Despite the abundant cat photos circulating on the web, felines manage to capture our affections in a variety of ways. Some are adorable, some are eccentric, and others win us over with their exceptional appearances. One such example is Ikiru, a uniquely striking cat that has captured the hearts of many.
With his immense grey eyes, a damp black nose, and a protruding tongue that offers up some comical expressions, he’s quite the sight to see. Known affectionately as the “Blep King,” Ikiru has captured the hearts of social media users all around the world thanks to his Instagram fame.
Rich and Emma instantly fell in love with Ikiru when they came across his picture on the breeder’s website. Their fondness for the furry feline grew stronger after their initial encounter, prompting them to bring him home four weeks later.
Rich and Emma have expressed that their feline companion brings immense joy and excitement to their daily lives. The cat often displays humorous facial expressions and playful antics, which never fails to put a smile on their faces. They feel grateful that they are able to share these amusing moments with the world through various social media platforms.
According to the statement given to Bored Panda, people from all over the globe send messages admiring his amusing expressions, adorable looks, and charming demeanor. Additionally, he serves as an inspiration for fan art, and some brilliant illustrations beautifully depict his playful personality.
The popular Instagram account @neko.ikiru.san was made to showcase the daily adventures of Ikiru and his human parents. With a total of 185,000 followers, the account continues to gain popularity. The profile picture depicts Ikiru, and the owners provide information about his characteristics, including being a short-haired cat who enjoys fish and causing trouble while lying upside down.
It’s hard not to speculate whether Ikiru is just your average feline or if his unique facial expressions are due to a medical condition. This thought crossed the minds of Rich and Emma.
Our furry friend Ikiru is in great shape, as confirmed by our veterinarian who praised him for having remarkable teeth. Although he doesn’t always stick his tongue out, it seems to be a unique characteristic of his that results in some comical facial expressions.
