    Most of the time, Mugumogu does stuff for the cats’ enrichment. This one was for Maru’s loyal followers, I think. What a riot! Remember the time she drew different hair styles on a box for Maru to wear?

    Her floors are perfection, as always, but what about the bedspread? Does she wash it every day?

      I was thinking of the same video with the hairstyles. Very creative. And Maru is THE MOST wonderfully ridiculous hunk o’ cuteness.

      PS I shortened my ID but I’m still me. Hey, it’s a poem.

    Everything Maru does is just wonderful and ridiculous. I’m amazed he doesn’t have more Instagram followers!

    • Murray C. April 19, 2016 / 12:06 pm

      I don’t even know what Instagram is.😧

      • Smartypants April 19, 2016 / 3:32 pm

        Instagram is a thing (platform?) where people post pictures and videos…that’s the totality of my knowledge about it πŸ˜€

        • Murray C. April 19, 2016 / 7:54 pm

          I thank you – I’m at least a bit closer to understanding it!😊

          • Julie April 19, 2016 / 10:30 pm

            You should get Instagram. You can only follow cute animals if you want. The only humans I follow are Taylor Swift, Julian Edelman and Gronk. The other 300 + accounts are animal accounts, which has helped me fill the post CO apocalyptic void.

            You don’t even need a smartphone. You can create an account on your computer’s browser and just look at thousands of cute animals.

            The best are the “foreign” animals because you just have to guess at the captions to the pics.

              Thanks! Not sure if I should do yet another thing to help me procrastinate! Tempting, tho’.πŸ€”

            • Smartypants April 20, 2016 / 9:03 am

              Cool! I will definitely check it out – procrastination is my middle name!

      • Clairdelune April 21, 2016 / 3:11 pm

        Thank you thank you Murray C., now I don’t feel so alone in a world infested with Instant- and Selfie- everything. When I become Queen of the Universe, I will abolish all Instant stuff, including -gram and -ramen, and no more Selfie/selfish me me me. πŸ˜€

    Did I see a slide??? Does maru have a slide?!?!?! I demand answers

  4. Janice April 19, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    Priceless. And my Vet thinks my ten-pound cat is overweight?

    • Faye April 19, 2016 / 2:22 pm

      My cat weighs precisely 11.6 lbs. says my talking scale when she sits on it. And she is not fat. I had 14 pounders. Humph to ur vet.

      • Juno April 19, 2016 / 3:13 pm

        Just like people, cats come in different shapes and sizes.

    • Kar April 19, 2016 / 5:35 pm

      As long as they can pass the rib/backbone test and your vet isn’t yelling at you, I wouldn’t worry.

    Maru is one of a kind and Mugumogu housekeeping puts me to shame !

    • 6rabbits April 19, 2016 / 7:21 pm

      This is the reason why I can never post videos of my buns! I HATEπŸ‘Ώcleaning, but LOVE organizing–go figure. If there was a “human shaming” site for house cleaning…

      • allein April 19, 2016 / 7:23 pm

        Come organize my house and I’ll do all the vacuuming and stuff.

        • 6rabbits April 19, 2016 / 7:34 pm

          Do you live near Indiana?πŸ˜‰

          • allein April 19, 2016 / 8:55 pm

            New Jersey. Sorry.

            • Murray April 19, 2016 / 9:27 pm

              Wow! I was wondering about animated emoticons! How you do that???

              • allein April 19, 2016 / 9:36 pm

                I did a google image search and copied the image’s URL. If the URL ends in .gif you can just paste it in a comment and it should work. (If it ends in .jpg that’s a still image.)

                (For the record, that image was about an inch tall in the image search result. I don’t know why it’s so huge on here.)

                • Not That Mike The Other Mike April 19, 2016 / 9:52 pm

                  The image is larger because the system I found for this purpose insists on setting a fixed size. I’ve been meaning to tinker with it so that it reduces large images, but doesn’t enlarge small ones.

                  • allein April 19, 2016 / 10:10 pm

                    Interesting. I guess it wasn’t noticeable when I’ve posted gifs in the past.

                • Murray April 19, 2016 / 11:26 pm

                  Thanks, good to know.

        • Murray C. April 19, 2016 / 8:29 pm

          Just take a real close-up and no one will be the wiser. I used to be a good house keeper but the house we’re in now is kinda big and I’m less energetic than I once was. You can’t do it all.

          • 6rabbits April 20, 2016 / 7:33 am

            Used to do better, also, when I actually worked a 40hr. Week. Now I work 55-60, and somethin’s gotta give.

    I love how Maru unwittingly puts the wig on himself. All Mugumogu had to do was put it on the floor, knowing he would be helpless to resist.

    • Amy April 19, 2016 / 3:15 pm

      **I see box. Must put body into box at all costs!**

  7. Andrew April 19, 2016 / 1:58 pm

    I love you so very much, Maru βŒβ– -β– 

    (βŒβ– _β– ) Yeahhhhhhhhhhh

  8. Andrew April 19, 2016 / 2:01 pm

    I love you so very much, Maru
    (βŒβ– _β– ) Yeahhhhhhhhhhh

  9. Gigi the cat lady April 19, 2016 / 2:53 pm

    Wait a minute I just watched the video again and am I seeing things or does the light turns on by itself when Maru walks into the bathroom?

    • Juno April 19, 2016 / 3:14 pm

      Yes, I noticed the same thing. I like to imagine there’s a teeny light switch a couple inches above the floor, just for Maru and Hana . . . but it’s probably a motion sensor.

    • 6rabbits April 19, 2016 / 7:24 pm

      Yep. Very handy. Never thought of using those sensors in the bathroom, though.

  10. Amy April 19, 2016 / 3:17 pm

    I love how Hana is all “Dude, you have something on your face.”

    And shout out to NTMTOM for the CSI: Miami reference πŸ˜€

    • 6rabbits April 19, 2016 / 7:26 pm

      Ok, I KNEW there was something with the sunglasses reference, but it eluded me!πŸ˜„

  11. Kar April 19, 2016 / 5:36 pm

    Maru’s in Japan, maybe this is one of those Anne of Green Gables things.

    • 6rabbits April 19, 2016 / 7:36 pm

      Could be! AOGG is another reason I must visit Japan one day.πŸ™πŸ˜πŸ±

      • Kar April 19, 2016 / 9:09 pm

        And they go to Prince Edwards Island to get married and wear straw hats with copper pigtails attached to the hat.

        • 6rabbits April 20, 2016 / 7:26 am

          Which…is a tad bizarre–the pigtails part, I mean. The rest is cool. Could anyone ever have predicted that fandom?

  12. allein April 19, 2016 / 7:17 pm

    I couldn’t watch the video until I now that I’m home, but I saw the title in my email hours ago and have been singing the Pippi Longstocking song ever since.

  13. Lurkingduck April 20, 2016 / 11:41 am

    I love Maru’s feets. They’re just so perfect! Or should that be purrfect?
