Maru the cat is a YouTube celebrity, not just in Japan but all over the world. His career started in 2009 and now there are hundreds of videos on his channel with a combined view count over 300-million mark! Like many other regular cats, Maru loves to get inside boxes and one of his videos in 2015 he occupied the box of a kagami mochi set, a standard Japanese New Year (Oshogatsu) decoration. This gave birth to the New Year Kagami Mochi Cat House!
Instead of Maru's improvised hideout, the New Year Kagami Mochi Cat House is a fully fledged cat house, complete with a scratching area that your furry friend can use for keeping their claws sharp. There is a door on the back so he or she can get in and out, plus a paw-shaped window and peeping holes in the front so they can survey the environment or stretch their front legs. And, of course, there is an opening on the top so, like Maru, they can pop out and pose for all kinds of cute pictures and videos you can then upload online. Who knows, perhaps this can be your cat's chance to achieve YouTube stardom?
