Cat Owners In Japan Are Turning Their Pets Into Totoro
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.

I don’t usually post stuff like this, but… look at the cuteness! <3

P.S. We have 4 cats…


The cats of the Internet would like to remind everyone that you too can have your very own furry Totoro friend right this very minute. All you need is a piece of paper, a pair of scissors, and one patient (or at least very sleepy) kitty.

Afterwards be sure to reward them for looking extra-special-cute with a World’s Best Cat Trophy.

By the way, we do not recommend attempting to recreate the rainy bus stop scene with your new Totoro-cat. Odds are they won’t enjoy it and you’ll quickly regret it. However what many cats do love to do is wear the Inflatable Unicorn Horns For Cats. It even says so on the box.
