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.
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:
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
So says Brother Henry
