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 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!

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!

    • Makes me smile to see how they take over boxes withouyt prompting! As soon as I bring boxes in, they are hanging around at my feet, getting in the way, trying to get into the boxes before I finish unpacking them. In fact, one of the photos of Dougy shows him standing on top of a box with computer speakers that came in one box…!

  1. Those two provide so much entertainment and heart smiles. Ali loves boxes too and when we go to Walmart we always grab a new card board for her when they leave them laying in the aisles after they are empty.

    • Dougy has a broader face than Andy. His eyes are farther apart and are darker than Andsy’s. Andy is slimmer and longer in body than Dougy. Dougy has a more classic Persian body: thick and broad. Andy’s tail is longer and quite handsome. Dougy’s tail is nice, but isn’t quite as lovely as his brother’s. It may be easier to tell them apart in life because they have distinct personalities, with Dougy being gregarious and Andy more reserved. I try to identify them in the blog, though, since they are difficult to tell apart in some circumstances, even for me!

  2. Photo No. 6 — I think it was 6 — I see duct tape and square holes cut into a box. You not only give them boxes but you also built them a cat fort from boxes? It makes me feel like such a bad cat mother. Fortunately, that my cat is forgiving. Glad to see you and the boys are still going strong. 🙂

    • Yes, the fort was an eyesore I gladly got rid of after months of living with it! LOL! I still have a nasty box they love in the living room, a bod that regularly is featured in photos. Dougy especially likes it because he can get in it, and grad=b his kitty wand toy lure when it swings boy on the outside. (He’s an A=ambush master as a kitty hunter.
