多分(たぶん)世界一(せかいいち)のバカ = “Probably the dumbest cat in the world.”

Nekoyoke

Spend one day in a Japanese residential neighborhood, and you will come across plastic bottles filled with water lined along the road. You can spot them against a wall, around plants, cars and home entrances.

But what are they for?

The tweet below will give you a clue!

“A great example that shows why using bottles as cat repellent is obsolete.”

Yes, you read that right. People use bottles to repel cats and prevent them from, well, doing cat stuff. In Japanese, it’s called nekoyoke, or cat repelling. It stays popular in Japan, despite no supporting evidence that it actually scares cats away.

Speaking of water

Far from being repelled by water, some cats even enjoy our sinks.

No one can resist a cute kitten… Let alone 3!

Last week, blogger and Twitter user @NipponKawauso realized he was being followed home by two adorable kittens.

後(うし)ろから誰(だれ)かついてくると思(おも)ったら。どうしよう、、、、=

“I felt something was following me. What to do…”

Yielding to their adorable meowing, @NipponKawauso decided to take them home, but not before doing a quick check of the are, which led him to discover a 3rd kitten abandoned in a box.
