Just when you thought you had seen every Japanese trend with cats along comes another one to laugh at. This time cat owners are placing small strips of paper with cartoon eyes in front of their cats giving them often very funny expressions. So grab a pen and let us get ready to make our own…
10 – Angry Cat
These ten I have chosen are what I personally think are the ten very best examples of “cat montage” (neko montaaju)
9 – Angry Cats
I would be angry as well if my owner had drawn pig noses and eyes to make me look like Angry birds extra.
8 – Feeling Sorry
Suddenly I feel really sorry for this cat wit those little sad eyes. But behind that, he is probably wondering what stupid trend his owner is trying to take now.
7 – Hypnotising Cat
This cat has been known to hypnotise his owner into buying the only luxury branded kitty food. But in reality, it doesn’t work on his owner and she only buys him the luxury food because she loves him.
6 – Cat Stress
The cat behind the paper might be fine, but it seems expressions are all in the eyes and just a simple cartoon can make a cat look very stressed indeed.
5 – Big old blues
I find it amazing how a little bit of colour and a funny set of eyebrows changes a normal cat face into something a lot more emotional.
4 – Big eyes, big teeth!
When a cat is startled their eyes are massive! OK, so they are probably not this big, but you get the idea of the image.
3 – Shifty 50
Cats always look at least a little shifty to me. Always looking around, attacking things and people for no reason at all. These eyes could suit just about any cat!
2 – Betty Boop
This just has to be a lady cat, those eyes remind me a lot of the vintage cartoon, Betty Boop! Those who are too young to remember it, you can Google it and you will soon know what I mean.
1 – Crazy Cats
Even behind the image, I am not so sure the cat’s eyes don’t look like the cartoons. Let us just hope the cat is yawning, not monster raving mad.
