It’s International Box Day and Mewsette is moving to a new theme: miniatures. Tired of the big boxes from copy paper and leftovers from Costco, Mewsette has decided to go small and delicate. She’s not certain, but this little one might actually be finished.

Meanwhile, Mimi, the original Queen of the Box and Anything Shaped Like a Box, rolls her eyes at her daughter’s inventiveness. “I’m proud of what my creative daughter has accomplished,” said Mimi, “but what happened to the days when all a cat had to do was sit in a box and that was enough?”

Mimi is doing what most cats do with boxes.
