Recently I got a $40 off $80 coupon from Zapos and since I needed sneakers I decided to use it. I had a choice of getting one pair of $80 shoes or two pairs of $40 shoes. I chose the latter because I am cheap like that. I also have big feet so two pairs of shoes came in a big box. It was probably bigger than it needed to be but that is probably because they knew I had cats.
I decided to use the box to construct another Fort Box for the cats since the last two were a big hit. I took several photos along the way and all of them came out either bad or horrible because the lighting was not ideal and the cats wouldn’t stop moving. I am including them here reluctantly because I need something to illustrate the story.
As before I cut several peep holes and two doors but this time I left the flap on one of the doors for privacy. I also cut an escape hatch on the top.
Of course, Chris took over the box immediately.
Floki was also interested but was too late.
At one point Floki managed to get inside.
That is when Chris decided to exert his dominance.
After some time of Chris’s selfish behavior, Rose asked me to take the new car seat we just bought out of the box so Frankie and Floki could have a box. This I did and Frankie was very happy with his alternative box.
He was happy until Chris discovered there was another box.
They all are so lovely. Is is funny how important all the boxes are.
It is very entertaining. 🙂
Somebody is a box hog! 😉 It’s a good thing he hasn’t figured out how to take over both of them at the same time.
I’m sure he thought about it.
Poor Floki. He seems to be the least assertive of the bunch
Yes and no. When it’s time to eat wet food both Floki and Frankie have no trouble pushing Chris aside to eat his food.
Boxes sometimes bring out the worst in us cats! (And the mom wants to know how you got a $40 coupon for Zappos!)
I was a customer before so I guess I got on their mailing list. It was a pretty good deal considering it was free shipping too.
Two boxes, three cats : you need another box obviously ! Purrs
I have another box but I need to go to the store because I am out of tape.
HAHAHAHA…..the more boxes the more conflict. Oh well – there’s plenty of room to go around but try telling THAT to the kitty crew!
Chris will share the bed but not the box.
Musical boxes sure beats musical chairs!
It does seem like more fun.
They are having as much fun as Christmas morning.
That gives me an idea for next Christmas.
There was definitely room for two (at least) in the Zappo’s box. #selfishkitty
Yes there was.
we love zappos, but they can not send things to europe… and even their boxes are just fabulous!!! have fun in zappos castle!
They don’t send to Europe? That’s pretty stupid for such a big company.
