So today we’re going to talk about our favorite chunky and Kawaii cat Pusheen. I’m sure you’ve seen her everywhere online but do not know much about her. Pusheen has fans all over the world and on social media.
Another great fact is that Fans can engage with Pusheen on a wide range of social media platforms. But why is she such a popular cat? Well, today I will give you a proper introduction to our furry little friend.
1. Who is Pusheen?
Pusheen is the cartoon cat who is the main character of comic strips and stickers on Line, Facebook, Instagram, and many other social media platforms. Pusheen was made in 2010 by Claire Belton & Andrew Duff for a comic book strip on their website, Everyday Cute.
These days, Pusheen is a popular character used on social media platforms and blogs. Pusheen is a female fictional cat who loves going on adventures, snacking, and blogging. Some of her favorite snacks are ice cream, pizza, and cheeseburgers inspired by the snacks that we all love.
Fun fact, the original comic strip included characters inspired by their creators' pets. Pusheen, our cute chubby grey tabby cat is based on Benton’s cat, and Carmen the dog is inspired by her pet dog.
Sometimes, Pusheen would be dressed in different outfits. Which makes her appearance way more cute and appealing to those who love j-fashion and everything Kawaii. Some of the outfit themes would be Purrmaid, Pusheenicorn and many other themes inspired by her name.
If she was a regular cat behaving like any old simple cat, no matter how cute she is then it’s highly unlikely that her adventures would be fun and relatable. These themes are fun and exciting to look forward to, especially if they collaborate with other cute characters such as Hello Kitty.
