Boxes to Box?

During the Lunar New Year, EJ was given a box of mandarin oranges.

Before discarding the box, EJ decided to let the cats enjoy it.

The cats jumped in when only the cover was placed.

Tortie quickly claimed the cover while Tanya sat on the bottom piece of the box. Tommy could not make up his mind which box to jump in.

Even Kenggy explored - slowly.

Pebble, too, came and sniffed at both boxes.

And finally, Tommy got his chance in the box.
The boxes, both top and bottom, have since been thrown away as it was much abused and almost shredded to pieces.

Boxes attract cats because they are
curious creatures. Very cute pictures
with the cats playing switcheroo!

Cats do love boxes of any size! Also sacks. They seem to think any small space is designed just for them.

ABBY said...

That was so sweet. We loved how each of them took turns checking out every aspect of those boxes ... cats are so curious.

Abby has to be the first to check out any box that comes into the house.

I think the boxes call out to the kitties like a siren. the other day I bought a mini home theatre system for my mum's birthday, and while unpacking and setting it up for her in her room, blackie jumped into one of the boxes and settled in nicely.
