Post 750: “A Tale of Two Kitties”…or…”Mi Casa es MI Casa!”

Before this happened, though, Andy had to spend some time alone with the prized boxes, and that was possible because Dougy decided to leave the area

Dougy marked his favorite box by scratching it, but both kitty boys had a box when you last saw them.

Before this happened, though, Andy spent some time alone with the prized boxes, and that was possible because Dougy decided to leave the area “for kitty reasons”. (Who knows?)

Andy bravely checks out the smaller box, the one Dougy didn't mark.

Sniff! Sniff!

Sniff! Sniff!

Under the watchful eye of Dougy, Andy makes a decision to check out the smaller box. It's a better choice for a cat anyway: Tight is best!

The smaller box is a better choice for a cat anyway: Tight is best! Andy’s made up his mind.

Woohoo! A good, really good fit!

Woo hoo! A good, really good fit! Dougy seems a bit blase about Andy’s discovery.

Andy checks out the possibilities for his new box. It's a comfortable fit, he can tell!

All this drama's made Andy sleepy!

Of course, it's so quiet. Where's that Dougy and what's up with him?! (Andy knows better than to get too comfortable!)

The main thing is Andy now has claim to the smaller box. Dougy's still oblivious to the implications: He left the area so now he has to share one box with his brother!

All in all, the box delivery is a success, with both kitty brothers getting a box of his own.

Post 749: Oh boy! Boxes!

Nothing gladdens a kitty’s heart more than new boxes, and the UPS delivery person made two very happy kitties by bringing two new boxes to the house.

Andy and Dougy can'ty believe their good luck! Two new boxes! All there's left to do is sort out who gets which one or who gets both.

Andy and Dougy can’t believe their good luck! Two new boxes! All there’s left to do is sort out who gets which one… or who gets both.

Dougy hops right to it.

Dougy's first one in!

Dougy’s the first one in, and Andy has to wait his turn, if Dougy lets him have one!

Dougy hears something outside: Another box delivery? (No, false alarm.)

Back to business! Can't let Andy have a shot at the boxes!

Back to business! Can’t let Andy have a shot at the boxes!

And Andy has been thinking about taking over!

And Andy sees the boxes aren’t guarded…for now! He plans a coup!

Andy confronts Dougy. This box isn't big enough for two! And Andy wants it.

Andy makes his case: MINE! Get out!

Andy hops in...on top of  Dougy!

Andy hops in…on top of Dougy! More than one way to skin – or unbox – a cat!

Dougy sends Andy packing!

Dougy sends Andy packing! Dougy had “home box advantage”.

“Don’t go away mad, just go away, Andy!”

>scratch-scratch-scratch< Dougy marks HIS box, just in case Andy didn't get his point!

Dougy marks HIS box, just in case Andy didn’t get his point!

Smug Dougy!

Smug Dougy! Andy’s gone for now.

Tomorrow, Andy regroups and gets his box. In the meantime, just so you don’t feel bad for Andy, here’s one last photo of the boys, each in his own box:

Dougy (on left) in his box; Andy in his. The boys worked it out, then Dougy ran off on cat business,  leaviong both boxes to Andy. More about that tomorrow!
