More from the basket of “Why but the why the hell not?” comes these new cat heads that you can get customised and ordered from Japan.

These ultra realistic heads are courtesy of Housetsu Sato, a Japanese based artist who specialises with working with wool as his preferred medium. He started designing them after making one for a school festival and it took off with the students and the demand began. The heads look like the real deal thanks to the woollen texture, fur markings and the freaky eyes that you’ll find yourself drawn to!

Nothing like waiting for public transport looking something like this:

In case you’re thinking these look cool but they must cost a fair bit…then you’d be correct. You’re looking at shelling out ¥648,000 or over $6,400! But if you have the cash to go around, then head on over to the Japanese Dwango site to place your order.

Train Riding Cat Spotted In Tokyo

From the land that brought you the black squid ink burger comes something just as cool and different. Spotted on the Seibu Ikebukuro Line recently was a cat minding his own business and travelling on the trains like an ordinary commuter.

Here are some quotes from passengers who have been travelling with this feline.

“Looks like this cat is on his way home after a day of hanging out in ikebukuro.”

Sometimes on occasion, he’ll even have a travelling companion with him…everyone needs a friend at times.

He sits nice and neat on a seat to himself never taking up space for other passengers.cat train4 cat train5

But the best part is when the carriage is relatively empty and he can really kick back and relax!

But he always pays his own way!
