Cat Refuses Owner’s Attempts At Cuddling, And It Has Gone Viral On The Internet

When it comes to getting attention, cats are for sure not beggars, but choosers. Humans find these little mammalian fluffballs hard to resist, and there’s no surprise there. Their cute-but-stoic face, their beautiful fur and elegant poses, all of them make it seem that cats just beg to be touched. But don’t make this mistake, folks. Cats, being the constant center of attention, rarely lack affection, and it’s up to them to decide when they want it.

Muji, this four-year-old cat from South Korea, perfectly illustrates the point. Though he is as cute and lovely as any other cat, Muji takes his alone time seriously, and shows it very expressly. Recently, one moment where Muji refused his owner’s cuddles went viral on the internet, and many, especially cat owners, found it funny and relatable. So let’s see what the fuss was all about.

Here’s Muji, the four-year-old tsundere cat from South Korea

For all of you baka gaijins out there, “tsundere” means “a stock love interest who is usually stern, cold, and sometimes hostile to the person they like and others. They will occasionally let slip their warm and loving feelings hidden inside. They hide their feelings due to being shy, nervous, insecure, or simply unable to help acting badly in front of their crush.

The Japanese term ‘tsundere refers to an outwardly violent character who ‘runs hot and cold,’ alternating between two distinct moods: ‘tsuntsun’ meaning ‘aloof or irritable’, and ‘deredere’ meaning ‘lovey-dovey.'”

Just recently, a moment of Muji and its owner went viral on the internet

There he was, just chilling on the counter, when the owner approached to cuddle

Muji was very reluctant

“Ok, this is getting old”

“Aaand I’m out”

Note the look of defeat from the owner.

“We’re done here, please let me go”

But maybe Muji just didn’t feel like it that time? Let’s try that again

“I thought I told you, bro”

“Do you wanna get slapped?”

Muji’s has a ginger sibling cat named Makji

And as you might guess, Makji also gets on Muji’s nerves

“I sense his presence”

“Stop interrupting my zen”

Just a random idea, but these two cats would for sure be a good duo in some sort of anime. Imagine a silly ginger ‘deredere’ cat with an arrogant, white ‘tsuntsun’ cat: the adventures they would have, the interactions, the dialogue… It would be epic. Anyway. One could only wish for it. Let’s hope this hilarious moment between them might spark an idea to someone who’s able to execute it.

Despite these impressions, Muji wants warmth and affection just like any other cat

But unlike other cats, Muji likes solicited snuggles, and prefers to ask for them

Just don’t interrupt Muji when he’s meditating

My cats would murder me if I trapped their head and got in their face like that. Learn what your cat is and isn't comfortable with. They all have their own personalities and preferences.

while cats share traits with many other cats, they have the potential to be extremely unique, displaying behavior that's unlike almost any other cat; and yes, you do need to learn what yours likes, dislikes, and will tolerate

He's grumpy because he is over bred and is in constant pain. It's not cute to buy Scottish folds, it's barbaric

I am so sick of people promoting cat and dog breeds with deformed charitaristics, especially when they are 'trendy' like pugs and Scottish folds. Causing something to be in pain because you like the way they look is just selfish cruelty. For anyone that doesn't know, cats with folded ears look like this because they have a genetic weakness of the cartilage. Their ears basically collapse under their own weight. This weakness affects all cartilage in their body, not just ears, leading to joint problems and chronic pain.

So how do you know this isn't a rescue from a shitty breeder, or any other situation besides they bought him from a breeder and promote the breed.
