Packing Fun?

I have noticed on several blogs that when a package comes in, the kitties like not only the box, but the packing paper that came in it. Most of our packages come with air pillows, not packing paper. But recently, we did get a box with a long strip of packing paper! So I thought I'd see if my kitties enjoyed it like everyone else's seem to.

We laid it out on the floor and waited for somecat to notice.

It didn't take long before Leo was on the scene!

Leo: Hey, what is this stuff? It crinkles when I touch it!

Leo: And it is kinda cave-like, a little bit on this side. Cool.
Glitter: Oh yeah? Well give me a turn.

Leo: Sure. I wanted a drink anyway.
Glitter: Definitely crinkles! Even when my tail brushes it. Not sure what else to do with it though..

It was a while before Cashmere discovered it. We were sure our box crunching, tape tugging, paper shredding girl would be much more enthusiastic!

Cashmere: Hey, when did this stuff show up?
Glitter: Earlier, when you were napping. It's ok, but it wasn't worth waking you up for.

Cashmere: Oh, and a box too?! You know I love cardboard!
Glitter: *laplaplap* That wasn't there then. I think daddy put it there 'cause it was in his way.

Cashmere: Oh, hi mom. Uh, I'm not ripping up the box, honest!
Glitter: Yet, *laplaplap*
Cashmere: Hush up, sis...

Cashmere: Let me look at this paper stuff again.. It's not bad.. Doesn't shred a easily as envelopes and bills and important papers.. Worth a little digging though.
Glitter: You're the connoisseur..

Glitter: So, what's the verdict?
Cashmere: *looking at her daddy* So, what else ya got?
Well, I guess my kitties aren't into packing paper. Guess it's a good thing we don't get much of it!

We love jumping on crinkly paper and sliding across the floor on it too.

I never seemed to get into it at all. I thought I was the only kitty! I love grocery receipts though. I run with them and then after tossing them around, I ded them good! Did Ded DED! IN my water dishes usually. xoxo Leo...hubba HUBBA!

Mudpie gives packing paper four paws WAY up!!! We even spread ours around the living room to make a racetrack for the Mudpie 500 :)

If Angel can chew it, she likes it!

We only get the box. Our humans only give us the box. I guess we are being shortchanged all along.

Carmine loves boxes, but he's indifferent about packing paper. Milita's indifferent about both!

Summer said...

We like packing paper okay, but it's never around here long enough for us to get a real chance to play with it.

The Island Cats said...

We think packing paper is almost as much fun as the box it came in.

Sasha said...

So much fun. I enjoy the wrapping, too.

Raven has never liked that thick brown packing paper. She actually avoids it.
