Cats have been trying to shove themselves into boxes two sizes too small even before YouTube and filming your pet’s every waking moment became a thing. Maru, Japan’s most popular and arguably cutest cat, has made a name for himself by adopting the “If it fits, I sits” philosophy. His latest video, titled “-Plastic box and Maru.-” offers us a clear view of exactly how this sleepy Scottish Fold crams himself into the tiniest of spaces.
The video is seemingly as straightforward as the title – it’s just a bunch of shots of Maru hanging out in a clear plastic box. The little kitty isn’t even awake for most of the filming, but that just adds to the cuteness factor:
▼ Awake but not having any of it.
▼ Completely out.
▼ Still out.
It’s amazing how every bit of available space is taken up by one of Maru’s white paws or his fluffy belly. But if you’re still thinking this is just a cat video, think again. As YouTube user, mcrazza, points out, we could all stand to be a little more like this adorable cat: “If you put Maru into a box, it becomes the box. Be Maru, my friend.”
