I don't think I can adequately convey the happiness that these images - by Japanese photographer Miyoko Ihara - bring me, so I'll let them speak for themselves. Miyoko's been documenting the day-to-day adventures of her 87-year-old grandmother, Misao, and her "odd-eyed" cat, Fukumaru, for close to a decade now, and the photographs have recently been compiled in a book. Below, a few stand-outs.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!
