Maru = The Best Cat In The World

Posted in adventures in blogging, cute things with tags , , , , on July 29, 2009 by melsanie

So I should apologize to my brother and sister-in-law’s cats for that statement, but it’s true.  I’m sorry Lilly and Ender–you are adorable but you guys are not nearly as funny and palyful as Maru.  You’re probably asking, “Who is Maru?”  Well, Maru is a cat whose videos have been online for a while and they are freaking.hysterical.  He’s this chubby, overweight Scottish Fold residing in Japan who, “has a thing for putting himself into things.”  Anytime I’m feeling the teeniest bit sad, I just watch this chubbster dive into an empty soda can box or roll around in a garbage can.  Who knew that something so simple could be so amusing?  Even if you don’t like cats, this guy is an anomoly.  He’s playful and silly like a dog, but tries to maintain the dignity of a cat, which makes it even cuter.  Even if you don’t like cats, you will like this guy.  Trust me.

The clip above is my favorite, especially around the 1:50 mark, but if you want more, you should check out Maru’s blog.  Yes, a cat has a blog, but this one is funny so it’s worth checking out.  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Is anybody really doing what they want to do, or are some just better than others at faking it?
