Cats in boxes?

Rumor has it that today is International Box Day.
What self-respecting cat passes this up, we ask you?
Here, Maxwell demonstrates the art of sitting on a flimsy box.

Maxwell: Take my paw if it collapses, and I'll pull you to safety.
Faraday
: You sure about that?
Allie: I ...I...can't look...

Allie and Faraday are brave, indeed, wouldn't you say? Although, Allie does look as if she's a bit...concerned....

Allie: If you fall on me, Maxie, be prepared to PAY.

  12. We had "Somecat" crash from sitting at the top of a very flimsy box. Needless to say, all hell broke loose as all the cats from all over the house ran in all directions like their fluffed up tails were on fire.

    Though we have a feeling we'll much rather have our tails on fire (figuratively speaking, of course) than to meet Allie's wrath. ;)

  15. Wow that box is a very nice box, but we noticed that a Sleepypod came in it. We think we would rather have the Sleepypod than the box. Hope nobody got hurt during the balancing act on this flimsy box. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  16. Hmmm, so you’re telling me Sleepypods come in flimsy boxes? I may have to cross them off my “must-have” list. Better not fall on Allie cos she’s a black belt.

    1. Oh no, CK! The flimsy box came inside a VERY sturdy box. We'd definitely keep the Sleepypod on your "must-have" list. For realz.

  24. Allie, you've very brave to sit beneath Maxwell with that not-so-sturdy box.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Uh, guys??? You're supposed to play and hide in the SLEEPYPOD! Not the Sleepypod BOX.

  26. That box looks extra exciting -- the tenuous nature makes it more of an adventure, no? :)
