There is one cat at the local pet shop that has been waiting a long time for someone to bring him home. He has reached adulthood alone in his cage, avoided by potential owners for petty reasons like not being cute enough or being snotty. His fortune changes one day when an elderly gentleman named Kanda comes into the store and chooses to take him home. As a widower left behind by his grown-up children, Kanda seeks a feline companion to alleviate his solitude.

At times humorous and others heartwarming, Ojisama to Neko follows Kanda and the newly named Fukumaru as they experience the joys of living together and learning about each other.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Ojisama to Neko has been published in English as A Man & His Cat by Square Enix Manga since February 11, 2020.

One thing you have to know about this manga is that it is just pure. The story of how an elderly man and a cat find the joys of life together just warms your heart. Both of them go through various struggles- Fukumaru coming in terms that he is loved and the gentleman dealing with the passing of his wife. And this is revealed gradually though the chapters. So once we have a very light hearted one and other times the themes are heavier but it always ends in the man and the cat helping each other. So the result is a adorable slice of read more

I have never owned a cat before but this manga made me feel like i had. This series will pull all of your heart strings. I fell in love with this captivating story from day 1. The character development throughout this story is amazing I instantly fell in love with both the main characters. I have recommended this series to all of my friends and they all think im gay. I really hope im not the only person who loves this manga.

The manga starts with a fairly good art style but you could see that it could use some minor improvements. The latest chapter read more

I think I've cried more times reading this manga than reading any other thing. Not even a sad story has made me cry so constantly. Perhaps with the exception of one chapter or another, the tears have been a constant.

Whether it's from laughter at the typical struggles of a cat owner (I have 4 cats trust me everything here is incredibly accurate) or of sadness from learning more about our adorable and handsome number one cat dad life or just from the pure wholesomeness... The tears will always come.

It's simulteanously the best and most heartbreaking thing to see Fukumaru getting called a "good boy" and read more

I hate this manga so much, every chapter kept squeezing my heart and tears were not stopping.

I have never owned a cat before but reading this manga made me desperately want a cat. This is the first ever manga that made me cry multiple times in a row- IT'S SO SWEET AND HEARTWARMING LIKE GODDAMN JUST LET ME READ WITHOUT HAVING TEARS IN MY EYES FOR GOD SAKE!

It also goes in-depth on loneliness but not in a dramatic way. Even though we never get to see the full backstory of the Ojisama, I still cry for him even though I only know a small portion read more
