The weekend just got even better.

Your Neko Atsume collection is about to get a little bigger. 

The addictive cat-collecting app launched a new update that adds two new cats to the game, as well as new items and a remodel. Both new cats are of the regular variety, and they don't require any special items to catch. 

We nabbed Macchiato almost instantly by setting out the sashimi and the dino deluxe scratcher. She's a seal lynx with a sourpuss nature, though you wouldn't know it with that cute little smile on her face.

The second new cat is Melange, a blue lynx with a calm nature, who looks so much like Macchiato that fans have been speculating they could be fraternal twins. Both seems to be really fond of the giant cushion.

The new items include an egg bed, which comes in white, black, and pink and costs 550 silver fish. There's also a really cute mushroom house (regular and shiitake) for 25 gold fish. You can see the regular mushroom house below.

The last part of the update is the Cafe Style remodel, available for 280 gold fish. Here's a look, courtesy of Reddit user kittiv.

This Japanese game about collecting cats is the antidote to Internet stress
At some point during the winter, feeling smothered by grey weather, the sudden loss of a pretty good job, and the noxious climate on Twitter, I deleted the Twitter app from my phone and started collecting virtual cats. Neko Atsume, a.k.a. Kitty Collector, is a game you play by putting out food and toys for adorable kitties, and then ... actually, there's no "and then." That's the whole game. It's clever and intensely therapeutic.
