DH sent me these youtube videos this morning and I laughed out loud. He read about Maru in Wired magazine (of all places). What a cute kitty!

The first video is an intro to Maru and the second is Maru tackling a big box.

To add a bit to the cuteness, Maru in Japanese means "round" or "circle."   Cheesy

Oh that is brilliant - "slim box" gets my vote - he would've made that one if he hadnt tried to fit his tail in too  Grin Grin Grin

I just love the way his tail swishes all the time too - Desmond Morris says that's a sign of confusion/ not being sure what they want.  In his case I'd say he's desperate to get in the box but unsure how to achieve it & hates it eluding him  Shocked Shocked

I could watch these all day - anyone want to volunteer to write me 3000 words on function of questions in spoken discourse so I can have laugh at maru & surf icanhazcheezeburger instead?Huh?
