First up, this adorable anime kitty just kicking back and relaxing in his big orange bowl of yummy ramen! It comes in a myriad of colors both on Amazon and Redbubble!
If the orange bowl is a bit too bright for you, we have the darling kitty kicking back in a pale bowl. Hey, I get it, not everyone likes bright colors!
Fun Fact: Upper-class people started living with cats in Japan over 1,000 years ago! The middle and lower classes became cat parents a bit later, only a few hundred years ago.
This kawaii kitty eating ramens out of a bright pink bowl is one of my top two favorites! I love the colors and the happy little face on the kitty, don’t you?
Fun fact: Kawaii means “cute” in Japan, and it’s actually an entire movement! Hello Kitty is probably the most famous kawaii kitty. She was originally created in 1974, making her older than me!
Like our pale version of the kitty in the bowl, this one is a more toned-down version of the above shirt. My son prefers this one because he’s not really into the bright pink.
Fun Fact: There is an entire Cat Island in Japan! It’s called Tashirojima Island, and cats actually welcome boats as they pull into port. There’s even a shrine to cats on the island!
Remember I said that the pink bowl cat was one of my top 2 favorite anime cat shirts? Well, here’s my #1 all-time favorite design!
Fun Fact: Cat Cafes are quite popular in Japan, especially for those who can’t have their own kitty at home. There are currently over 150 of them!
All of these adorable anime cat shirts also come in hoodies, long sleeves, and even in dresses (over on Redbubble).
