Last Saturday, December 21, we went to Nyanpaku Cat Expo; an event featuring a full lineup of talks and lectures related to cats conducted cat specialists, a gallery of 300 extremely adorable cat photos, art exhibition from Japanese cat-themed picture book “Namae no Nai Neko” (なまえのないねこ, A Cat Without A Name), and of course, a marketplace selling goods for cats and cat-themed fashion items.
Instead of focusing on the talks and lectures, this feature will focus more on the cat photo gallery and exhibition, and if you love cats, you should never miss this!
See what this cat is hugging while it’s sleeping! A slice of salmon fillet!
This cat’s name is Mugi.
This cat is too cute to be true! Her name is Nyaomi!

You know that cats love sticking their tongues out, and they look silly, but adorable when doing that!

So cute and squeezable!

One of our favorites! This cat is sleeping in front of a sento (public bath).
The art exhibition of Namae no Nai Neko features many cat paintings, and this one is our favorite!
There are many cat-themed merchandises to purchase from this exhibition, but our favorite is this canvas tote bag!
