Neko Nabe Phenomenon From Japan And Goma

Goma's Hepper pod obsession lead me to do this post today. Sen-chan, Tama-chan and Tom over at The poupounette blog pointed out that Goma sleeping in the pod is so much like "Neko-Nabe", famous cat video from Japan. Neko-Nabe, direct translation will be Cat Cooking Pod. Traditionally, Japanese use this clay pod for cooking various hot dishes and they are commonly used in Japanese household. The whole Neko-Nabe phenomenon started from a guy name Elephant, who simply put those nabes(pans) in row and waited until cats will curl up in them. I think Japanese people find this video particularly heart-warming because of warm Nabe food. I love how 1,2,3,4 kitties pile on top of each other making the Nabe dish very very full!! It is just sooo funny!! Japanese people love Neko-Nabe so much that they even made Neko-Nabe DVD and Photo book!! OMG!! I want them!! Those pictures below are sample images from the photo book. Oh Goma, maybe I should make a photo book about you and Hepper pod!! Disclaimer: No kittehs were harmed or be eaten by humans in this post.

GOMA: It lookz SO MUTCH funz! I WANTS 2 JOIN!!

And...Goma must try this...

Wow! We're thrilled that our comment led to this great post! Wonderful photos! #1 is talking about putting her big nabe in the middle of the table to see what happens.... I think I (Tom...) may be a bit too big, though!

Your blog always makes me ridiculously happy.
I found it when cuteoverload.com linked to the post about the Japanese "cat house."
I really like cuteoverload.com and ICHC, but your site actually makes me much happier. It's very much fun seeing what Goma is up to and cute Goma pictures and your funny comics. I feel blessed to have found your site.

That said, it looks like so much fun to be a cat curled up in a bowl on top of other cats!! LOL
