Happy Monday everyone! Today is fun and games day so instead of thinking outside the box like I usually try to do, I am sticking with a box. I bought a bunch of these boxes on sale at Home Depot last week for 69cents/each. I am going to use most for my decluttering project, but I got a couple extra for the kitties.



I also want to tell you about a contest I saw listed in Woman’s World Magazine. Its not really a contest, but something they do every month. You can send a photo of your pet and if they publish it, you get $100. You email your photo to

Phoebe will see you tomorrow for Cinco de Mayo! And a giveaway…….


  1. Boxes? Boxes! Oh my cat! Have you received our email? Speaking of boxes … please check it out and get back with us … oh, we do love BOXES!

    1. Yes, we saw that, but we haven’t decided which one of us to enter yet- tough choice with 15. πŸ™‚

    1. Most kitties do, but Lucyshe is totally out of the box all the time. πŸ™‚

  2. joanie…that box iz total lee rockin awesum….N therz even enuff room in ther fora snax tray …how kewl iz that !! β™₯β™₯β™₯ yur mom did good πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you. Wait til you see the cool box Dad gave us, it is like a tunnel. A tree came in it. πŸ™‚

  3. Can’t have too many boxes, we always say. Can’t express too many hisses when mom tosses some out. Why would she even think to do that? *hisses*

    1. Dad burned a whole bunch of boxes to start his brush pile back in February so they owe us. πŸ™‚

    1. Joanie says thank you πŸ™‚ I wish I could get my hubby to declutter, I am running out of stuff to get rid of. πŸ™‚

  4. Boxes are just the best, no two ways about it. We love our boxes. You all have a great day.

    1. I never heard of a kitty that didn’t like a box- I wonder if there are any?

  5. Boxes are always a hit! I don’t know why I spend money on beds and towers and tunnels, when a 69 cent box would do just as well! πŸ™‚

    1. I usually do the same thing πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting us.

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ I know you never met a box you didn’t like πŸ™‚

  6. I’m not such a boxy boy, unless we are talking about that blue box πŸ˜‰
    We got your card, mom started the laugh like you wrote down. We will post it tomorrow.
    Love & kisses,

    1. A TARDIS is the best box ever because it is much bigger on the inside πŸ™‚ I am glad the card arrived.

  7. Joanie, you look very satisfied to be in that box! Was there a lot of competition? πŸ˜‰

    the critters in the cottage xo

  8. You are the Best Mom on the Planet to buy boxes *just* for the kitties! Ours have to make do with whatever gets delivered…SO deprived.

    1. Thank you, but I think your kitties have it really good- they even have that nice catio.

  9. Jpanie, any of you would and should be the winner. Please tell Phoebe that I got my chicken legs and my donuts and OH! MY!! GOODNESS!!! Thank you so much. Thing is mine mommy loves them so much it was hard to get her to turn loose of them. Fanks you Joanie’s mommy. xxooxxo
