Peevish Pen

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

Cat Boxes

We have been getting a lot of boxes from Amazon lately. While we humans have looked forward to the merchandise inside, the cats have coveted the boxes.

Camilla: "I saw it first. George. Too bad!"

"Hmm. It's certainly roomy. Maybe too big. I don't need all this space."

"I'll try this one." 

"No, that box is too small. Maybe this one."

"Ahhh. This one is just right."

George: "OK, I'll take this box."

"Camilla's right. This box is too big."

Chloe: "Let me have it then."

"Yeah, it's too big. Tanner, you can have it."

Tanner: "Yeah, too big."

George: "I thought Camilla would never leave! This box is just right."

"Snug. I like that in a box."

"But sometimes it's good to sleep outside the box."

"Especially if friends sleep with you."

"But sometimes it's nice to sleep alone. Outside the box."
