Japanese Owner Documents His Cats Obsession With Paper Sliding Doors

Anyone who lives with cats and owns a Shoji, those traditional Japanese paper sliding doors, knows that the required maintenance for paper is a lot more frequent because cats are the natural enemy of a shut shoji door.

Japanese Twitter user Kokonananya (@kokonananya) knows this very well as his cats are obsessed with them. 

Every once in a while he posts on Twitter funny photos of them causing shoji door havoc. 

This last time, however, Kookonananya caught his cats red-pawed at the crime scene, and their adorable reaction was priceless.

These cats are living the life! I mean, who wouldn't want a personal chef?

While we're sitting here with our cup of noodles, JunsKitchen has created a full course meal for his cats! 

As written by Jun, "I tried to make a traditional-style Japanese meal for my cats! It's a set menu (miso soup, rice with furikake, and fish) except the food is all made out of cat-safe ingredients."

Sounds delicious!

Japanese Design Studio Offers a Cat Friendly Modern Apartments And We Are Starting To Pack

Sim-Plex Design Studio designs a chic pet-friendly modern apartment in Hong Kong for a young couple and an elderly parent. The design of the living abode is specifically created to accommodate a cat and a parrot within the living situation. The Hong Kong-based firm focuses on fostering a rather divided contemporary layout that will allow both parties to have the option to experience the privacy and the joys of communal living. However, a key feature of the distribution of elements within the pet-friendly modern apartment was assuring that the cat and parrot are not in direct contact as one can predict what would happen given what we know of how cats interact with birds. As a result, the flat accommodates the parrot with a sizable cage next to a west-facing window, while the cat receives "a litter tray and a space to play and move around." We are in love! Check out these cute photos. Via: Trend Hunter

Turn Your Cat Into A Cute Train Conductor With These Cardboard Scratcher Trains

Thanks to Japanese retailer Felissimo, even cats will get to pretend-travel distances far and wide in fancy cardboard trains! What's great about it being made of cardboard is that it also acts as a cardboard scratcher for the cats, so it's not only cute but practical. There are loads of other ways a cat can make use of the trains, like poke its paws through the various holes or climb on top. The trains are probably ideal for cat owners with more than one feline in the house, since Felissimo offers all three colors as a 3-month subscription-style service where one arrives each month. Orders can be made online, with each train available at a cost of 2,748 yen (USD$25). Via: Grapee

The Japanese Tradition of Rice Harvest Season Continues With Giant Animal Sculptures Made Of Straw

Autumn is the rice harvest season in Japan. Every year, farmers make sure that the leftover rice straw, known as "wara", does not go to waste. Japanese artist, Niigata, has found a very creative way of using these leftover rice husks by hosting an annual event called "Wara Art Festival". Ever since 2008, the straw has been used as a material to make giant sculptures exhibited at Uwasekigata Park. All of the monuments are handcrafted out of wooden rods that serve as the spine of the sculptures and dried straw molded on the frame. Each handicraft takes about a week to be completed.
