BIKECAT, also known as Kuma(クマ), is a cat that is frequently posted on image boards such as 2ch and iichan.

Introduction

On cat image boards, cat owners often take pictures of their pets and upload them for the enjoyment of others. BIKECAT (always written with capital letters) is a cat that has become famous on image boards such as Futaba Channel and iichan. BIKECAT's name reflects the nature of many of his pictures, in which he is sitting in the basket of a bike. BIKECAT is considered to be extremely cute and has an endearingly grumpy personality, which some say makes him even cuter. His grumpiness often makes him seem like a tough cat, which many interpret as the quality of a leader or even god. BIKECAT's cuteness and grumpiness have made him a popular internet meme.

BIKECAT is worshipped as a god by many of his fans.

BIKECAT's characteristics

BIKECAT is a white cat with grey stripes and notably large yellow eyes. A very special characteristic that BIKECAT has is his collar. He wears what appear to be dog collars (one he wears often even says "dog" on the side, making him look like more of a tough cat).

BIKECAT's increased popularity

Origins of his nickname

Already famous on futaba channel, BIKECAT's pictures began to be posted on both 2ch and iichan on the "Random" forums (also known as "/b/"), also on the cat board on WTFUX.org. The most appealing photos were the ones in which BIKECAT was shown in a grumpy or mad mood, which users found cute. After some time, BIKECAT's images were posted so many times that users began to develop a personal curiosity. On iichan's "random" board and on WTFUX's cat board, a few users proposed a names for the cat, including "BIKECAT" and "BASKETCAT," because many of the pictures feature him seated in a bicycle basket. This amazed users because cats do not typically stay in one place. "BIKECAT" was selected as his name and he was named like so from then on, to the point that his name became notorious among users on iichan.

What users think of him

As mentioned before, BIKECAT was found cuter when in a grumpy or mad mood. In most of his pictures taken, BIKECAT appears as a "tough" cat, the kind that other cats wont mess with rather than appearing like a cute cat like most owners like to take pictures of their pets. Because of his grumpy mood, BIKECAT is often refered as "the king of cats", as a "superior cat". For non cat-lovers, he is popular because of his appeance, while for those who love cats, (most being users of the cat boards of both Futaba Channel and iichan) his grumpiness is what attracts them.

His pictures

Most of the pictures posted of BIKECAT seem to be taken on the streets of what appears to be Nagoya, Japan. The owner takes BIKECAT arround the city to urban places like streets, stores and parks (BIKECAT seems to enjoy his bicycle trips). Another part of BIKECAT's pictures are taken off the bicycle as he walks through the places were he was taken to outside while other pictures of him features him at home.
