The cat paw cup is made of transparent glass. The inner part of the cup is designed as a cat's paw. The outer part is printed with cherry blossom pattern. When the inner part is filled with colored liquid, the shape of the cat's paw emerges.
Because of the unique shape of "cat paw cup", many netizens rushed to buy it. Some netizens queued hours before Starbucks opened the door, and even some netizens set up tents to queue all night.
