The Cat With Three Passports




A girl struggling to fit in. A homeless kitten. An unexpected job offer in an unfamiliar country that changes everything. CJ had a long history of escaping places and people she wasn’t fond of, but for the sake of a silver tabby, she decided to stay in Japan for a while. This decision helped her open up her heart and mind, revisit her way of thinking and reconnect with her estranged family.

Let this heartwarming memoir take you to the land of cats and cherry trees as you read about CJ’s adventures – from the craziness of Furukawa’s naked men festival, the experience of forest bathing and the significance of finding a life purpose or ikigai, to the temples of Takayama, and wonders of Cat Island – you’ll see what a homeless kitten found outside a temple in Japan taught her about an old culture and new beginnings.


‘The Cat With Three Passports’ is an Award winner in the Animals/Pets: Narrative Non-Fiction Category at the 2021 International Book Awards, USA.
