International Box Day 2015!

Have you ever noticed how cats, dogs and other animals seem to love boxes?  The phenomenon has long been noted by pet bloggers all over the world, who are coming together today to commemorate International Box Day.  To join in on the fun, we dug out our beloved Angel Sammy's combination box-bed for Moosey, Gracie and Zoe. Here's a flashback (from 2011) of Sammy demonstrating his complete mastery of the head-in-the-corner-of-the-box sleeping technique:
Flash-forward to the present day. Here's sweet Moosey, enjoying some box time. He could definitely smell his angel brother, and he settled right in for some Sammy-style relaxation. :)

Gracie and Zoe never knew Sammy, so they weren't as comfortable about actually laying in the box. They DID sniff and explore it, though. :)

Happy International Box Day, Everybuddy! :)

  8. That's an awesome box! Carmine, too, loves boxes. It's funny though, Milita doesn't really care about boxes and neither did Jewel, so Carmine gets to hog all the boxes around here. :)

  10. Awww... nice to see sweet Sammy again face planting in his box. Kisses to Moosey and the girls.
    Tommie never saw a box he didn't want to sit in- even if it was too small. Mickey Mouser would rather chew on the edges than climb in!
