 First, a little back-story on the Nyanko Type Earphone Jack Covers. Japanese manga artist Otako Nekomura is a huge fan of cats, especially cute ones, who was frustrated at the lack of cute cat smartphone accessories – hard to believe, but true. She decided to sketch her ideal kitten-related smartphone accessory on a table napkin and then tweeted it to her followers.

Someone who works for a mobile device accessories firm noticed her tweet and somehow convinced his higher-ups to produce what would be known as Nyanko Type Earphone Jack Covers featuring Mikeneko, Mimi, Shiro and Kuro, Tama, Buchi and Tora. Good thing she didn't accidentally include incorrect measurements on that napkin!
