Cats and boxes

What is it with cats and boxes?

Whenever we have a box in the house, one or other or both of the cats just has to climb in it or on it.  It  doesn't matter if said box is empty or full, they seem to have this compulsion they cannot help. This extends to the laundry baskets, washing baskets, collapsible crates, chicken carriers,  anything in fact.   We indulge our cats (probably too much), so if they happen to take a particular liking to a particular box, we keep it around for a bit.

Our coffee machine came back from being repaired in a big box, and the cats spent ages lolling about on it.

Here's Izzy taking her turn..

The box has some shredded carboard packaging in, and we're amazed it holds Izzy's (not inconsiderable) weight.

It's gone from the kitchen now as we didn't think it would hold out much longer.

  1. Such cute photos! I don't know why when I have to take something away from Morgan I feel guilty. Maybe because I feel she laid claim to "it" and I'm stealing away her stuff?
