The box

thebox.jpgThe UPS man dropped off a box yesterday, nothing for me – darn, but for my husband.

He unpacked it, put it on the floor and the kitties have been playing in it ever since.

It just made me laugh when I thought…we go out and spend money on some fancy kitty scratching post – 3 tiers high, the bottom has a hole that they can run in and out of, there’s a rope they can bat around – the whole nine yards…

but they want to play in the shipping box.

Good grief.

    I love the pictures, Holly. But stop and think, with mine, it doesn’t have to be an expensive box (remember, you had to pay for what was in it, plus postage!); an ordinary paper grocery sack is a winner at my house. You also get the crunchy noise sound when one is in the bag and the other pounces on it.

    Hi Holly,
    Catching up on my blog reading…
    Your fur babies are soooo cute! We have one tuxedo cat, Merlin & he loves jumping in boxes & pouncing on plastic bags. He pretty much ignores the little balls & other toys we buy him too! Go figure.
    I also love, love, love your pocket pies! I just called my local Williams Sonoma store & they have it in stock so I’m running down there today to get one! They should pay you a commission for sharing this with us..your pies look sooo yummy!
    Ok, off to WS I go…have a great weekend!
    Take care, Vina

    Giggle… my cat was the same way! I bought her a big scratching post/house, it was the shape of a castle, and she only used it a couple of times. She LOVED boxes, paper bags and tissue paper!

    Anyways, great photos Holly! Nice to see that your four-legged babies are looking so well… such cuties!

    I am chuckling. We buy our little Maggie Mae all kinds of cool toys and you know what she has the most fun with – A hoppy toad that she found by the tree in the back yard. Go figure.

    The kittens are gorgeous.

    LOL, this reminds me of that MasterCard commercial: playpen: $120, building blocks: $60, enjoying playing with the box instead: priceless, LOL! How cool that you were able to capture that sweet moment ‘on film’.
