cute brother and sister cats

The two brother and sister have grown up so much since we saw them last time :). They are still as close as two peas in a pod as before.

The little brother loves people and would do anything to get his mommy’s attention. His biggest pet peeve is when his mommy doesn’t have time for him when he needs her. The little Calico sister is fearless. She is playful and curious about everything, but if she hears or sees a nail clipper, she’d dash off so fast that it’s hard to find her.

When the two are put together, they fight but they always make up with love and affection afterwards. Napping is their forte and they share that moment together everyday.

Remember the Japanese cat who has won millions of people’s hearts on YouTube with his silly antics and obsession for boxes? Maru, a perk-eared Scottish Fold, has become an internet meme and even appeared on Ellen DeGeneres’ show and various other TV shows in the US and many other countries. We have spoken to Maru and his hooman and got the inside scoop on Maru’s life.

When Maru first entered his home, he was only four months old, but he weighed over 5 lbs (2.4kg) already. Maru has always been a pudgy cat (now 5.5kg or 12.1lbs). The name “Maru” means “round” in Japanese, but according to Maru’s hooman, Mugumogu did not name him because of his round shape. The name was decided before Maru arrived. It is a short name and easy for the cat to understand.

Maru’s obsession with boxes started when he was a little kitten. He played with boxes and used them as beds. Maru is mischievous and loves to command attention. He will act silly on purpose in order to get people to notice him. Maru loves to play with water. Whenever Mugumogu is washing up in the bathroom, Maru will join in and swat the water with his little paws.

Theses two lovely kittens come from Japan. Their owner has been taking pictures of them since they arrived in their new home. Japanese people have a penchant for cats especially the Scottish fold besides the Japanese Bobtail. [See Tama, the first feline corporate executive in the world]

This brother and sister pair were born on March 1, 2008, Scottish fold, but their ears are not folded. You can visit the owner’s website here (not translated Japanese version here).
