Kitties like boxes.....

And so do Kittyboys! (For my Facebook friends, if there are no pictures in this post, look in the "Playhouse" album)


We got a dishwasher Tuesday (woohoo! Dishwasher!) and so now we have this HUGE box with the bottom flaps cut off, and what can you do with such a thing but make a toddler playhouse? Husband cut a door that's still attached on one side, so it opens and closes (and opens, and closes, and opens, and closes, and opens, and closes..........) and on the opposite side, he cut out two windows using the outlines of the warning labels as a guideline. It has its own furniture (a little red chair) and flooring (a carpet sample), and he loves it. He told me I had to come inside ("You 'ouse!") and upon realizing that I fit about as well as Alice in the White Rabbit's house, changed his mind ("You out! You out!"). Currently, Elmo is sitting in the chair and Kittyboy is sitting on the carpet sample, having graciously given his guest the one piece of furniture. He's a very good host.

One of my favorite books when I was a girl was "Christina Katerina and the Box" http://www.amazon.com/Christina-Katerina-Box-Patricia-Gauch/dp/0698116763

He looks like he's having a fantastic time!

Oh my gosh, we need that book! That looks wonderful, thanks for the link!
When he got up from his nap, he immediately rolled out of bed and went back into his house! "me 'ouse!" He even had his snack in there - sharing with Elmo, I assume.
