Japanese Cat’s Ice-Cold Heart Finds True Love With Heater

“Japan is so cold right now! All he wants is to warm up more,” Tan told Bored Panda.

Busao’s age (9 years) might also explain why he prefers the simpler things in life

In most of his adorable photos, which recently went viral, Busao appears too engrossed in meditation while keeping himself warm that it would be a shame to disturb him.


Busao has earned quite a following on social media since Tan started posting his cute pictures and videos online.


While Busao the cat’s images on Instagram, FaceBook, and YouTube have prompted many to comment on his natural cuteness, not many know he used to be a stray cat.


According to Tan, Busao was an alleycat which he came across at the streets of Ibaraki prefecture, located in the Kantō region.


“Busao was originally a stray cat,” he was quoted as saying. “I think that he is about 9 years old.”
