Latest craze in Asia: use a live bunny (a cat will also do) as a smartphone case

It's one of those Asian things: like smart flip phones (yes, flip phones with Android on board exist in Japan, for instance) and crazy cases (how would you like a smartphone case with Ramen noodles on it?), but this latest one is not just weird - it includes live animals...

Is there a carving in their bodies to fit the phone?

Nope, the phone just lies on their belly, it's not glued to it either

This is true. I live in East Malaysia (North Borneo) where some people will put on these cases. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

Sounds like one of those things to see how many fools will emulate this supposed 'trend'.

I think some ppl in this thread are taking the pictures too seriously. Its just a phone resting on a fluffy bunny. As if they are really using them as phone cases. If I put my phone on a table, does that make the table a phobe case? The new trend should be phones resting on the bellies of hot girls >.

Why they haven't used an alligator? At least they will have some protection from thief's?

I am very disappointed PA... in both the article and the comments. Bunnies? Kitties? And not one mention that the best animal case is obviously an Otter Box?!?!
