International Box Day :)

We've never met a cat who didn't like boxes.  Come to think of it, it seems that most animals we've ever met kind of enjoy being in, on and around them.  It's a phenomenon that's been noted by pet bloggers the world over, and today is the day to celebrate the unabashed love that animals have for boxes. :)

Here's Khan (who recently found his very own forever home), getting his last turn in one of the PAWS Meeting Room's favorite boxes:


And our beautiful pal Izzy (still waiting to be adopted), staking her claim to the very same box:


Check out the official International Box Day badge featuring some of our best blogging pals (and our own beloved Moosey!), and created by our awesome friend Ann at Zoolatry:


Happy International Box Day 2014!

Hope that proves to be a "lucky" box for Izzy and that she finds her forever home too.

My Dad's cat who recently passed LOVED boxes. She would sit in them for hours. Growing up we had a kitty that used to love sitting in the cardboard produce boxes, (the ones with the handles like when you buy tomatoes or peaches). She would fir herself in there and you could carry her around. :)

Finally! A holiday that is truly the cat's meow! We declare it should be worthy of a day off!

Boxes definitely deserve a holiday in their honor. There is nothing more comforting than sitting in a nice comfy cardboard box. It's even sweeter when some other kitty is giving you the stink-eye because they want to be the one sitting in that box.

Jans Funny Farm said...

Ooh, boxes. We love boxes. Glad Khan got a forever home. Hope it came with boxes too. :)

Katie Isabella said...

WE sure love them and my mom needs to get me another! xxoo

GLOGIRLY said...

You guys better be careful!
Those look suspiciously similar to the "If it fits, it ships" boxes!!!
