19 Kittens in Kimonos Because Why the F Not?

Japan has given us countless amazing trends, such as sushi, ramen, Hello Kitty, Nintendo and many others. Cats dressing up in Kimonos is the latest, and probably most adorable trend that is blowing up in Japan. And like all things trendy, it is spreading quickly throughout the world. Even in the United States, stores selling cat kimonos are popping up on Amazon and AliExpress.
