Official Cat Holiday: International Box Day

WAFFLES:  So Boss, if it's a cat holiday today how come I have to work?

KATIE:  Waffles, you don't know the meaning of work. When I was your age...

WAFFLES:  But Boss, kissing is hard work. And with these new volume discounts, I don't even think I can make enough scratch to go to chicken ranching school.



KATIE:  Waffles, you have plenty of scratch. And when you do finally go to your chicken ranching school, I've got the perfect place for you to live. How do you feel about camping?





WAFFLES:  I don't know Boss. This looks pretty flimsy. And I can't really drive it anywhere, right? It's not like an RV or something. How will I get to chicken ranching school?

KATIE:  Well I was kind of thinking we could just ship you...

WAFFLES:  Ship??? Like in the water? I KNOW!!! And you can come too.

KATIE:  Uh oh.



We all live in a cardboard submarine,
a cardboard submarine,
a cardboard submarine.

About Today's Photos
In honor of International Box Day, we picked out a few of our very favorite box photos from previous blog posts. Sometimes Glogirly draws on boxes with her big Sharpie and sometimes she draws on boxes in Photoshop.  For Katie, boxes have been more of a spectator sport. She's very cautious about getting into enclosed spaces... especially with Waffles looking on.

But for the orange daredevil, an open box is an open invitation to fun and games. A box to Waffles is like a playground to a little kid. We'd love to know what kind of adventures he's imagining.



International Box Day
Yup, it's a real thing.

  1. I don't care for boxes myself - it's not like I'm suspicious of them. I'm just indifferent. I guess I am weird for a kitty!

  8. Perhaps that is why no one around here ever sits in a box for more than a minute. And the Woman wants to know how good those volume discounts are for Waffles kisses--she would like eleventy million of them...
