Ahahahaha this kills me. Her fur is very fuzzy so when she has that thing on smooshing the fur on her head it looks tiny compared to her body. Ahh what a special cat.

Hilarious! Funniest post ever. I cracked up when he turned around at the end with his little face squished.
Would a new kittehs in boxes category be appropriate?

Cats are so insane, lol, I love this. I definitely think a 'boxhab' category is in order after this.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 01:33 AM

Every time I would think my cats were smart, they'd do something like this and remind me that their brains are the size of walnuts. :)

This (and the video of a big floofy cat somehow squeezing its way into a jar) always reminds me of one of the laws of cartoon physics: "A cat will assume the shape of its container."

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 01:21 AM

His wee little meatball-head jammed in that container was TOO MUCH.

I agree this is hilarious, but has noone noticed the meaty feets at all? Those paws???

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 01:31 AM

love the end "problem?? i don't see a problem" lolol.. this is what happens when boxhab fails. ya move on to plastics

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 01:37 AM

LOL - these three videos have had me in stitches this morning...thanks for the the giggle...

BTW have you seen this cute hamster video http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=rfqNXADl3kU It's pretty cute :o)

This is all kinds of funny. I'm glad that the hoo-man took the box off at some point or else this would be 'nuff city.

What a silly little fuzzball! I think he might be my new favorite internet puddy.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 02:28 AM

I hope this box has holes. Beside that, it's really cute.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 02:38 AM

ROFLMAO!! I've now watched all three of these in a row, and my cat thinks I've gone insane. Thank you, CO!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 03:17 AM

That kitty has a supremely fuzzy head. Love it.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 03:19 AM

OMG!Fall on floor laughing! It's the fact that the cat did it 3 times!! ha ha ha ha ha.......(and breath)!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 03:26 AM

Oh, silly kitty! That was incredibly funny. The sight of a big fluffy cat with a teeny plastic head is too much- it should come complete with Homer Simpson "D'Oh!" sound effects!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 03:28 AM

I assume that "Maru" rhymes with "BAROO"? ^!^

To Nikki Lamb: "wee little meatball-head"


 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 03:55 AM

That's not a cat its a small horse, surely!?

You can always count on a cat to carry these things off with grace and dignity.

They try to make me go to boxhab I say no, no, no...

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 05:09 AM

Sweet kitty. Hope the box has holes and that the "toy" is not there when the caregiver isn't present. But, otherwise, a very silly, sweet kitty.

I LOVE this puss! Can you imagine the hours of laughs and smiles he shares with his human. What a personality. Um....personality = crazy!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 05:47 AM

darwin award!! seriously, can this cat be ever unsupervised?!?!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 05:51 AM

@Mo: It's not "personality" it's cattitude!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 05:58 AM

I think Maru and Winston need to make babies so I can have one. :)

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 05:59 AM

What gets me is he gets stuck, only to do exactly the same thing again, and again. It would be dangerous to leave this cat in the house alone with boxes

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 06:22 AM

His head is actually not little-- it's a pretty good-sized head. Then he crams it into that little thing . . . OMG

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 06:53 AM

I love how at the end he's just walking around the room, lookin' at the world through a little plastic box.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 06:53 AM

"Zo, [in Freud specs and beard] yu haf zis kitteh vut THROWS itzelf into zer confined schpaces mitout a hope of catchink ein maus, back to, as it were, zer VOOM? Jah, voom mit a "B".

[Shakes head]: "die Katzeh ist ein Freak!! Boxhab! Schnell!"

"What a maroon."-Bugs Bunny

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 06:54 AM

I was giggling profusely as I watched this in bed on my laptop. My boyfriend, half-asleep next to me woke up enough to see it and said, in the cutest sleepy tone:

"Ramming speed..."

XD Made me giggle more!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:05 AM

Most definitely funny, and I agree that if it weren't for the nice owner who "saved" that GIANT kitty from the box, people would be going nuts all over the place.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:17 AM

He's not the brightest crayon in the box, is he? What a funny guy!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:21 AM

Now I have two favorite series: the Tale of Winston and the Tale of Maru. Awesommmmeeeee!!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:29 AM

I love this cat. I love that he is such a box addict and his owners are great at enabling him. And don't you just want to give him a big squishy hug?

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:41 AM

Cute, but...plastic boxes are dangerous. Unless there are holes in that thing, allowing air through, Maru could suffocate if she gets her head caught in there when nobody's around! Please be careful!!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:48 AM

This reminds me of a dog I used to have. One morning he stole a bag lunch off of the counter. He had the brown lunch bag stuck on his head, but when I walked into the room he just cocked his head and wagged his tail. He figured if he just acted normal I would not notice the bag stuck over his head!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:53 AM

Haha, awesome! This made my day, thanks!!! I don't think it's stupidity, though, just a lack of wisdom probably...

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 07:53 AM

Best video ever. I laughed the entire length of it. <3 Maru! CO's newest Celebkitty!

caption: it's the dog's fault, he dared me to try and sniff the bottom of the box... but my dare for him is much much better!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:05 AM

That cat is "special." And darling. I just want to squish it in my arms!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:12 AM

Hahaha the look at the end is the best part! I absolutely adore this kitty... so fat and squishy... However I do hope the camera man stopped filming at the end in order to take the box off his/her head - doesn't seem like he/she would be able to breathe in there.

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:14 AM

I love this cat and he were mine I would TOTALLy be a box enabler.
ps for the nuffs who seem to be lurking about the edges of the posts - shall I start making pudding now or are we all going to play nice?

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:23 AM

Jo: I'm going to be laughing about your comment all day!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:50 AM

Poke holes in the bottom -- kitty can't breath dude!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 08:58 AM

Things Cats Are:
-- adorable
-- fuzzy
-- often hilarious

Things Cats Are Not:
-- masters of critical thinking

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 09:01 AM

I would say to those worrying about the lack of holes in boxes etc. etc. "no Sh*t Sherlock" the owners probably aren't as dumb as you think they are.

there.. that was my nuff, lol.

and this kitty is soooo silly and fluffy and quite the comedian!

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 09:06 AM

object lesson in learning to live with our foibles

(and why it's so bleening funny)

 |  Nov 02, 2008 at 09:07 AM

Yeah, that plastic box is way too small, there's no way he can fit............OMG!!!

That has to be the funniest thing I've ever seen on C.O.!! *still wiping eyes*
