Because of the unique shape of "cat paw cup", many netizens rushed to buy it. Some netizens queued hours before Starbucks opened the door, and even some netizens set up tents to queue all night. More exaggeratively, because of the limited number of cups in each store, many people fight directly in Starbucks stores in order to snap up the cups.

Do consumers snatch cat paw cups just because they look good?

Except that the cup really sports a cute and unique design, another reason for the popularity of cat paw cups is that they want to resell it at a high price to make a good profit that is much more than they paid.

Now, there are many e-commerce webs selling cat paw cup. However, the price of Starbucks cat paw cup has gone up from the original 199CNY (about $30) to 1800CNY (about $269).
