It’s International Box Day!

The clever Mr. Sunshine is in two boxes at once!

No wonder everyone was in boxes today! In singles and pairs, all the cats were celebrating International Box Day, perhaps even beginning with Greenwich Mean Time since the celebration began last night.

Above, Mr. Sunshine shows how one cat can be in two boxes at the same time!

Below Giuseppe and Bean show how two cats can fit in one box that’s clearly too small for them.

We can fit in this thing.

Well, they had to let a little bit hang out.

Giuseppe and Bean don't really fit, but they are darned cute doing it.

And then I picked up a box that was empty—or so I thought. I was darned surprised when it looked at me!!

Mewsette dares me to move her box—I almost tossed her outside!

And last night, Mimi and Giuseppe look a little unhappy with their accommodations. A nicer box perhaps? Mimi can be such a princess. And no other species but the cat can look so displeased when doing something they always find fun! And they are having fun, or they wouldn’t stay there! I can’t figure them out sometimes.

Mimi and Giuseppe await the beginning of International Box Day in the United States.

Kelly would not stay in her chosen box, but kept hopping in and hopping out, then decided to inhabit the windowsill upstairs. That was originally planned as today’s photo before International Box Day came up because she’s darned cute!
