I love it when books arrive in the mail.
But there is a LOT of packaging. From an environmental point of view, that is bad. From a reader’s point of view, it is exasperating. Some boxes and mailers can opened with ease, others require scissors and swearing. And what to do with the packaging? When DH is away, I smuggle it out to the recycling bin, à la I Love Lucy. Why? He thinks everything should now be on the e-reader.
But there are others who revel in book mail days.
The white cat comes first to investigate.
Why would anyone throw that box out? Hm, I could use that.
Fascinated by a book mailer, the black cat wonders if she can tear off the tab of paper at the top.
The white cat continues her investigation with the black cat’s help.Oh, lord, they say of the smushed cardboard mailer in the middle. That is completely useless!
A black kitten joins them and pushes her way into the box.. She doesn’t know there is a hierarchy.
They watch with amazement as she hops into the box.
The big black cat walks away while the black kitten sits in the box and the white cat goes back to the other packaging.
Then the white cat lies down to take a nap.
Nothing has been recycled yet! How could it be? This is the only mailer not in demand at the moment! (By the way, this one was easy to open.)
Why DO we bother buying them toys?! This way, we get books & the cats gain a toy. Hours of enjoyment for everyone.
You are so right!:)
Cats and kids – both happier playing with packaging than with the toys we get them! 🙂
Yes, toys are pointless. Much more fun to zip around the house with items from the trash or recycling bin!

This is so funny! I just posted a photo of our cat, Turtle, in a box! (http://planetjoan.blogspot.com) She really likes this box better than others she’s had because it’s fairly shallow. She can be in the box and look out over the edge. Your household looks like ours used to. At one point, we had nine cats. Now we’re down to just one – and don’t anyone try to get me to adopt your kittens!
The more cats the merrier! They do love those boxes. I’m off to see your cat in the box.
