How to turn your cat into Totoro

Does your cat refuse to play? Is he just sleeping all day, getting up only to tuck into his dinner and essentially ignoring you? Don't worry, there are plenty of ways to make your feline furball more fun as Twitter member @Bump_take discovered, whilst allowing him to enjoy his full-time napping.

Give your cat a make-over and turn him into Totoro from Studio Ghibli's 'My Neighbour Totoro'!

If you've not seen this iconic Japanese animation yet, shame on you.

Watch the My Neighbour Totoro trailer:

And this is @Bump_take's feline version:

How to turn your cat into Totoro


1. Wait until your cat is sleeping peacefully.
2. Cut out two round eyes, an oval nose and a round tummy from a sheet of paper. Small scissors such as nail scissors work best for making the holes.
3. Carefully place the cut-outs on your cat, take a photo and send it in to us at hello@elizaflynn.co.uk for your chance to appear on our Facebook page!

Please note: This works best on grey, Totoro-coloured cats.
