Caturday Art: Box Bash!

My furbabies and I are loving how this weekend is kicking off. For one, it's Caturday, which means the Caturday Art blog hop we enjoy so much, hosted by our furiend Athena. That's not all, though, because today is also International Box Day! And it sure seems like that's pretty much every kitty's (and I'm sure plenty of pups') dream come true.

While all of my feline furbabies enjoy a good ol' box, there's one who goes especially bonkers for those cardboard paradises. Which furbaby is that, you ask? Evan!


As you can see, we've rolled our Caturday Art and International Box Day celebration into one. It seemed like the thing to do (especially since pouring through hundreds of photos somehow still left me devoid of any kitty-in-box pictures - how is that even possible?!?).

Evan wants to know, what are your favorite box games to play? He likes to use his boxes to play hideaway and ambush. How about you?

Happy Caturday, everybuddy!

Our Tip of the Day:
Today seems like the perfect day to revisit a previous tip we gave a while back...If you find yourself with a decently sized cardboard box, don't toss it out right away. Let your kitty have some play time in it. You can toss it on the floor as is, or you can turn it into a cardboard kitty cottage by cutting a door and some windows into it. You can take it a step further by saving up a few boxes and using them to create a whole cardboard kitty castle. Get creative - cut all sort of doors and windows into the boxes, stack them together, adhere them together (but be sure all tape, glue, or other adhesives are hidden from any curious kitties). You can even get artsy and decorate it. The options are endless, and your kitty will love you for it!

  8. Aw, what cute art. Happy Box Day! There are a few box games I like. TW will throw a toy into the box and I'll jump in to try to bat the toy out.
