When neko ears appear in anime is a way of expressing cuteness and cat like actions which are usually mischievous and stuff, so to express that in anime they put cat ears on the characters.

Its also a popular fashion choice in japan, and in the western culture people who wear them wear them as a way of

expressing their cat like personalities. People who wear cat ears will often say "nya" and make their hands into fists.

Being a neko is not a furry fetish, instead it is more of an extension of someones personality.
"That girl wears cat ears every day, is she some kinda furry?"
"No, she is just a neko, shes very cute"
"they really do suit her"

1. the basic Japanese noun for "cat."

2. Japanese slang for the "bottom" in a homosexual relationship. The claim that it is derived from the word for "cat" is a folk etymology; the true origin of the word is unknown, but it might be related to the Japanese verbs "neru" (ๅฏใ‚‹: to lie down, to lie supine; to go to bed, to go to sleep)/"nekaseru" (ๅฏใ‹ใ›ใ‚‹: to put someone to bed, to lay somebody down) or the noun "nekko" (ๆ นใฃใ“: the base of a tree, the roots around the bottom of a tree). It is the counterpart of "tachi" (ใ‚ฟใƒ: the "top"), which might be related to Japanese "tachi" (ๅคชๅˆ€: a Japanese long sword) or "tachi" (็ซ‹ใก: standing (up), the state of being erect).
