If you're like me, you like your cushions like I like my women: covered
in cats! These cat-covered harem cushions from Japan let you relax
surrounded by cute, comfy, cozy cats... without a bunch of smelly,
messy, fur-shedding, food-demanding felines hogging the couch.
Returning home after yet another nose-to-the-grindstone working day, there's nothing like cuddling up on the couch with four, five, even a half-dozen friendly kittehs. Difficulty: lack of cats. Sucks to be you, huh?
Thanks to Nekobu, Japan's online emporium of cool cat-related products for cat-lovin' humans (and their friends), that's all about to change – even if you already have a cat or two.
The cat-covered harem cushion comes in four different realistically illustrated designs, each of which features five different cats from a distinct region of the world. Above (from left to right) are the “Nobel & Sophisticated Cats of Japan”: Ginger Tiger, Black & White, Japanese Bobtail, Buff & White, and Tabby Tiger.
Above are the “Cute American Cats”: Bombay, Munchkin, American Shorthair, Ragdoll, and Exotic.
Next up are the “Elegant Cats of Europe”: British Shorthair, Abyssinian, Scottish Fold, Russian Blue, and Manx.
Last but not least are the “Exotic Cats of Asia & the Middle East”: Singapura, Egyptian Mau, Persian, Korat, and Birman.
The cushion is designed in such a way that the center cat is sleeping while the pair on either side “pop-up”; snuggling around the owner's waist to provide comfort and support. The reverse side of each cushion is covered in soft but durable medium-blue fabric.
