    Kind CatPoWeeks Hardcover Book

    This cover features a photograph of “kind cat” Po, an overnight celebrity from his cameo in Kaoru Fukaya’s hit comic, “The Cat that Wanders the Night.”

    One day, news cameraman Yasusuke Ota spotted a cat in a nearby park. When he fed the cats there, the one cat waited politely for all other cats to finish eating before approaching the food. The cat was filthy, and teased often. Ota named the cat Po and watched over him. Ota’s growing concern eventually led him to bring Po home. The cats already in the home fought Po at first, but he never fought back. This led the other cats to open their hearts to Po, and they all grew close. Po even cared for other foster cats that joined their home. Of all the cats Ota has met and cared for, Po will always have a special place in his heart.
    With this Weeks book, you can keep Po by your side and always feel the warmth of this kind cat.

    The front of the book shows Po in a cute pose with his eyes closed and head tilted. The back of the book shows the back of his big, round body that you can’t help but love!

    Please Read Before You Buy

    In order to provide you with the most satisfaction for your product, we've compiled a list of warnings, potential issues, and tips to keep in mind for this particular product. Please be sure to read this information carefully before placing your order.

    Test fountain pens before regular use

    The Hobonichi Techo's Tomoe River paper is designed to prevent bleed-through, but some fountain pens and water-based ink pens are not compatible with this paper. When switching to a new pen, we recommend testing the pen somewhere in the book, such as the back memo pages, to see if the ink bleeds through or takes an especially long time to dry.

    Keep away from moisture and humidity

    This cover uses paper products, so please keep it away from moisture and humidity as it may result in distortion or tears.

    Not for use with Clear Cover

    The PP coated surface of this cover makes it incompatible with the PVC plastic Clear Cover. The products may become warped or stuck together, which would also make it difficult to open and close the book.

    Cover corners are slightly bumpy

    The corners of the cover contain light traces of press marks and lumps. This is an unavoidable part of the manufacturing process.

    Color may vary slightly based on viewing screen

    The color of the product may be slightly different in actuality than compared to how it appeared on a computer or smartphone screen.
