Finally, a box too small for Maru!

Let us end the work week, as we often do, with a cat—this time a prominent one. Maru is of course Japan’s most famous cat, and perhaps the most famous Internet cat in the world. His forte is entering small boxes, and he’s able to get into very tiny ones. But at last, after many years, Maru has found a box too small to enter. He does try, though!

Voilà:

    What is the heart beat of Maru? Maybe six.

    Ha ha! Poor Maru just can’t resist, even if he can get only one paw into the box. I’m glad that Maru is back.

      I would love to know what he was thinking then.

      He looked thoroughly displeased throughout to me, though perhaps I’m anthropomorphising!

    What I like is the way that Maru’s companion is reclining, but eyes wide open open, ears up. Someone anticipates trouble.
