International Box Day

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  I was reading over my mom's shoulder this morning as she checked FaceBook, and saw the great news - today is International Box Day!  Now that's a holiday I can totally get behind!  Sadly, I do not have any boxes at the moment.  A man in a very noisy, big truck comes to the house once a week and, among other things, takes all of my boxes away.  What to do?  A Box Retrospective!  How does that sound?  Let's take a stroll down Memory Lane, shall we?

Here I am, in one of my very first boxes:

"Umm... Meow?"

I was about three and a half months old at the time and was already enjoying the comfort of boxes!

Here's one of my most comfortable boxes:

"Oooh, yeah!"

I was about eleven months old there.

Just a few weeks later, just shy of my first birthday, I got this box:


That's my "You've Got To Be Kidding Me" look. I mean ... you call THAT a box?!?

Here is a shot of Cam and me. We found a box growing in a neighbor's garden!

"Jump on in, Cam!"
"Umm... I'll pass, thanks."

Harvest time seems to be in late November.

Here I am in my favorite box of all time:

"I'll get you next time, Red Baron!"

Mom did that with PhotoShop Elements. Isn't it the best?!?

And lastly, here I am in my most recent box:

"Happy International Box Day!!!"

I hope you enjoyed my Box Retrospective! A very, very happy International Box Day to all of my fellow box-lovers out there!  ... and meow!!!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
