Yippee! Today is one of our favorite days of the year. Although, any day with a box in it, is a favorite for us and most kitties. They’re great to sleep in, play in, nibble on and shred. We don’t have any decent, empty boxes around right now. Our humans recycle and the present delivery man hasn’t stopped by in a while. So Mom is repurposing some photos from the past by putting them in a collage.

Only four of us made it into today’s post. Lily Olivia and Astrid, our two box-obsessed sisfurs, got two photos each.

We are joining our friends and hosts, Peaches and Paprika and Luke from Wag ‘n Woof Pets in celebrating today.



We also ar joining up with Magellan and Tsunami at Create with Joy for their Friendship Friday Blog Hop. We can’t think of anything more friendly than sharing a box.


boxPlease join Kitties Blue tomorrow as we celebrate Calista Jo’s third birthday. There will be some BlogPaws loot up for grabs for those who leave a comment.


Cat4-001And our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop will be a special Father’s Day edition. Please take the opportunity to ask your dad to share your selfie or post one of him alone. We know some of our friends don’t have dads, so this is NOT a requirement to participate.

Happy International Box Day!

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


Image 4Lily Olivia immediately and eagerly stepped up to this box today. She dove right in before any other kitty even knew I had opened it. She spun and rolled and tried to catch her tail prior to settling down for a nice nap.

Calista Jo showed up looking for a turn, but Lily refused to look at her or relinquish her prized possession.

Astrid was a little more fortunate and managed to get her turn exploring.

Mauricio got in on the activity at the end as he needed a photo of himself in a box for Cat Scouts.

Friday is Calista Jo’s second birthday, and we will be having a pawty. All kitties, woofies, piggies, buns and any other critters inhabiting blog world are invited and welcome to attend. Hope to see you then.

We are participating in Sparkle the Designer Cat’s International Box Day Link Up. 

P.S. To all of those who are worried about Lily Olivia after my post about her grumpiness: I appreciate your suggestions of a visit to the vet. Lily Olivia had her annual check up in April. Other than her age-related (15 years) slight heart murmur, she is healthy. She has always been a grump and her personality can turn in the blink of an eye. As you can see from these photos she can be a happy girl as well. Thank you so much for your concern.

NOTE: Thanks to Ann of Zoolarty for the excellent International Box Day badge.
