There is such an abundance of cat-themed home items in Japan, that if you wanted to fill your entire house or apartment with them, you really won’t have any trouble. From cat pillow covers for the bedroom, to hand towels that imitate a particularly stretchy cat for the bathroom, Japan truly is the country that rewards cat lovers with cute things.

The latest cat-inspired collection released in Japan is called “Cat’s Nap Time” and is sold by a Japanese chain store appropriately called Afternoon Tea.
