Maro is a 3-year-old cat living in Japan with his mom. He's a pretty typical cat and loves just hanging out and being with his mom β€” while dressing up in adorable costumes and posing in front of food.

Maro has been living with his mom since he was 7 months old, and not long after he joined her family, she discovered that he had quite the knack for sitting and getting his picture taken.

"He is great at posing, because he's so quiet and easygoing," Rie Matsui, Maro's mom, told The Dodo.
