This is not a box to place the 5 year old fruitcake in and then jokingly mail it back to your friend as you both do every year........
it is not a box to wrap shiny ribbons and flashy paper on.........
This is..... MY box...........
until further notice.

Oh this tickles me. Cats love boxes don't they? Salem is beautiful. Christmas is all about the boxes, right?

nothing like a good cardboard box to replace all other playthings!

Look at that ole evil eye!!! Who would dare take his Christmas box! Not me! :o)

Salem is a beautiful cat. I had a solid black one a long time ago. She was my favorite cat!

How cute is that?! And I know he means it too! My cats love to get in everything..today I heard a noise over by the Ch. tree, thought it was the kitty rattling around in the gifts. I look up and she is in the top of the tree peeking out at me! Does yours do that? Come say hi :D

Kathleen,
My boys just created a box for our cat, Oreo, on the deck just outside the French door. They put in a couple of their old shirts and she looks so happy curled up like a princess:) Wonder what it is about boxes and cats?!

Daisy said...

HA HA HA! Thanks for the smile, Kathleen! It's easy to see who the boss is there! :D

Kim said...

Do you look at LOLCats? He certainly has Basement Cat's eyes! No taking THAT box away! Boxes are better than toys too, ours always love the Christmas boxes.

This a funny post. Cat's have such personalities. They are aloof sometimes, but when they want their feelings known, there isn't any doubt. Your post on the wintery morning was so peaceful. I used to love walking outside in the hush after a snow.
Thanks for sharing.

I love cats in boxes...and paper sacks!

Conni said...

Hehe! Well, at least that box appears to be a good size for him. My kittehs are always trying to squeeze themselves into boxes that are way too small!

Flower said...

Salem is a good protector of "the box!" I just sent a fruit cake off to family. I have no idea what they will do with it!! :))

Farm Chick Paula said...

Okay, I think Salem means business!

someone has clearly staked his territory and you ought to not mess with it!
