Cat power

Origami neko bookmark

House cats often sprawl across the books their owners try to read, and this paper kitty is no exception. The neko (Japanese for cat) bites your page to mark your place. Her folded ears poke out when you close your book. Artist Jo Nakashima offers an 11-minute tutorial for the origami neko bookmark on his YouTube channel, alongside trickier creations such as penguins, scaled fish and a dragon that requires a 67-step folding process. Not that the kitten bookmark is easy. My first attempt took 43 minutes. On my second try, I shaved four minutes off my time. Good thing origami paper comes in packs of 100.
