The videos are uploaded by his owner and feature Maru playing with a variety of different toys. His adventures include playing with string, climbing frames, cuddly toys and boxes. Maru gained a new friend in 2013, when a kitten called Hana was introduced to the family.
It’s fair to say that Maru has secured himself among the many other purring greats on the internet, alongside other felines such as Keyboard Cat and Grumpy Cat.
4. – Zoey and Marley – CTFxC
Zoey and Marley regularly appear on Charles Trippy’s Internet Killed Television vlogs, which he has been uploading every day for over 6 years.
The older of the cheeky pair, Zoey, was born in December 2005 and was eventually joined by Marley, who was born in September 2007.
The dogs have proven so popular with CTFxC viewers that Charles released Zoey and Marley plushies that can be bought online. Just a quick search of the two pups brings up hundreds of gifs and images on Tumblr.
Both dogs have their own Twitter accounts, too. Madness!
5. Grumpy Cat
Grumpy Cat (real name Tardar Sauce) was first introduced to the internet back in 2012 when she was only five months old and it was love at first sight.
The cat’s trademark miserable face led to widespread internet fame for the feline and the original Grumpy Cat video now boasts over 18 million views. There’s plenty of videos on the Grumpy Cat YouTube channel for anyone who can’t get enough of Tardar Sauce’s antics.
Our fluffy friend even has her own movie called ‘Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever’ which was released in November last year.
