Breaking News: Maru Eats!

Good morning, readers! This is truly an exciting day for the blog, because we have news of a new Maru video, and our source Sarah D. is telling us that in this video Maru and Not Maru eat dry foods. We are getting conflicting reports on the brand of dry food they are eating, we think it may be Friskies or Meow Mix, we’ll try and get that information to you later today, but right now I’m now being told that our Action Eyewitness News KibbleKam is standing by at Dish Central to capture the eating in progress, so let’s cut to the KibbleKam!

    A few years ago, Maru was my introduction to the world of cats on the interwebs. I was well and truly hooked. And today, with a goofy smile on my face, I find myself completely mesmerized by watching him simply eat a few pieces of cat food. I’m so glad he has a place at the NTMTOM table. KibbleKam!!

    Does Mugumogu feeds them individually in a “feeding box? That would explain the impeccable floors a little.

      In a few early posts on her blog she talked about the new feeding box. She had to add little doors too, because Hana eats very fast and then tries to steal Maru’s food!

        Shoot, I meant earlier posts, like last week or so, not early posts like years ago.

        My 5 cats play musical bowls with each other. I guess the food is always better in somebody else’s bowl.

          Why am I not surprised that Maru eats IN A BOX?!

    Are we not all Not Maru?

      Do they have fudge brownies
      in Japan? *fixated*

        If they do I’m sure they cut or stack them into cute animal shapes!!!

      Very Zen.

    NOMTOM, thanks for letting Maru&Hana in to your wonderful blog. I would miss them so much if you hadn’t. Yeah, there’s always mugumogu’s website, but it’s just not the same without all the commenters here.

    PS was there ever a time when Maru was reluctant to eat? His girth suggests not.

    • Juno January 25, 2016 / 10:27 am

      Yeah, that was my first thought when I saw the headline: “Really, is it news to anyone that Maru eats?” (Though, as I have mentioned before, Maru is not fat–he is cobby-bodied.) Then I watched the video and was completely unsurprised that Maru eats with the same slow-but-steady, dogged determination with which he does everything else. I just love his “gotta get ‘er done” attitude.

    Ahhh! It feels like home now!!

    I love how Hana wrinkles her nose while she crunches her food!

    • Catwhisperer January 23, 2016 / 1:56 pm

      And the sound of cats eating is always kinda funny to me. I don’t know why…

      • Faye January 23, 2016 / 2:12 pm

        Kitties crunch. Dogs inhale.

    NTMTOM making a Maru post on Caturday. Everything is right again!

    • Ronni January 24, 2016 / 8:28 am

      Agreed, Starfish. I’m so grateful to learn of this place from the comments on the last Cute Overload post. Feeling less sad now. 🙂

      Welcome, new commenter, and thanks for sharing those blog pages. Maru’s and Hana’s owner is pretty clever!
