Cute Overload :D
It’s not the heat, it’s the Marumidity. But Maru, you have so many fans.
Don’t look, Ethel! Maru’s over-exposed! (peeks through fingers)
Thanks again to hot sender-inner, Ant.
Were it not for the tail I would have thought he was dead.
Me too Sally!!! I just LOVE this cat!!!
Doesn’t he look just like that wall clock? Tick, tock!
I was thinking the same thing!
That was my first thought as well!
Me four! :-)
Shouldn’t his eyes being going back and forth in sync with tail?
I love that cat!!
Same here :D
Who’dathunk that such a Floofy person could become so FLAT???
(also– he *might* need an introductory course to Privacy Tailio 101 …..)
While not as floofy, Kyuri gets just as flat. (And, yes, he needs that intro Privacy Tailio course, too!)
omg! I would totally not be able to stand seeing that without smooshing my face into teh belleh!!!1!
that is one completely happy & trusting kitteh!
My boyfriend’s cat does the same thing (minus the tail twitching). But you try to rub her belly with anything (hand, foot, etc), she will attack with grabby paws and nom on you.
Seriously!! I would be huffing that belleh in a hot second!
Really, I just wish that Maru would learn how to relax! :roll: What a fantastic cat.
heh heh “learn to relax”
That’s just how I feel…only less adorable.
I’M less adorable, that is, lol. Maru is completely adorable.
Oh, I have my doubts about that, Rumi, I have my doubts.
PS, I love how his little hips wiggle with his tail. Cute.
I noticed that, too. :mrgreen:
Papa knows how to attract us gals, don’t he??? :)
I totally know how Maru feels here: inert, disinclined and whamdoodled, with a modicum of aggro.
Ern, excuse me, but YOU said that–not me.
Okay–you can now ignore the comment above.
er = ???
(but in a very pleasantly amused/bemused way)
Mary looks ded.
(Except for the tail, that part’s alive.)
Uh, ‘scuse me? I’m not even close to ded. I don’t think.
MarU and MarY, y’see :)
I thought it was only dogs who could relaaaax that way! I thought cats had more dignity.
Don Lockwood: “Dignity, always Dignity. ” :)
I was wondering when this would show up here! Bwahahaha!! And Maru is usually so…so…dignified….right??
i think maru has realized that a room is a box
that is very easy to squeeze into
Does anyone else want to grab those paws and spin Maru on the shiny hardwood floor?
(Perfect caption Pyrit)
yes, Miriam, you’re right, I also wanna watch Maru spin!!
And, if done somewhat gently, I bet he might enjoy the spin!!!
Whoa! This is too much first thing in the morning! The adorable Maru AND a reference to one of my favorite old novelty songs. “I hollered up to her, I said, ‘DON’T LOOK, ETHEL!’ But it was too late. She already got a free shot.”
I hollered, “Don’t look Ethel!” But it was too late, she’d already been mooned.
I also now have this song stuck in my head. It’s not late enough in the day for that….
Who’s that with him? Is that you Ethel? You git your clothes on! snerk
You shameless hussy!
ANY ANIMAL THAT WILL EXPOSE HIS BELLY LIKE THAT, IS A VERY CONTENT KITTY!!!!
yep, like my Mason aka Moby Dick :)
I love that Maru has assorted flavors of toe beans!
I noticed the toe beans too! – I was thinking that after I smooosh my face into the belleh, I would have to fondle the toe beans!
I wonder if Maru’s human can love on that tummeh!
She might be too dignified, but who knows what happens when the camera stops rolling??
maru has very dainty paws for such a….solid kitty.
One of my cats looked just like that the other day – we’re in Texas, and it’s brutally hot this time of year. Japan must be cooking this time of year! Poor Maru!
(Not intended to be a nuff, just saying, I and my cats feel Maru’s pain. XD)
It’s too late. I’ve already had a free shot.
Never noticed before that he’s a Japanese Bobtail.
erm.. he’s not, he’s a Scottish Fold without the folded earsies.
It’s a Maru area rug! I’ll take two, please.
Tailio making a furtive effort at privacy. Oh, to be so relaxed with not a care in the world. Just seeing this makes one know it is possible, espesh for an overindulged and much-loved kitteh!
This is what happens when a kitten learns to like belleh rubs ! They grow up & have no sense of privacy, no shame & will stop all household activity (like vacuuming or mopping) in order to get belleh satisfaction.
Maru’s person is very, very generous to share him with the world like this. After all, if there’s only one Maru, we can’t all have him.
1) Send Maru on a world tour
2) Charge his fans a modest fee to cuddle/be photographed with him
3) Use ginormous sums of money to repair earthquake/tsunami damage
*Begins a sign-up sheet, just in case…*
my goodness, I just realize he has the cutest meowing sound: http://www.youtube.com/user/mugumogu#p/u/2/6qrBODNy8t8
The way he jumps is just too cute, getting up on his haunches before he pounces.
Maru is the funniest cat on the planet. That’s what I think.
Live action kitties, I emphatically agree!!!
(simonscat might give maru a run for the money, when you add in anime kittehs)
I can’t believe that no one has pointed out yet that Maru is demonstrating Rule of Cuteness #41….and very well might I add!
That’s the cleanest floor I’ve ever seen.
Honestly, it doesn’t matter if I’ve spent the entire day doing housework – whenever I see a Maru video I feel as though I’m living in a landfill site.
Don’t we all?
@ Alice Shortcake: good description!
So true. So clean and tranquil, that place.
i know. i keep a pretty clean house but the minimalism of japanese design makes me look like a hoarder.
boy, does that ever describe it…not even cat hair. maybe maru doens’t shed….
Oh he sheds all right: http://sisinmaru.blog17.fc2.com/blog-entry-938.html But I guess all that brushing he seems to enjoy helps a lot with that.
Perhaps it was one too many boxes. Perhaps Maru has a ‘nip problem that he has hidden for months, nay, YEARS. Whatever the cause, I feel that Maru must come to my house for rehabilitation.
Maru was planking BEFORE it was hip.
never too tie-tie to twitch the tailio
I am surprised at the annoyed tail flip in such a relaxed, nearly conked out kitty. I ahve never before seen the tail flip combined with the conk out.
By the way, how has THIS Maru video never shown up here? He is not just addiceted to boxes, but to ANYTHING he can get into!
Wow. Look at THIS Maru video–a nonstop close-up of his face, eyes, and huge, soft round paws as he grabs a “silverine stick” (whatever that is) and goes “Leek, leek, leek, nom, nom, nom, crunch, crunch, crunch, rub, rub, rub!
Seriously, people, that stick is what he is really addicted to! It must be better than catnip. He goes NUTS on it and yanks it back with his paw or paws when his person tries to pull it away. But as soon as his person puts it on the floor, he loses all interest–only when she holds it does he love it passionately.
Then, at the end of the video, there is a “bonus track” in which Maru gives a hug and a kiss to the camera.
Go there. See that. Really.
Maru’s frustration when he finds a box that he cannot enter–because it is divided into several small separate sections.
oh wow, he measures the gap with his whiskers! too small to get head in?
Maru´s Own Version of Boxhab, I guess?
And hehe, from 0:35 onwards it looks like someone superglued him to the ceiling!!!
I’m surprised no one has done this yet:
*sigh* You know what? Having every single comment I post thrown into moderation really takes the fun out of commenting. :(
It’s probably just because you’re new. (I think?) Now that you’ve had some posts approved, you should be okay.
Must*snorgle*Belleh McFlufferson* *BONK* (smacks face on screen)
Oh, Maru! Let that tail dance!
That cat is rotted!!!! I luv em!!!
