Maru in the First Purrson

I always say, to keep your home super clean, feed your cat on a paper plate. Then you can just throw it in the trash!

The secret to inner peace is finding the upside to the downside. I will show you.

I found true happiness not in wealth and fame. I found it right here, on my “Yay!” paw pads. See?!

How did Maru type all that?! Images from the book, I Am Maru, by Mugumogu.



  1. Yay for Maru! After gazing at these for awhile, I can now get to work. (Okay. So maybe a few more minutes of gazing before getting back to the grind.)

  2. It’ll help you concentrate better, so totally defensible!

  3. Maru is gorgeous! Always brings a smile to my face!

    Does anyone else see a jointed teddy bear in Maru’s toe beans? I fear I have ingested too much Qte, and am hallucinating!

  5. I see it! You’re not completely crazy. 🙂

  6. Clairdelune says:

    I do see it!! OMG! I do! Clearly I have ingested waaay too much Qte also. LOVE Maru’s multicolor toe beans.

  7. Throw away Maru? NEVER!!!

    I don’t think so, but I do see Yoda’s head.

  11. Same here, Gigi 😀 I would pick Maru out of the trash can and cuddle him 😀

  12. Martha in Washington says:

    Where’s Maru’s tocks? I wanna see Maru tocks!

  13. Fird Birfle says:

    Martha, does an overhead shot suffice, if it INCLUDES the topside of Maru’s tocks??
    If so, see below:
