This too too cute for words

I’m particularly taken not with Kitty’s handymeow credentials but rather her penchant for standing up… much like

Seems like this peculiar trait is specific to Japanese cats:

Japanese Standing Cats


Cats have always been very popular in Japan.

Products like Hello Kitty and famous anime movies like Kiki’s Delivery Service are great examples of how much the Japanese adore their feline friends.

Cats are cool and all, but nothing weirds me out more than when a cat does something that is very human-like, such as standing upright on its hind legs.

We came across three great videos showing weird cats that can stand for quite some time.

Cute and adorable… sure.

Completely creepy and unnerving… absolutely.

    I stumbled here through myanimalfamily.blogspot.com, cos of the cat abuse case, truly horrifying, and i do hope whoever’s doing it should stop or be caught.
