Three Line Tales — The Simple Things

6197F123-82D6-4322-A0C2-4455B35160F4My wife came back from the pet store carrying a cardboard box full of cat toys and goodies for the new kitty we just brought home from the shelter.

My wife took all of the items out of the box and carefully laid them all out on the floor, eager to see which ones the kitty wanted to play with.

My wife watched with dismay as the kitty looked over and sniffed the lined-up goodies, but passed them all up for the cardboard box, which she jumped into and mockingly peered at us just over the box’s top edge.

    Yes, cats prefer boxes to toys but will also take the laundry basket, preferably with laundry in it,

    What an accurate story. Less than 10 seconds when a box is emptied my cat is right there in it or trying to get into it.
