A Font Made Entirely of Cats

A Font Made Entirely of Cats

Two marbled kittens, Raizo and Mondo, recently became immortalized in the form of a font. Yes, a font — as in Times New Roman, Geneva, Comic Sans, and now: Cat! Meet Neko Font, a Japanese web app that allows you to transform text into contortionist kitty-cats.

Each letter is comprised of one or more actual cat photos — and on occasion an extra image, such as the lowercase “i” which contains a bowl of ramen noodles for the dot (personally, I would have chosen a red ball of yarn). I cannot imagine how long it took for the designers to actually get their kittens — individually and together — to form all 26 letters in the English alphabet, plus many of the non-alphanumeric characters. Apparently, a capital “B” was one of the hardest letters to form.

Unfortunately, this is not a downloadable font that you can add to personal computer, but rather a web app with a dialogue box. You type in your desired text and they convert your words into cat form. For all of a feline’s flexibility, the final output can, at times, be hard to read, so you would not want to submit a term paper written entirely in cat font, even if the topic is felines. Like a cat, this font is entirely playful, but only when it is in the mood!

A move that is sure to make techie cat owners purr, Neko Font has hinted that they are working on a future function that will allow pet owners to scramble their own pussycats into letters, thus creating their own custom feline font.
