'Noroneko Ken-san' (Ken the Stray Cat) by Tomomi Muramatsu [Kawade Shobo Shinsha Press] 1,470 yen amazon.co.jp

The cat that comes and goes in your garden... the cat that you always meet by chance in the neighborhood... If you like cats, you know the kind of stray cat we are talking about. Even famous writers have this feeling, such as Tomomi Muramatsu, the writer of 'Abusan Monogatari', the Naoki Prize winning book about 21 years spent together with a cat.
While feeding the stray cats that enter his garden, he spontaneously give them names. Eventually, one of the cats becomes irreplaceable. Beginning with Ken, a quiet yet rowdy stray, this attractive volume is full of rugged cats.
