Desperate Maru: Cat vs. The Ground (VIDEO)

Maru the cat has been charming the pants off the Internet for years now, and his latest video proves that sometimes simplicity is best.

Instead of his usual box-jumping, counter-sliding antics, Maru keeps things casual in this one and just paws at the floor. A lot. Like, to the point that you're kind of bummed for him that he'll never dig the hole he's trying for.

But one thing's for sure: as long as there's a camera and this cat is around, we'll be down to watch him do just about anything.
