Cats Wearing Kimonos Is A Thing In Japan


Is it just me or are Japanese pet-owners always up to something new and cool? The latest and greatest cat-themed trend in Japan just might be the most adorably pawsome yet. In Japan, cats wearing kimonos is the new ‘it-thing’ and all the cool cats are doing it.

In Japan, both kimonos and cats are pretty popular, so it only makes sense that the two have finally collided together. Kimonos are traditional Japanese robes typically only worn for special occasions. The cats in kimonos on this list may or may not be celebrating anything special but they sure look adorable all dressed up.

Cats wearing kimonos are even cuter than expected, causing people from all over the world to covet a little kimono for their feline friend. As a result, there are now cat kimonos available for sale on Amazon. And yes, of course I’m ordering some for my cats, right meow!
