Your morning adorable: YouTube star Maru the cat tries to climb into a tiny box

October 22, 2010 | 12:04 pm

We are big fans of Maru, the feline Internet celebrity who shot to stardom by doing funny things on video, usually involving boxes of varying sizes. (He can also be seen on video doing a number of other adorable things, including playing the tambourine with his tail.)

Well, Maru is at it again -- this time trying desperately to climb into a cardboard box that is far too small to contain his plump, furry frame.

Maru must have either a depth-perception problem or an alarmingly wrong-headed idea of his own size. That box is tiny. And he is not a tiny cat.

The silliness of cats will never cease to entertain us -- nor, we'd wager, will it ever stop mesmerizing the Internet-surfing world at large.
