Thousands are dead and thousands more missing in Japan following last week’s tragic earthquake and resulting tsunami, but America cares about one thing and one thing only – Maru, the Scottish fold.
Maru’s owner responded to hundreds of letters from concerned citizens about the fate of the fat cat who loves a good box or paper bag to hilariously hop into.
The prayers of many were answered with the simple phrase, “Maru is safe.”
I, for one, no longer feel the urgent need to donate to the Red Cross knowing that Japan’s most important resident is alive and well. But I will anyway.
