WOYWW & WW: If The Box Fits…


Not Every Box In The Paper Palace Is Filled With Art Supplies
Quote Of The Week
A cat has absolute emotional honesty:
human beings, for one reason or another,
may hide their feelings, but a cat does not.
Ernest Hemingway

Hi Everyone, have you missed me? It feels like I’ve been sidelined for way too long, so today, I, Legend, am taking over the keyboard and sharing yet another behind-the-scenes story from The Paper Palace!

When I was a young lad, Mom created a special toy box for me. She read in some kitty parenting book that instead of giving me all of my toys at once, she should give me a different toy each day to extend my interest in each one, so she created this toy box to store my toy collection in.

Whenever she thinks I’m bored – or about to do something she doesn’t want me to do, like eat her scrapping supplies – she pulls out the toy box and lets me hunt for the toy of my choice to play with.

If this sounds like an idea you would like to implement in your household, look closely at the picture to see just what I think of this idea!

As you may have gathered from my expression – I am not a fan of this concept! I know the difference between an old toy and a new one. I am the cat! I do not like being toyed with.
 
So, I have invented a little game of my own. I pull out all of my toys from the box – including the messy catnip – scatter them around the room – squeeze myself into the undersized box – then watch Mom clean up the mess I made. Naughty, I know – but some days, that’s just how I feel!

Is This What’s In Your Scrapping Cart?

Now that I’ve gotten that off of my chest – I am going to find an out-of-the-way spot to nap since Mom is not such a fan of these tell-alls. Think I can pin it on Tsunami?

Until next time… Happy What’s On Your Workspace Wednesday!

    you are a smart cat, Legend! My kitty and dog ( yuck I know) liked to hide in boxes & when ever we tried to plan a get away, they would sneak inside our suitcases, mush like your scrapbox! LOL! I hope you get some new toys soon. GrammyMouseTails

    Hi There,

    I found you via TT blog hop. We have three cats over here. One has taken a habit to digging out all our socks and sleeping in the drawer. For a while, we had NO idea what was going on and even blamed each other, than we saw the culprit.

    Sooo cute, we couldn't be mad at him.

    I'm following. 🙂 Follow back at

    It's amazing where cats end up falling asleep. My mom's cat fell asleep in a vanity drawer, and the drawer was way too small for him, but he ended up fitting.
    Cat's are too cute, and yours definitely is!!

    What is with cats & boxes.
    happy WW, thanks for linking up.

  22. GLENDA BROOKS says:

    Cats are such wonderful creatures. They seem to find the most unusual spots to nap. For whatever reason a small space always entices them!

  23. Mrs A. says:

    Hi Legend,
    It's us again. Well nearly all of us cos Wimpee has gone into hiding cos he has spied the cat boxes in the garden and that can only mean one of two things 'THE VET' or holidays. Wev'e been to the the Vets so must mean we are going on our hols soon.It's not so bad as we get to have the big pen next to the horses paddock and the hen pen so we have plenty to see.
    All boxes might not contain art supplies but there is a dang gone art getting into those darn boxes. We know we have tried it.Mums got some pictures somewhere.
    All for now. Purrs The persians#58

    i've tried buying expensive cat beds and houses but my cats always prefer to sleep in the places not particularly meant for them… laundry baskets, paper bags, box, etc.

    i love the quote too. SO true. <3
