We're all longing for a furry friend to keep us company as we stay indoors and work from home. Unfortunately, whether it's due to allergies, picky landlords, or just the inability to keep even a pot-plant alive, having a pet isn't the best option for everyone. In Japan, pet owners go all out, buying wonderful accessories and even setting up celeb-style Instagram accounts for their pets.

So get ready to become a vicarious pet owner as you scroll through photos of these adorable Japanese pets. Maybe it's the backdrops of cherry blossoms, or the way these four-legged friends look at you, but these Japanese pets are off-the-charts adorable.

Naco is a Persian cat with a perpetual scowl – in other words, he's a classic grumpy cat. You can’t help but smile at Naco’s stubbornly cranky old man face as he hides behind plants and contemplates his own birthday cake.
