We live in weird times, where animals can become superstars. In this case, it’s cats. For some reason, the internet has always seemed to love them. Lots of felines have found fame online but here are five of the most famous furballs that could give Kim Kardashian a run for her money!
Oh, Maru and his boxes. He loves boxes of all sizes! Even the smallest ones. Maru became a celebrity because of his “in-boxing” videos. He enjoys squeezing himself in all kinds of boxes, even if he has a hard time getting in. But he never gives up (so inspiring!). Maru is on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Buzzfeed has several articles about him and appears to think he is one of the cutest cats ever. We’d have to agree with them…
With wide eyes that give her the appearance of being permanently surprised, Nala wins the award for being one of the most adorable cats on the planet.

A cat grumpier than the grandma next door! Grumpy Cat’s real name is actually Tardar Sauce – which is also pretty cute. She was an incredibly popular celebrity cat, known for her permanently grouchy facial expression. This was caused by an underbite and feline dwarfism.
