While on a walk with his owners, this poor pooch slipped into a badger burrow and was unable to get out. The owners tried to dig him out themselves but underestimated the depth of the hole. They eventually called in emergency services and the fire fighters spent 6 hours and had to dig a 3 meters hole in order to free the dog.
When 88 year old Misa adopted this odd-eyed kitten thirteen years ago, her granddaughter began taking photos of the touching relationship that formed between her and the cat. The friendship between Misa and Fukumaru is now documented in a beautiful photo book entitled, “Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat”.
