Get your cat to make eyes at you

Straits Times Animal Antics

Cats can be animated creatures sometimes, evidenced by the trove of cat videos and memes online. But if you follow the latest Japanese trend - the neko montage - you can animate their faces anytime, anywhere.

The process involves hand-drawing anime eyes or facial expressions on thin strips of paper and placing them in front of your feline pets before taking a picture. The results are hilarious, with the unsuspecting animals' faces instantly transformed to look angry, bored, shocked or unimpressed, among other expressions.

Many Twitter users in Japan have joined in the fun, with even a dog being used in lieu of a cat. Check out the highlights.
