Kinako the Cat melted Jiji the Grump's heart. It is a light-hearted story told in photos about humans and animals helping each other through tough times, fun times, and furry times. It is a book about their friendship and this project needs your help!

                   Your help in making this happen will be amazing !!

     They are a human and a cat. Then the cat-hating-grandpa and the shy little (now huge) cat became buddies. Very close buddies. I promise that you will feel warm after you finish this book.
     This book is a great gift to yourself, as a present, just because you want to support a cat lover, or are interested in how it's like for a cat in a Japanese house. From children to adults, any person can enjoy this photo book.
     My main goal is to bring a warm, peaceful feel to the book owner.

- Book Details -
This is a cute little photo book aimed at cat lovers young and old.

You can choose either a soft cover or hard cover (both ~18x18cm / 7x7in) with either ordinary or premium paper quality:

     - Soft Cover   (ordinary/ premium)
     - Hard Cover  (ordinary/ premium)

I'll also make a PDF ebook available for those that support Kinako and Jiji!

- A bit about me! - 

Hi, I'm Akiko, I grew up with Jiji and since Kinako came into our lives, I want to share the moments where Kinako helped to open up Jiji's heart. I am a photographer living in Tokyo and am getting started in an area that is new for me. It's my first time on Kickstarter...a bit nervous, but I hope that this book will bring a bit of warmth and laughter into your lives!
