Time for the best character in Jojo, Stray Cat. Look at that cat.
Stray Cat is another one of those weird stands that isn’t fully a stand, and sort of a mix between user and stand. This time, it’s a cat that gets resurrected as a weird cat-plant thing. And it’s cute as hell. I love the way the petals suggest the shape of ears, and how the mouth is made from the intersection of three petals. It’s a very clever design, one that looks cat-like while being fully plant. I personally love the weird eye-stalks and filaments. A great look.
Stray Cat has had a lot of designs during it’s existence. In addition to slowly shifting to a rounder, more cat-like head shape, it also suddenly changed to a completely different design in it’s second major appearance, which I’m mixed about. It’s not as fun or clever, but it can certainly be cute on it’s own, and the design has a lot of merit, with those weird spikes and compressed look. It’s odd, but it feels like a fitting evolution for the stand.
Honestly, I could fill the rest of the review with more pictures of Stray Cat being cute, but that would mean dozens of images. It’s just so expressive and fun, which easily makes it one of my favorite stands so far.
I love this cat. It’s a goofy, funny cat-plant with an interesting, memorable, and appealing design.
