A Japanese company introduces us to a new way of being a crazy cat person. Check out these eye masks and paw socks that are guaranteed to bring out your inner cat.

Okay, okay. I know it is no secret that every now and then I get a giggle from some of the crazy dog and cat things that come on the market out of Japan. I mean, seriously… cat shaped bread? Just because? Umm, okay.

But, they may be on to something with the latest thing we’ve found: Cat Eye masks and toe pads. Japanese retailer Felissimo specializes in cat products, and the may have got the cat by the tail with these newest feline goodies.

The cat eye masks are designed to cover your eyes at night to sleep, even allowing you to include a calming warm or cold compress to soothe the eyes. The best part? They were designed to make it seem as if you and a ginormous cat were playing peek-a-boo together. With a marketing pitch of imagining a lovely (and apparently large) cat covering your eyes and being there with you, Felissimo wants to lull you to cat zen!

If that’s not enough…they also have something for those barking dogs–comfy and cozy toe pads that’ll make you feel all kitteh inside. Claiming the best part of a cat is the mushy paw pads we love to love, they’ve made socks that mimic cat’s feet–from the squishy paw pad to toe separators so you too can have claws like a cat. I mean, who wants those cheapo little foam dividers when getting a mani/pedi? Not me. As their site says, I want to turn my feet into cats and let the relaxing time begin!

And, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that you can also purchase furbulous headbands that will make the cat transformation complete. Made of microfiber that’s so comfortable Felissimo mandates that you must love it, we have to say, you just might when you find out that sales of the band and all their cat products actually help Japanese cat shelters. Felissimo donates a percentage of each sale from their cat line, and that alone makes these fun things worth checking out!

If you are interested in any of the products, you can find them on Felissimo’s site. But beware… there may be some cat calls to follow!
