Like many cats on the Internet, Maru, a cat in Japan, has legions of fans. Although Maru doesn’t sport unusual physical appearances like Grumpy Cat, Maru has become an Internet celebrity by loving boxes.
If you watch the above video, you can watch Maru jam into a box and happily slide across the floor with its head stuck inside. Why boxes make this cat so happy might be a mystery, but watching a cat shove its face into a box definitely makes people happy who watch the whole thing.
Given a choice between watching the harsh reality of politics or the happier reality of cats, it’s easy to see why cat videos are far more popular and trustworthy.
