Cat Celebrities And Pets of The Anime World

Cat Celebrities And Pets of The Anime World

Sometimes cute little fur babies steal the lime light and become the stars of the show. Here are the most famous pet cat celebrities of the anime pet world!

Step aside puppers! The cat kind are crawling their way to the top of pet celebrities in anime and we’ve got the list to prove it!

Even though a survey conducted in October 2020 shows that dogs were the most popular pet among Japanese people, cats are closing in on anime popularity in 2022. Why wouldn’t they be?

We have seen cats around Japan in every corner for centuries. And now we will take a peek at the world of (not just pet) cats in anime.

Miyazaki’s Cats, especially Jiji.

Myazaki cats: Jiji

When talking about famous cats in anime, it is impossible not to mention the characters created by the famous director Hayao Miyazaki.

Of course there are way too many to mention, so we’re just going to say all Myazaki cats in general, but an an honorable mention goes to JIji. In Miyazaki’s Kiki’s Delivery Service anime, we meet Jiji, a helpful companion of Kiki who is training to be a witch.


Nekobasu aka Kittenbus

Nekobasu is a character from the movie My Neighbor Totoro, directed by Hayao Miyazaki. This cat, who has 12 legs and acts as a bus with a big smile on its face, is also featured in the 13-minute movie named Mei and Kittenbus. It is only shown at the Ghibli Museum.


Charming anime cat, Baron

The character of Baron (Baron Humbert von Gikkingen) in the movies Whisper of the Heart (1995) and Cat’s Return (2002) is also a character known by Miyazaki movie lovers.


Cute anime pet cat Chi

Chi is an adorable stray kitten who is taken in by a family. Since she is a troublemaker, we enjoy following every minute of her exciting ordinary life. If you are also interested in this kitten’s adventure, you can watch Chi’s Sweet Home on Amazon Prime.


Meowth Pokemon

After seeing this post some of you may want to return to their childhood and rewatch Pokemon. I can’t blame you. After all this time, I noticed that he is a rare Pokemon with a speaking ability while his kind can’t speak. He imitates humans by walking on his two paws and learning to speak to communicate with humans. With this effort, he won a place on my list.


 Fat anime cat Nyanko-Sensei

Nyanko Sensei from Natsume’s Book of Friends Anime underneath his cute cat form, there is a powerful selfish youkai hiding. But he can scare away most of the youkai.



There are many Bananyas on a small planet far away from earth. Don’t you know what they are? We are not sure either. Half cat, half banana, or cats living in bananas. If you are interested in these cute little cats, who are curious about the earth, don’t forget to check on Crunchyroll.

Sailor Moon’s Luna and Artemis

Sailor Moon’s Luna and Artemis

Another nostalgic moment… Do you remember the time you watched Sailor Moon? Well, I don’t. Maybe, it is time to rewatch Sailor Moon and remember Luna and Artemis, the mentors and companions of Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus.



Another lucky cat that is taken in by a family. Moe Sato named her cat Poyo because of her round shape. Even though most people get affected by its cuteness, Poyo can’t get along with his owner’s younger brother. You can watch this orange pillowed-shaped cat at Crunchyroll.



Doraemon is a robot cat who came from the future. I might not be wrong if I say one of the most loveable ones on my list. Sometimes I really need his pink door. How about you?

There are a lot of different kinds of cats in the anime, and these are not all of them, I know. I may even skip some creepy or scary cats, too. My list can even be called kawaii (meaning; cute in Japanese) cats of anime.
