We’re big fans of Maru the cat’s impressive work in the field of Adorableness. Maru, a Scottish fold from Japan, has stretched the boundaries of what it means to be a cute cat and become an international celebrity in the process.

We can watch Maru’s ‘greatest hits’ all day -- particularly his exploits attempting to jump into a large cardboard box. His latest video installment, shown above, was uploaded just this past weekend and has already garnered more than 130,000 views!


Fun fact: Scottish fold cats are born with ears that point straight up, like most cats. When they’re around three weeks of age, some kittens’ ears spontaneously fold downward at the tip; other kittens’ ears remain straight and never form the breed’s classic fold at all.
