So crowded, meow!
We want to take a nap too!

Let’s go for a walk!
And what better than taking a stroll in the city after a good rest?
Learn to speak lolcat in Nyapanese
With cats slowly but surely taking over the world, no wonder humans from all around the globe try to speak their language.
So, how do you speak lolcat in Japanese? With a にゃ (Japanese version of meow), strategically placed at the end of a sentence.
わかりましたにゃ= I understood, meow!
暇だにゃ～= I’m boreeeed.
カメラは、苦手だにゃん= I’m shy with cameras…
You can also play puns by switching a word’s や vowel to にゃ instead. Like with good night, おやすみ, written “おにゃすみ”.
Here are a few expressions we could get our paws on.
そうにゃ！= That’s right!
そうだにゃ〜 = I think so too.
にゃんだと?！= What did you say?
にゃんてこた?！= What is that?!
にゃんか怖い… = That seems scary…
にゃんか寒い… = It’s kind of cold…
Take note that にゃ can be also be spelled にゃー (you can drag the sound mark ー as long as needed) and にゃん, which is more nasal.
To everyone out there studying Japanese: 頑張にゃ！！！(Hang in there and do your best!)
