International Box Day

Today is International Box Day!!!



We've had some boxes around here recently, but none we could let kitties in. So I have some kitty on box pictures!


These are the boxes that the material for Twin 1's bridesmaid dresses came in. You may notice that there is another box on that box and that Cashmere is laying on a plastic bag (that contains ribbons for said dresses). Those are there to keep little Miss Chomps out of the big boxes!

I had SUCH a hard time keeping her from getting in there and chewing on the tulle I was using to poof out the dresses and make crinolines! She was obsessed! So was Glitter, but not as bad.. Even when I was sewing it, I had to make sure none was hanging off the table! And I had to carefully cut out around the holes they chewed in it!

When the boxes were left open, they would flip up the flaps and get in to chew tulle. We put that small heavy box on it to keep the flaps down, she would wedge her face in whatever space there was, grab some tulle, pull it up and chomp and chew until someone caught her! Put the bag over the opening and she laid on it, obviously irritated that she no longer had access to the tulle!

What is all this stuff doing on my chompy box? How am I supposed to get in there now?
 
 

You'd think they didn't trust me or something... I'm hurt.



Just in case that doesn't satisfy the rules for International Box Day, I found this picture of Leo in his first year here. Boxes were Star's favorite thing, but he got a chance once she got out.

Ok, this is gonna be my race car, I'm gonna be Meowio Purrdretti!
VrrrrrrrRRRRRRRRrrrrrroom! I take the checkered flag! Whoo!!! All the cute girl cats are rushing the track to come give me head butts and ear lickies! Yeah!!!
Oh... Hi mom.... what's that? Just sittin' here, that's all... nothing else going on..
 
 
Happy Box Day

Meowio Purrdretti! LOL! You sure know how to have a good time in a box, Leo!

Tulle seems fun. I bet it makes good rustling noises. That's too bad they stopped you from chewing it!

Happy Box Day!

Oh dear, mom wasn't very kind to you was she. She should have let you have it cuz you liked it so mujch. Then she could always go out and buy more if she needed it. Afterall, what is more important, her decorative trim stuff or a kitty's happiness.

Cute photos, that is funny how badly they wanted the tulle- well, I am sure you didn't find it funny at the time.

We can be determined, can't we? Love the race car fantasy! Happy International Box Day!

I have a cute little black dress with tulle that my human got me for my BlogPaws get-together. I can wear it for 20 minutes to half an hour before I start chewing on the tulle, MOL! In fact, I think tulle is way more fun than a box!

What a funny story! (Though your human probably didn't find it as amusing when you were chewing the tulle!)

I can't believe that you are not allowed to chew on the tulle! SOO unfair! At least you are still able to purr-tect them!

meowmeowmans said...

Mom really won't let you chew on the tulle? That is SO unfair!

Happy International Box Day, sweet friends! :)
