Thankful Thursday

Kitties!

One favorite thing we're thankful for is our fleece-lined box tops.  The tops are from paper ream boxes, Mommy brings them home from work.  They are supposed to be for Daddy's business because they hold four rows of cassette tapes perfectly--BUT--they hold one feline even better!
Daddy has several boxes in his office.  You can see that they fit Cats of all sizes...Small(ish), Medium, and...

LARGE. 
Thank Cod cardboard has some give to it.

Mommy sews the fleece liners to fit the tops, and she puts a folded towel underneath the fleece so our little Cat bodies are properly cushioned and coddled. 
Daddy, who is the arty one around here, ordered the fun fabric off the innernets!
Some of the box tops have heaty pads in them, which is only right and fitting.  Although the one by the sofa is an unheated location.  Which is OK by Johnny--with such thick fur he gets too hot.

We occasionally reward Mommy and Daddy's efforts with a little Extreme Cuteness. 
(Not to be confused with Everyday Cuteness.)

Extreme Cuteness is exhausting, so we don't do it too often.  Also, it doesn't pay to spoil your Peeps.
Sweet Dreams, John...

What are YOU thankful for?


Happy Thursday!

  1. We are impressed by the fleece-lined box top beds! But we will stick with the big waterbed, and the cat trees. Yours are sure prettier though!

  6. Here's a possible lazy version - find a pillowcase with fabric you like and slide it over the box and squish it down. It won't be as pretty as this, but would probably work.

    Thread the heat pad cord out the open end.

  10. Wow, those cat beds are pawsome. The mom will have to try it out even though she HATES sewing. Maybe we will ignore them when she's done...or set the house on fire.

  11. I am very nearly blinded by the Extreme Cute-titudes of these pictures, but not so blinded that I don't see those cool boxtops and wonder why the Human doesn't make some of those for ME.

  18. I got totally lost around step 5a and had to have a lie down (with statutary cat accompaniment) I am impressed nonetheless and now feel inferior with regard to heating pads! I have always insisted human thigh is all the heating Austin needs! Was I mistaken?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Those definitely are worth being thankful for! You have the best humans on the planet, guys, we hope you realize that. :-)

    Happy Solstice!

  20. it's too bad your dad doesn't sell eight track tapes. i bet those boxes would be even plusher.

    ReplyDelete

  26. Your kitties are some of the most pamPURRed we've ever seen! You are very special beans indeed. Most folks don't spoil even a single cat as much as you do your thirteen.

    I must say you certainly have your PURRiorities straight!

    Merry Christmas to you all, efurry one!

  27. Mum read this and showed us and then we heard her offering prayer saying "thank goodness I don't have any box lids". Is she hard hearted or what!!

  30. I think fleece lined boxes would be a good idea as my two manically shred the bases out of any cardboard boxes we leave for them! A New Year's project for me perhaps. xx

  31. Those do look very comfy. It's a shame that #1 is so totally useless with a needle...
