Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

Cat Boxes

Among other upgrades (mentioned in this post), I'm upgrading the look of my den. I'd ordered new  cushions from to replace the faded and worn ones on my This End Up furniture.

I thought they'd arrive the first week in February, but when we returned from Kroger-shopping on Tuesday, three big boxes were waiting on the deck.

We dragged them in, opened them, and allowed Chloe to give them a cat scan.

I loved the color of the cushions, but Chloe was fascinated with the boxes.

So was Dylan.

Even after I moved an empty box into the hall, Chloe and Dylan followed it.

Eventually, however, they decided there was nothing in the boxes to interest them.

I'll post more about the den upgrade in a week or so. Meanwhile, if I can just figure a way to keep the cats in the boxes and off the furniture. . . .

Put a mirror in the boxes.
