Maru’s Catoupée!

Step One: Look really cute and get your coat brushed thoroughly. Remember to save the accumulated hair!


Step Two: Press and mold hair together to form a pleasing hairstyle, like this one called “The Katherine Hepburn”.

Step Four: Be like Maru and store your catoupées in boxes.

In The Beginning

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.

Maru Mystery Solved?
