Apparently, most of us think cats look cute – they are, after all, the most-watched genre of videos on Facebook – to the point there are now even TV shows collating them for prime-time viewing.
Felissimo, a Japanese supplier of cat-themed lifestyle goods – including underwear – has created a line of cute Japanese cat gloves where you can wear a kitty’s likeness on the palm of your hand, (previous version featuring cats on the back).
Nuisance Cat Mittens (which translated in Japanese to Jama Neko) are designed so that when you pick up your smartphone on a cold day, your furry-likeness is staring right at you.
“The eyes say, “Yeah, all your high-tech gadgets are nice and all, but have you noticed how awesome I am?”,” observes blog RocketNews24, which shared the news from Japan.
“The thumb portion is touchscreen compatible, and the pattern is positioned so that as you swipe the cat’s paw appears to be waving back and forth to pull your eyes towards it instead of the screen.”
These cute Japanese cat gloves can be bought online directly from Felissimo at 4295 JPY (about US$39). Part of the cost is donated to cat welfare activities.
There are three Nuisance Cats: silver tabby, brown tabby and calico.
