Look at the manga my son has been reading recently.  Two of my favorite things:  History and Cats!


Kitties represent historical figures, and this manga tells the history of Japan.

I asked my son, “How do you know which cat is which?”  He said by their clothes and facial expressions.

Samurai kitties!  I have always wanted to see a cat with a sword.

Oh, and by the way….that kitty above is putting his whole paw in his mouth.  “Why?” you ask.   There was a famous real-life samurai from Aizu in Fukushima Prefecture who could put his whole hand in his own mouth….and you thought samurais were famous only for their swordplay.
