Another quality link foraged by Ant!



  1. One of my fave Maru vids 😀

  2. Has Maru gained some weight? Or maybe it is just the too-small boxes.

  3. kibblenibble says:

    Does this box make my butt look fat?

  4. Flutterby says:

    Definitely too-small boxes!!

    Ah CO, you have made my Caturday complete with MARUUU-chan !!

  5. LovesDogs says:

    I love Maru.

  6. Maru is now a magician, at 0:35 he makes the box disappear. 😆

  7. Aaahhhhh…The classic Maru “run, leap, slide, splay” action. It just never gets old.

  8. That last part is the living end. So Cute!

  9. Martha in Washington says:

    This made me much happier than the post above! Thanks Maru!

  10. same here!

  11. What is it about this overweight cat that’s so stupid it wear boxes like boxers? I don’t know but he fascinates and enchants us.

  12. Maru sure goes after those boxes with a vengeance. Imaging having him around during birthdays and Christmas!

  13. Ma-ru , Ma-ru,
    roly poly Ma-ru
    Ma-ru , Ma-ru,
    Eat him up yum !!!!!

  14. SlaveToCat says:

    Any hottie wearing boxes turns CO viewers into hypnotized jello blobs.

  15. SlaveToCat says:

    Its the latest fashion all the cool dudes and dudettes are wearing today. Pick out an outfit that is 5 sizes too small and pour yourself into it.

  16. Is it just me or does Maru have an expression on his face that states “Something isn’t right here” with the too small box?

  17. Earworm for Earwig! Aaaargh!

  18. I just got Maru’s book for my birthday and there are pictures of Maru as a kitten in it! He looks just like Maru only tiny! It was a good birthday, except I ended up ded from teh qte of the Kitten-Maru.

  19. Man, I LOVE that cat! >^..^<

  20. I loff the slidingks and the jumpingks and the splayingks!

  21. Fird Birfle says:


    No, Maru.
    It makes you look like a “magnificent beast”.

  22. This is undoubtedly the cleanest apartment I have ever seen in my life.

  23. Faith, keep in mind that it is a Japanese apartment. They are famous for the pulcrituidinous habits. I absolutely LOVE the Maru videos.

  24. sorry, too many i’s. Pulcritudinous.

  25. maru can barely contain himself! bwwa ha ha ha!! made myself laugh.

    maru is such a wonderful cat. i’m always checking in on his blog.

  26. I would pay good money just to hold Maru and squish him for like 10 seconds.

  27. Maru’s New Year’s Resolution: to fit back into his skinny box.

  28. violetgreen says:

    Maru might just be a turtle born into a cat’s body.

  29. 1. Maru is my favorite cat in the whole world.
    2. I kind of hope Maru’s owner has no job, because I’d like to think she just gets to sit there and watch Maru all day
    3. Because that’s what I’d do

  30. Love Maru!

  31. Classic Maru footage, and excellent as always! Please never stop delivering the Maru.

  32. I was pretty sure that was a back paw peeking out of the box in the first scene. How kind of Maru to confirm it for me. 😀

  33. Maru has splayage perfected.

  34. I love Maru’s immediate freeze when he lands in the last box in the third-time’s-a-charm segment. Like he’s afraid to move and mess up his success 🙂

  35. Thanks, we all needed that!

  36. Silent Meow says:

    I wonder if Maru ever put his butt in a too-small box and it got stuck in there?

  37. Maru’s tail is almost as big as my whole cat!

  38. Fird Birfle says:

    I would also.
    Excellent point.

  39. I have to point out that he is not stupid.

  40. I LUFF his tail! very slow swish swish swish…

  41. I have scanned a goodly amount of Maru videos……;
    Haowsumebber: I have never ever realized the true extent of Maru’s box problem;
    I think he is quickly reaching the point of no return if someone does not intervene;
    So I am suggesting we set up a Box-Rehab Fund for him and keep it very simple:
    i.e. to contribute any spare pennies in our wallets; or collect the string our kittehs have grown tired of playing with, & the lint build-up in our pokkits: we can stockpile all that & take it all en masse to the nearest textile scrap-yard: I figure, if we play our cards right, we can make about $25.00 or so…..that might be enough for an initial down-payment for a low-priced kitteh-shrink……..! (or mebbe nawt…….!!) 🙄

  42. Me too. He is such a goon. 🙂

  43. Oh, that is so nice, Earwig 😀 Do you know where one can get it? I live in Coquitlam, Bristish Columbia, Canada. Does “Chapters” carry it?

  44. Same here, Barbarellea Buchner (@themadcatlady) >^..^< 😀

  45. Blue Footed Booby says:

    Right as I started this vid itunes started playing Donar’s Oak, by Falkenbach. It was kind of a surreal combo. Maybe it’s just the rum talking, but it kinda works. With the power of youtube doubler you, too (-b) can experience this feeling!&start1=&

  46. Is it me, or does Maru look Japanese?

  47. good one!

  48. SoccerSue says:

    I got it for Christmas! 🙂 Teresa- all the major bookstores down here (Seattle area) seem to carry it so you can probably find it at Chapters (one of my fave places to hang out in Vancouver, btw). Or if nothing else:

  49. LOL I lof Maru Especially when he runs and dives into boxes and slides across the floor.

  50. Alice Shortcake says:

    …and once again Maru’s human has made me feel that my slightly messy flat is in fact a rat-infested rubbish dump.

  51. Andi from NC says:

    I always feel so relaxed (Zen, if you will) after watching the Maru videos….

    Love Maru!!

  52. Hey, Teresa!

    I’m delurking… because I live in Nanaimo! How cool to find a fellow Qte’r on CO…

  53. tobesograteful says:

    Fortunately for us there is just no hope for Maru, he will never be able to resist any box for the rest of his life. The latest of Maru antics will always be my favorite ‘kitty-vid’.

  54. I do believe Maru’s box love is unsurpassed!
