Maru, The Cat, and The Guinness World Record

Greetings Funny Names Fans!

Have you ever noticed that cat videos pervade the internet?

Back in 2015, shortly after Leonard Nimoy passed, my better half and I discovered Maru, the cat, while eating sushi in a restaurant called Sushi Maru. Ah, the magic of smart phones and google combined to introduce us to the meaning of Maru.

Maru, a Scottish Fold—straight ear variety—entertains nearly half a million followers on YouTube. His channel is named Mugumogu, and is the 7th most subscribed YouTube Channel in Japan.

In 2017 he was awarded the Guinness World Record for the Most Watched Animal on YouTube. A record he broke in 2016. Don’t take my word for it, here’s the video, you can watch for yourself.

He is certainly is the emperor of the box, and a swinging cat to boot.

    Other than this blog, there is no way I
    1) would have watched a cat video
    2) would have known there was a cat named Maru who jumped into boxes and lots of people dig that
