At the swap!

No style post for today, I'm in Boston hanging out with Jen and getting ready for the Swap! I know this is kind of a filler post, which I don't like doing, but it's cute. This is inevitably what happens to every box that enters our house: it turns into a bed, complete with fluffy toys. This picture was taken a week ago, and that ModCloth box is still on our living room floor, because neither of us have the heart to throw it out.

Have a happy Thursday!

Have a good swap!

The kitty in the box looks pissed and like he's not moving from that spot. Ever. My cat is the same way with boxes. Her favorite is to curl up in a box right next to the heating vent. And truthfully, I'd love to join her!
Have a good swap!

The one outside the box looks surprised and a little bit pleading, while the one inside looks pretty hardcore and unshiftable. I love your cats! Cute animals don't constitute filler in my book!

Cats love boxes. All cats.
Speaking of which, have you seen Maru on youtube? He's adorable! There's one that asks the question "Will Maru give up trying to be in the box when the box is too small?" (OF COURSE NOT!) :D

It's especially cute when they try to stuff themselves into boxes that are wayyy too small...

Awh your cats are so cute! One of my cats has such an obsession with lying on things, if theres something to lie on - magazine, laptop, shoe he would rather lie on that than the floor or bed for some reason hha! Also as soon as he sees a box, he will find a way to squeeze into it! Aren't cats just the cutest?! :)

A Stylized Hysteria said...

empty box + cat = cat in box. every single time. I love that they're both staring at the camera, like they know that they are so super cute.

You looked great at the swap! I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to chat; I was in total clothes hunter mode!

Jane said...

Ahah your cats remind mine, always in box, they are so lovely :)


How would be the world without cats ? Without their softness and kindness !

Haha! I have a box pretty much identical on my living room floor right now too. It's just too cute to see my cat sleeping in there, I can't throw it away either!
