Akiko DuPont has been photographing her grandfather, Jiji, since she was a girl. One day, 94-year-old Jiji’s life was turned upside-down by Kinako the cat.
Since the War ended, for 64 years, Jiji commuted to his office, but in 2009 he was sent to the hospital. The doctor said he was sick. The once outgoing man gradually lost his interest in life and became grumpier than ever. It was around that time that her granddaughter brought him the cat.
They have become best friends. Kinako melted the grumpy old man’s heart. Take a look at this extraordinary friendship.
