    WOW! What an intrepid pussycat! What determination! And courage! Inspirational!

      I was thinking along the same lines. He approaches the swing the same way he approaches small boxes–just that same placid determination. He always keeps trying, and he always succeeds in the end. I should be more like Maru!

    At one point Maru was doing a more than passable Chacha. I also loved the careful consideration before the first try.

    Maru is the BEST! I love how he studies the situation making sure it’s secure and able to deal with his avoirdupois. I love the stompy feet as he practices his moves – and how TOTALLY BLASΓ‰ he is at the end!!! What a cat. And having a swing inside your house is pretty cool, too.

      I like how he looks up. Like he’s asking “Wait, what’s this supposed to be hanging from?”

    I love watching him figure it out – so smart! He’s a cat scientist.

    My head still hurts and I guess my mood as not improved much because all I could think of as I watch the video was ; Why the he** does she have a swing in the living room?

    I think I’ll go back to bed and start again tomorrow.

      Doesn’t everybody have a swing in their living room?

      Do you think she has a closet crammed full of cat toys that she just rotates so they always have something different to play with? How much of her income goes toward cat toys? Or do the makers of said toys send her free stuff so they will be seen on her channel?

        Allein, I bet it’s the latter – it’s the only way I can explain the shaved-ice-machine video πŸ˜€ (hint – cats only like shaved ice if you garnish it with kibbles…)

          I hadn’t seen that one! My poor little Stars would be utterly traumatized if I did that to her.

          The Shaved Ice Machine Video??? A little more info, please?

              Ooooo, fish flavored snow cones. I’d love one of those machines but in a less “carnie” style, a sleeker, more Art Deco look.

      I had a friend growing up whose family had a swing in their living room. But alas, they didn’t have a smart kitty like Maru to use it. He is so thoughtful, considering the best way to get up on it, and then sitting there so nonchalantly! What a cat!

    Not sure what’s happening, but no matter whose post I try to reply to it only says “Leave a Reply to Allein” – what gives Allein, have you taken over in some dastardly plot that’s been brewing all this time???😳

    • allein 🐾 September 10, 2016 / 5:24 pm

      um…I don’t think so…

      • Murray C. September 10, 2016 / 5:28 pm

        Not sure why – maybe because the ice machine video was downloading in the meantime??? A mystery.
