Meme, Boxes, and Mischief

My wife and sweetiepie Ariel tagged me for a furry fun meme! Here are the rules:

Go to your Picture Folder on your computer or wherever you store your pictures.
Go to the 6th Folder and then pick the 6th Picture.
Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture.
Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their bloggy tellin' them 'bout it.




hehe, this is a picture of my big brother Brainball sitting on Daddy's desk. The pic is a little bit blurry, but it sure shows off Brainball's toe floof! And he looks furry Lion-Kingly, don't you think?

For the meme, we'll tag anybody who wants to play.

Momma recently got a new pair of hiking boots, and guess who got the box! That's right, us Ballicai. Here's Dorydoo and Brainball sharin it, and as you can see, Brainball's been munchin on it, too. He loves munchin on cardboard.



And here's Marilyn chillaxin on another box (Mom keeps lots of boxes around for us). Marilyn munches on cardboard, too; she just hasn't gotten around to munching on this box.



In the meantime, I was on Daddy's desk nibbling on the phone antenna! But I don't understand Momma. She told me to stop nibblin, but first she had to take a picture of me doin it. Beans! Go figure.



We Ballicai apologize for not blogging and visiting as much. Mom's been really, really busy. Please bear with us, and we'll try to catch up on our visiting as soon as we can! We love and miss all of you, our great furriends.

Marilyn says Thank You to efurryone for making her Gotcha Day so wonderful, warm, and happy.

Boxes are so much fun. We also like paper bags, and the canvas ones from the grocery store. They give lots of opportunities to ambush beans.

That was a great photo of Brainball for your 6th photo:)

Boxes are so great! I'm moving more towards th clothes baskets now because I can see mom between the cracks. I've missed you, but my mom has been pretty tired and busy lately also.

Black Cat said...

SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Brainball, that's just such a lovely Lion-Kingly photo of you and if you would wake me up with tickles from those floofy paws I would be such a giggly, happy Black Cat!

Marilyn, I'm very glad you had a great Gotcha Day. You sure got gotchered by a terrific, loving family:)

MaoMao, be very careful what you chew. Some things have 'lectricity in them, and 'lectricity can bite really, really bad. It likes to nom kitties, "nom nom nom!!!", but I can see your lovely beans know this, so take heed of what they say, coz you are very much loved:) xxx
