Wordless Wednesday – Cats And Bags

Tsunami - Cats And Bags 1

Welcome To Wordless Wednesday At Create With Joy!

Quote Of The Week

Letting the cat out of the bag
Is a whole lot easier than putting it back in!

Will Rogers

Cats And Bags

Have you ever gone to the grocery store,
Come home and unpacked your bags,
Only to discover something unexpected rustling inside of your packages?

If there’s a kitten in the house,
A sight such as this is probably not unfamiliar to you!

Felines of all ages love to play inside bags –
They love the safety that cozy spaces provide and
The crinkly sounds they make.
Some cats like Tsunami even like to lick the bags!

Bags can present unexpected dangers to cats, however.
Plastic bags can cause suffocation or choking hazards.
Baby Tsunami was moved to safety after his antics were discovered!

Paper bags should have their handles removed
As cats can get their heads stuck in them
And injure themselves trying to escape!

It’s fun to watch cats play with bags –
But watch them closely (and never give them plastic ones!)

Do your cats play with bags?

    Love seeing cats and kids play with bags … but never plastic ones… it is always the simple things that amuse not the expensive “toys” that we buy! Love the vids.

      I’ve had cats who loved hiding in shopping bags (favorite toy!) and others who ignore them.
      Whenever I’ve pulled out bags for Magellan to play with, he’s looked at me as if I’ve lost my marbles –
      I guess he’s much too sophisticated for that!

  7. My 4 boys do get into bags, but they love boxes (forts) more. Thanks for hosting.

  8. Our cats at home likes to go in spaces where its hard for him to fit and yet he would fit!

      Isn’t it amazing how flexible cats are? I’ve had several cats who have freaked me out by hiding so well I could not find them – including Tsuanami who, as a kitten, used to crawl up under the mattress (so you could not see him when you peeked under the bed) – it took weeks to find his hiding spot!

    Too cute! I’m not used to cats so that would have freaked me out.

    May your blessings outnumber
    The shamrocks that grow
    And may troubles avoid you
    Wherever you go!!!

    Happy St Patricks Day!!

  11. Little Tsunami is so adorable! I love watching them play with bags and different things. Those videos were so cute. 🙂

  12. FABBY says:

    Our Linus loves the cloth shopping bags and is happy to hop inside – after a thorough inspection of the food purchases there within! And I love a curious kitty 🙂

      Magellan is the official bag inspector, box inspector and mail inspector in our house – not a package gets by him (and he is ALWAYS disappointed if there is not a package for him!)

  15. Adorable videos! I was laughing the whole time. My cat, Koko, loves bags too.

  16. ruchira says:

    The video is adorable. 🙂

    Looking good, Tsunami!

    It’s true! Cats sure do seem to love bags. Our angel Graphite used to be obsessed with them … it was always a treat for him after we had gone shopping. 🙂

    Thank you for hosting, Ramona!

  22. Nona says:

    My kitty is not a bag lover. Bags make her run away post haste.

    She still digs boxes though. I guess they are quiet enough for her.

  23. Gattina says:

    Funny videos ! Bags and boxes a paradise for cats !

  24. I used to love watching my cats attack paper bags. MOL!

  25. For my cats it’s boxes. Boxes are the best. Too big, too small, it doesn’t matter. Cupboards are interesting too. I’m paranoid about shutting a cupboard and not knowing a kitty might be in there. A bit late to the linky, but better late then never I say!

  26. Deb Barnes says:

    Cats and bags do go paw and paw, but you are so right about the safety aspect. My Zoey was sniffing around a bag with handles at Christmas time and something spooked her. She ran off in a panic with the bag around her neck and it was so scary. She was okay, but we quickly learned we never use these bags anymore and we are very aware of bags with handles. The same holds true with ribbons – kitties might like to play with ribbons or lick them, but they are EXTREMELY dangerous if ingested.

      Thanks for the reminder to everyone about ribbons!
      As a crafter, I am careful to NEVER leave ribbons around for my cats to play with because all sorts of bad things can happen inside if swallowed!
      I once had a cat dig IN OUR TRASHCAN when we weren’t looking and ingest string that had been used to wrap meat.
      We did not know he had done this until we say this long string coming out the other end – terrifying!
      Thankfully he was okay but NEVER underestimate the trouble a cat can get into (you want those 9 lives to last!)

      So glad Zoey was safe.

  27. Very cute. Always the great picture.

  28. Star Traci says:

    My cats always liked bags. They’re like kids with boxes!

  29. Charlotte says:

    There is something with cats and bags. Felix (our cat) is always curious when a new bag arrives at home. Paper bags are like toys perfect to hide in and play pickaboo. Lovely picture of Tsunami! Thanks for hosting another wordless Wednesday!

    I love these kind of videos… hahahaha Thanks so much for sharing my friend. HUGS

  31. Robin says:

    Such an adorable photo! You’re right, it is fun to watch cats with bags. My kitties have always loved bags 🙂

  32. I wonder why they love them so much, same with boxes!

  33. harriet says:

    I remember having to stock up on paper bags when I had kitties. They are silly 🙂

  34. Feed Me Dearly says:

    Aw, such fun videos – thanks for the giggles! 🙂
    Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  35. Mom used to bring home lots of shopping bags and all of the cats loved them! Be sure to cut the handles off before you give them to your cat though! Love Dolly

  36. Julie S. says:

    Love cats and bags. Mine likes to help put groceries away heh

  37. Jack says:

    Great pic,,,,,,kitty’s eyes match the colors of the bag pretty closely !

  38. Kitties Blue says:

    What precious photos of a young Tsunami. We loved the videos and especially the cat in the backpack. Astrid is our resident bag lady! Thank you so much for being a part of our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop and promoting it here. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  39. mariodacat says:

    Thanks for the excellent reminder on how to be safe around bags. I get to play in bags, but not before M cuts all the handles off. I am also one who does NOT chew on bags. i have no toothies, so I never chew on anything other than food. But your reminders are so important, and we hope everyone pays attention to them.

  40. Ellen Pilch says:

    Beautiful kitty. Cats do love their bags-and boxes 🙂

  41. Annabelle says:

    How adorable!

  42. MOL that was a funny video, Tsunami. I am not a bag-cat, but you sure are 😀 Pawkisses for an Easy Sunday 🙂 <3

  43. Flynn says:

    That is a lovely selfie.

  44. Truffles loves playing in bags of all kinds…always under strict supervision, of course 🙂

  45. Great selfie. We love bags and boxes.

    Honestly, if I came across a cat near a bag and it wasn’t playing in it, I would be concerned. lol It’s sure is a riot to watch. 🙂

  47. Hahaha, my cats love to play with bags. No matter how old they get, still love to crawl into a paper bag. Cracks me up and reminds me why I got them.
