Shishi-Maru is a Scottish fold, a favorite breed of cat lovers because of their large eyes and folded-over ears. At just two years old, the feline has garnered a hugefan base. The account @emonemon on Instagram has picked up over 8,300 followers in the past few days as word of the cat spread. Buzzfeed even went so far as to declare, "This Cat Wins the Internet."
