Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

My cat lives in an Amazon box now


This is pretty much full-time these days. Nip is roughly 133 years old in human years now, and she’s decided to spend the last period of her life in this box. I parked it in a sun room overlooking our deck, so she can watch birds and catch some rays, but she mainly uses it for shuteye. If she doesn’t get 23.4 hours a day, she’s good for nothing.

Some may say it’s not fair to draw people in with a cat picture, but I say you can never go wrong with animals on the ‘nets.

This cranky lil critter may be ancient, but she’s riding a strong second wind these days.

    My cats love boxes too and paper bags. All the money I spend on pet toys and it’s the stupid Amazon boxes that they will actually play in πŸ˜‰ Make the most of that one hour a day that she’s awake.

      Yes, we relish her awake time. And no, I haven’t bought a cat toy in about 15 years… πŸ˜‰
