Cat Box

Says Padraic C.: "My parents were taking out some recyclables, when a few old cardboard boxes fell off the stack. By the time they got back from the end of the driveway, they saw this"


OMG, are you for Reals, Padraic?!?

If you have cats, you may have noticed this box-squatting behavior. This is some extreme box-squatting... but at least they don't have to fight over them(!) btw - I don't believe this was a random sight after a recycling truck [Read More]

I love it! My Bubba likes to be driven (pushed) around in his box...

 |  May 25, 2006 at 09:41 PM

but only if you make motor sounds (brrrrrrm, brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrm)

They look like they are getting ready for a kitty soap box derby or are in airplanes, getting ready to taxi down the runway.

I love it!

Cats are weird.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 09:50 PM

I love this kind of soap box derby - challanging the skills of the drivers by covering both the asphalt and dirt tracks.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:01 PM

That is so hilarious and SWEET!!!!!

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:02 PM

Cats-n-Cardboard. Never fails.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:06 PM

That has to be the funniest thing I've seen since the dog stuffed into the cat's basket


 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:09 PM

eeeeeeee!!! :D

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:22 PM


I love kitties!!!

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:24 PM

Isn't there some law of physics that states that all boxes contain cats?

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:27 PM

Haha, they're all looking different directions kind of mysteriously -- it's like they're posing for an album cover photo.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:27 PM

Siirenias -- well, you know, if you have a bunch of closed boxes, you can't confidently deny that each and every one could have a cat in it ;)

Padriac's Parents had recycle paper -
A stack that resembled a smallish skyscraper.
The recycle truck was soon to arrive,
So they wrangled the stack to the end of the drive.

Padriac's Pop hollered "Bend at the knees!",
As the mountain of boxes swayed in the breeze.
Once they got started they couldn't well stop,
And the boxes on top were now starting to drop!

It's a good thing Padraic had trained all the cats
From very small kittens to quickly react,
In case of a breeze-triggered paper stack sway
To prevent the dropped boxes from blowing away!


 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:34 PM

Soooo cute! I love cats in boxes. My roommate's cat once disappeared into one of my cardboard file boxes and tried to play peek-a-boo with me through the handle hole!

 |  May 25, 2006 at 10:35 PM

For some it isn't Christmas they look forward to, but the day after Christmas - here we see the Von Pelts enjoying their yearly Boxing Day tradition, taking part in their annual corrugated festivities.

Michelle, that is the best poem since Dr. Seuss. How did I ever consider my life complete before cute overload????

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:00 PM

It's weird 'cos it doesn't look like they're doing anything other than just sitting around and chillin' in the boxes. Which, I suppose, is a sensible enough thing to do, but it does look a bit funny. Such is the feline nature.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:02 PM

Oh my god, thats great. My cat would be right there with 'em.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:03 PM

*Jaw drops at Michelle's poem*

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:08 PM

strange* Cats are weird!!! Ya gotta love em.

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:24 PM

I wonder if anyone else thinks this pic is very surreal?

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:44 PM

It is kinda surreal... I did a search on "cats" and "surreal":
I hope I don't have any giant cat dreams, unless they're benevolent. :) Time to go honk-shu!

 |  May 25, 2006 at 11:52 PM

I love this photo so much !!! Perhaps it's got to do with their curiosity and their territorial nature, so each one got one box of their own. So cute.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 12:08 AM

that is hilarious!

 |  May 26, 2006 at 12:24 AM

i wonder how long it took for a car to round the corner.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 12:36 AM

When my mom and her husband are getting ready for a trip, and they have their mid-pack suitcases open on the bedroom floor, Tommy the Cat has to go and sit in each on for a little while.

I think it's some kind of cat law...

...Yes. This is so cute. Cats + boxes = happiness.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 01:19 AM

lmao, that's fantastic! i'd be so be there too, fighting over one of the boxes. there's a massive printer box in our office right now, and the temptation to crawl in and snuffle around a bit is irressistable.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 01:39 AM

Eat your heart out, Erwin Schroedinger!

 |  May 26, 2006 at 01:55 AM

Fantastic shot! Absolutely catastic, actually.

And hooray, indeed! Michelle, that's the best poem ever!

 |  May 26, 2006 at 02:14 AM

hilarious! :D

 |  May 26, 2006 at 03:18 AM

I thought about Schrodinger, too, scubaPSU.

Here's an interactive version of the quantum puzzle.


 |  May 26, 2006 at 03:25 AM

Will you snorgle it here or would you like a box with that kitteh?

It seems like the kitteh delivery truck dropped a few boxes when they passed that bump.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 03:33 AM

Just wanted to inform you, that Cute Overload was mentioned mentioned in a Finnish newspaper V. http://www.vee.fi/lehti/muut/selaus_2/

 |  May 26, 2006 at 03:43 AM

Cats just lurves them boxes!
Go on, spoil YOUR cat today.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 03:53 AM

hahaha. that's so hilarious!

i can only imagine how weird and goofy that must have been to come back to for them.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 04:32 AM

Kittehs do just love boxes, but lets not forget their great fondness for shopping bags and drawers! I can almost here them saying "I've got dibs!" as they each claim a box.

 |  May 26, 2006 at 04:32 AM

*shakes head*
*looks at the screen*
*shakes head again*

human goes "baroo?"

 |  May 26, 2006 at 04:42 AM

very David Lynch-esque
great pic!

 |  May 26, 2006 at 05:06 AM

Unbelievable... what instinctiveness to sit there in those RING RING.... er.... boxes and think it's a place to BANANAPHONE.... oh.....OH THE HUMANITY OF IT ALL, I CAN'T GET THAT DUMB SONG OUT OF MY HEAD. MEG.... YOU'VE POISONED ME!!!! GAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

 |  May 26, 2006 at 05:08 AM

"I think it's some kind of cat law..."

I put forth the theory that the Position of Cats at any given time is what controls the force of gravity, the speed of light, laws of quantum mechanics and, of course, Murphy's Law. This is why you may observe a cat wake suddenly from a nap in one room and race frantically into another, only to plop down and commence yet another nap. They KNOW where they need to be to keep all the particles in the Universe spinning as they should.

What you are looking at is the patented No-Fail Cat Trap. Have wild cats that you are attempting to lure and capture? Fear no more. Simply place the No-Fail Cat Trap in strategic locations near their habitat, and presto! the cats cannot resist its lure. You will catch them every time. We guarantee it or your money back!

The No-Fail Cat Trap relies on the myterious allure of the Boxed Cardboard construction to the feline.

On second thought, the other question is--dundundundun--

*How* many cats do Padraic's family have?

What number of cardboard boxes could have been dropped and still filled by cats?

The mystery continues...
