Cardboard is awesome.  Boxes mean hiding and ambushing and poking each other AND the kittens can chew on the edges and make little puncture points.  Too bad they can’t chew kibble.

The box is from buying a year’s worth of Advantage online for my homecats.  I have a Google calendar reminder to use it every four weeks, and it has cut down on fleas and cut out tapeworm as an issue for the homecats. The Google reminder asks if I want to invite others to this event, and I decline.

I did find one thin nearly dead flea on Melvin yesterday, the first since their first week here.  They get/got flea doping next Friday and last Friday (never this Friday?) and I’ve seen no other evidence of fleas, so it’s not likely a problem.

    Which is better, bags or boxes? How about a bag in a box, or a box in a bag?

    My memory from being a kid was that bags could scoot around and made much better noises, and we could always ambush a kitten and carry the bag somewhere else. But boxes can be modified and support weights such as other boxes and kittens, and the three dimensionality is a powerful drug for kittens of a certain age.

    Idle minds want to know!

      my experience with bags is that, until some undefined age, the urge to pee in the bag will get the best of them. For some reason, that has not been an issue with boxes. Also, with skittish kittens, you need to open the handles or someone will snag on one and the bag will chase them around the room. It’s funny to us, but terrifying for them.
