She’s a Cat and He’s a Dog. Japan is Like a Zoo with Character Types of Animals!

In Japan, we tend to use metaphors like “you’re like a dog/cat” to describe people. This comes from the image that dogs are friendly and show their love towards their owner very openly. On the other hand, cats take a bit more time to get close, and they show cool attitudes toward you even though they like you, also called as “Tsun-dere” in Japan.

These “animal types” have grown in variety after this picture buzzed on Twitter.
