Pay No Attention to That Cat Inside a Box Seriously, stop it

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


Cats are absolute suckers for boxes. And sinks, and vases, and grocery bags, and shoes, and Pringles cans, and the nooks and crannies between furniture and walls, and  just about any other space they deem cozy, confining, and swaddly . (Cats, in case you were wondering, are a non-Newtonian liquid.) It’s the one thing about which our pointy-eared companions are not terribly picky:  If it fits, they sits . And when they do, we humans can’t help but obsess over them.

Starting off ... off topic ...

My dog, Jack, a 150lb Landseer couldn’t fit into the box the dishwasher came in. He was a wide open spaces guy.

Once had a cat that completely destroyed a Christmas tree bulb by bulb.

We came home to find the tree laying on its side and the cat covered in tinsel.

My feet would stink up some crocs really quickly. I bought a brand of flip flops, Okabashi [made in the US] that boast that they never stink... I've owned several pair and it's true. At $10 a pair, I can't beat them; the last pair I had to throw away because my dog ripped them in half [that was when we first got him]. They generally last several years.

Amen to that. Kitkat sleeps in bed with me and it never fails, he wakes me up at 3am to go out of the room. He has his own litter box, food and water in my room.. I feel the paw on my face and his "yelling" at me to get up anyway.

I think my Palooza has some "ragdoll" in her DNA somewhere (believed to be a mix between a Himalayan and Siamese), because not only is she a big girl, but she is always yelling at us.

If she gets a print out that she does not like she will smack it non-stop as it comes out. If she thinks the coffee maker is growling at her she will smack it until the sound stops. She gives no quarter to any bad behavior from those in her charge. (grin)

Why Do Cats Sit in a Taped Square or Circle?
