I’m working on another post, but with that comes procrastination, and with that, comes Japanese cat videos. I can’t take credit for this one, though. Viet found this one, then commented about it on Erin’s photo blog, and then Erin showed it to me. This is 100% pure fat Japanese cat gold, though. There are a ton of videos, which I’m about to relay here (some of these don’t allow me to embed, so you’ll have to click through to see them).

Now, even though this cat is sitting on its butt and looks like a grumpy, fat, drunk, old Japanese dude, it’s actually only 5.4kg (just under 12 pounds), which isn’t that heavy. This cat consists of a lot of fur, aparently, as you’ll see in the next video. It’s the shampoo diet!

[yframe url=’’]

Dang, this cat looks really sad. What amazes me about this cat is that it puts up with everything. And when I say everything, I really mean everything.

[yframe url=’’]

The can’ts name is shiro-buu (白ブー), where 白 means white, and ブー is probably referring to its weight (that’s kind of a guess, let me know if I’m wrong!). Let’s see what else Shiro-buu tolerates.

[yframe url=’’]

Not only is Shiro-buu wearing bunny ears, but that’s a little pink wig underneith. Makes me want to get a cat and dress it up, though I imagine most cats aren’t as patient. I guess this cat does have the good life sometimes…

Here we see Shiro-buu underneath the kotatsu (a low table with a futon, and a heat source underneath). That’s a smart (and very warm cat). When he’s not lazing about, he’s sitting about, getting fed by humans.

[yframe url=’’]

Or hanging out inside of boxes… I don’t imagine he could get out of that thing on his own…

And, luckily it does get some exercise, sometimes, though it is attached to a leash.

So, there you have it. The product of procrastination. You’ll never see a better cat post here, at least not anytime soon. Back to work for me! If you fancy this post, please give it a tweet or stumble! This cat is oh so stumbly. Here’s the rest of the videos. High quality regularly updated cat goodness.

    well, if one calls lounging about all day dressed in pretty attire (except for the pink hair in the 4th video – what is up with that?) and being fed treats non-stop “putting up with everything”…then i'm gonna start putting up with things more often. :-)

  • Viet

    I love the look the cat gives in the first video at 0:47s.

  • spacejay4000

    that poor cat lol. it is amazing what cats will tolerate. though i have to say that the videos are creepy cuz the guy's not talking. i would expect at least a chuckle or saying its name or something lol.

  • Zaywex

    What amazes me is the ability to sit around for thirty minutes watching cat videos. I mean, how do the cat's do it?!

  • Eevee

    ahaha. Wow. That's just amazing.

    The holiday one? Yeah. The cat's like, “FOOD NAO -grabs-”
    xD Wow. That's one fluffy cat. I especially love the furrowed brow, scowling eyes, and mustache-esque face.
