Daily Photo: Box Inspection, Alternate Method

black cat in box
Box inspection by Jelly Bean.

Jelly Bean demonstrates the technique: Sit in box, take nap. If something in the box awakens you, the box is not fit for shipping. If not, the box is good for napping, which doesn’t mean it’s not good for shipping, but it’s not advisable, especially when a cat is in the box. Leave some cat hairs behind for the recipient, the same as the awake/manual version of box inspection.

My cats may not have a whole lot of fun cat furniture, but they certainly have an interesting and constantly evolving environment, with new boxes every day, both open and closed, and stacked in interesting ways.

    I don’t know if I buy the “napping” thing… when Angus and Donal (the older brothers) look like that they are actually plotting the overthrow of the world (or at least the snatching of edibles, swatting of unsuspecting other cats, etc.).

      I would say that of Giuseppe and Sunshine, but when Bean wants to overthrow the world, we all know because he tortures everyone.
