In March I received a beautiful gift; a quilt made by my Dear Auntie in San Antonio. Our Emmi also received a gift, the box in which the quilt had been mailed. Emmi loved her box and we didn't have the heart to throw it away. So, for all these months, the box has belonged under the coffee table in the family room, where Her Emminess could cuddle up whenever she wanted.
Over the past couple of weeks, however, we have noticed that she has been avoiding cuddling in her nest. Emmi is funny in that she prefers clean, flat places to take her feline snoozes. Milo will find anything cozy- blanket, pillow, lap- for his naps. Emmi likes paper, the floor, the windowsill. Her box, evidently, was no longer as clean and spare as she liked.
A recent order from Amazon has provided us not only with the book that we ordered for Bekah, but a new box for the Emmster. Tonight as we watched the News we found that she was once again contentedly curled up in her box.
Ahh... New Box Smell.... Gotta love it.
