At a first glance, the felted cat creations by Nekolabo seem totally believable as real-life kitties. You could easily be duped into thinking they’re real, based on the quirky cat-like poses, realistic expressions, eyes and texture. The felted cats are more like kittens though, since Nekolabo notes that its creations are palm sized.
The adorable felted kitties are created by Tamako from Nekolabo, who forms the sculptures from sheep’s wool. The fuzzy texture of the wool and the use of glass eyes is part of what makes these cats so true to those in real life.
Nekolabo’s Instagram page is full of a ton of different felted cats, which vary just as much in personality as they do in their type and coloring. Since owning a real pet is difficult in large urban cities like Japan, a felted cat that’s as realistic as one of these would make a pretty charming companion.
