WCB #47: Cats Don't Share

You know how little kids often like the box that a toy comes in better than the box itself? (Dad once built a giant box fortress for Devorit and me when they bought a gadzillion large appliances all at once -- in my mind's eye, it stretched across the living room and was the Best Fortress Ever.) My cats -- and, I suspect, yours too -- are the same way.

Especially Max. Max fell in love with a Poland Springs box:

And much joy was had as he squirmed about. But trouble lay ahead, for Max is not the dominant cat in our household. Widget, the demon cat, is. And while he had no interest in the box before Max found it, it was only a matter of time before he realized that he could torment his brother by making him give it up.

Widget: Ho ho ho! What do we have here?

Max: Noooooooooo!

Mom, don't let him take away my box! I've got my mousie right where I want him and he'll ruin EVERYTHNG!

Luckily for Max, we drink a lot of bottled water. Solution:

And peace reigned supreme...until Widget decided he wanted Max's box, frantic wrestling ensued, and both boxes were trampled in the melee. Oh well.

Take a minute to visit the elegant Kiri and his friends over at Clare's!

    They are adorable! What is it with cats and playing in tiny places? My best mate's cat (Dr. Conway) has an obsession with climbing into her mail tray...which is so small it looks like it'll burst when he gets in!
