Giant feline serves purrfect potato in Japan

You've cat to be kidding me!

On a cold Friday in Kurayoshi City, you could see a giant cat selling sweet potatoes from a yellow truck.

This is Mikeneko Yamada, known as the cat vendor, who has spent six years finding the right sweet potato for his purrfect Yaki-imo (Japanese for roasted sweet potato).

"In Yonago city in Tottori, now, I found one place which is producing very tasty one," said Yamada dressed in his fury cat mascot custom.

The cat vendor mastered the art of Ishiyaki, roasting sweet potatoes in hot stones, and has been selling it out of the yaki-imo truck.

Many locals have become regulars and come back time and again for the almost cake-like roasted potatoes.
