This word appears to have entered the English language, though it isn't 
on Wiktionary, Wikipedia or the Oxford Dictionary site as an English word.

According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neko_%28computer_program%29, 
the computer program Neko was written no later than 1989 by Kenji Gotoh. 
I recall using a "Neko" application on Windows in the mid-1990s where a 
cat did things on the screen.

The disambiguation page for neko (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neko) 
has other uses.

Here is a page titled "How to Look Like a Cat (Neko)":

Here is a website for an upcoming "cat cafe" to be named "Neko":

There are also about 4K raw Googits for "neko fetish," many or all of 
which real hits may be for cosplay.
