Round rice cake and Maru
Maru as an idol cat on the Internet has a lot of fans across the world. According to Maru’s owner, Maru seemed to love so much a box in which a Kagami-mochi (round rice cake) had been put. He put the whole body inside the box. The owner put a plastic mochi and orange cover on his head. He seemed to be devoted to become a Kagami-mochi cat, caring nothing about the cover.
