Cats in boxes

I know, I know, we have all seen many many cute pictures of cats in boxes, because cats. And boxes.

But come on, you know you were eager for a cat-sitting-in-a-box fix this morning.

Besides, this:

Shows an admirable determination to SIT IN THE BOX, don’t you think?

As you may gather, someone sent me a lot of animal-in-small-space pictures this morning. Owls perched in the end of a pipe, goats tucked into a tub that I expect is supposed to hold water, large dogs in small laundry baskets, etc.

My very own cat has a box meant to be used while picking peaches at a pick-it-yourself operation. The peach orchard is gone now, but the box remains in my living room, because, cat. He FILLS UP THAT BOX, let me tell you, because he is a big cat and the box is about the size of a (wide) loaf of bread.

I try not to let the puppies chew the box up too badly.

I don’t have a picture handy of my cat stuffed in his peach-picker’s box, but I will just note that the desire to sit in boxes appears to be widespread in the Felidae.

Because this:

Ah, the universality of instinct!
