Bedroom Box

When our 10 year old washing machine collapsed a few weeks ago, we bought a big cardboard box for the cats... and the shop gave us a washing machine to go with it. At least, that's how Scoop and Au see it.

The cats already have their box on the landing upstairs. Although it's meant for both, Au is the one who spends most time in it. He prefers to walk into a box and close the flap behind him. Scoop will play in it, but usually only when Au is there to join in.

Scoop in the box


Both cats investigated the monster box when it first arrived but the shine went off it some days ago. I was going to move it downstairs and hand it over to the recycling man, but was caught redhanded by Scoop.

When he saw me moving the box downstairs, he blocked the way and scolded me with a loud YOW!! Yik Praw Yow!

Apologising profusely I put it in his room on the bed and he's now lying in it, determined not to let this treasure out of his sight.

Clearly this is HIS box!

PS I'm having real trouble with Blogger: half my toolbar has vanished. Anyone else have a problem?

My cats when they were born were placed in box lined with newspaper and old clothes so they are still attached with any boxes lying around the house and even my big vase is used as their 'sanctuary'

My blogger seems to be working fine.

The cat in the picture does not look Scoop at all. Maybe its the lighting. But he sure looks comfy in there.

My cat took over the sofa and converted it to a half camp tent. I used a cloth to cover it. She loves it and will crawl in & out, sleep and play. If I remove it, she will give me the look like hey.. where is my camp? Pls put it back .... hehehe XTFI

That looks like a very nice box to sleep in. Yes, keep it upstairs. And, my blogger seems fine too. Sorry to read that you are having problems.

Cats with tents, vases... it sounds like there are a lot of indulged kitties out there!
