Cute Overload :D
There was a great void.
And Box said, “Let there be Maru,” and there was Maru.
Maru looks like he’s in his own little world.
For a kitty who’s in Box Heaven, Maru looks rather . . . disapproving.
Yeah! Can someone please add the “Disapproval” tag to this post?
Ha! of all the boxes to choose from, Maru goes for the teensiest bit of real estate available. Maru RULES. (Don’t tell our girl cat I said that. At 16+ lbs and 20 years of age, she owns this place and don’t you forget it! :-)
Yes, that crazy Maru takes the smallest box. What the heck??
And the MaRules say, “thou shalt chooseth the smallest box of all to smoosheth thyself into.” I Love Maru!
I love Maru. So much.
me too, i mean LOVE…
I can’t live without Maru!
That cat is something else.
Like. That’s a very Yogi Berra/Zen quality to that pronouncement.
did he find the smallest box and squeeze his
great self into it??!!
I’m going shoe shopping & would like to donate my boxes.
Well, he’s Japanese! Of course he’s good at making the most of a limited space!
Actually he is a Scot, residing in Japan with a very good servant!
Looks like a bread pan :-)
Exactly–the Maru muffin-top.
The Maru-ffin top, as it were.
The Gospel According to B. Kliban:
“Cat: one heck of a fine animal. Frequently mistaken for meatloaf.”
wah hahahahahaha, gasp. snork
Maru’s a loafer all right….
oooooooh NICE one :)
Everyone’s favorite fat cat is at it again, gettinginto tight situations !!!
Just gonna say it now…
MARU FOR PRESIDENT.
I don’t think Maru was born in America. Actually, he appears to live in Ikea.
Something could be said that using Maru’s box choices as a basis for political decision-making could, in fact, be a superior form of governance!
Indeed: Maru for Emperor of the World!
oh, how i agree. so sick of enemies of the state. poor state, getting gray hair. enemies would never figure out the box mandate…
I’m not certain that Maru’s owner is being a responsible caretaker. They KNOW Maru needs boxhab, and yet they’re enabling him with multiple boxes!
Forget Thundershirt. I can has Thunderbox?
I can’t even believe his entire body is in that tiny box.
15 pounds of awesome in a 1 pound box.
PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWERS! Itty-bitty living space.
*snerk* And yet, cats enjoy the itty-bitty living space so much more than genies!
Maru thinking: I am one with mah Universe
Kid in a candy store.
A Mosquito in a nudist colony.
Maru in a room full of boxes.
“A Mosquito in a nudist colony.”
I love the first pic! He looks like he’s going – Oh…oh…wow!! So many boxes….boxes!!!!
Kinda like me if locked in a chocolate factory…
It was his owner’s birthday present for Maru! She knows what he likes.
That completely rocks as a kitty bday present!
I love Maru! Round soft smooshy fluffy wonderfulness. :)
— and furry!!!! Don’t furget tha fur!!!!
Lol, and he chooses the smallest box to get comfy in :P so cute!
One asks the question; Can you fit a round cat into a square box 2 sizes too small?
Maru Answers: But of course. We cats are things of Mystery. Here to confound you humans and rule over you.
omG… I have somehow managed to find a baby picture of Maru. http://sisinmaru.blog17.fc2.com/
I can’t seem to find any kitten photos. I clicked on 2008, which is as far back as they seem to go. Can you provide a link to the actual baby pictures? Thanks!
Please direct me to the kitten photos or I’ll have to eat an entire chocolate cake to make up for my disappoinment!
Having a tough time getting this comment to “stick.” Here’s the correct link: http://tinyurl.com/ycp9y6y
Wow. Maru was even sturdy as a kitty. Love all the other photos on that link. Thanks!
For baby Maru pics: http://blog.goo.ne.jp/mugumogu/m/200711
That’s not even funny Marthava! My brain just melted after seeing baby pics of Maru! I so cannot handle that level of cute. My coworkers now think I am insane, thanks a lot! ;)
They always choose the box that just isn’t quite big enough for them!
When Maru discovered heaven…
Not only did he fill the void, he overfilled it. ^_^
:lol: You got that right :lol:
**Can we call “Matchingks Tag” for the elegant Tabbee Shag Rug near Maru??**
And — T.U.M. — you’ll need to *EITHER* adjust your trademark phrase to THIS:
(or alternatively, you could
still *SAY* “tineee tabbee” but just be In Denial Mode…?? ;) )
PS: “And the Void was scrupulously, medically, biologically & disinfectantly Clean”.
He can fold himself into the smallest shapes….Marugami?
I’m hearing “Thus Spake Zarathustra” while looking at these photos.
buhhh… buhhhh… buhhhhhhhhhh… BUH BUHHHHHHHHHNNN!!!!
“And Box looked upon Maru and said, “This is good. Hold on, wait, what are you doing, you can’t fit in there… ouch!”
We recently watched “2001: A Space Odyssey” for the first time (I know, I know). I knew about the use of “Also Sprach Zarathustra” beforehand, but it’s funny to see just how much that movie has influenced popular culture.
And I agree absolutely: that should be the theme music for Maru and his boxitude.
I can remember when the BBC used that music to accompany the Apollo moon launches.*
*She said, giving away her age
OH so you’re 17 now????? ;)
Snf! I find Pyrit’s commentry oddly moving! In a good way, of course.
I want to visit planet Maru… like now!! What a puss, gotta love him!
He looks like a loaf of bread! I want to nom him up.
NASA really needs to study Maru, because he’s clearly composed of some amazing space-age polymer that allows him to compress his mass into the smallest space possible.
came home with two new pairs of shoes.
cats not interested in the boxes.
or the bag.
Mine always do that when I purposely leave out boxes for them. (Or paper bags.)
But let me get out a box that I don’t want them to play with…….. :roll:
go on !! What do they do, THEN?????
Maru needs some serious Boxhab
She should have picked a bigger box. My kitten is always charging in bags.
One word: Amen!
I wish there was a video of Maru confronting this embarrassment of box riches. Maybe there is! [goes to look] Well, didn’t find one yet, but I did watch a great one where Maru is complaining loudly when his person is on the other side of a door. Then I got distracted reading people saying swell things about Maru in French. Then I dozed off for a bit. Wait, what was I doing?
You were enjoying Maru. Carry on !!!! :)
Oh! OK, thanks. Maru!! (hums happy little tune)
Ok, I have a theory.
There are many boxes of different sizes, and Maru goes for the one that squeezes him the most.
Why you ask?
Because he needses HUUUUUGZZZZZ!!!!!
This proves my theory that cats are liquids, and can take the form of whatever container they are poured into.
jajaja I like that, though maybe it’s “purrr-ed into”…
What does this mean for the Chosen Box?
I think my cats would be happy to be in this room with Maru and these boxes… all these boxes ^^ …
Santa DID get my letter, he knows I’ve been good! >^.^<
So, do Maru’s people just get boxes for him to play with?..Seems like they always have boxes. Regardless, he seems like one happy camper.
He looks as if he would be so cuddly!! :’I ….missing our Stinky.
**snort** gives a whole new meaning to muffin top. Why can’t we all have a Maru?!?
some serious box enabling going on here. boxhab failure…
Oh, of course he had to choose the tiniest little box to squeeze his big bum into! Hilarious yet adorable! :)
I love Maru! Such a cute fluff head in that tiny box!
I wanna see the video!!!
