Japanese Art Students Go Fantastically Wacky with Giant Wool Cat Head

a

Now here’s something you don’t see every day. Needle-felting expert Housetsu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art recently stitched together an incredibly realistic-looking giant cat head out of sheep’s wool felt. The fantastically wacky creation, which can be worn on the head like a mask, was made as a project for the only class in the world that specializes in cat needle-felting.

Sato and his students modeled the result of their hard work in a series of wonderfully bizarre photos that has been gaining well-deserved attention on the web. The marvelous cat head, which looks so lifelike it might as well have been Photoshopped, transforms regular people into zany human-feline hybrids that are both startling and amusing to behold.

The unique creation will be on display at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum from April 18-23, 2015. According to the talented artists, more giant cat heads may be available for rental or sale after the exhibition.

An exclusive New York social club is only open to dogs and their human owners

b

Sometimes you want to take your laptop to a cafe and have your four-legged friend accompany you. Sometimes you want your dog to socialize with other dogs but can’t find an appropriate space for that to happen. And sometimes you want to socialize with people, but only dog people. Enter Ruff Club!

This New York establishment is a dog-friendly social club located in a really cool century-old tavern in downtown Manhattan. Dog owners have to pay a yearly subscription and in return they get space with free Wi-Fi and locally-roasted coffee. Unfortunately not everyone can join the club – you’ll have to own a dog (obviously) and have your furry friend pass a temperament test. The social club even has a scholarship program for low-income owners with a rescue, service or retired military/fire/police dog.

Only in NYC!
