Strange cats

We use Amazon a lot here in Boston. It's far more convenient than getting in our car or taking the T and then fighting Boston traffic to get someplace only to find that what we want (a specific coffee maker, for example) isn't in stock. So we use Amazon which means we have boxes.

Cats love boxes. Well I should say our cats love boxes. Yesterday I stacked four or five together in a big cardboard nest, and the cats had a blast taking that stack apart all day long. When they deconstructed the stack entirely, I'd put it back together and the fun would start again. Much to my surprise, Eddie didn't eat any of those boxes. I'm sure he will, it's only a matter of time because at heart, he's part beaver.

We also don't have cat beds. We don't need them because the cats would rather sleep in boxes. We usually have two boxes out, one on the recliner and one on the couch. Chloe sometimes sleeps in a box but usually she prefers her cushions with her smashed flat bear. Wally and Eddie cycle between the two boxes, although really Wally claims everything, as you can see here:

Love that "dead" pose. Tristan sleeps in one of our chairs every evening in what we call his "roadkill" pose.

Aw! Dead on the floor! Cutest pose ever! Juliette loves your cat videos btw.

There are lots for her viewing pleasure. What else would I do with my days?

Our cats like best of all the box that is just slightly too small. Then when you laugh at them, because half of them is hanging out of the box and it does not look very comfortable, they are offended.

My dogs love boxes, but the collective 80 pounds of tackling makes for a big mess. I'd get a video but they'd tackle me, too.
