I posted this by accident before I managed to get my text completed. Ooops. So I may as well complete it now, and sorry to those who looked at the incomplete post.
Youtube Star Maru
Maru is a popular kitty in Japan and elsewhere who loves boxes in particular. I don't really have a lot to say about this, but that Maru is more famous than me and cuter too.
Neko Samurai (Cat Samurai)
This was a funny one that has been around for like 3 or 4 years now, but it recently became popular again on the net due to cat aficionados. There is a movie and a couple of seasons of this show called Neko Samurai. In some ways it reminds me of Lone Wolf and Cub about a samurai and a baby journeying together. Most of all, it is cute, and don't touch the samurai's cat!
Neko Atsume House
They made a movie based on the popular cat game Neko Atsume for smart phones. This is nuts and it even got like 3.5 stars out of 5 on IMDB. In the game, you just put out food and toys and various cats from around the neighbourhood come and visit you, sometimes leaving you gifts. Just a totally pointless, but also fun game about visiting cats and collecting snapshots of them. In the movie, a writer moves into a house to overcome his writers block and ends up running a cat day spa it seems. A movie that could only be made in Japan!
Jun's Kitchen - Sushi For Cats
This is a pretty impressive video by a chef who makes sushi for his cats. The cats are totally chill with watching and waiting for their awesome meal of fish. I like Jun's videos and I need to take my cat biking around in a basket too!
