Animal-Shaped Donuts Let You Eat Adorable Kittens Without Mercy


If you thought the unbearably cute donut trend stopped at Cat Donuts, oh, how you were so very wrong.

“Doubutsu doonatsu,” or animal donuts, are now available  at two shops in Japan — Animal Doughnut of Ikumimama and Floresta. The latter began the trend of emblazoning donuts with animals when a customer suggested the idea a few years ago.


From there, one of the women behind Floresta’s animal donuts, Ikumi Nakao, created her own spin-off shop in Kawasaki, aka Animal Doughnut of Ikumimam. The dainty confections come in an assortment of different creatures — from plump piglets to pandas to whiskered catlings.

For those not in Japan, you can have Ikumimama ship you your daily dose of kawaii for $9 (US).
