Yesterday in Japan was February 22 (=2/22), which could be read as ‘nyan, nyan, nyan’ in Japanese, the same as the onomatopoeia for the sound a cat makes. That’s why it is the Day of the Cat in Japan!
Online, cat videos and cat pictures are a holy and sacred oasis. They are so popular that cat videos many times have billions of views.
To commemorate the day, we want to share with you a photo gallery full of cosplayers that sport the cat-look! Enjoy Cat Day!
‘Can’t think straight! These cosplayers in cat-style are too beautiful!’
