Look at their patterns, very similar to ones of cats
I bought a pack of clams. They look nice. I checked several packs and chose the one containing clams with cute patterns.
*Note: Clams are very common food in Japan and we put them in miso soup, cook with pasta or steam them in Japanese sake.
So lovely! They are so cuuuute!
Yes, you may need further explanation why I feel strong affection for clams by just seeing them in a pack. So I will tell you one by one (like a clam mentor?).

If you think it's so lovely and its pattern looks like the one of cat when you look at the above image, you are right. You are absolutely right. You don't have to read the rest of article and just enjoy photos of my article.

Question: Find a clam whose pattern looks like the one of cat the most. (Answer within 10 minute and give you 10 points)
The correct answer is this clam.
Don't you think it looks like a cat face?
It's a part of cat face.
For example, look at the face of this cat.
She is the mother of Natsume-san (my first cat). Natsume-san's black body curls up in her tummy in this photo.
Please compare 2 images, clam and cat each other. You may notice that a white part in the center of the cat face is also in the clam. We call this pattern Hachiware since it looks like the kanji character, eight which is called 'hachi' in Japan.

I am sorry for that.

They were delicious.
