WATCH: Freakishly buff cat flexes its ripped muscles

A cat in Japan is giving some bodybuilders a run for their money.

Meet Mamedaifuku (Omame for short), the newest celebrity cat on the internet known for its ripped thigh muscles and its capability to stand on its own hind legs at will.

Omame broke the internet when a video of the cat ransacking its owner’s DVD player appeared on Twitter last Nov. 7. Omame’s body contorted in an attempt to reach and scratch something from the TV stand, revealing its muscles.

“What are you doing,” Omame’s owner, one @cute_nekomama said, as per Sora News 24 yesterday, Nov. 18.

The cat’s stardom even reached the television screens. Its owner posted a snippet of the sculpted feline’s feature on TV last Wednesday, Nov. 13.

Of course, Omame has also been a subject of the internet’s meme circulation. Here are some of the memes posted by @cute_nekosama from today and yesterday:

The cat’s owner always compares his cat to aliens, super villains or cartoon characters, as per report. Omame was originally abandoned shortly after birth. Luckily, the rescued cat grew up to be a friendly pet who loves humans. Cha Lino/JB
