Eddie and the Box - September 5, 2014





"Don't look at me that way!"
He seems to say to me.
A discarded cardboard box is just,
The perfect place I like to be!




I've room to give myself a bath,
And to keep intruders far away,
I can even hone and sharpen claws,
And nap comfortably throughout the day.

    1. It's funny...these cats prefer dry food and shark, which Rosy get daily from the fish market in the bazaar.

    1. Nice to have you visit, Sandee. These Mumbai kitties, all rescued from the streets, are the cats meow. I am pretty allergic to cats but I have grown accustomed to these.

    1. Eddie likes anything - boxes, bags, trash cans. I've never seen a nosier cat. Of course, except for here, I've never spent time with felines.

    1. I guess those treks in the jungle do get a bit tiring. I hope you got a good rest, for your next journey into the world of mushrooms, insects and spirits.

    1. Thanks for your visit. The three cats here are really lucky, saved from the streets by my friends who also go out every night to feeds strays in the neighborhood. They even paid to have several neutered.

    1. It's been a whole new experience sharing a home with three cats. Eddie is the most interesting, with his antics, and I always have my camera at the ready.

  8. Oh you kitty is darling. Cats do seem to love boxes so much. It's so funny because they squeeze into the smallest boxes if they can. Thanks for visiting my blog. I had fun visiting yours.

    1. You're right, Ida...the smaller, the better it seems. I saw the cutest picture on the internet, of a leopard, at the zoo, in a box. I guess it's a cat thing, wild or tame.

    1. Thanks, Indrani. I've never been much for cats...probably because I'm allergic to them..and my friends, with whom I'm living, have these three. They all tolerate me but Eddie, because he is so inquisitive, is my favorite.

    1. The weekend was nice, though it did pour nonstop. I didn't really venture out, just read a good book by one of my favorite authors, Lisa See.

    1. I guess I shouldn't rub it in but, even here in India, this San Franciscan was glad we beat the Cowboys. Thanks for visiting my blog.

      I might just buy an asus when I need a new laptop. I hear they are good ones. However, my brother has worked for IBM for 25 years so I usually go Lenovo.

  18. Hehehe - it is amazing how cats always find such confined and unusual spaces, isn't it?! They are very lovable creatures.
