Fortunes are nice and all, but getting little felines in your cookies are way better.

IT Media reports that these cat cookies are available via Japanese site Felissimo. Each one comes with a small cat that is as big as a fifty yen coin—which is about the size of an American nickel.

Japanese websites like Livedoor News are comparing these to fortune cookies.

Each cat is made one-by-one and painted by hand. They’re meant for display, so, no, you cannot eat these cats, but then again, you probably don’t eat your fortunes.

I am Chinese (Singaporean to be exact) and it always fascinates me that Americans think that Asians gave fortune cookies everywhere. I’ve been to Japan and china and none of these countries (including Singapore) have a ‘fortune cookie’ culture. In fact, the 1st time i am in a chinese restaurant in US, they gave me a fortune cookie and i was like....’What is this?’

Can someone tell me how did the Fortune cookie thing came to be?
