Empty Box Bureau

Taylor: Hey, where did everybody go?

Rusty:  They're all watching Jan tearing the house apart.

Taylor:  But where will we live if she tears the house up?

Rusty:  It's an expression.  It means she makes an unbelievable mess through the whole house as she digs and discards and weeds out things she doesn't use.

Taylor:  Digs and weeds?  Is she planting grass in here too?

Rusty:  No.  Look, remember Sunday she decided to get out her summer clothes and put away her winter ones?

Taylor:  Yes, she moved things off the cedar chest on Sunday and hasn't even opened it yet to begin the transfer.  The house is in chaos.

Rusty:  That's how Jan digs and weeds her way through what should be a simple project.  Move A, wash B, bag C to give away, empty box and toss in trash, and -

Taylor:  Trash an empty box?  We're cats.  Isn't there a law against trashing boxes?

Rusty:   Yes, the EBB - I'm sorry, the Empty Box Bureau could fine her if we file a complaint, but we never do because if Jan pays the fine, she can't afford to feed us.  So we suffer in silence with a full tummy.

Taylor:  Oh, I didn't realize I'm suffering.

Rusty:  Don't worry.  You'll get used to it. Meanwhile, I'd advise you to follow my lead and avoid Jan until her she collapses from this chaotic streak.

Taylor:  Thanks, Rusty.  I guess I'll pass some time watching funny videos.

Rusty:  I have just the one for you.  Let's watch this doxie try to take a carrot through a doggy door.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

    Sadly the video is not available in this country - I would have liked to have watch that caper!!! As for the deconstruction decluttering thingo - over here we call that "spring cleaning" - though why springs require cleaning is anyone's guess... hgus wags whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  2. OMD OMC the Dreaded Changing of the Seasonal Clothing thingy... Butt SURELY Miss Jan WONT trash a pawfectly good BOX!!!!! THAT would be Criminal.

    Loved the Video... We dachshunds DO love us a good carrot. BUTT pawfer Shorter ones.

  3. Aww, that doggie is so cute with his carrot!

  4. Mom gets in those throwing away moods. Just hide your stuff and don't get in her way

  5. You all better make sure your toys are all put away. You never know what those Mamas will throw away!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  6. We are glad Jan isn't tearing the house down!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  7. We have never seen a cat suffer in SILENCE...not one.

  8. OH, I wish you guys would make a video of Jan doing her changeover from winter to spring. Mama does the same thing and it's chaos. Maybe they should buddy each other. OOPS, I mean help each other, Buddy.
    But you can Buddy JAN!!!

  9. We keep the same clothes all year since it doesn't get very cold here and Mom refuses to wear shorts. BOL! I love the Doxie and the carrot!

  10. guys.....hang on two that box.... coz box day iz rite round de korner !~~~ ♥♥♥

  11. Y'all or so funny - as usual!!! Loved the video!!

  12. I plan to start sorting my closet, tomorrow... am NOT looking forward to that chore.

  13. We think that humans should never throw out any boxes. That's just wrong.

    Our humans do a purge every time they are posted. Lots of clothes get donated every time we move.

  14. That sounds like fun, I love decluttering.

  15. We try to claim all empty boxes before it's too late! Oh, that poor woofie needs a wider door!

  16. TBT tears the place up when he cleans, too. He says it is easier ta just pile up stuff from the floor to vacuum and then put things back where they should be. Sometimes he puts our floor toys is differnt places and that is fun.

  17. Geez, our mom bean does the furry same thing. She talks about downsizing and clearing things out but then there a piles and bags and stuff all over the place. We're okay with the piles of clothes 'cuz that means extra beds for us, MOL

    Hope you find an empty box or two that Jan missed!
    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  18. We see the peeps get 'cleanupitis' here sometimes, too...usually when things get so covered in papers and junk that it begs to be done...and yup that changing of the seasons brings lots of shuffling in the closet here too. Why don't they just get a closet for each kind of clothing needs?

  19. hello funny farmers its dennis the vizsla dog hay dada sez the stooges and there too by fours hav nuthing on that dachshund and with the carrot!!! i hav no ideea wot he is tawking abowt as yoozhual!!! ok bye
