Cat Owners In Japan Are Turning Their Pets Into Totoro

Posted on Other Stuff 16

Twitter users are transforming their cats into Totoro, a wood spirit in the Japanese animated film My Neighbor Totoro. While initial designs used simple paper cut-outs glued to the cats’ backs,@t_u_n_a_m_e_l_t has taken cat-modification to another level by using googly-eyes instead. The googly-eye upgrade photos have been retweeted over 12,000 times.

Clever cat related projects continue to be popular in Japan. Photographing felines with anime-eyes recently had a viral moment, as did the famous “box maze” for cats. Dogs have received more attention in Taiwan, where they are being groomed to have geometrically-shaped heads.
