Stepping out of hiatus briefly to bring you...Maru, The Sliding Box Cat.

Visit the LOLCATs at I Can Has Cheezburger.

That is all.


  1. Who needs snow and a sled when you're a clever kitty!

  1. Cheesy says:

    LMAO/ Easily entertained, and easily entertains!

  1. Just like a child whose favorite toy is a cardboard box rather than the expensive toy that was inside.

  1. That was fabulous! Especially the shot where we can see the cat's face in the box, and the one where he turns sideways to say, 'Did ya see THAT?'

  1. i saw this and loved it. thanks for showing it. too funny!!!

    smiles, bee

    I so wish life could be that simple for us two legged types.

    Hope the recent pummeling of rain up your way didn't give you and Pam any problems.

  1. I am laughing out loud here. That was too funny!

  1. Akelamalu says:

  1. Kanani says:

    It's times like this that I'm so glad the internet exists! Can you imagine me even knowing about the sliding cat 20 years ago? Never!!

  1. Cherie says:

    That cat was probably entertained for DAYS! LOLOL

  1. Anndi says:

    So, let me get this straight. It's a diet box... and if you can slide your body through the diet box, you've succeeded? Looks like he's almost there.

    Go Maru! You can do it.

    I am not here, you did not see me, I am not commenting. Also, I didn't bake a cake on my blog yesterday.

  1. Empty boxes have ALWAYS been the best toys for kids AND cats!
    Hugs and blessings,

  1. "Hot Slow-Mo Action" *ROFLMAO!*

  1. Travis says:

    WT4W: I know!

    Cheesy: And wasn't he proud of himself too???

    Songbird: Cardboard boxes made great forts!

    Bee: Did you watch the one with the little kitten eating the broccoli too?

    Mike: I could see Mr Tucker trying that too!

    Charles: Wasn't it hilarious?

    V: You too Sir!

    Jeff: The commute to and from work was a bit of an adventure, but we managed it.

    Mimi: This one ranks up there with Ethan the giggling baby for me.

    Akelamalu: Yup!

  1. Travis says:

    Kanani: Youtube rocks!

    Julie: I love it when kitties get silly!

    Mags: One day you'll have to get some kitties again.

    Starr: I added the cheezburger website to my google reader!

    Cherie: And so was his family I'll bet!

    Ann: Did you say CAKE?

    Storyteller: Indeed!

    Lana: HA!

  1. Dana says:

    Hehe - we had a cat who used to slide across the kitchen floor...until my dad built a cabinet...right where the cat would run to and start sliding. Hiliarty ensued!

  1. Linda says:

    Now that is just too cute!

  1. what is it with kids, cats and boxes? ;) lol

  1. Thanks for the laugh, Travis! Did you suggest the MM committee thing to Mo? I'm up for it.

    Are you watching the Giants? 7-3 at the moment "(

  1. TopChamp says:

    ha ha. I want to try this now, but know that Dixie wouldn't fit in a cereal box no matter how hard he squeezed.

  1. Thanks for the laugh! :)

    I hope all is well with ya. Things have been crazy on my end as well and I've not been around much myself. Take care, my friend!

  1. totally worth watching...what a riot!!!

  1. Roger says:

    Thanks Trav I need that!

  1. Jeni says:

    How can anyone watch that and NOT love cats? Their antics are just priceless. I watched a neat "live, in person" performance the other night when Chino discovered a mouse in the house. She chased it, caught it, trapped it by holding a paw on the mouse's tail, tossed it in the air, flipped it all over the place. At one point the mouse lay down, flat on its back, playing dead I think. Another time, the mouse sat up, paws together, held up to the mouth, looking for all the world that it was praying! Probably was too, ya know. (I would have been if I were the mouse.) Eventually, the mouse escaped -ran under my computer desk so no doubt, unless Chino spies her again and doesn't go easy on it this time, I can probably expect to look up sometime at the monitor and see two little beady eyes, looking at me from just under the monitor!
