Post 673: cat in the box surprise…

The other day, I posted photos of Andy playing in a tight, flat box. Yeah, I wanted to toss it. No, Andy had other plans! Since I spoil my boys totally, I saved the ugly box.

All clear! No Dougy in sight!

Having saved the ugly box, I was delighted that Andy didn’t show any more interest in it. 

Then, yesterday, I heard a rustle behind me while I worked on my blog. I turned around and saw this:

Definitely a cat tail!  And the cat in the box was playiong that game the boys play with that wand toy, the one with strange rules I can't discern that always ends up in them chasing each other all over the house, leaving the wand toy where the game started.

It seemed like Andy was challenging Dougy to a game of “whatever-the-hell-that-game-is-that-starts-with-a-cat-in-a-box-guarding-the-wand-toy-with-multi-colors-that-has-strange-rules-and-that-ends-in-a-chase”. This was choice! I leaned down to get a better photo of Andy:

When I looked at the photo on my camera, the shaky image still showed me something I didn't expect.

So I took another photo, hoping to have better clarity.

Trust me! Though I never got a shot that you can see the cat in the box as clearly as I could, it turned out to be Dougy! Yes, the bigger of the two brothers managed to squeeze into a spot his smaller brother Andy barely fit the other day! 

This is how the boys get to keep their boxes. I think they use telepathic powers to pick up my intentions to toss a nasty-looking box I haven’t seen they playing on, then one or the other cat plays on it long enough to save it from the trash. I don’t put anything beyond my kitties!

The boys had their game of “what’s-it”, then took a nap. Of course!

    • They came as a pair because the woman who has their mother noticed Andy and Dougy played well together when they were babies. She knew I wanted Andy and that I was planning on finding a companion for him at the local shelter. Since Andy already had a playmate he liked in his brother, she offered Dougy to me, too, and it was a no-brainer. (“What were you thinking? You can’t handle one kitten, let alone, two!” I told myself over and over…. 😉 I made big use of the Google search and KITTENS FOR DUMMIES to get through their kittenhood.)
