Famous Internet Cat Maru Has A Book Coming Out

By / 08.16.11

When I first caught wind of Japanese web feline juggernaut Maru — the undisputed king of all the internet cats — in 2007, I thought he was just another internet cat. A one-hit wonder, most likely, whose owner just so happened to catch him on camera in a moment of frisky hilarity. I referred to him as “box cat,” since the video I’d seen of Maru demonstrated his fascination for boxes. Little did I know that four years later he’d still be around, better than ever, and that I’d be following Maru’s Tumblr, his Twitter feed and his YouTube channel. There’s not even a single human I do that with.
Maru’s been astonishingly prolific. When a video featuring him captured my heart for what seemed like the 800th time recently, I exclaimed, “JESUS CHRIST HOW CAN ONE CAT BE SO CONSISTENTLY ADORABLE AND HILARIOUS?!?!” This is Maru. And now, it appears as though I’ll also be buying his book.

Internet sensation Maru, the Scottish Fold cat (that lives in Japan) now has his first English language book, I am Maru, available on August 23, 2011. The book, published by Harper Collins, was compiled by his human companion, mugumogu, and gives insights on the “low-key life” of this internet feline celebrity. His blog of the same name, I am Maru, has plenty of fun images and links to all his video adventures.

I will totally buy that. In fact, I would actually like to go to Japan to meet Maru. Somebody pay for me to do that, please. Anyway, after the jump are a few of Maru’s greatest video hits, along with some amazing Maru gifs.
