Wanna Go 2 The Calico Cat Cafe in Shinjuku, Japan?

“I recorded this quick video at a cat cafe in Tokyo last week. The second I tapped on the container of tuna they all came in a full-on cat stampede!” -Dustin T.

Good Morning. Feed Me.

Gunma-Chan’s Big Adventure

Great story from our Japan colleagues at RocketNews24. Gunma is a prefecture in Japan. (Sorta like a district or county- Google wasn’t much help, or I just couldn’t comprehend.) Speaking of “can’t comprehend,” take a look at this. Gunma-Chan is the mascot for, well, Gunma tourism.

Prepare the Squee Rocket for liftoff, Cap’n.

EVERYTHING in Japan has a mascot. Gonna have nightmares dreams about this for sure.

Kittehs, Doughnuts, And Pancakes. (Obvious Combination, No?)

It is an obvious combo if you’re in the Land Of The Rising Sun Smack You In Your Face QTE, aka Japan. Found these photos on Rocketnews 24 (of course,) and according to their story, “A Japanese housewife named Caroline Ingalls [Like Little House. -Ed.] creates these annually on Cat’s Day (22 February in Japan.) She started off with making cat shaped nerikiri, a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer,) then tinted and sculpted into various shapes and styles. The best (or worst) part is, those cats aren’t just decorations, they’re completely edible!”

Thanks for the swell reporting RN24! (And that’s all well and good, but can she overnight a batch of ‘em to California?)

OK, That’s A Mohawk Cat

All of you who can honestly say you’ve seen this type of cat before, raise your hand. And don’t lie.

(Japan, of course.)

Andrew Y. spotted this on RocketNews 24.
