美代子) started to take photographs of her grandmother, Misao. Born in 1981 in Chiba (Japan), Miyoko Ihara has studied under Kenji Higuchi (樋口健二), 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.”

Hemingway’s Key West Home and Polydactyl Cats
In the Key West Spanish colonial house where Hemingway wrote “A Farewell to Arms,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “To Have and Have Not” live a family of fifty or so cats, descendants of Snowball - given to Hemingway in 1935. Hemingway was pleased to recieve the cat, and kept several of it’s offspring, saying “One cat leads to another.” The novelist was a renowned cat lover, and at his later home in Cuba, kept up to 60 cats as pets.
Many of the cats are polydactyl, with 6 or more toes on some paws.
The cats have been a fixture of the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum for years, but Florida authorities had recently threatened to remove them from the property, claiming the museum didn’t keep the animals properly contained (they were free to leave the grounds if they felt like it) and lacked an animal welfare license.
