Nyantomo: The Kitty-Shaped Hot Water Bottle

Do you wish you had a cat, but your apartment doesn’t allow pets?

Do you you crave the warmth of a furry friend, but hate cleaning up after living creatures other than yourself?

Well, has Japan got the product for you! A brand new hot water bottle, shaped just like your favorite fluffy friend!

The special ergonomic bottle is designed to fit perfectly in the hyper-realistic cat-like covering, and will stay warm for up to 6 hours! Now, for the low, low price of only ¥6990 (not including shipping)!

I’m not sure what’s worse, the fact that it’s just realistic enough to be SUPER CREEPY, or the fact that I actually kind of want one. I miss the feeling of my kitty gettin’ cozy on my lap, and this looks like a reasonable facsimile of the experience, as long as you don’t mind the fact that it will NEVER WAKE UP.

Almost $75 is way too rich for my blood, but if there’s a Spring sale any time soon, I might be seriously tempted…what do you think? Would you want this snuggle buddy, or is it too taxidermic for your tastes?

(Hat-tip to Tokyo Bounce for pointing this out! Oh Japan, you so crazy…)

    7000 yen? Gosh, I thought it was cheaper (and was secretly planning to buy one). Sadness!

    If you buy one, you are to name it Mr. Wiggles.

    It kinda looks like my cat, Lisa, in the second and third photos!! I should buy this as her proxy, since she won’t let me touch her.
