As you know, December 26 is Box Day. What’s that? You didn’t know!? OK, I better explain what box day is then. Here’s the run down from cultofotis.com:
Box Day- December 26
No one knows why, but cardboard boxes are the most interesting things in the universe to a cat. No matter how many fancy beds you buy, no matter how much you spend on cat trees or other kitty “furniture”, no matter how many balls, catnip toys, laser pointers and other items you provide, your cat will lose interest in all of them the moment you place an empty cardboard box on the floor. If a box is present, it must immediately be investigated and, most likely, sat in. Only cats know the secret of the box’s appeal, but Box Day is the day of the year to celebrate your feline’s affinity for all things cardboard. So on December 26, fill an entire room with boxes of varying size, shape and depth and let kitty explore them and sit in them to his or her heart’s desire.
Box day occurs two days after Catsmas, and one day after the Christian human holiday called Christmas. Both Catsmas and Christmas seem to result in a large number of empty boxes, so it is only natural that Box Day comes right after them.
It is a holiday tradition here on The Blog of Otis to have a big Box Day photo catstravaganza! If you would like your kitty to be included in this year’s celebration, please send your photos to us by 3 pm on Dec. 25.
We can’t wait to see your photos. Let’s make this the best Box Day ever!
