Let’s face it: Cats have always had global domination on their minds. It started in Egyptian times, when cats said (and we paraphrase), “Hey, you got mouse problems? Eating up your grain, are they? Snakes don’t make cuddly house pets, do they? So how’s about this: We cats will hunt the mice, so long as you promise to worship us. Capisce?”
And it didn’t really matter what the humans said, because the cats had already deployed their kitty mind trick: dilated pupils, imploring faces, and silent meow of devastation. Game over.
Not that we’re complaining.
With the advent of the Internet, cats continue their domination in new and efficient ways. Following in the footsteps of Maru, Shishi-Maru is a Scottish Fold with an Instagram following that would please any ancient Egyptian cat god. You can follow him here.
Not much is known about Shishi, which is fine, because all you really need to know is that Shishi is your new god.
So hand over your empty boxes and paper bags, your cans of tuna, and your will to resist squealing, because all your base are belong to Shishi-Maru.
This leaves us with a problem. We can’t decide which is the cutest Shishi photo. We need your help to please our god of cuteness: Scroll through the photos below and vote for your favorite by clicking the “Vote” button in the upper right hand corner of each photo.
