Kitties love boxes.

I find it makes them easier to ship.

Cats are almost pathologically driven to sleep in the smallest space they can find. Or at least the most unique one. Place a 3x5 index card anywhere on an otherwise bare floor, and the cat will seek it out and put its butt on it.

You and us both. Our little printshop kitty likes to sleep on keyboards... which really doesn't help us typeset very much...

Yes, what IS that music? I recognize Bill Cosby or a parody of him, but what's the song title and artist?

It's from the YTMND soundtrack.

YTMND Soundtrack - Volume 12 - 03 - Studged - Dr. Dre feat. Cosby

That's all I know. Happy interneting and stuff.

When I was a kid we had like a colony of cats living in our garage (we couldn't keep them inside because of dad's allergies and they weren't fixed so we ended up with a lot of them) and when there were kittens my sister and I would leave the extra milk in our cereal bowls out for them. They would lick the bowls dry and then curl up in them to sleep.

They're all like that. They want us to THINK that they're smart, but they're all just really good at putting up an irrational superiority complex front.

My big orange one (Naruto) is drawn to baskets, boxes, laptops... Lately, I've been finding his giant butt spilling over all sides of a portable typewriter from the sixties. This is because, I think, after much trial and error, he never could get completely inside my sun hat.

Our kitty doesn't like to sit in boxes, oddly enough.

Cute pic. Is that Uncle Grandpa in the background? Looks like a Macintosh Classic or Classic II.

My old kitty, Fang, used to curl up her front legs and sit in the dustpan. It was the cutest thing. But never tell her that, she'd have to claw out your eyes for such blasphemy!

Crazy orange cat.

My cat is just crazy. He likes to hang upside down. But he does love his box-style Scratch Lounge (http://www.scratchlounge.com)

if i could fit inside a shoe box, i think i'd like to sleep in there.

maybe 15 years ago my brother had this plastic toy cabinet in his room. i'd take the toys out of the one shelf and climb in there and close the door.

we had a bookcase that i laid down in too.

and i apparently liked to get inside diaper boxes.

I've got a couple, but I always use my macro on close stuff. This is from a Rebel XTI.
