International Box Day!



Oh yeah!  Boxes!   Not very many animals don’t enjoy a good box…………….guinea pigs, dogs, cats, birds, mice, and on and on and on.   So today is all about the joy of boxes and animals all over the blogosphere are celebrating.   Kitties Peaches and Paprika, and woofie Luke are sponsoring the celebration!

As for me, I have to admit that while I used to be MAJORLY big on boxes, a few years ago I changed from spending a lot of time in them to just saving them for special occasions – like Christmas for instance!   I’m in and out of every box in sight on Christmas morning!

Hey! Get these presents out of the box so I can have it for a racecar!

Boxes with toys are even better!

Love those boxes!

Bring on the boxes!

I also have been known to get in a “modified box” – which is what my Derby Car was made of when we had a race at Cat Scouts last year……yep – my Dad made me a car out of a box – it was grand – although I  was a little afraid to get in it – Mom had to PUT me in it so I could have my photo taken and get credit at Scouts for being IN my racecar entry!   That was about the time Mom and Dad realized I was not QUITE as interested in boxes as I used to be.

One sweet ride yes?  My Dad made it for me for Cat Scouts!!

Mom had to HOLD me in my car to qualify  me in the race - how embarrassing!

In addition to celebrating it HERE, I’m also celebrating it at the Tabby Cat Club………..that’s right – we tabbies love our boxes too!    In fact,  at the Club’s page today, all the members of the Club are going to be following a link to my blog where they will pick up this FABULOUS Participation Badge that I made for the TCC – so, if you’re here, and you’re a TCC member – grab your badge!!!!!



I hope everyone has a lot of fun today  with their chosen boxes……………….just think how many animals around the world are celebrating ONE DAY to enjoy the coziness of a box!

  1. Hi Sammy, We are still giggling here about how your mom had to hold you in the special car so you could get a picture for Cat Scouts. he he – you did better than I did cuz I didn’t even have a car. Loved your post today.


    • We’re getting that kind of rain too Miss Pix – EVERY DAY AND EVERY NIGHT…….we’re thinking ark isn’t a bad thing to begin working on!!!!! BYE BYE BILL – take a hike dude because we’re tired of rain!

      Hugs, Sammy


  2. Happy International Box Day! Those boxes certainly are fun yes! Nice that you mom was helping you, I think, in your derby car. Thanks for the participation award for the TCC.


  3. I had never seen your derby car- that is so cute 🙂 I love the photo with you and your Mom. I already went to the TCC and commented on that post too.


    • It was quite a car – my Dad worked on it a whole lot. For some reason (Dad thought maybe because the box was on wheels) I would NOT go in it so Mom had to HOLD me in it. How embarrassing!

      Hugs, Sammy


  4. We love box day….so many fun posts. We loved your Cardwood Derby car. Raz didn’t want to get into his either…..then, after the event was over, he started sleeping in it when Mom watches TV.

    Happy Box Day!

    • Isn’t it funny that we cooperate on most things only when we WANT to? Mom was disappointed in me rejecting that fabulous car Dad made me…..but I was the one who was embarrassed about it NOT her! HAHA I’m glad you’re still enjoying your car Raz……….

      Hugs, Sammy


  5. Wow! We got a participation badge! We soooo excited! We’ve posted in places on special days before but never got one of those before! We so happy. Thank you so much, Sammy! Piewhackits is tickled more pink than she already is 🙂 Most of us love boxes too. The one time that sticks in our memory of Mumsy trying to get one of us to stay in a box, we heard her saying something about “strapping tape” but, we all ran off so we don’t know what she was talking about. Hey…that’s how you do the derby cars?!?!? Well, okay! We might can do that. Enjoy those boxes, we sure are – later! P.S., Oh, and thank you for hosting this fun on the TCC!


    • Hi Kwees! Last year we had a “Cardwood Derby” event at Scouts……we all had time to make our cars, then we had a race – Denmaster awarded prizes but I only got a consolation prize because Mom couldn’t get a photo of me IN my racecar…alone….I was so embarrassed! It was a fun event though…you should have SEEN some of the racecars – they were amazing!!!! Glad you had fun with Box Day – AND glad you like your participation badge! I like making those………

      Hugs, Sammy


  6. That derby box sure was a great one, Sammy. We are much more into what is IN that box than our getting in the box. Our favorites are the ones that come from Mr. Chewy.

    Happy weekend -hope there is some bacon in your future.

    • Yes indeed……..pressies are the bestest part of a Christmas box….although the tissue and ribbon are pretty fun too – sometimes better than the pressie!

      Hugs and nice to meet you Matilda!


    • I know Wally….women are wishy-washy…..and they’re persnickety…..good thing we men can stick together yes?? So happy you had fun at the Sabers Den last night… was PAWSOME!!

      Love, Sammy


  7. Sammy, mes with yous, mes not as interested in boxes either. Mommy dumped mes in the box and mes jumped out, so she putted mes in again and mes jumped again, So she gotted her phone ready and then put her hand on me head and then took my picture – fast – before mes jumped out. Koz and Jo Jo would has nothing to do with it!


  8. You look like a squeee gift Sammy! Love the box car. Even in Australia we are celebrating box day. Fozziemum has an entry! 😀 ❤
