Dream Kotasu For Pets!!

I recieved a e-mail from Kush, Goma blog reader about this Japanese product called "Dream Kotatsu for Pets" by Doggy Man. Yeah everybody shold be wondering what is Kotasu?? According to Wikipedia, A kotatsu is a low, wooden table frame covered by a futon,or heavy blanket, upon which a table top sits. Underneath is a heat source, often built into the table itself. Kotatsu are used almost exclusively in Japan. The picture below is what normal Kotatsu looks like in a Japanese house hold. In the winter, we sit around Kotatsu watch tv and eat oranges. I remember, we didn't have a heat in our house but I wasn't freezing to death because of Kotatsu, and saved us a lot of heating money... I wish Kotastu will be sold in the states...
Taking this concept of Kotasu, Japanese-pet product company Doggy Man created mini Kotasu for Pets!! It is such a brilliant idea because cats are almost always inside of Kotatsu in Japan! My family have a cat name Matsu, she always likes to sleep in there! Again I am not crazy about the design but love the concept!! I want this for Goma sooooo bad!!! I know for SURE that he will LOVE this!! Grr, again this product sold only in Japan...
They seems like made some updates from previous pet kotasu...such as making the blanket thiker etc...
The price of this kotatsu is about $ 120 USD.

We notice that the kitty coming out of the kotatsu (in the "Dehairi ga smooth picture) is an Abyssinian! But it's only suitable for ultra-small dogs so Tommy wouldn't fit. Too bad!!!

That's so cool! I also wish they have it here, so we have less heating bills. Cassie, could probably use it as well. She's out in the sunroom all the time.

this is brilliant! i love the idea of it because then the entire family is sitting close to one another instead of off in separate rooms on computers. COOL! Crawford wants one!
