Cosplaying Cat is the Ideal Dinner Companion

Cosplaying Cat is the Ideal Dinner Companion

Instagram is for two things (and don’t say unicorns and frappuccinos): cats and food. Fuzzy pets and photographic meals are where our attention lies, and if you’re lucky, the stars will align and the two will be combined in your feed to grace you with some of the greatest photographs on the internet.

Like most of us who use Instagram, @rinne172 photographs pictures of her meals. Beautifully laid out dishes, nicely prepared food, each photo with one added element—her 3-year-old cat, Maro. Maro is a cat like no other, he has the patience of a feline angel—sitting stoically in front of gorgeously prepared meals with the patient obedience of a stone statue.

Taken at home in Japan, the photo sessions take anywhere from 5 minutes to 1 hour for more detailed meals. @rinne172 told me that since starting an Instagram account in 2015 Maro has always been a composed and trusted dinner companion.

Hot off the grill steak, sauteed shrimp, even freshly cut sashimi doesn’t phase this cool kitty. More than that, he even endures elaborate costuming such as hats, wigs, and glasses. This cat is a saint. All the while, he sits. Patiently on his mark—never breaking—whether he’s wearing a chef’s hat or dressed up like a samurai.

While your attention will undoubtedly be drawn to the cat, @rinne172’s cooking skills shouldn’t be overlooked. Handmade mochi, sushi, and extravagant holiday meals all provide a beautiful tableau for Maro’s portraits. But just how does he maintain his composure around such sumptuous feasts? @rinne172 says, “Maro only likes canned food.” Well, every performer has their demands.

Check out more of Maro’s meowthwatering photos in the gallery below and on @rinne172’s instagram.
