It’s not easy being covered in fur. Especially when you have to endure the stifling heat of a Japanese summer. Now hot kitties are sure to get some respite, thanks to a new product that’s already selling out online. While it may look like an everyday bowl, this is actually a whole lot more, with a special ergonomic design that’s especially effective at supporting and cooling a cat’s body.
The product, called the Hie Hie Arumi Nyanko Nabe (Cooling Aluminium Kitty-Cat Pot) retails for 5,392 yen.
While it looks like a simple bowl, anyone who’s ever owned a cat will know just how much kitty’s eyes will light up upon seeing this. At last, a bowl cats can curl up in, without the fear of getting into trouble.
The curve of the bowl’s interior, combined with its roomy dimensions, is said to be perfect for cats of all sizes.
This item is one of a number of "hinyari" (cooling goods) that fill store shelves in summer. While hinyari goods are usually designed for people, to help them sleep and otherwise cope with the long summer days, it’s great to see the concept taking shape in the pet world too.
