Box-loving Japanese kitty Maru has been delighting cat fans for years with his love for cardboard containers of all kinds. Despite being a fluffy chubster, Maru seems to constantly underestimate his own size, leading to much hilarity as he attempts to squeeze his podgy body into boxes and containers that are just way too small for him.
But now, Maru’s taking his act to the next level. No longer content just to squeeze himself into boxes, he’s now embarking upon a transition process to become a box himself…
I love cat feets, don’t you? I love their adorable tiny toe beans and the little tufts of fur that poke out between each toe. Unfortunately for me, most cats aren’t a big fan of having their feet touched, so I rarely get to enjoy squeezing their little paws without also getting a dirty look or an indignant hiss in return.
However, this cool cat from Malaysia is totally chill with having his owner mess around with his paws – in fact, he’s a pro at balancing a wide variety of stuff on his back feet! Check out this gallery showcasing his unusual skills.
A while back we investigated what our sleeping styles say about our personality. One of the things we found out is that if you tend to sleep on your back, you’re more likely to be assertive and possibly even a little self-centred – two words one might use to describe Donguri (acorn) the pussycat, who’s been spotted cat-napping all over his owner’s house flat on his back!
Warning – this post contains extreme amounts of fluffyness!
We can’t stop watching this video of this kitty in the tub. There’s something so hypnotic about it.
Maybe it’s the blissful yet still somewhat ambivalent expression on the face of the cat. Maybe it’s the little hand towel balanced on its head like it’s an old Japanese dude in a hot spring. Maybe it’s the yellow bath water (what’s in it, custard?). We have no idea, but we’ve watched it approximately a thousand times in a row and can’t decide what’s going through kitty’s mind.
Have you heard of “gogatsu-byou“? Also known as “May Sickness” this is a Japanese term used to describe the particular malaise that descends upon many people in May, after the excitement of the new school year and hiring period in April.
But what better way to combat a case of the blues than with adorable kitten videos? If you’re feeling low, we reckon these capering Munchkin kittens will cure what ails you!
Bored cats can be a real pain in the bum. They whine, cry, walk all over your laptop, stick their butts in your face, and chew cables all in a bid to get your attention. Luckily, most cats can usually be placated with a simple cardboard box or rubber mousey. But what if you want to make play time with puss extra fun for both of you?
Well, you could do what this cat owner in Japan did and hand-build a game of whack-a-mole to delight and entertain your furry friend!
You know what everyone in Japan loves these days? Smartphone games. They keep you busy on the daily commute without requiring too much in-depth concentration, and Japanese smartphone game makers are seriously smart – they know how to keep players hooked. By combining the human need for constant “reward” feedback with our penchant for adorable cartoon kitties, they’ve come up with a winner of an app that everyone who likes fun can’t stop playing – Neko Atsume!
Now available for both Android and iOS and with a whole slew of new features, there’s never been a better time to get into this incredibly addictive yet simple cat-collecting time-waster…
I have a theory about cat people and dog people. It’s basically the old “nature vs nature” debate – are you born a cat or dog lover, or do you learn to become one? In my opinion, people who grow up with cats grow into cat people, and people who grow up with dogs become dog people. The baby in this adorable video looks like he’s definitely going to grow up to be a cat person – especially because he already has a furry pal who takes his curious manhandling with good humour.

Bakeneko are a type of Japanese feline folklore monster (yokai) that are said to be able to transform themselves from cats into women for devious purposes. We always thought it was just a load of hokum, but now stunning new pictures have emerged of a cat actually in the process of this transformation!
Okay, so someone’s just put a wig on their cat for a Twitter photo opportunity, but it’s still totally cute!
Do you like cute kitties? Do you like chopping things up? Of course you do! And now you can combine both of those passions (in a nice way!) at the same time with this adorable laser-cut stainless steel kitty knife. It’s just purrfect for all your culinary needs, especially if you’re of the opinion that even the most mundane of tasks can be rendered instantly more enjoyable with the inclusion of a little touch of cuteness.
Despite prices going up again, Tokyo Disneyland still is one of the happiest places on earth where you can meet all of your favorite characters, ride those amazing rides and of course, experience that legendary Disney hospitality. Last week, a Japanese twitter user even spotted one of the cast members (as park employees are called) extending the Disney treatment to a cat who had apparently lost its way.
Japanese netizens could barely hold in their glee at seeing this lost cat being treated so well. Click below to see what the cast member did to get netizens squealing with glee!
It’s Monday morning–the sky is overcast and a chilly rain is falling. You somehow manage to drag yourself out of bed, but now you just need that little motivational push to be able to tackle the new week head-on. So allow us to introduce you to this kitty, whose adorable antics playing with a car’s windshield wipers are sure to tickle your heart when everything else about Monday morning can’t!
Pets are an extremely important part of our lives as they provide us with companionship that can’t be compared. People will try to do pretty much everything with their pets: walk, talk, bathe, cook (not like that!), the list just goes on and on! If you’ve never seen a pet cooking then let us remind you of YouTube veteran Francis, who hosts the cooking show “Cooking with Dog”.
Perhaps this show has inspired this kitten to start up her own cooking venture. They might want to work out a few tiny details first, but for now let’s introduce Meow, the cooking kitten sensation!
Because the internet just can’t get enough of cats doing things – and neither can we – here is another cat video that has taken the Japanese internet by storm. In short, it’s a video of a pair of cats, one ‘doing things’ and the other ‘doing nothing’. Who knew it could be that adorable? This is indeed the Neko Power at its best!
On the Internet, there is little that people can agree on. From politics to the current state of anime, commenters can be relied on to pull out the metaphorical daggers over the sight of a dissenting opinion. That is with one magnificent exception: Cats! Cute and cuddly, it’s almost impossible to find something wrong with cats.
Okay, that’s not entirely true, but you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone kvetching about this indecisive kitty, except its slave…sorry, owner!
Even in the era of having the sum of human knowledge to date in your pocket, there’s something to be said about using a sweet novelty clock. If you’re in Japan, you have lots of options. There’s Zelda clocks, beautiful-women clocks, clocks that come for free in magazines. But that’s just scraping the surface, because apparently there’s such a thing as bread clocks too.
One Twitter user recently posted that he’d been having problems with his bread clock constantly telling the wrong time – until he found out the reason why. And no, it’s not because the clock is a piece of bread – the real reason is far more adorable than that.
