I’m starting to think Japan might just be a magical animal land from a children’s book. We already knew they had owl cafes, and in one of them,  something very special happened recently – even by Japan’s cuteness standards.

Fuku is an owlet who calls Hukulou Coffee Shop in Osaka home. A few days ago, he got a new friend.

Marimo is a kitten and this is his first time meeting Fuku. Initially, they didn’t know what to make of one another.
