Box Day 2014: Call For Submissions

Disciples of The Leader Otis,

Brother Henry here.

Box Day 2014 is nearly upon us! I have been given the honor of being this year’s Master of Ceremonies, so I’ve been sitting lots of boxes to get myself in the right headspace for the job.

I’ve been sitting lots of boxes in preparation for my job as Master of Ceremonies.

For those of you who only recently became Disciples of Otis, let me remind you of what Box Day is all about. Here is how it is described on The Cult of Otis website:


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.

On Box Day, no box is too large or too small to be sat in.

Please join us in celebrating Box Day by sending us your photos of kitties sitting boxes. There’s only one kind of box we don’t want to see kitty in, and that’s a litter box. Even kitties need privacy now and then.

If you would like to participate in our Box Day celebration, please send your photo submissions to by 3 pm Pacific Time, December 23. If you have the technical know-how to do so, please rename the photos with your kitty’s name, and resize them so that they are 600 pixels on their longest side. If you do not know how to do that, don’t worry. Just send your photos and Brother Oliver will take care of the rest.

So please send your photos right away! I’ll be here, in this box, waiting for them.

I’ll be here waiting for your submissions!

So says Brother Henry

  1. Reblogged this on cgw629 and commented:

  2. “Luna! Come here, please, and get in this box. No, not the laundry basket, THIS BOX. You know, the same one you jump into almost every night. Yes, it’s still raining outside, there’s no need to keep checking the window. The box is HERE, Luna, not over by the window. Okay, look, I’ll just pick you up and put you in the box … Luna, come back here!” *sigh*

    • Uh-oh, Rhiannon. I guess I failed to mention that cat’s love to sit in boxes, but only if it was their idea first. The only thing we love more than sitting in boxes is doing the exact opposite of what our Guardians ask us to do. 🙂 -Brother Henry

  3. Otis is extremely handsome. I feel unworthy, yet all giggly and fawning at the same time. Is he available for parties?

  4. RC Cat has been examining all the boxes that have been appearing and has informed Staff that her selection will be made when the time is right…probably midnight….when she will yowl her notification loud enough to be acknowledged by Staff who waste so much time taking up space on Her bed.

    • Midnight is the best time for decision making! It’s also the best time to get rid of unwanted hairballs, preferably right on the bed that the Guardians are sleeping in. – Brother Henry

  5. Brother Henry I am sure you are smiling in that last photo!!!!
