This Couch Ain’t Big Enough for Maru of Us

It’s Caturday, and Maru and Not Maru are engaged in a fierce battle for control of territory. With tails twitching, the pair skirmish and retreat, again and again. The struggle is long, but in the end only one can prevail. Which will it be? Who will occupy the throne of honor, and who will be Maru-ooned? We may never know.

Thanks to Andrew Y. at our Maru desk.

    You’d think with all that tumbling the couch would be filled with cat fur. But, nooooo. Not in Maru’s world!

    Maru doesn’t shed because he is actually an alien, like in the Men in Black movies. I’m also pretty sure that “Mugumogu” doesn’t really exist. It is Maru that makes all the videos and submits them to YouTube. 😊

      Yes, I think Hana is in charge of editing and continuity. Maybe Mugumogu handles Craft Services, but I have no doubt that His Portliness is the producer/director of all.

        …At about 3:30 and 5:30 of video, does anyone know what those mushroom-shaped doodads are on the floor at far left?

          I had the same question. They must be cat toys, right? But Maru couldn’t possibly pack himself inside one of them. Maybe scratchy things?

          Baskets? Decorative containers of some kind?

    I love that Mugumogu lets them play/fight. My husband is so afraid that our cats will hurt each other that at the first little sound of play/fight he’s there separating them even in the middle of the night.

    Maru sliding off the couch under the armrests TWICE! I was ROFLMAOing.

      I too loved it when he slipped off the couch. Clearly unintentional, but then he sits there on the floor going, “yeah, meant to do that; all part of my strategic plan!”

      Laughed out loud at that! The look on his face!

    New couch cushions seem to be more stiff. Better for bouncing and loud tail thwapping.
    Love cat tail thwapping sound.

    Maru’s “OMG, how dare you” look XD

    All that movement and no box?

  8. Starfish February 6, 2016 / 3:26 pm

    Is that some Maru mewing at 3:45-ish?

    HELP!!!!! Instead of a Maru video, I’m getting a cartoon called “I will always remember you.” It’s of a baby elephant with it’s mom, and I stopped it when the mom got shot with an arrow. I’m sure there’s a “happy” ending, but I’m still distressed. 🙁

    • Catwhisperer February 6, 2016 / 5:58 pm

      OK, now when I went back to the home page, the right video is there. I don’t know what happened, but that was some s***!

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike February 6, 2016 / 5:59 pm

      That was on a different page. There may have been a technical glitch, but you shouldn’t be seeing that video on this page. Try reloading the page and you should get the Maru video.

      • Catwhisperer February 6, 2016 / 6:11 pm

        I did, and then I scrolled down and saw the other post related to the elephant video and read the comments. I’m in support of your posting it — just wasn’t prepared when I was expecting antics of The Circle.

        Thanks for all you do, Mike. Keep up the good work!

    I really want to see Maru and Hana battle for control of the World Cow.

    NTMTOM the most recent comments list is not loading. Is there a way to make it show a longer list of comments? With more comments coming the list passes by some good ones.

    • Not That Mike The Other Mike February 7, 2016 / 7:11 am

      Faye, are you using a mobile device or a tablet? I’ve been experimenting with some layout changes on those platforms. There should still be a list of recent comments at the bottom of each page. If you liked the other list, I can restore it. Sorry for the disruption.
