International Box Day

Today is one of my favorite days - International Box Day!


All of us Monkeys enjoy boxes, but I am definitely the one who loves them the most.  A new box can last months for me, and then when I tire of it, I pee in it so that I can move on to the next one.  It's just my way of letting Mommy know that I want a new one.  It's a very effective method because the peed in box is removed right away.  The problem is that Mommy is a bit of a slacker and there's not always a new box at the ready. 
Mommy thinks the reason I like to pee in them is because when I was rescued from outside as a small kitten, I was rescued by a woman who had no experience with cats and she used to put newspapers in a box for us to pee in.  Old habits die hard!

Currently I am using this square box.  It's nice and compact and hugs my body perfectly.  It'll be a long time before I pee in this one!


I've been a fan of boxes since infancy.  This is an old photo of me enjoying a box as a kitten.  I was a lot slimmer then and could fit in almost any box.


Deli loves boxes too, except she prefers to sit on them.  Personally I think she's missing out on the true box experience, but she's too stubborn to listen to me.


There is no greater pleasure than a nice snooze in a perfect box!

I don't know about peeing in the box when you are done, though. Does mommy approve? What a sweet baby you were!

I love napping in boxes too. And taking baths in them.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Samson that would make "purrfect" sense that you would pee in a box since the woman who first had you wanted you to pee in the box. It is also a genius idea to keep getting new boxes as you found out!

Trust Deli to find a box that says cuties. We already knew she was cute. You were very cute too in the Dr.Pepper box.
