#boxwatch2015: In which I bring home a box for Thelma

Background: Since she moved in last year, Thelma has frequently fit in boxes but will not sit in them. The one exception has been copy paper boxes. Her fits-and-sits have been few and far between (I did a double-take the first time she did it), and with a copy paper box just sitting in the recycling pile at work, I had to see what would happen. This is our evening.

This look perfectly captures Thelma’s feeling about boxes. Fine, human, I’m in the box – why am I doing this?

She doesn’t get the hype of “If I fits, I sits,” but this box is the perfect mid-living room obstacle for some pouncing practice.

Apologies for the messy living room. One does not plan ahead for such photographic masterpieces.
