‘The cats living at the shrine’ by Ugajin shows a day around a shrine where feline 'have taken over'.
A balanced series, charming, playful, funny and slightly unpredictable, like cats are.
Ugajin has an eye for the odd in details. It is hard not to laugh when seeing the photo of a deadpan cat sitting inside a blue umbrella. Typical cat behaviour… why do that? why not?
