International Box Day


Can you believe that Mom does not have a single picture of me in a cardboard box? I feel slighted!

However I do like to get into box-shaped things. Both of the next two pictures were taken on the deck a few years ago (Mom knows that because they were with our "other" digital camera). Dad wanted to give me some real grass to chew on so he used a washed out litter box as a planter for me and grew me a small lawn. I used to climb in there to take naps sometimes!

Also, one time they brought a laundry basket with one of my blankies in it out onto the deck and I enjoyed lying in it too.



Yesterday, Mom got out a box and tried to entice us both into it by throwing toys into it.   You can see how well THAT worked!



FINALLY Mom got me to put my front feet in it.

  2. You are still looking adorable...in or out of boxes. We love the picture of you in the basket. Hugs and nose kisses

  3. Somehow, when the humans try to MAKE us kitties go into the boxes, it becomes not so fun.

  4. Simba, I think you like the plastic one, I guess more durable for 007 : )
