Thirteen years ago, photographer Miyoko Ihara began photographing the relationship between her now 88-year-old grandmother, Misao, and her adorable kitty friend, Fukumaru. Misao discovered Fukumaru in her shed, and since then, the two have become inseparable and the very best of friends. If these photos documenting their relationship throughout the years don't make you feel all warm-and-fuzzy, then... well, let's be honest, that's not even possible. D'AAAWWWWWWWW!
Never give up hope, Cheezfrends! Redditor "sweeetniblets" posted this photo with the commentary:
My friend just went to pet cats at our local animal shelter, and found her cat that had been missing for over a year.
Those, my friends, are tears of pure happiness and joy!
Obviously, kitty is very happy to be home.
