Put an empty box in the middle of a room…

Will this box stay empty for long?

And if you have cats…

A box is a cat magnet

It won’t stay empty for long! A box is a cat magnet! What is it about boxes that us cats love so much? We don’t know…we just do!

Island Cats in boxes

Cats and boxes go together like…

  • Peanut butter and jelly
  • Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers
  • night and day
  • milk and cookies
  • Batman and Robin
  • Tom and Jerry
  • chips and salsa
  • thunder and lightening
  • Bert and Ernie

  8. I wish I knew why we love them so much. As you said, we just do.

  9. unless you are me……..

  10. Can someone tell me why a box leaves me absolutely cold. Mama puts out boxes of all kinds and I just look at them, even when they are turned on their sides.
    Hmmm. I hope I’m okay and do not have a box phobia.
    Maybe if she gave me a box of chocolates……

  11. Super cute photos. We can’t decide if we like boxes or squirrels best, but boxes are definitely magnets. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

  12. We are waiting for bag day now

  13. I haven’t had a good box lately, mum needs to get me one.

  14. Eastside Cats is littered with boxes; on the table, on the floor…just so Angel and Chuck can enjoy. And The ‘O’ Cats have two or three boxes too; I replace them often and push a brick up against to keep the wind from taking them away.

  15. It looks like you’re having a box party Wally, Ernie & Zoey! Boxes are the BEST! We cats like any size, shape and color – right?! We just can’t get enough of them. What I love about them, too, is that boxes can transform into castles, tower walls, derby cars, caves, etc. The only limits are the imagination! Mom always lets me check out any box that the brown truck man delivers to the house. Tee hee hee!

  16. Happy Box Day! We are a bit mixed up about boxes here. I don’t care a thing about boxes but Chancy has a box that he sleeps in sometimes. Who would ever think a pooch would like a box bed. Hugs and nose kisses, Pooh.

  17. Enjoy your time in the box!

  18. Can you believe we FORGOT about International Box Day?!

  19. I’m raising all my paws in 400% agreement
    Hugs madi your bfff

  20. It’s strange, but Raven has no interest in the Chewy boxes her food comes in. I think they’re too wide & short. You all certainly have had a variety of sizes to choose from, and that’s a lot of fun.

  26. The total truth! They are cute, too. xo

  27. It is funny how boxes are so irresistible.

  28. Very different from dogs I suppose. Mine absolutely hate being put into the boxes!

  29. so so true–but I wish you hadn’t said chips and salsa as an example–now i have a craving!1

  34. Happy International Box day!
