The day after Christmas is a holiday celebrated in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and other Commonwealth countries. It is known as Boxing Day. It is also the Feast Day of St. Stephen and originated as a day for giving alms to the poor and gifts to tradespeople.
But for kitties, in every country, it is a day to plop their fuzzy butts in boxes, usually those of the cardboard variety. As we don’t post on Mondays, we missed sharing some boxing photos on the official Boxing Day. But Kitties Blue do enjoy celebrating this holiday as much as the next cat. This year Giulietta is representing for us.
The final photo shows how Giulietta spent all of Christmas day.
Though we’ve been a bit wordy, we are participating in these Wordless Wednesday blog hops.
We also are joining a special tribute to and blog hop for woofie Easy Weimaraner.
Easy, unexpectedly and tragically, flew off to the bridge just before Fiona and our dearest friend Sammy. It has taken several weeks, but Easy is finally back home with his mom and dad. Today has been selected to remember him with a blog hop. It is being hosted by Dory’s Backyard. If you wish to participate, you can link a special “Lighting the Way” blog to honor Easy.
And do not forget to visit Easy’s blog after joining the hop. If you haven’t met Da Phenny (3.5-month-old Weimaraner), you are in for some hearty laughter.
We will be back tomorrow with a “C” poem for Sammy’s Throughly Poetic Thursday.
We love that Boxing Day!! though Minko is far more a box lover than any other kitty that has evfur graced this furmily…can’t find him?? Look in a box, MOL!
the feline workd knows how to celebrate boxing day :o)
thanks so much for the candle of love… it was a year full of tears for so many furmilies…. hugs to all who miss a beloved one…
This is always how I pictured celebrating Boxing Day! LOL! We are also lighting the way for our pal Easy. ♥
Ha ha ha! BOXING day indeed! Boxes are the best
We were happy to see that Easy’s People have decided to share their awesome home and love with a puppy–we are sure Easy taught his pawrents many many lessons they can put to good use now . . . but Da Phenny may have a few tricks in his own paws too 😉
Hope you had a cozy and warm Christmas weekend and are looking forward to a bright New Year.
Guillietta really knows how to celebrate! I love those photos. She is such a cutie pie. My kitties love the boxes that came with their gifts too. 🙂 I know that this was a really hard year, but I hope you all were able to have a merry Christmas.
I never thought about boxing day in just this way. But you’re right: It is a holiday made just for cats. And Fergus does love a good box. I’ll have to remember for next year!
And I’ll be sure to hop over to remember that sweet woofie. It seems like we’ve lost far too many friends this year.

The best way to spend day after Christmas.
Every day is good for boxing! We sure miss that fun Easy boy.
Is there a better holiday than Box Day? It’s MADE just for kitties, right?????
We’re lighting a candle for Easy today too and for all who have made their journey to the Bridge this year.

Giulietta understands the true meaning of Boxing Day. Cats are so smart. And beautiful.

Obviously boxes are just the most comfortable things in the whole wide world. Clearly. We got little Gabbers a box for Christmas and it is her new favorite thing. Wondering if I can pad it and make it a bed, or if I should just leave it how it is?
Giuletta you sure know how to mak a box look good! We missed the message about this special day for Easy but so happy to s e so many joining
Looks like you had a wonderful Pawliday!

Way to represent for Boxing Day, Giulietta! What a great way to spend your Christmas. 🙂
Great box photos, we love Boxing Day as much as Christmas.
“if it fits, you sit!!” xoxo
We think Giulietta is celebrating Box Day the way it should be! Every day is Box Day for us cats. 🙂
Oh, what a purrfect box model you are, Giulietta! The kitties around here love boxes something fierce, too. But, they don’t think this human leaves enough boxes out for them to enjoy. (What the kitties won’t tell you, though, is that last time a box was left out for their enjoyment, somebuddy peed in it!)
And we are certainly keeping Easy’s family in our thoughts today, as well as you, and Sammy’s family.
Giulietta found a perfect box…..snug but not too snug…..and I think napping in it all day was a grand say to spend Boxing Day! We were happy to pawticipte in Easy’s tribute posting day too – so many of us including YOU had a difficult Christmas this year with our loved babies gone. Here’s to a BETTER 2017 for Easy’s family and ALL of us.
We love to find a box to jump in and out of!!
It looks like you had a great Boxing Day, Giulietta!
We luv boxes too!
Boxes are the best. We see that you enjoyed yours!
Looks like Giulietta has her priorities straight 😉
