This ‘Cat Street View’ interactive map lets you see the world through a cat’s eyes

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to wander around the city as a cat, this new interactive map will bring you one step closer.

The map, called “Cat Street View,” was made by the Hiroshima prefecture in Japan, and shows Onomichi City, a place famous for friendly street cats. The city even has such cat-centric wonders like “Cat Alley,” and a museum full of only cat figurines, TechCrunch reports.

Just like in other street view maps, you can interact with metatags (though the content is is Japanese). Go to the website to bound around in feline form, or see how it works below:
