Mr. Nekkid Fridge

Jan glanced at the envelope, noted it wasn't addressed to any of us, and dropped it on the desk, expecting it was for the neighbor with the same house number across the T street. As she did, the strange name hit her. She looked again. It really was addressed to "Mr. Nekkid Cold Box," care of her at this address. "Uh-oh," she thought. "I wonder what Randy thought when he saw this?" (Randy is our regular postman.)

She found out a couple weeks later when she ran into him delivering another envelope to MNCB.

"Have you figured out who Mr. Nekkid Cold Box is yet?" she asked.

Randy raised his arms and exclaimed, "I don't ask any questions!"

"I know, but have you figured it out yet?"

He thought a moment. "No."

"It's my fridge. Some bloggers are dressing my fridge," she explained.

For a moment, he appeared on the edge of suggesting she was a lunatic pulling his leg, but then he shook his head and said, "I never would have guessed that!"

This began when we posted a photo of our fridge for the cold box meme. It was naked. So Auntie Deb and ML sent out an SOS email. We thought they were joking. They weren't.

About that time, Black Cat tagged us for the cold box meme. We were tagged earlier by the Taylor CatSSSSS (and caught with a nude fridge) and then again by Poppy Q, so we did a joke post to spice up MNCB. But this time we're prepared - with a lot of help from the CB.

Since this is our third tag, we won't tag anyone else, but we do want to show you our non-nekkid (dressed) fridge. We waited for all the responses to arrive, and then for Auntie Deb to feel better, and then for one final adornment.

Jan says we are definitely moving some of the valuables to the other side so little whapping paws can't reach them as easily, (HA!) but for easier photographing, we posted the cards on one side and everything else on the front.

Are you ready?

Are you sure you're ready for this?

Okay. Here is Mr. Non Nekkid Cold Box. Please excuse the quality of the photos. We told Jan we should move to a bigger home with better lighting first, but, no, she wouldn't listen. You can click on any picture to enlarge it.

These are the lovely cards.

Bottom row of freezer and fridge. See the bag in the lower left? There were 2 bags. We opened one right away and scattered the toy springs throughout the house. Guess Auntie Deb shouldn't have mentioned her cats like to play with them. Hehehe.

Mr. Nekkid Cold Box was dressed by (in no particular order) --
The Taylor CatSSSS
KC & Missy
Not the Mama
Kelly Cat (and all the Good Cats)
The Cat Realm
Miss Peach
Pearl, Bert & Jake (PB&J)

Thanks to each of you who participated in dressing Mr. Nekkid Cold Box. He certainly does look more cheerful now that he's had a snazzy makeover. And we are too. Jan wouldn't let us dress MNCB until she took the photos because she has some crazy idea we cats would have the decorations scattered in no time. We would never do such a thing! (Hehe. Snort.)

Buddy: Guess I'll just finish this post. All the cats suddenly raced for the kitchen. Uh-oh.

Percy: Cameron and Cotton, you take the freezer door. Crystal and Cyndi, up on the counter. The cards are yours. Rusty, you and I are the best jumpers. We'll take the fridge door.

On the count of Wahooo! Let the whapping begin!

  6. Oh Jan, that's terrific!!! I had no idea the Blogosphere was rallying round to dress your fridge, isn't that just great! :) xxx

    P.S. I watched the video about Ode. What a lovely dog. How could anyone be so cruel! It sickens me that there are such people in the world. I hope she finds a really loving forever home.

  8. Oh yeah, Mr. Cold Box looks much better now! And the best thing about a dressed Cold Box is that you can change his clothes.
    Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

  9. You just reminded me that we were tagged several weeks ago about the refrigerator. I guess I need to remind my mom.

  18. Hooray! No more nekkidness! Those springs are very fun toys.

  19. Wahoo indeed! Now, you need to make it messier. That'll complete the transformation.
