With numerous adorable cats and dogs and other pets these ones managed to conquer the Internet. Meet Neko-Sushi, also known as Sushi Cats.

The brainchild of Japanese company Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts, these “extremely unusual life-forms” are featured on its website, NekoZushi.com.

“In a series of weirdly hilarious photographs and videos, the company has created an elaborate imaginary history on the origin of Sushi Cats, featuring tales (ahem) of far-off adventures,” The Huffington Post reports.

According to the company, their cats are a magical and historical creatures that have been influencing humans quite for a long time. Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts has even launched a mobile game app for iPhone and Android-runnin devices featuring the Sushi Cats.

The unusual brand also has an online store that offers photo prints, postcards and more (only available in Japan).

The adorable pictures are available for sale online. Some cost more than $400 per portrait. There are other items, too– including postcards and calendars.

In case your level of cuteness is not high enough after observing sushi cats, meet an exotic short-hair cat, Snoopy, who became an overnight Instagram star. This cartoon-like cat is being shared everywhere by online animal lovers.

The adorable creature comes to our screens from a Chinese town Chengdu, Sichuan Province, and it’s simply impossible to get enough of his bug-eyed expressions, elegant ringed tail. Plus, imagine how soft that beautiful white coat is.

The whimsical cat has captured the attention of hundreds of thousands, with some describing it as adorable. Others say the cat looks somewhat creepy.

He already has more than 275,000 followers on Weibo – China’s version of Twitter – and a further 190,000 on Instagram.  The cute white cat with brown years and shot fur has a Facebook page too where pictures of him are shared doing cute things like sleeping, wearing a necklace, staring at the camera, etc.

The 2-year-old’s owner, who goes by Miss Ning, told the Chinese website, A Pet Guide, that his best feature is his “pie-face.”  She also told the web site  that “his droopy eyes make him appear innocent all the time.”

On its Instagram account, numerous users from around the world fawned over the pet, posting comments in English, Chinese, Filipino, and other languages.

“I want a snoopybabe,” wrote one. “I saw him on weibo before. He’s so qute,” said another.

The animal though given his burgeoning popularity he may soon find himself jetting off to the annual Internet Cat Video Festival, held this year in the US state of Minnesota.

The growth in Snoopy’s popularity will be seen as a threat to established feline internet stars Maru and Grumpy Cat Tardar Sauce.

Grumpy Cat is so popular she was chosen as ‘spokescat’ for a Friskies brand of cat food, it was announced this month. The frown-faced internet sensation is among the biggest stars of the peculiar trend of cat dominance on web videos and postings.

On the other hand, Maru’s crazy antics that were caught on video have already been viewed a million times. For a time, Maru was even hailed as the Internet’s most famous feline.

Indeed, there seems to be an odd trend of cats being used as subjects in various Internet postings and web videos nowadays.
