The National Environment Agency (NEA) has warned about more impending heavy storms this November. If you found yourself caught in the rain over the past few days, it might be time to stock up on your wet weather essentials. Cat lovers can consider this umbrella by Chinese designer He Yue, which will lift your spirits every time you look at the trail of adorable cat paw prints it leaves behind.

Little do passers-by know that it has a tiny yet crucial detail: a cat paw on the rubber tip of the umbrella. He Yue was inspired by how people continue using their umbrellas like walking sticks after the rain has stopped.

When this umbrella gets wet and then comes into contact with a dry surface, the cute little paw prints will appear. Think of it as a rubber stamp, only instead of making a permanent mark on paper, you’re leaving a temporary mark on the sidewalk.

According to He Yue’s Behance page, the trail of paw prints “describes the warm story of ‘companionship’ and ‘people’.” Besides making your day better by adding a touch of whimsy, the paw prints will make you feel as though you are walking alongside a loyal pet.

The markings on the ground will probably also cause curious passers-by to take a second look, as they wonder who or what is leaving the prints behind.
