Cats in Japan Are Now Dressing Up Like Totoro

Halloween is still a good few months away; but for the Japanese, there’s never a bad time to make their cats resemble Totoro. The “Totoro” that we’re talking about is of course the wood spirit from the Hayao Miyazaki classic “My Neighbor Totoro.” Cat owners are using basic paper cut-outs in order to achieve the googly-eye look (or even plastic googly eyes, in some cases). The Japanese sure do love their felines and Miyazaki films–and who can blame them, really?
