If you take two things the Internet loves, cats and figures, and combine them, you might come up with something like these miniature cat models. Created by a Japanese customizer, these cat models were created in 1/35 scale, the perfect size to go in a miniature village, and are made entirely of metal.

What's endearing about them is the poses they're sculpted in, nuzzling against things, looking up at the viewer curiously. Usually, model-making is concerned with vehicles, military hardware, sci-fi spaceships and occasionally humans. Animals are rarely seen as a subject, much less adorable ones. The models are available on Aurora Model, but you'll have a rough time getting them unless you read Japanese.
