二つの同じ箱とまる。Two same boxes and Maru.

What a cruel thing Maru’s owner, mugumogu, has done to him! As we all know, Maru loves to climb into Too Small Boxes, even when he can’t even fit in them. But what happens when he’s forced to choose between TWO Too Small Boxes? Does he choose the smallest one?

You won’t believe what he does! (Yes, you will; it’s just clickbait.)

    His tail is going, “deny, meeny, miney, mo!”

    That cat has the twitchiest tail (and I’m not referring to the speeded-up part of the video).

    Maru wags her tail almost like a d*g, and he clearly sees boxes as a particulary exciting challenge.

      My old girl here would have that sorted in no time – one box for pee and one box for poo….

    Am I the only one who thought of Schroedinger’s Cat while watching this?

      The tail is tracing out the interference pattern of the two-box-one-(collimated)-cat experiment.

    Live Long and Prosper Maru!

    I think it was pretty clear at the end that Maru had finally decided to pray to Ceiling Cat for help.

    Well, it’s clear that she is Schrödinger’s cat, looking for the superposition of two quantum states.

    Is cat tail lashing is their way of expressing excitement? I am not sure.

      I have read, (long time ago) that it is a reflection of the cat being uncertain.

      Having said that how this was ascertained I don’t know.

    Maru’s switching tail showed her annoyance at being presented with an insoluble challenge. Underscored by her looking directly at the cameraman – “What is this fresh hell you have consigned me to??”

      Hah! Yes. That was a look of pure resentment.

        Also anger. I’ve seen cats facing each other, hissing, and fiercely wagging their tails. Just the opposite of dogs

    It’s like one photon and two Atoms to excite

    He tries so hard not to look at the other box when he is in one of them!

    Has anyone figured out why cats love boxes? It doesn’t look like they are using them to hide, or attempting to find prey.

      I believe Simon’s Cat explains it:

        That’s logical. I must say, however, the small boxes to not look like a safe or comfortable place to sleep. But, I think the key is that cats in the wild would not find boxes but would find small holes and corners. Domestic cats make use of a different set of choices – to our great amusement.

    Maru/box = Trump/Twitter.

    I think Maru and his tail are two seperate entities. That is one weird Cat.
