International Box Day

Today is International Box Day on the Cat Blogosphere!

We've never met a cat who didn't love boxes. After all, boxes are great for scratching, jumping on, and hiding in. And as our very own sweet Sammy (a PAWS graduate) demonstrates here ... boxes are also great for sleeping in. :)




Sammy: Um, can you put away the camera, Dad? I'm trying to sleep here...

Happy International Box Day, everybody! :)

When I was young I used to get dragged around the house in a cardboard carton, but I haven't done that for ages - maybe a good idea to try again? It looks like fun in your post.

That's very true and counts for all cats in the world ! If a cat has the choice between a carton box or a basket they always choose the carton, even they have to squeeze themselves into it, it's so funny !
