THIS JUST IN: “Many Boxes & Maru”

Make it a Maru Monday! WHO knew Girth Boy has a thing for boxes?


NEW Maru: In This Clip, Maru Does One Thing.

And he does it VERY well. (Dreaming of…boxes?)

NEW Maru- Now, THIS Is A Surprise

Maru…in a box. Who woulda thunk it.


There HAS to be a law of physics that says there is no way His Majestic Blorpness (FAVE FRAME™, above) can FIT inside a box of that size. And yet he does it, on cue and on camera, for the 16th time. No dust bunnies in sight, either.

THIS JUST IN: Maru & Hana Go Camping

The Dynamic Duo love their new light blue tent!


Commenter Sowmya D. is goin’ on and on about Maru’s cow. You mean, THIS cow?

Happy Seventh Birthday To MARU

For several years you’ve made the Net your home
And entertained millions with your girth
So today you’re now seven years old
The most popular cat on Earth.

Maru this birthday tribute is for you
Your videos bring C.O. lots of clicks
We hope you’re with us for many more years
With Hana…and your portly bag o’ tricks.
