International Box Day



We received the official notice last week:

MAGGY (Zoolatry) & ROMEO (Peggy's Place)
officially declare
Friday, June 19, 2009
INTERNATIONAL BOX DAY

It is common knowledge that "cats in boxes" go together,
like cookies & cream, nip & tini, soft purrs & belly-rubs!

So we are announcing our
International Box Day Challenge.

Visiting many of your blogs over the last year or more,
we've seen dozens-plus great photos of "cats in boxes"...
you know you have them, in your archives.

So, take our challenge, and on June 19, 2009
let's all post (or re-post)
all the cats in boxes photos we can.
No prizes, no awards, just a box full 'o fun!


Oh, rats, we can't participate, since Jan claims there are no photos of any of us in boxes. We did find a couple with a cat in a dishpan but none in a box.

A sad day. We feel left out.




But wait! Wait! Hold everything! We found one! We found one! Quick, let's post it!


Our own Crystal rubbing his scent on a box. Doesn't matter the box isn't empty. He's claiming it for his own. At least for the moment!

Sigh. Saved by a box. Thanks, Crystal.

And by the way, have you visited the Daily Tripod blog yet? Then stop by. Both of the tripods, rescue kitties, are missing their right rear leg. The photos are great.

  27. I can't believe we missed out on this whole cat-in-a-box thing. If I were a real cat, instead of an honorary kitty-cat, I'd love to get boxy!
