One creepy cat phone

Who would want one of these?

Many of us at Crave aren't animal people, yet we try to keep open minds. But while we tolerate penguins, pigs and even the occasional duck, we draw the line at cats. Yes, cats.

Other Cravers might ascribe our emotional response to sanriophobia, but our feline fixation goes well beyond the evil and mouthless Kitty. So we recoiled at the sight of Willcom's "Nico" phone. (As Akihabara News points out, it probably should have been named "Neko," the Japanese word fo cat.) No matter what it's called, this handset gives us the creeps.
