What's that you say? (In my imagination, anyway) Weird pet costumes are nothing new? You might be correct, but these are no mere costumes. These sushi cats - Neko Zushi - have a comic-book style origin story:

Neko-Sushi is an extremely unusual life-form consisting of a cat on top of a portion of sushi rice...

There are several academics who have devoted their lives to the study of these creatures. According to a number of these, Neko-Sushi make use of gaps in space to come to us from an alternate dimension. Beyond these "gaps" lies the world of the Neko-Sushi in which, it is recently understood, lies the true identity of the cats that dwell with us here in the human dimension.

They also have their own app...

And their own existential questions...

We know the rule of Sushi - fish on top of rice.
On the other hand we know the rule cats eat fish.
Cats sit on rice, where fish is supposed to be - why?
Contradiction and mystery in this world is always center of the criptic questions among Japanese zen monks.
And this is another Zen question -why Cats sit on rice instead of fish, not eating them? - the graet zen question, which proves the magical power of Sushi Cats.

..plus a movie. That will MELT THE FUCK out of your mind like so much uni sashimi at room temperature.
