Today is special, my friends. Today is a very special day, for sure, for today is the DAY OF THE BOX.
IT'S BOXING DAY, today!
Yeah, yeah, I know. It's also ninety-three weeks.
So sure, I've spent the last five hundred and six million, two hundred and seventeen thousand, six hundred cats seconds of this ol' pandemic thingy cooped up with the peeps, but do you know what?
YOU KNOW WHAT?
YOU KNOW WHAT?
Today is the day when I'm not gonna let that bother me. Nope, I'm not gonna let that bother me one bit, FOR TODAY IS THE DAY when I shall spend all seven hundred and seventy-seven thousand, six hundred cat seconds of the day, SITTIN' in a BOX.
WHERE ELSE WOULD ONE RATHER BE?
Nowhere, for sure.
Now I know some peeps out there might be thinkin' that Boxin' Day has other meanings, but you know somethin', my friends?
THEY WOULD BE WRONG.
'Cause when it comes to boxes, us cats know what's right and what's wrong. SO WHEN IT COMES TO BOXIN' DAY, us cats know what's right about that, too!
And by extension, also what's wrong.
Although technically, when you really think about the situation clearly, us cats know what's best about EVERYTHING, 'cause you know...
Not our fault we cats are smarter than peeps.
So today is the day when all cats need to grab a handy box and...
Well jump right in it, my friends!
Scratch that. First, before you jump into your box, you should really inspect it bit, makin' sure it's clean and pristine.
You know, that sorta thing.
Nothin' worse than jumpin' into a dirty box, my friends. Nothin' worse!
Scratch that. NOT HAVIN' a box into which you can jump is actually worse than jumpin' into a dirty one but nevertheless, no one wants to have to have a bath on account of gettin' all dirtied up 'cause some stupid peep filled your Boxin' Day Box with dirt and stuff. When a cat jumps into a box, havin' a bath is not the first thing a cat wants to do!
No sirree, first thing a cat wants to do after jumpin' into his or her Boxin' Day Box is have a nap.
I know this from personal experience, I do.
Plus, I watched a documentary 'bout it on TV.
Cats have those, you know. Boxin' Day dreams, I mean. We dream about boxes a lot.
Remember to mask up, too.
We don't get boxes like we used to get cause we refuse to give them up!ReplyDelete
You're kiddin'! Oh my mouses.... Your peeps no longer give you boxes? MOUSES!!!Delete
Happy Boxing Day!ReplyDelete
And a Very Happy Boxin' Day to you, too, my friend. PURRSDelete
Mouses! Effurrybody knows that Boxing Day is a day created especially by and for cats! Even humans know that - don't they???ReplyDelete
Well - they should! We've told them often enough, haven't We?
I know, RIGHT? We tell our peeps EVERY SINGLE DAY how much we cats love our boxes. We SHOW 'em and everythin'! Give a cat a box and you'll have a friend for life. PURRSDelete
Boxes are the best kitty magnet!! Well its now the 27th, but Happy Boxing Day anyways!ReplyDelete
Oh my mouses, my friends, I could celebrate Boxin' Day ALL YEAR LONG. MOUSES!Delete
You know, I always says, indeed I does, that whatever we cats dont know, isn't worth caring about. I'm guessing that's why we have such a laidback chilled out life and happy to have the true gift of boxing day. In fact, maybe peepss should realise it's the thought ie the box, rather than whats inside that counts. Unless of course we are inside, which turns that about a bit, naturally. Mouses!ReplyDelete

Of course! If there's a kitty - like me - inside that box, the contents are of the utmost importance, for sure. If not, who cares? Nothin' in this house is as important as me. MOUSES!Delete
Boxing Day is OUR holiday, isn't it?ReplyDelete
It sure is, my dear pal. It sure is. PURRSDelete
(And peeps had never forget it. MOUSES!)
Nap before jumping into the box, nap while inside the box, nap after you've moved to another box...it's a free-for-all, Seville!ReplyDelete
Yup, that there's what we cats call the triple threat. The three box nappin' experience. PURRSDelete
Our Boxes are in the minus bazillion degree cold of the garage! None of cats (except for Kozmo) will so much as stick our nose out the door to the garage, much less outside. Koz DID go out with the Peep and Cinnamon this AM, he did not even make it off the steps. He turned around and howled for the door to be opened. Don't freeze and we hope you got extra treats for Christmas (we did). Purrs MarvReplyDelete
Happy Belated Boxing Day!ReplyDelete
Yes, indeed, Sivvers! Nothing better than a box, especially if you are a cat! Happy belated Boxing Day to you, Saffron, and the Peeps!ReplyDelete
