Daily Photo Reprise: No Box Too Small, 2011

If you look really closely in the lower right under Jelly Bean’s shoulder, you’ll see a tiny little bit of a small flat box. This is all it takes for one or more kitties to curl up in a spot on the floor.

I wondered why this spot was chosen for communal bathing and napping, considering it’s right in the narrow spot between cabinet and shelves in the kitchen where I either go out the back door or down the basement steps. It wasn’t sunny and warm, there was no warm spot there, I could find no reason for this until JB curled a little closer to Mewsette and realized it was the little flat box left over from a half-case of 3 oz. cat food cans, sized something like 10″ x 12″ x 1″ deep. Not either one of them alone would fit there, but that’s nothing to worry about.

    • Yes, Cat, circles and heart shapes, they make each other complete!

  • I love how the Fantastic Four still cuddle together. My kittens used to do that when they were still here, but my adult cats don’t. They each stake out a separate corner of my bed and that’s as close as they get to a cuddle pile!

    • Vicki, until they were seniors, all my others tended to keep a safe distance. And I’ve even seen littermates who didn’t particularly care for each other. These four are truly amazing, including their mom.
