International Box Day

We were excited when we heard that Zoolatry were having International Box Day today cuz we both like boxes, duzn't everycat? We helped mum find all the photos on all her files so she could get our post ready in plenty of time. Then it nearly didn't happen when the compooter died, but mum looked through all her back up flash drives and we got the photos onto the laptop instead.
We've got a tattle tail about mum and the laptop before you look at our box photos. Mum usually uses the laptop on the sofa or at the table but because the PC isn't working, she put it on the compooter desk. She went to print something this morning and we heard her yell 'I DON'T BELIEVE IT!! NOW THE LAPTOP WON'T WORK!' Do you know what silly mum did? She pulled out the shelf with the PC keyboard and was typing on there, then she wondered why no words were coming up on the laptop. You would think she would learn after the first time wouldn't you, but oh no, she did it time and time again.
Anyway, that's enough of that. Here are our box pictures.


Flynn: Not long after we started blogging, Grr, Midnight and Cocoa had a competition and we won. Part of our purrize was this great box with shreddy paper in.

I love this box and I could smell my girlcat furrend Grr in it. It made the bestest bed.
I have even still got it now. When I sleep in it I dream of Grr.

Eric: I wanted to see what was so great about the box so I thought I would try it. I think it is a bit small for me.

Flynn: This is another good box but I don't have it any more.

It was very comfy though.

Eric: I seem to have a problem finding a box to fit me.

They all seem to have shrunk.

No, no success with this one either.

At last! A box I can move around in!

And another one. What do you mean, it's not a box? It's lovely and comfy with the washing in the bottom. If I close my eyes I can purrtend it is a box.

When I was younger and smaller I used to fit in all sorts of boxes.

Flynn: Bet you wouldn't fit in this box then.

This is a nice big box. It's where our Christmas tree lives when it's not Christmas.

Eric: You're right! It's big enough for two.

You boys look great in your boxes! Our Mom particularly liked the beer box (we have one in our post for tomorrow too)!

Those are great photos of you in boxes! Shredded paper that smells like a girl cat! Hmmm! So cute!

Luna ( from Brazil ) said...

Dear Eric,
I'm sorry to learn that these days you are having troubles to fit your tummy in those tight boxes!
In my opinion these boxes are too small!
I loved all pictures and your mommy did a fabulous work with these pictures!
I hope your mommy will have more luck with computers now! Perhaps you could share some catnip with her to calm things down!
purrs and love
Luna

WOWSIE! What fantastic box pishures. Isn't it strange that boxes shrink? We've noticed that too - some of our favourite boxes shrank so much we couldn't get in them any more!

Have a great IBD!

Milo and Alfie said...

PS: We larfed at your Mombean. Nuts or what?

Slash and Bronzy said...

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Boy, you certainly have had your fair share of box fun! We love the one of you in the Guinness box with your tail sticking out the other end!

LOL at your Mom! Mom nearly spit coffee on the monitor because while she was loading everything onto the new hard drive on her business computer last month, she still had to akshully work and so she had her laptop on the "L" of her desk... she turned to type on the keyboard and grabbed the mouse several times to use her laptop! Too funny!

Parker said...

I think some of those boxes may have shrunk if you can't fit in them anymore!

CCL Wendy said...

It's great that you two finally found a box big enough for both of you! Too bad Christmas only comes once a year, but then so does Box Day!

Eric, did the box shrink or did you get bigger? Only asking, dear!

It's so much fun to see you two in your boxes. Your Mom did a good recovery job. Sorry Eric that you had a hard time finding a box that would fit you. That Christmas tree box sure did the trick for both of you to get into.
