Meet Maru, the amazing and amusing Japanese cat
Here is a general introduction to his habits.

Now watch his patience and persistence in getting a toy mouse out of a set of plastic drawers.

And enjoy the dozens of other videos his owner has taken.

1. I don't know what impresses me more
Maru, or a cat keeper who would spend that much time getting to know their kitty and videotaping him.

2. Maru is one great looking cat!
I love the markings on his back! The videos are great...it's just like having a cat in my living room!

How in the world did you find these vids??
