Cat Sushi Overload

Remember this story from May of last year? Cats with Sushi? Well….they’re back.

Sorta kinda.

THIS time, they’re little vending machine figures. In Japan (of course) they’re called “Gachapon or Gashapon;” little painted figures in capsules.

[Memo to Mugumogu: How about a Maru figure? If you can fit him in the capsule. -Ed.]

Caturday Decisions

[So, do I sack out in the nice, fancy house the Hoomin got me- didn't ASK, BTW- just went out and bought it- OR, do I snuggle in this box here? Is this really a tough decision?]

Epic Mealtime On Bunny Island—The Sequel

Let’s rewind back to June- we posted this story about Sender-Inner Scott Y. going to BUN ISLAND and getting swarmed by BUNS.

Not a bad way to go.

But luckily he survived the BUN onslaught, and this is his wrap-up video- he says “The trailer include snippets from most of the videos in the series (not all,) and the best highlights from each of those videos.”

And here is a playlist of all the BUN videos he took!

Another Day, Another Cat Café

Update: Last Saturday, we told ya about Chat L’Heureux, a new Cat Café that was due to open soon in Montreal. We just got a tweet from them, and they report “We will announce the opening date in the coming days. Actually, we are in pre-opening!”

And today, we know of another Cat Café open- predictably, in The Big J. So let’s go 6455.8 miles and see what’s what. Here’s a map and man, it was TOUGH to find.

It’s called Cat Café Monta. Fair enough.

Looks like your standard surgically clean Tokyo Cat Café.

At this point let’s thank Andrew Y. for the RN24 find.

Quoting RN, “Customers can stop by for as little as 10 minutes, for which the charge on weekdays is 200 Yen…..”

cc-14
“A full hour on a weekday will cost you 1,000Y.”

cc-15
“You can get a full-day pass for 2,000 yen (3,000 on weekdays.”)

cc-19
A full day pass. Works for me. Now I just need to convince our family CFO my wife to spend the money for two airfares.

cc-21
Wait- it’s a business expense! We can write it off.

cc-23
Gotta try and sneak this by Meg on the monthly expense report.

More Zen From Thing Two

How about some Caturday Zen from Japan? Cuteporter Caroline D. says, “Guremike did two awesome ‘If it fits, I sits’ photo shoots this week!” First we have The Circle (not Maru, though):

Caturday In The Big J

Got this email a couple of days ago from someone named Nekoore. This is what he (or she) said:

“Hello. I will recommend my videos. My pet’s name-Kikunosuke. -Rikimaru. Multiple videos! -Cat Jumping through the Dyson.”

I like someone who gets right to the point.

Weasel Noms Kitteh (猫とイタチ_): Film At Eleven

Wait! Forget that! No one uses film, and you don’t have to wait until the Eeeeeeeleven O’Clock News, when there’s YouTube! Of course, this is from The Big J.

FAVE FRAME™!

From The Look In Ohagi’s Eyes….

…you can pretty well guarantee that SOMEthing is about to happen. We’ve got some Bonus Butt Wigglin’ going on here, too.

We’re Still A Little Rattled

If you were around earlier today…you know that we, um, weren’t. So now C.O. is settling back into our perPETual Cute Groove- and first up after the GREAT BLACK OUT OF 2014 is….some total weirdness from The Big J.

Not really too sure what’s going on here. This Big Yellow Thing (allegedly a pear) is hopping up and down, and then jumps in the drink. Really all ya need to know. RN24 says this is “Funasshi, Japan’s squiggly-wiggly pear mascot from Funabashi City in Chiba!”

Well, everyone knows that.

BUT WAIT! ACT NOW and you can watch this one, too! Call me, maybe!
