Massive 3D catzilla gets crowds purring in busy Shinjuku district of Tokyo

We'd hate to see the litter tray

A giant cat has been spotted peering down at onlookers in one of the busiest parts of Tokyo and doing what felines do best – taking catnaps.

The giant feline – a colossal lifelike 3D animation – has been drawing crowds above the entrance to a railway station in the busy Shinjuku district as part of the Cross Shinjuku Vision project.

According to CNN [Cat's News Network? – ed.], the moggy can be seen between 7am and 1pm local time on a 1,664 square foot 4K, curved LED screen.

Nicknamed the "Shinjuku Cat" and with its own YouTube Channel and Twitter feed, it's left cat-lovers around the world gooey with adoration. It's due to make its formal appearance on 12 July.

The whereabouts of a similar-sized litter tray have yet to be disclosed. ®
