Feline Friday: Sometimes i wonder, too.

Feline Friday is hosted by Steve, The Burnt Food Dude, and i'm going to believe it's because he likes cats.
Feline Friday is simple to join. All you have to do is..
1) post a picture, drawing, cartoon or video of a cat (They may be silly or cute)
2) go to Steve's page, linked above, then on the menu bar click on the Feline Friday tab to get the code
3) paste the code under your cat picture
4) add your name and link
That’s all there is to it! Be sure to check back every so often and visit all the Feline Friday bloggers. Also, please leave a nice comment on their blogs. Nasty comments will be deleted!

  2. Awwww, sweet photo, and cats love boxes! Even the big cats like tigers...however, they, of course, require much larger boxes. :)

  3. I suggest curling up and getting comfortable. Or perhaps hunkering down and pouncing on some unsuspecting litter mate as they walk by. Boxes have a lot of paw-tential!
