My cat is a freakazoid.

I know, I know. Two Sekhmet posts in one day. But truly, she has been bonkers lately. The Goober's been chasing her and it makes her crazy.

When the husbeast and I were little, we always loved playing with boxes. So these days, when we get boxes in the mail, we give them to the Goober to play with. She eventually trashes them, and we throw them away. That said, we've often got two or three boxes sitting around in the living room. Lately, Sekhmet has been enamored of one in particular:

She gets into it all the time, sits there, circles around, and eventually gets back out again.

Today she figured out what she wanted to do with it: Lay down. Mind you, this is a fifteen pound cat crammed into this box. I'd have sworn there was no way she'd fit in there, until I turned around, and there she was.



I think she's defying the laws of physics, somehow. Or else she'll collapse into a black hole, soon, and have her own gravitational field. Light is starting to bend around her.

My cats do the same thing. They try to fit into the smallest box possible. Unfortunatley the dog likes to chew cardboard so the cats don't get to sit in them much anymore.

I love a well-packed cat! I make woven paper baskets for them to nest in, and the snugger, the better. Sometimes there's a muffin-top effect with a small fold of cat fat lapping over the basket edge. When I grab the camera, I get the stink eye and a quick shift of position.

LOL! Makes them easier to pack, I guess... can't you just imagine a cat depot, filled with boxes of cats, ready to be shipped out?

Oh that's just precious... that could be as close as that animal ever gets to cute! (And she can do half-time shows at football games too!)

Cats make their own laws of physics.

I love Sekhmet. I really do. She reminds me of my cats and my mama's cats (of which there are many). As usual, your VK knitting review was spot on and hilarious. I always look forward to reading your blog. I'm glad you finally have found a solution to your migraines and are working out something for the chronic pain. My love has chronic pain so I dance a little dance for him when he feels some relief. I hope you are doing well today. :)

OMG! I have never seen a picture of Sekhmet from that angle. She is my cat Lucille! (lived to the ripe old age of 20)She had that exact same white skunk mark down her back!

I love the fatty kitties, the fatty kitties like cardboard, therefore I need to order more stuff to inspire my cat to be fatter.

I've done worse math...
