So… There’s a Cat Paw Scented Handcream, and A… Back-of-a-cat-head Perfume

perfume-olor-cabeza-gato

Look, we’re not saying that weird stuff comes out of Japan, it’s just that… weird stuff does tend to come out of Japan. Of course, maybe it’s just weird to us, whereas any native Japanese person won’t even blink at the mention of a Cat Paw Scented Handcream, or a Back-Of-A-Cat’s-Head Perfume. Whatever the cultural observation to be made on the existence of this product, the fact remains that it appears to be real. It’s hard to tell what’s really going on from a translated page, but it seems that the hand cream contains cosmetic industry buzzword components, like hyaluronic acid and collagen and has been specially formulated to recreate a pleasant version of the scent found in cat paws. Same story for the perfume, though it seems to be the kind that you spray on fabric. The hand cream costs in the vicinity of $10, while the perfume is closer to $23.

Aw: Cat Gloves Make Your Index Finger Look Like A Tail, Work With Smartphones

cat-tail-gloves

That headline pretty much sums up the product. It’s just a quirky little glove with a cat printed on the back, and if you wiggle your finger across your smartphone’s screen, it looks like a wagging cat tail or something. They’re obviously Japanese, where we imagine this sort of thing wouldn’t have people shaking their heads in bewilderment as we think they’ll do here. They seem to cost around 3,980 Yen, which is around $33.

Girl Makes $700 Cat Bags

realistic-cat-bags-3

No, these are not taxidermied. They’re hand-crafted bags made by Japanese artist Pico. She makes them one at a time, probably takes forever, and so feels entitled to charge $700 for them. If I were to spend ungodly hours making cat bags, I probably would add a zero to that figure, but that’s just me. They’re actually up for sale on a Japanese Yahoo Auction website, so maybe $700 is what one of them sold for while other may fetch different prices (after reading another article on the topic, that’s exactly what it is. Still… $700?!). I’m not sure since everything is in Japanese and I can’t find proper information. So instead of being an informative post, just revel in pictures of super cute kitty purses and if you’re feeling adventurous, try to navigate the links to figure out how to get your own.

Got The Kitty Keyboard Syndrome? Fix It With The Neko Pochi Anti-Cat Keyboard Cover

neko-pochi-anti-cat-protection-keyboard-cover-1

Cats are great most of the time, expect when they decide that your keyboard is the best place to take a nap. And of course, they take this decision only when you’re actually working, because what fun would it be otherwise? The Neko Pochi Anti-Cat Keyboard Cover tries to deal with this reality by providing you a clear plastic cover that can withstand cats up to 10kg (about 22 lbs), yet allows you to keep working even when your feline visitor is attempting to hijack your productivity. It covers most standard keyboards, and comes in clear, yellow, and blue colors. And even if you don’t have a cat, the cover can be useful for setting down your phone or tablet and keeping an eye on your notifications.

The only problem is the price: $74! It’s imported from Japan, granted, but at that price you might as well buy your cat some catnip and get him high every time you need to get something done. Or, you know… not be a pushover and just shoo him off.

The Mewgaroo Hoodie Has a Special Pouch To Carry Your Cat In

mewgaroo-1

You love your cat and want him with you at all times; in this respect you’re a normal human being. Now, since you love him so much, you could always carry him around in your arms (if he lets you)… but why be so primitive when you can don a hoodie specially made for the occasion? The Mewgaoo Hoodie has a special pouch that’s large enough to accommodate a kitty. There’s a removable liner so things don’t get too gross in there. And to further emphasize that this is a cat-centric garment, the hoodie features cat ears on the hood, and cat paws on the sleeves. So by buying this piece of clothing you accomplish a few things: you provide your feline friend with a more comfortable vehicle, and you proudly proclaim to the world that you may have a… robust love of cats. Nothing too weird with that, to be honest, and at ?5,980 (about $50), it doesn’t cost a fortune.

Connected Smart Litter Weighs Your Cat’s Poo, Keeps Track Of Its Health

tailio-1

Cats are sleeping and pooping machines by design. And despite their limited use, we love them and want to make sure they stay healthy. To that end, a San Diego company called Pet Wireless has created the Tailio, a connected smart litter. After connecting to your home’s Wifi, the built-in scale starts keeping track not only of your cat’s weight as it does its business, but of the weight of its poo and pee as well. A healthy feline stays more or less at a constant weight, and so do its excrements; any unusual fluctuations could indicate a health issue. Tailio will send all the data to the cloud where it’ll be analyzed and communicated to you.

Aside from looking for possible health concerns, you can use Tailio to keep track of your cat’s growth, or to assess the effectiveness of a weight loss program. And if you fancy yourself a cat lover and a data nerd, a $99 pledge will get you your very own Tailio.
