Kitty In A Box

Kitty loves this time of year. Boxes arrive in the mail daily, and once the contents are taken out, we throw the box on the floor near the door to be taken out to the trash. But while we get excited about the box’s contents, Kitty gets excited about the box itself. She’ll walk into the room, notice the box, and hop into it to sit for a while, do some cleaning, or just enjoy the view from her box.

She loves to sit in boxes.

What Kitty doesn’t know is that there are times when we are sorely tempted to just close the flaps, slap some postage on it, and ship her off to some distant land. Like when she hides under the bed and grabs our ankles. Or like when she hides behind the couch and jumps out at us as we pass by. Or like when she escapes outside and when we ask her to come in she runs the other way at top speed.

She has no idea how close she’s come to being mailed to Alaska.

——-> ALSO LATER THIS WEEK: How to make a delicious fruitcake. Seriously, it’s very edible and very good. Hey, I wouldn’t lie to you folks.

Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    Kitty is so pretty, sitting in “her” box. Cats can enjoy so many simple things: boxes, sacks, crinkled up wrapping papers, etc. The newspaper while I am reading it, LOL.
    What we do without them!

    Your cat is adorable! I miss my cat so much! I’ve been tempted to get another, but I don’t know how my dog would take it… 🙂 Thanks for a great website. I have been enjoying your pictures and life on the farm 🙂

    Those boxes are just as good at entertaining cats as they are little kids! I have one that just can’t resist boxes too.

  7. Evelyn says:

    My cat is the same way! And, those plastic grocery bags? She can manage to get into one and then goes nuts trying to get out!

  8. Vivian says:

    Awww, don’t be too hard on her. She just wants to play. She has such an alert, expressive face. So cute!

  9. Thanks so much for sharing. What a pretty kitty. Our cat loves boxes too! I cannot wait to see your snow pictures and read about your fruitcake! Blessings to you and Merry Christmas!

    I think I recognize those priority mail stickers!!! Is that the box I sent you Suzanne?
    Well Kitty, you are very welcome for that box. I had no idea that I’d sent a multipurpose gift! Enjoy!

    I love your kitty. That face is just too adorable. She looks so huggable. You would surely miss her if she was in Alaska, I know you would!!!

  12. But I’ll bet she also knows you’d never do it. 😉

  13. This just gave me a good laugh! I’m trying to imagine you standing near the bed, completely unaware that you are about to be assaulted by a cat paw to the ankle! I’m sure you have jumped out of your skin a time or two! That little stinker!

    Being from a MN farm I can relate to your interesting blog, Suzanne.

    I can REALLY relate to your feline lovebug as I have a cat named Kitty who also happens to be a calico! I swear they each come with their own quirky bag of tricks…. our Kitty just happened to play in a similar size box this December as well!
    Maybe we could mail them both to Alaska!

    Please email me as I am contemplating a blog and can use a buddy. Thank you in advance and Happy New Year to all.
    These are pics of our goldens and kitty……
