Yes, you’re right, I don’t know who put it there, believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare.* Sorry, Mr. Hunter, it was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the image above, and then I had to sing it over and over, especially while I was photographing the following sequence.
I’m sure we’ve all seen a similar sight: a box, full of cat, possibly even overflowing with cat. In this case, Bean and the box were perfectly matched as he filled it to capacity with barely a hair showing over the edge. And he was very pleased with himself about this. Well, perhaps the box was just a tad stressed on the sides.
He was about to get a little too full of himself, though, and have a little mishap with the box, nothing serious. But he’s the cute one who sometimes acts out his cuteness by doing something silly and getting into a little mess, like balancing on the edge of a box and calling me until I look at him, and having it flip over on him. His gentle landings are a little staged.
So anyway, Bean decided to be as cute as a kitty in a box could be once he saw that he had my full undivided attention and I was both snapping my black box at him and singing.
It was another soft landing. He was fine.
