Wink Simon's Cat: The Box

Here are the links to Parts one and two of this subject:


Part 2


Part 1

Our younger kitty, Maya, has a box in the living room, which we call her anxiety box. She goes in it (it is now too small for her but she squeezes into it anyway). She waits in it for hubby to return from errands, and she goes to it when it rains and storms,
and for other obscure cat reasons we haven't figured out yet. It is a small Amazon box. We had Amazon lately and they used the next size up for that delivery. So we put it next to the baby box thinking Maya will use it and be more comfortable. But Weezie is now taking it over!

Maya had one in the kitchen but after she "grew up" doesn't use it much. She sits in it when we cook though. She figured out that she is unlikely to get stepped on when in it.

There is a real cat video on YouTube about cats/boxes. Maru is the name of the cat and is quite famous now with his box antics.


about 1/2 way thru this video history there is Maru squeezed into a tiny flat box just like Maya's!

My Mood: Simon's Cat: The Box

How hilarious - thanks mrsD

My two have a box each in the kitchen.

They tend to perch on them, watching the world go by.

Recently they have become very territorial. A harmless neighbourhood cat comes round outside sometimes. When this happens both Blackberry and Waiwaiaa, from the vantage point of their boxes, have fierce and noisy fights with it through the safety of a kitchen window.

The first time this happened I thought that somebody was trying to break in

Peaches and Badcat both love a box - any box, but their favorite is a paper bag. Two local groceries will use nice, paper bags instead of the usual plastic bags if you ask. I always get those special bags and give it to the cats who have a ball.
Enemies ..... Don't see them as bad. See them as broken.
