In celebration of International Cat Day, this is our pick of the very best cat-shaped food

Cats rule the internet. And Japan (the Japanese seem very keen on anything cute). So, to celebrate International Cat Day, here are some examples of the cutest cat-shaped food from around the internet (many of which are from Japan).


Tiny kitty sweets

Just look at these playful and sleepy little kittens, made by a Japanese housewife called Caroline, roaming around a cake! If this isn't cute overload, your heart is made of steel.

Cat cake pop 

Cake pop, we can't stop – that is, we can't stop looking at the cute faces with heart noses.

Animal macarons

The too-cute-for-words Japanese kitty macaron on the right is joined by a frog, a dog, a chick... and whatever that pink thing is at the front. Seriously, what is it? A seal?

Coffee cat

It's like that scene in Harry Potter where Hermione changes into a cat. Created by a Japanese dude who likes drawing on his lattes, this Harry Potter kitty is trapped in the froth. Who can save it? We can. Slurp.

Cat cronut

Cronuts are fashionable. Cats are fashionable. This is the chicest snack you've ever seen in your life, right? 


Cat sushi

This may be a good way to tempt your kids into trying Japanese food. If we don't eat it first (cue evil laugh).

Kitty marshmallows

The epitome of cuteness, these marshmallows are made by a Japanese company and designed to melt into the top of your coffee, or hot chocolate. Get us some of these... NOW! (Sorry, sugar rush.)
