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!

  1. Oh man the power of boxes. Any box that comes into my apt., no matter what shape or size is fair game. Love the last photo the best with Andy alert and his eyes glowing with interest in what his brother is up to.

    • How true! Andy is over there right now trying to modify the boxes to his specifications, and Dougy just came running by to put a stop to it! I suspect I’ll hear some “discussion” (with emphasis on “cuss”) any moment now.

    • You are lucky! They are a real eyesore but the boys get a lot of play value out of them. They never liked the cat tunnels, however or nice kitty forts. Only the ugliest of old cardboard is good enough for them! LOL! Count yourself lucky yours prefer nicer things!

      • Both of my cats really like cat loungers made from the corrugated cardboard for scratching. Andy likes the rope scratcher on the cat tree, and Dougy is very naught, using furniture if I don’t stop him….!

      • FunTom uses ONE piece of furniture, my coffee table, but that is a table from IKEA, model Ingo, cost 29,90. And it endures the boy’s attack now since 2006. That is cheaper than the scretching device I bought for the two cats in 2006, which they love as a step up to the window sill. Only the new cat has ever scratched there. From 2011 on – and it is already torn. For 69,90 …

      • I was weatching a MysticBell video of Molly’s lovely family of pedigree Persian cats. They always look like pedigree cats, so handsome and well-behaved…then one of them was featured in a video standing on a cardboard scratching pad while scratching a chair! LOL! Good breeding doesn’t make any difference, it seems: Cats are cats!
