Big cat, small box

I have been performing an experiment where I place progressively smaller shoeboxes upon my futon and wait to see how long it takes for a cat to curl into it. Unfortunately, it appears I have reached the end of the experiment: This box sat on the futon for about a day before Mencken decided to test it out. Mencken tried his best, turning around and around and around in the box, but finally couldn't manage anything but doing the catloaf while hanging his head over the front.

So now you know the limits of what a 14 pound cat can fit in: A sneaker box is it. I have a smaller box that sandals came in, but somehow doubt it will get anything more than a sniff from the feline brigade.

  1. They brought an absurdly small box Friday to take away his lil body, Fit just fine what with being all floppy and dead...


Ground rules: Comments that consist solely of insults, fact-free talking points, are off-topic, or simply spam the same argument over and over will be deleted. The penguin is the only one allowed to be an ass here. All viewpoints, however, are welcomed, even if I disagree vehemently with you.

WARNING: You are entitled to create your own arguments, but you are NOT entitled to create your own facts. If you spew scientific denialism, or insist that the sky is purple, or otherwise insist that your made-up universe of pink unicorns and cotton candy trees is "real", well -- expect the banhammer.
