YouTube users are loving internet moggy Maru, a Japanese cat whose latest web antics see him trying out various hairstyles via a nifty box-based contraption.

First up for him is a side-parted look, followed by a pink afro, an orange-hued wavy do and a dark bob summed up by one YouTube viewer as 'hilarious... he looked like a gangster or a pimp of some sort'.

The clip has racked up over 300,000 hits on the video-sharing site since it was posted by Maru's anonymous owner last week. The cat even has its own blog and there's also a book available, entitled I Am Maru.

'How about a Donald Trump comb over??'

'I vote Afro! There's something about bubblegum pink that just brings out the colour in his eyes,' quips another Maru fan.

'The bobbed hair makes him look like Edna Mode from The Incredibles,' muses another astute viewer, who had us scrambling to our photo library to weigh up the assertion...
