Friday Pet Blogging | The Empty Tissue Box

My first official post since my voluntary hiatus would be about the cats (or one of them), wouldn't it?
When I arrived home from rehearsal tonight, Otis kept making some noise near the kitchen bench. No, he wasn't sick again. This was more of a percussive thing. "Just what the heck is he doing over there?" we wondered.
Well, we were pretty curious. And since this was interrupting the story I was trying to tell Mrs. Brainwise, we pretty much decided to drop the story and investigate. Turns out the noise was just Otis batting a Puffs box. You see, he just had to have that empty tissue box that was sitting in the recycling lid[1]. More accurately, he just had to try to get inside of it. And as you can see, he was pretty happy with his efforts:

"You are no match for me and my Puffs Box!"

I'm pretty glad I had the camera-phone handy. I might be even happier if that had not been my last box of tissues. (It really wasn't).

The Modulator has a compilation of today's pet posts from other bloggers. Previous Milo & Otis appearances on Prophet or Madman are indexed here ... just in case you missed one. And do keep your eyes peeled for the next installment of the Carnival of the Cats, served fresh every Sunday.


[1] In case you didn't know, a recycling lid is a box lid used to collect ... um ... recyclables such as cardboard. At least, that's what it is in our kitchen.

Hee hee...Too cute.

I know what you mean about having a camera handy. I always miss Nosey's "conquests" (i.e. socks that she drags up from the basement).

I am Otis, and I shall rule from the Castle of Puffs! All shall bow before my cuteness!

Gotta love what cats do when you're not looking, or at least they don't think you're looking.
