A Japanese Instagram user enjoys preparing gourmet meals and taking pictures of them. That by itself might not be that interesting until you also see that this Japanese chef also likes to take pictures of her exquisitely prepared meals with her 3-year old cat, Maro.

Even though each meal takes up to 5 hours to prepare, Maro has no trouble patiently posing in front of the food while dressed up in various costumes. Perhaps Maro eventually gets rewarded by eating all this wonderful food, or maybe Maro just enjoys dressing up and playing make believe.

Whatever the case, Instagram and Internet cat lovers can now enjoy these many pictures of Maro the cat in front of gourmet Japanese meals.
