Moru and Mugi, the Sumo Stable Cats

Translation missing: en.products.general.regular_price $28.00
The Arashio-Beya Sumo Stable in Tokyo is home to twelve wrestlers and two cats. Using a narrative thread woven together by endearing photographs, this book tells the story of how the cats Moru and Mugi came to live there. It tells of the daily routine of the stable through the eyes of both its human and feline occupants. The cats’ personalities are also described, with one being more outgoing and comfortable with the loud sounds of the training room, while the other is more reserved and rarely leaves the sleeping quarters. Not to be forgotten, the book also includes portraits and short biographies of the wrestlers, who share their dedication to the sport with their
animal friends.
