“It's cute and amazing. Really looks as though it's alive,” said a commenter.
Netizens couldn’t help be amused with this new cat bag posted online by Twitter user @picopoco08. At first glance, anyone can be forgiven for mistaking the product as a real cat. Besides, it looks pretty realistic!

“The weather was nice today so I was able to shoot outside. The customer accepted the final product, so I’ll be preparing for its journey [to the customer].”
As mentioned earlier, numerous netizens thought the cat was real.
“I thought you’re carrying a real cat,” one commenter wrote. “It’s cute and amazing. Really looks as though it’s alive!”
