This Wildlife Photographer Has A New Assistant: A Friendly Kitten!


Mitsuaki Iwago is a wildlife photographer who takes photos of charming cats he meets on streets around the world. But during one of his travels, he met a friendly little kitten who decided to keep him company while he was busy taking pictures.

Mitsuaki Iwago was busy filming on the island of Okinawa when suddenly, a friendly little ginger kitten approached him. The kitten decided that the photographer may need his help and his company. So the cute little kitty casually walks up to him, lies down by his side, and takes a short nap. After his nap, the kitty climbs up Iwago’s back and sits down on his head! It’s one of the cutest things I have ever seen! Take a look at the adorable video below!

Awwww…that is so cute! Such a friendly little kitty!
