Maru the fearless cat
Who is Maru the Media Star?
You don't have to be slim, svelte and sophisticated to be a Media Star. You can be an overweight leisure-loving cat with a bouffy head and still hit the Bigtime!
Maru proves this.
He's a wonderful role model for the young. Forget the diets! Forget the fashionable gaunt look. Just be yourself.
Maru is a Japanese cat
Maru looks a lot like a Scottish Fold cat, a strange breed with folded ears, but Maru's ears are definitely straight.
I think he's just an ordinary everyday black tabby with a fat belly and a bouffy head. .
Maru lives in Japan with his carer, mugomogo, and worldwide sighs of relief were heard when his safety was assured after the terrible disasters in Japan of late.
Maru has a thing for getting into things
I admire dedication. Watching Maru and his boxes I feel inspired to keep trying for the ultimate myself.
Try, try, and try again. Failure isn't in a word in Maru's vocabulary.

Mugumogu has a sweet. soundless style of video capture. No blasting speakers, just pure Maru.
Subtitles are added for those of us who can't read Japanese. The Engrish translations just add to the charm.
Mugumogu posts videos of Maru regularly.
Another Lesson in Life from Maru
From Maru we learn not to blindly follow the latest fashion crazes. We learn to make our own way, we learn to be frugal.
It's amazing what you can do with a paper bag.
Don't be swayed by the Dictates of Fashion
