Daily Photo: Muffintop Kitty

Something makes me laugh when I see the term “muffintop” referring to a belly flopping over a waistband, usually male. Seeing Bean trying to stuff himself into things that are too small for him produces the same effect and makes me laugh even more.

What’s that you say—get bigger baskets and boxes? But what would I do for entertainment? And it’s not a bad way for them to earn a bit of their dinner, either, if you ask me, considering Bean has had more than his share of dinner at this point.

But if I walk into the kitchen one of these days and Bean is in the salad bowl…

    It’s amazing how comfy Jelly Bean looks stuffed into that little box..How do they do it?? lol

    • Nancy Blue Moon, sometimes it takes quite a bit of shuffling and careful arrangement, and that in itself if pretty funny–why would they want to work so hard for a nap stuffed into a box?
