I gotta say, in all honesty, that Masayuki Oki’s photos are some of the best things I’ve seen in a while.

The Japanese photographer spends his time wandering around the streets of Tokyo taking snapshots of the city’s colorful stray cats and he really captures their fun-loving personalities in a unique and enlightening way.

Take some time with these photos and we think you’ll be a fan of Oki’s pictures, just like we are.


1. The gang’s all here.

Who wants to join the party?!?!


2. I have a feeling these two might be related.

What do you think?


3. Not sure what’s going on here, but I like it.

Maybe she just really loves that pole?


4. A good place to chill out.

Anyplace will do, really…


5. Portrait of a kitty at night.

She looks very serious…


6. Hanging on for dear life.

Is this the actual inspiration for those “Hang in There!” posters?


7. I want both of them!

How adorable are they?


8. It’s like an optical illusion.

One goes this way, one goes that way.


9. Do you need a massage?

You look a little tense.


10. Doing her morning exercises?

And one, and two, and three, and four.


11. The cat and the guy in this photo have the right idea.

It’s always nap time!


12. Looks like someone just caught their lunch.

I hope it goes down easy!


Those cats are just delightful!
