A Box With A Story

Meows from Mudpie on one of the happiest days of the year for us kitties...International Box Day!!!


My very first review as a professional kitty blogger came just a couple weeks after I moved into my forever home when I received a Purr Packs box in the mail. (I'm so sad that the subscription service has been discontinued because it was a totally pawsome box!) In it contained my all-time favorite animal print mousie who I lovingly refer to as my Baby, and at the bottom of the box was a horizontal cardboard scratcher that I've done my nails on every single day since it arrived.

Geez, was I ever that tiny???

Needless to say, after nearly two years it's been pretty much falling apart at the seams (and leaving miniscule cardboard crumbles all over the living room floor), so a couple weeks ago Mommy finally found a replacement insert to fit the outer box decorated with cute kitty faces.


I was ecstatic! I was going to have the best looking claws in the neighborhood! I couldn't wait to hop in and start scratching!

Then less than a week later I lost my breakfast on it.

Luckily my puke was thick (is that TMI?) and Mommy was able to scoop it right up with a paper towel, and then she removed the insert and put it in the bathroom window to dry and remove any lingering odors.

What was I doing while she was busy cleaning up my mess? I took a nap in the empty box!

That is a very special box - I'm glad it didn't get ruined!

OMC, you were so little! It's neat that you still have that same favorite box, even if it does have a puke stain on it. :)

That box isn't only special, Mudpie, but also just about as cute as you! Just look at all those cute kitty heads! And don't worry, Mudpie, sometimes puke is simply the topic of conversation. Purrs, and happy Box Day!

That's a great multipurpose box Mudpie!

We would have done the same thing, Mudpie. That's a excellent box...and scratcher.

Too cute! Hope your scratcher is as good as new, now, Mudpie. :)

MP, we all have our special possessions and that's your's. TW actually has a wood frame that Aunt Pauline gave her to donate that might fit that. Dunno if it would ruin your enjoyment or not.
