International Box Day 2017

What do cats and kids love more than toys? What is a cat’s favorite day of the year? Boxes and International Box Day, of course. To celebrate, Mom opened a big box that came for us a few days ago. Sometimes, she really comes through for us! Here’s a few photos from the box opening.


Mau checks out the new box.


C.J., Mau and Cooper Murphy investigate box while Lily looks on.


Toy comes out of box and Mau goes in.


The gang gathers around the box.


C.J. gets her turn in the box.


Misty May: "This box is all mine...finally."


As you can see, it isn’t even necessary to get inside the box to enjoy its presence. The only one of us who didn’t show up for the opening ceremony was Lisbeth.

We wish all of our anipal friends a fun-filled International Box Day!

Now that we have shared our box, we bet you are wondering what came in that box. Well…you’ll just need to visit us again tomorrow for our review of a F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S new toy from jackson Galaxy. You can see a bit of it in the foreground of two of today’s photos.

Until then…

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

Bear Cat doesn’t “do” boxes. I’ve tried EVERYTHING. Bear wouldn’t get into one for love or tasty whole chickens. I like how you all took turns – beautiful shots.

We love boxes too. We’ve heard that some kitties don’t like them but we all love them here! We think we know what is in the box. Does it start with “space” ? Let us know who loves it since our Mama was thinking of getting one for Levon who gets bored easily!
Sending love to your Mom !

I did not realize it was Boxing Day. I have been busy with health appts, new drs, and my cough that will not stop (8 months). I am treading water. Hugs.

We think the box is more fun than the toy that came inside! We love boxes! Happy Box Day!

That box was a hit! My newest box is in the garden protecting the young basil plants from our unrelenting sunshine & heatwave.

We got that same box and threw ours out before doing our post! We KNOW what was in the box because we got a few things too! We are spreading ours out over the next few weeks (I think, beginning in July!) Great stuff!

Mau, you made us smile big time with how happy and proud you look during your sit in that fantastic box. And we can’t wait to see what toy you got. Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy’s faces indicate that it is something quite intriguing! Purrs, and happy Box Day!

An English friend sent a box of goodies for my kitty boys, Andy and Dougy, and this was the result:

Andy and Dougy love, love, love the UPS, FedEx, and USPS delivery people because they bring boxes. No matter what’s inside, they both want to have the empty box.

I think Scout Mau was sitting in that Box considering designs for Cat Scouts 2018 Cardwood Derby! Cooper Murphy was asking Mau what he thinks! “Hmm”, he asks, “Do you think the dimensions are right? We need to thinks ups a great idea! Scout Obi, we love you, but you are Going Down next year!”

Nothing beats a good box.
Boxes are kitty magnets, MOL!
