I was reading my friend Skeezix's blog about cats who like boxes, and I realized that I have never really given boxes a chance. So I looked around our apartment and I couldn't find one. First, I tried to go in my room.
My room is right next to my Person's room. Since she knows I like to lay on top of things, she puts the things she puts on her feets in there. Some of them are clacky and pointy and I do not lay on top of those, but a lot of them are flat and made of cloth, so I do like to lay on those. My room also has some things hanging in it, like my Person's things that she wears, and many of them have evil vishus ribbons or strings that hang down, so I fight them when I am in my room.
But even though I really like my room, it is not the same as a box. So I left my room to look for one.
I couldn't find one for a long time. But then, yesterday, like magic, ONE APPEARED!!

I went to check it out immediately. First, I crawled inside and pawed at the paper that it came with. It is very important to throw out some of the paper (you can see here the paper that I kicked out of the box - it is under my very big front feets), and to make sure that the paper left inside the box is comfortable and willing to meet your demands.

After I cleaned out the paper, I went inside, flopped on my side, and took a bath. Because for me, being comfortable enough to take a bath is a very key thing.

As I am sure other cats will agree, the fact that I was able to take a bath inside the box was a very good indication that it was the box for me. Only one test remained -- would I be able to NAP??


Now, in his entry about boxes, Skeezix posted a link to a page that gives very detailed instructions on how to turn a box into a cat car. I have bookmarked it and I hope that my Person will find it, because it would be sweet to have a car so I could cruise around and pick up the ladies.

Now I have to go lay in my box. I think that might help my Person find the link, too.

Kismet said...

There is definitely enough room for a lady friend! Now I just have to find one. Don't tell her I said so, but Mona wouldn't fit in here because she is pretty fat.

Kismet said...

I'm not sure what kind of car I would want, Sanjee. I've never even seen a car in real life! Something manly. Maybe a rapper car, like an Escalade!

Kismet said...

I don't have any popcorn in mine, ML. But that sounds like fun! I just have the paper.

we hope she'll bring another one home soon and keep cocoa out in the yard while we explore it!

Oh I looooove boxes. There is one on our sun porch that never leaves (the Chip Man is attached or something). Anyway, it has styro-foam peanuts and I pluck them out to play with. I'm not always allowed on teh sun porch so its a big treat.

I'm glad you're enjoying the box!

Kismet, we like boxes too, but Dad always flattens them to take for something called recycling. We're gonna have to have Mom make us a car that we can keep.
