Box envy

If I have written about this before, excusez-moi, but I have so many posts now and a huge backlog that makes it hard to keep track. It’s still worth it though, so don’t stop reading. As many cat lovers will know, felines have a huge attraction to boxes. On a scale of one to five I would say a good measurement of cat’s interest rate is:

1: New, shiny toy you spent quite some money on
2: Older toy you thought they would never play with again
3: Whatever you’re reading / using that they can lie on
4: Plastic bags and other random trash
5: Cardboard boxes (extra points if they smell and have holes in them).

Point proven on Cute Overload a long time ago:

And now: cardboard theory proven by Arie and Bernard!

Smugness in a box:

O Bernard, I think you’re being watched:

And I now present: a very box-envious Arie:

Give it up Arie, you can never part a cat from his box….

Poor Arie, I will promise to get him a box of his very own one day. For now, he’ll have to settle for number four on the scale: an old plastic bag…

    Spot on analysis, although I’d tend to include autumn leaves and shoelaces (not entirely random trash) as well, somewhere around #3.

    O, the list can and should be expanded for sure! Maybe one day we can compile an epic post on this…
