This feline celebrity chef dresses up to be the perfect date for his mom


Have you met Maro, the chef cat? He is the latest Instagram sensation that loves to cosplay…

…and date his mom, Rie Matsui.

According to Matsui, when she learned the Maro is easy to get along with, she decided to dress him up and take pictures of him. As a result, she get to do what she is passionate about — photography and Japanese culture & cuisine.

…or a plateful of sashimi.

Even a classy dinner of wine, salad, and bolognese…

…or just over coffee.
