A-tissue, Excuse Me!

I was putting some groceries away earlier this morning. One of my kitties Bella loves to have a nose at what I've bought. I put a twin pack of tissues on the coffee table. She loves boxes and takes delight in sitting in them. She decided it would be cosy to sit on the tissues and gave me a glare as though to say 'don't you dare move me'. Fortunately they hadn't been opened or I would have had to throw some away. If I'm reading she'll jump up on my lap so I can't read anymore. At times she'll try and do some typing when I'm creating a discussion on mylot. Lol! That's why there's so many typos in my work. . Bella has a brother named Max but she is definitely the boss of him, my husband and I. The photo is of Bella looking very stubborn.

Here is a stray that walked in and stayed with us for sometime until he fell ill and refused treatment and so walked away from our life.

Lol, I make typos sometimes so that's my excuse. My other cat Max has one eye. The other had to be removed after an injury he sustained after being missing for three weeks.

What a beautiful cat! Mine is not mad about boxes yet. Maybe she was not allowed to go into them in her previous home. I am coaxing her to have fun with them though each time I have one empty. I thought all cats had fun with boxes and bags but she is an exception up to now.

Perhaps she needs time. I found mine sitting in one of my larger handbags lol.

@Gillygirl I think that in her last home she was probably 'scolded' often and until she realises that she can go everywhere here, then she probably will not do certain 'cat' things. I am careful not to leave important things anywhere that she could damage them but if I leave a scarf somewhere then it is not her fault if she decides to sleeo in it but mine for leaving it where she can get to it. We will get a balance really soon I'm certain though!

@arthurchappell Yes his vision in fine but he has turned into a nervous cat. I don't know where he went when he was missing for three weeks.

LOL- I had to pick her up. She was most indignant. The tissues are now out of reach. She can now smell roast beef cooking and is giving me a plaintive meow.

Perhaps Bella just likes the box of the tissue. I heard cats like boxes? If it is bigger, perhaps she will prefer to stay inside

They are fun to have around. Bella will have the box when it's empty and will lose interest.

She does have that 'I dare you' look on her face. Why would you throw them out if they were opened and she was sitting on them?

Bella is a very pretty cat and she should be able to sit where she wants. After all she is queen of the house and you should treat her like she is.

Lol, she is very pretty but I needed the tissues so I picked her up. She was given another box to play with so I guess she is the Queen.
