International Box Day


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…

6.18.2016 Intl Box Day BADGE


Today is one of our favorite days of the entire year: International Box Day. That it is on Caturday this year made for a bit of a challenge. As we always pawticipate in Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty’s Caturday Art Blog hop, Mom needed a photo that she could turn into something that didn’t look like a big brown blob. Luckily we got a huge box containing litter yesterday. Dad put it in the foyer and waited for one of us to get in it. Here’s who showed up: The blog hog himself!


Mauricio has claimed the cardboard box for International Box Day.


Two or three of us could have joined Mau, which would have made for a way more interesting photo. But just as Mom feared… she had a brown and boring boxy photo with which to work. So, you know what happened. She threw everything at it and then some. All the edits, including rotating the orientation of the photo, were done using PicMonkey except the last two things—adding the HDR effect and the black border. She used Picasa for those things.


The box in this photo disappears behind the art.

Father’s Day Sunday Selfies

Cat4-001Tomorrow is Father’s Day as well as our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We are thinking that it might be fun to include your dad in your selfie. If you’d like to have the day off from the pressure of taking your own photo, feel free to enter one with just your dad. It’s always impawtant to let your dad know how much you love and appreciate him. We know some of you don’t have dads, but please don’t let that stop you from joining us and hopping.

Until tomorrow…toodles and love to all.

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!
