Kawaii! These little kitties aren’t just unbelievably cute, they’re also edible. They’re made by a Japanese mom named Caroline for Neko no Hi or Cat Day, which takes place each year on February 22nd.

Cat-shaped treats seem like a wonderful way to celebrate how much you like your feline friends. These treats are cat-shaped nerikiri, which is “a traditional Japanese sweet made by mixing shiro-an (sweetened white bean paste) with gyuhi (made of glutinous rice, similar to mochi but softer).” Caroline sculpts her nerikiri cats and kittens into various sizes and poses and then uses edible dyes to add distinguishing markings and fine details. She even makes little accessories for them, like tea sets and pillows for extra-comfy lounging.

Based on the effort that goes into making these sweets, it seems likely that Caroline’s family probably has at least one real life cat of their own and we’re guessing it leads a wonderfully spoiled life.

Galadriel is ready for battle.
… Because seriously? Going through the Hobbit again, I only just realized that since she is in the council, that means she was there when they drove the Necromancer out of Dol Guldur. 
Of course she would need some slightly more practical and weapon-repellant clothing than her usual crazy mile-long dresses (but no less fabulous). Also, Cate Blanchett should definitely get to do sword-fighting, and wear an armor.
