My son, Marc, used to tell me how much Kush liked getting into boxes – shoe boxes were her favorite. Of course, her exposure was largely shoe boxes. Here’s Kush in Victoria where I first witnessed her box obsession.
When she came to live here, I saved a couple of shoe boxes for her, but she wasn’t that interested. Apparently the mistake was in thinking that I could choose for her. She likes to do that herself. If a parcel arrives, it is important to empty the box as quickly as possible, since the cat needs to try it out for size.
Recently we purchased a sous vide machine. Kush liked the box and the sous vide container – empty or with the cover I sewed for keeping it clean.
Kush considers any basket or contoured surface as fair game.
I’ve lost the battle with regards to keeping Kush off the kitchen counter. My strategy is to wipe things down before I start food prep – and remind myself the cat won’t be here forever. Kush discovered a large mesh kitchen strainer that was a good fit.
