This is Shironeko. You probably have seen him somewhere - the zen master cat. Shironeko is perhaps the most content and relaxed cat on earth. His name translates literally as "White Cat." Shironeko was born on March 8th 2002, so that makes him an 8-year-old boy. He may look pudgy in the photos, but he only weighs about 9.9 lbs (4.5kg).
Shironeko looks like a Turkish van cat to me. The most distinctive feature is his eyes. They look like they are always sleepy. Shironeko loves a relaxing day, napping in his basket or anywhere he finds comfortable. He is one adorable kitty :).
You can find more photos of Shironeko at his gallery or blog.
