Life of the wanderers: Instagrammer catches street cats in action

Cats have an uncanny ability to fit into small spaces, whether into a glass bottle at home or through a tiny gap in the fence. When they’re out on the streets, this agility provides them with ways to seek shelter from the elements and predators.

A Japanese photographer has chosen to document street cats in Japan via his Instagram account, where he captures the cats' flexibility as they fit into drain holes along the pavement, the peek of a tail or wave of a paw the only evidence that they are even there.

Other photos show the cats with their heads poking out of the drain holes, observing the world around them.

It is all very endearing and surreal. Check out some of the photographs in the gallery above.
