Where There’s A Will There’s A Way

As the snow drifts down on a cold winter’s day

I’m looking for someplace that’s cozy to stay.

I wanted this box but it wasn’t quite right

I tried to squeeze in but it put up a fight.

I found some new digs and they weren’t too shabby

But the color I think was suited more to a tabby.

So I went out in search of a new resting place

One I was hoping would better complement my face.

Next I found this neat bag but alas, what a plight

There was a cold draft and the fit was too tight.

I gave it the good college try for a while

But, in the end, it just wasn’t my style.


I tried a new box thinking it couldn’t go wrong

And for a while the urge to nap there was quite strong.

The problem I think is my standards are high

And the urge for a blanket I just couldn’t deny.


At last I took residence in another cat’s carrier

The fact it’s not mine really isn’t a barrier.

So now here I am and it’s here I will stay

For as I often declare, “Where there’s a will there’s a way.”


If I Fits I Sits

Dear Human,

Today’s PSA is intended to remind you of one of the many cardinal feline rules: if you can fit in it, you can (and should) sit in it. And no, nothing is off limits.

Here are eleven occasions I was 10 times cozier than you ever will be:

1. This paper bag

Never underestimate a good paper bag

2. This basket

Yes, I am comfortable, thanks for asking

3. More paper bags

Not only am I cozy, I’m also getting a free ride

4. Baskets, baskets, baskets

Yes, I do love this basket. Why do you ask?

5. You can never really have too many paper bags

You should be jealous of how cozy this bag is

6. This napping basket

Is there really any better napping location?

7. The pharmacy

I told you. Nowhere is off limits

8. Surgery drapes

What? Did you want to sterilize these?

9. Boxes

Need I say more?

10. Another napping basket

You truly never can have enough of these

11. Really any box anywhere

I’m sorry, did you need to use the xray table?

Jealous yet? You should be.



PS Cats are also liquids. This is another cardinal rule.

I <3 Boxes

Dear Human,

If you read my previous post, The Truth About Boxes, then you should know that part of my mission here at PLVH involves acquiring as many boxes as possible. I take charge of receiving all shipments here so that I can have first pick of the boxes. This is a task that is very near and dear to my heart. I have countless uses for the boxes including, but not limited to, napping, hiding, snoozing, playtime, and building impenetrable fortresses.

Much to my dismay, I ran into some snags during my last acquisition. The postman left the box outside the door as he was directed, but it was quite a heavy shipment and I found trying to drag it inside on my own to be quite exhausting. I tried to round up help, but no one was responsive to my plight.

I hope they know that they are solely responsible for my sleepless night.

Despite the displeasing delay, operation “Box Takeover” was eventually completed. I think the humans have begun to realize they were remiss in causing the delay, as they have been trying to cater to my every need ever since.

The bottom line is that I have prevailed and the box is mine. Forever.

Comfortable after all,
