Cat in a Box

Okay, so for all the times I've seen all y'all's posts about boxes and how cute you are sitting in them and how I've said boxes aren't my thing and I prefer bags and I'm not a box cat and what all else, I guess I have to say I was wrong.
  Whatever.
Now, honestly, I'm (dad's) too lazy to pore over these past few years' posts to make sure, but I proved dad wrong this past weekend on the box thing.
He and mom recently came home with another new pair of clodhoppers for dad, and left the box sitting open on the floor in the living room.  Well wouldn't you know, I was drawn to it like flies to- anyway, you get my point. 
Once I stepped inside and circled once or twice as we do I snuggled right in all nice and comfy, and of course, out came the phones.
The box is still on the floor as I write this, and I'm in it just about every day. 
The other afternoon mom and dad were lounging and talking on their bed, and dad came out, picked me up (in the box) and brought me into their room, where I stayed with them, even doing my bathing while they sat and talked.  Lastly, thank y'all for the tip on switching back to the old Blogger.  If dad was a little smarter and had more patience he'd likely have been able to figure it out for himself instead of just bitching about it.

You are now a convert, Cleo!
This doesn't mean you cannot still enjoy bags too, but now you have options!
"Clophoppers"...hahahaha!
As a child, we called them canal boats!
Methinks it's a term brought over from the old country, or at least from New Jersey.

That looks like the purrfect box for you sweet Cleo and you look darn cute in there!

Yep, don't knock it till you try it. You're now a believer. It's a good thing.

Oh Cleo I love a Feline Lady who is up for new things....cats might be persnickety but they are always up for fun...at least one time. You never know til you try and well if you don't like it you can give it your back of disrespect.

Oh woe with me...New blogger was letting me return to legacy blogger then all of a sudden on Thursday no more option it just crept into my computer like a sneaky tree rat.
Hugs to you my Queen of cuteness and your peeps

Those are lovely photos, Cleo!

Being cats, we are free to change our minds anytime, right? In fact, humans should not put us in a box, tee hee!

Purrs,
Tama and Genji

Cleo you found the joy of the box. I myself especially enjoy the boxes shoes come in. Darn dad buys them so seldom though. Oh, by the by, We think you can no longer use "Old blogger" and they changed more stuff. Wheee Google

It is good to try something new, Cleo. It keeps the parents guessing too.
Blogger has done the dirty! Every time I have been able to switch back to the old blogger, but Thursday evening when I wanted to do my Friday Flashback the option had gone!!
The biggest problem for me is that my flashbacks are all done by HTML copy and paste. Old blogger had I think 26 posts to a page so easy to find what I was looking for. New blogger has it so you have to scroll down every post on the same page. It's bad enough while I am taking posts from the original blog and "only" have about 630 to scroll through, but when I get to what once was new blogger I will have to scroll through over 2000 posts. It is ridiculous!!

Our sisfur Sami loved, loved, loved boxes especially when there was a soft towel in the bottom. And it looks like your beans made your box comfortable too. Enjoy!

Sometimes it just takes the right box to learn how good they can be. Looks like you found yours, Cleo.

Hahaha! I was late to box-love myself, and I am still quite picky about them. But there's nothing like the right box at the right time! Good for you.

I find it interesting that you discovered a shoe box. ;) Enjoy, sweet Cleo!

That looks like a wonderful box. It's a good size, sturdy, and has a little hole for pokey paw.
