One of their latest pictures is setting the bar for perfect timing and cuteness, however, as @ttt_zegu952 has on multiple times stumbled upon a cat taking refuge from the rain at a shrine--a miniature shrine for kitties, that is. Source: @ttt_zegu952 The shrine itself is surrounded by a number of cat trinkets and statues, including maneki neko (beckoning cat), a traditional Japanese figurine of a cat thought to summon good fortune to its owner. Judging by a number of pictures, it appears to be the shrine located in the the middle of the woods on the "Cat Island" of Tashirojima. 雨宿りする猫が奇跡的だった… pic.twitter.com/XpvCb6XnxQ— 狐仙人乃弟子 トコノ オルタ (@ttt_zegu952) September 20, 2020 @ttt_zegu952 also has the fortune of finding many of the cats that surround the shrine, which not only has a roof to protect from rain, but is a popular feeding area for the island's kitties. Legend says that a fisherman, who bonded with the island's cats and used their presence to predict fish behavior, mourned and enshrined a cat at the spot.
