Post 833: playing in boxes comes naturally…on Caturday

It seems the boys pick up on my intentions. For example, I’d love to toss several boxes scattered through the apartment, but boxes the boys ignore for weeks suddenly become favorite play zones the moment I get the urge. Andy and Dougy are uncanny this way.

Such is the case of a couple of boxes in the front room. They look ratty and I’d love to toss them. Dougy chose this morning, however, to renew his interest in them as play zones. Of course!

Dougy taunts me.  Yes, he decides he wants to play in this box.

Woohoo! Dougy's on secret cat business...!

Woohoo! Dougy’s on secret cat business…!

Take my word for it: Anything that walks past this

Take my word for it: Anything that walks past this “window” will reap the tragic murder-claw of horrific death!

Next Dougy attacks whatever is under the flap (nothing...!), thoroughly ripping at the carpet.  No wonder the pet deposit is nonrefundable!

Andy becomes excited on hearing the carpet scritching!  Dougy better pay attention if he wants to keep the boxes to himself!

Yes, the last photo is foreshadowing. Tomorrow, we’ll see if Andy messes with Dougy’s fun. I can pretty much predict he will!
