update Jan 2018


It looks like there are 3 new kokeshi pots, a white giant cushion and green giftbox! Also a new regular cat.

Here’s a look at the items:


The cats look so cute in the kokeshi pots! like little bundled up kittens

The white giant cushion can fit 2 normal cats like the other giant cushion.

みかづきさん/Mikazuki San/Hermeowne

Mikazuki San comes for the egg night bed, perching on top of out even when other cars are inside. Could the Japanese name have something to do with Mikazuki Munechika? Hermeowne of course is from Hermione (Harry Potter). I had bonito bitz out when she came.
