For the past thirteen years Misao has been photographed by her granddaughter Miyoko Ihara as a way to commemorate her life. Little Fukumaru, whose name means circle of good fortune, had joined Misao 8 years ago. Graced with a unique heterochromia iridum (different colored eyes) and a sweet disposition, Fukumaru enjoys doing things like farming, eating and resting with Grandma Misao. A book was published on their companionship titled “Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat.”
