Sushi Cats combine cute felines, delicious sushi

A Japanese company has created a series of photos of kitties resting atop sushi rice. Why? Because the fate of modern civilization rests on cute cats.

Ever thought about putting a cat on top of a giant piece of sushi and taking a picture? No? Yeah, us neither. Japanese company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts, however, has a very different mindset, and the result is what you see here.

Besides selling pictures (and there are plenty) of the sushi-fied cats, there's also a mobile app available for iOS and Android smartphones. Unfortunately, these prints are only available in Japan, though the app is free to download.

Having tried out the app, we're still no closer to understanding what the heck is going on. It's probably a form of art or something that only the Japanese (or people really into the whole cat and sushi thing) can appreciate.
