Cute Cats For Neko No Hi

Posted on


Today is Neko no Hi (Cat Day) in Japan! This date was picked because 2/22 is pronounced “ni ni ni” which sounds like what a Japanese cat says, “nyan nyan nyan.” This year is extra cat-like, being 2/22/22. Let’s explore some cute ways to celebrate Cat Day!

Watch on YouTube

There are an overwhelming number of cute kitty videos on Youtube. A good place to start would be Motimaru’s Diary. Motimaru is the world record holder for Most-Watched Cat on Youtube, according to Guinness World Records!
