As many cat lovers know, drinkware can be a source of frustration between our feline friends and their human companions--particularly when cats seem dead-set on pushing cups to and beyond the edge of a table! However, it feels like these clever and transforming kitty cups crafted by Marumo Takagi just might be worth the risk.

While they appear to be a pair of stylish cat mugs on their own, a transforming floral pattern painted on each cat's black coat is triggered by filling the mug cups up with a hot beverage.

A video details the mesmerizing process of the cats revealing their true colors when the mugs are filled with hot beverages roughly around 45 degrees Celsius that activates a special paint coating.

The colorful cat mugs are available in a trio of styles and patterns, featuring cats sitting, searching for something, and playing with a ball of yarn.
