  1. So how is Maru’s book? I don’t know if still photos can capture him as well as video.

    • I enjoyed Maru’s book very much! I can’t compare it to the video, though, since I have yet to see live-action Maru. He is quite adorable even in stillness!

      • GASP!

        You have not lived till you’ve seen Maru in action. It’s how he became famous.

        • LT, I finally watched Maru on Youtube and oh my gosh I now know what I was missing! The cuteness is incredible!

        • YAY!

          Mr. LT couldn’t believe you hadn’t seen him either. He got the book deal b/c of his videos. The sliding through boxes, particularly. He even got in a kitty litter ad in the US.
