The Japanese cat Maru

Have you ever been told that the cat is an animal that cannot be funny? If you live with one, surely you have already had the opportunity to discover for yourself what a great lie that is, but if you still do not share your life with a feline, do not worry: the Japanese cat Maru will show you how endearing and entertaining at the same time that he can become a Patas.

And if you do not believe me, you just have to take a look at the videos that I will be showing you in this article. 🙂

Who is Maru?

Our protagonist is a cat of the breed Scottish Fold who was born on May 24, 2007 and has become the feline youtuber most viewed on social media, where started to become famous since 2010. Yes, indeed: only three years old, and with the invaluable help of his caretaker, he has managed to become a well-known animal; so much so that it is already part of the Guinness book of records because his videos have been viewed more than 341 million times.

What's more, He has been mentioned in different media, as the Entertainment Weekly in its article »Remarkable Kitty Videos», in The New York Times in one about famous cats and dogs. But in addition, its popularity is so great that in September 2009 a book and a DVD entitled "I am Maru" (I am Maru) was released, and in February 2011 another DVD entitled Maru Desu was released.

Why is it so famous?

Well, if I tell you the truth, I can't tell you. Perhaps it is because of her beautiful face, because of how much fun she is having, or, perhaps, because of the fixation she has for cardboard boxes. It's true: everyone cats like cardboard boxes: They are a simple but incredible refuge for them, where they also have a great time (and their families with them), but the reality is that few humans have the knack to make good and funny videos that hook people (I, to less, I am not able).

In any case, the obvious cannot be denied: Maru has more than half a million subscribers on her YouTube channel, called Mugumogu. Despite this, and as his family explains, "he is still as calm as ever."

So, if you want to follow Maru, do not hesitate, enter her channel. 🙂
