    I’ve been waiting and waiting for the new “Maru is moving” video to be posted. I thought there was no way CO could be scooped by D-Listed.

    1:45 he does “The Maru” (i.e. displays his tocks like no other cat can). This cat is the most lovable bunch of pudge I have ever seen.

  4. Yeah, I was disappointed that the crab hat wasn’t part of the wallpaper.. I tried saving the picture to use as itself, but it’s not a large enough resolution. Such a funny picture..

  5. Redbone says:

    I like Maru, but I would feel weird using his image as a wallpaper. It’s like using pics of other people’s kids, you know? Maybe it’s just me. :p

  6. kibblenibble says:

    ❤ ❤ ❤ Maru! ❤ ❤ ❤

  7. Maru! We love you!

  8. I love Maru.

    okay that’s it. I have had enough. I’m calling this what it is.. Porn.
    Cat Porn.
    there can no longer be any denying it. This website is a prime purveyor of Porn..
    there, sorry but it had to be said.

    [You know, I was tempted to unapprove this comment, but then I was all 😆 – Ed.]

  10. Thank you! Wallpaper is up…now I can enjoy Maru’s cuteness all the time:)

  11. DaytimeDeb says:

    No Redbone, you are not alone. Not my kid = not my wallpaper. Plus, my cat(s) would most certainly NOT approve and I am afraid of them. :-0

  12. DaytimeDeb says:

    weird wrap. the (s) should have wrapped with the word cat. As in, cat(s)

  13. Maru is fabulous!

  14. I can’t get enough of Maru. He is such an adorable little kook.

  15. TracyFlick says:

    i like to think that a single girl in Japan is probably looking at Maru somewhat drunkenly after drinking too much with her gay best friend as this New York girl is right now.

  16. omg so cute

  17. Awwww. he’s a cutie. Let people enjoy the pron if that’s what they’re into.

  18. CakeOrDeath says:

    I enjoyed the bun wallpaper but it was gone in a heartbeat when I saw Maru!

  19. someone please help, email me if you know.
    i once saw two cute maru videos, and now i cant find them again.
    one where he was in a see through box/packaging, and one where a smaller box was stuck around him like a belt and he still tried to get in another one/

  20. 5^^now8ing says:

    Yay for Maru!

    Yay for cat pron! (and Ed. w/ great sense of humor!)

    Re: wallpaper — my kids are too old to be cute enough for wallpaper, and I can never catch my animules at their cutest. Mine is Teh Cute squirrel on tree trunk with important announcement to make. (I just pretend he’s one of our backyard squirrels.)

  21. @Marie –

    You’ll find those videos on Maru’s page.

  22. Cool!! XD

  23. What a great collage, oops, wallpaper, Brink G.! Full of win.

    All righty, does Maru rhyme with baroo?

  24. I love Maru, but that collage is WAAAAAAAY too big for my screen. Seriously, not everyone on CO has a huge flatscreen computer. Come on, be fair!

  25. Paunchie says:

    what about the bag on the head Maru?

  26. 5^^now8ing says:

    Carb hat wallpaper gives me a 404 Not Found – ?

  27. 5^^now8ing says:

    Crab* hat, obviously. (carb hat would be something completely different)

  28. Oooooh! TWO Maru wallpapers! How ever will I choose?!?! From his perfect 90 degree leg splayage, to sproinging unexpectedly out of the giant box, I just can’t get over this goofy little guy. He is one happy little kitteh.

  29. We want Winston wallpaper!

  30. “Now with crab hat!” is the best slogan ever.

  31. I do not “like” Maru, I am Obsessed With Maru. Ever since we became catless, he’s like my surrogate kitteh… my friends, WHO HAVE THEIR VERY OWN KITTEHS AT HOME and can play with them anytime they want, do not understand. A great big ARIGATO to Maru’s human, for so generously sharing him with the less fortunate.

  32. catseeker says:

    This collage could also be titled, “The Many Pupil Dilations of Maru”.

  33. Jean Walsh says:

    I didn’t think any hat could rival Aretha Franklin’s inaugural hat. Guess I was wrong.
    Maru’s crab shell hat knocks it out of the park.

  34. Theo, you may feel that crab hat is “soooo earlier this week” but that just shows that you are woefully naive where “fashion” vs. “style” are concerned. Fashion fades, but style lasts and lasts. Think Mullets vs. the little black dress. Neon spandex vs. an Hermes bag. Lindsay Lohan vs. Audrey Hepburn. Trucker caps vs. Crab Hat.
    All the great ones have looked to Crab Hat for influence: Chanel, Lagerfeld, Gaultier, Maru . . .
    If you have any doubts about the lasting style influence of Crab Hat, please see http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/gp/node/n/164982011/185-2900473-9691436?ie=UTF8&bcBrand=core

  35. Now that is disturbing.

  36. Disturbing, yes! But you have to admit that it is, in fact, a crab hat, circa 1955.

  37. My apologies. Let me rephrase: Crab hats are SOOOO fifty-plus years ago. 😉

  38. Touche, Theo. Touche!

  39. “A new version, now with CRAB HAT” 😀 😀 I’m dying!!! This sentence made my day!

  40. Leslie (NTA) says:

    ok, ok, deal me in, on this commentary. HALP!!
    I became intrigued w/ the Crab Hat Humor/ references to 50 yrs ago/ etc (comments 35-39). & clicked on the link above & even went into the Search Box on the Fashio(whatevertherestofthenameofthewebpageis) …typed in Crab; 0; then typed in Crab Hat: 0

    Please explicate the explanashun. I wish to unnerstan’ & find meself befuddled.
    Also also …I wunner, whether the “Rich” above, who votes for Winston wallpaper …..
    well, I think we who are avid Winnie fans, see where my question is going on this one.

    Yours in service to The Great Maru AND the Great Winston

  41. They seem to have changed the artwork on that page. For a teenier version and a cartoony version, go here: http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/gp/node/n/491136011/187-8531954-5043263?ie=utf8&bcbrand=core

    It is the “hotel benefit” image and the line drawing of the mannequin head. The hat is small in the images, but still quite unmistakeably crablike.
