Fabulous exhibit opening at the Japan Society in New York: http://www.japansociety.org/page/programs/gallery/life-of-cats Be sure to check out the videos!

There's a delightful book on the subject, Cats in Ukiyo-e: Japanese Woodblock prints of Utagawa Kuniyoshi, by Nobuhisa Kaneko

Went to see the exhibit a couple of weeks ago before it closed. Interesting. Had lots of old prints featuring cats in all different roles in the lives of the Japanese. Here's a pic:

Outside the museum, there is a giant Hello Kitty on the corner of the street. People are encouraged to put toys in there. It will be displayed at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo!

They showed a fantastic movie, Neko Samurai, every typical samurai movie trope translated into a cat vs. dog plot.
