So, yesterday we saw many kitties enjoying many boxes in many different ways. But many people wondered how we spent Box Day here at Cult of Otis headquarters. Well, it started out with the Guardians putting out three or four different cardboard receptacles for the Inner Circle’s consideration. Really though, one box stood out as, by far, the best. It was a green box that was filled with wonderfully crinkly paper! Brother Oliver gave it a go first, starting off with a classic, “four-on-the-floor” sit.
After sitting upright, Brother Oliver transitioned to a perfect corner loaf. He occasionally shifted his weight from side to side to enjoy the crinkling sound it created.
Brother Oliver then graciously exited the box so Brother Henry could have a turn. OK, so Brother Henry sort of implied that Brother Oliver would be wise to let him have a turn, and Brother Oliver wisely complied. Brother Henry chose to do his own version of the four-on-the-floor.
Although Brother Henry clearly enjoyed the crinkly paper box, he was also intrigued by a nearby shallow box. He walked over to it and executed a very precise, “super shallow sit”.
I was thrilled the Brother Henry liked the shallow box, because it gave Me the opportunity to take a turn in the crinkly box. I’m not one for formal poses, so I just threw Myself into the papery goodness and had a full-body experience.
Now, we had already had a pretty amazing Box Day, but then came the icing on the catnip cake. Brother Henry convinced his new best friend Thomas to come down and do a box sit of his own! Brother Henry didn’t think Thomas was quite ready for the crinkly paper experience, so he guided him to a bare cardboard box with a smiley on the side. Thomas jumped right in and did a brilliant sit!
So as you can see, Box Day 2012 was a smashing success for all of us here at The Cult of Otis. I hope that your day was equally fun, and that all of your cardboardy wishes came true!
