This Saturday, February 22, is 猫の日 neko no hi or Cat Day here in Japan, due to the fact that 2/22 can be pronounced nyan-nyan-nyan, which is “meow meow meow” in Japanese. While the number of households keeping dogs is slightly higher, the Japanese are big fans of cats as they make excellent companions in Japan’s smaller homes, and if you’ve got one of those kotatsu heater tables for them to sleep inside they’ll love you forever. If you’re a cat person, why not consider going to a “cat cafe” on your next visit to Tokyo? You can spend a few hours relaxing with some new furry friends while enjoying coffee and a light lunch. J-List has hundreds of cute cat-related products from Japan on the site, from Lucky Cat statues that bring luck into your home or business to cute cats for your phone to the cat tail that will change the way you view catgirls forever.
