Monday Musings - Lovin' The Boxes

This is Faith, one of my very spoiled cats. They have two cat trees, a window seat, toys . . . and what do they choose to cuddle up in and play with when given half a chance? Boxes. When we first moved here there were a ton of them for them to choose from, and they still try to cram themselves in boxes way too small for themselves.

I don't know whether it's the cuddly spaces, the way they feel safe inside . . . something special about cardboard, (lol), but I do know they love them. They don't ignore the trees, but when the chance comes around for a little box love, they both run to it.


Maybe it's a longing for simple pleasures. I know I can relate to that. I know a lot of the things that make me happy are simple as well. Though I have to admit to being almost as happy as my cats when the book boxes arrive. :o)

What are some of the simple pleasures you're thankful for today?

My cats love boxes too, and they lay in them... before they chew of pieces of the box and spit them onto the floor.

My cats have never tried to eat the box itself. They do try to eat the packing tape though. It grosses me out. I can't understand why they find that appealing.

Your cats are too cute! :) Mine love boxes too and I have one that chews up the box (and spits out the pieces) and a couple that also chew on the packing tape. It makes my skin crawl...ick. Cats, gotta love 'em! :)

I'll have to share pics of them on the cat trees -- they do enjoy that at well -- but there is just something about a box. We wised up and the new cat tree has boxes as part of it. I think it makes them feel secure. I don't get the tape thing at all though. You're right though, I do love them! :o)
