Boxed Mervoober

I know, my catbro Merv looks a little out of it here, but really, he's just a sleepy boy.

Lately he's discovered this shoe box and claimed it for himself. I think the Merv Goober (Mervoober) thinks there's an invisible shield around it that my snout cannot penetrate, and therefore, he is safe.

No snout to the right.

No snout in front.

Ahh. Safe to snooze...

Little does he know that I post myself as sentry near his box... but it makes me sleepy just knowing he's curled up all cozy like right beside me.

It's then that I move in for the covert snuggle.

Wow...I know Mervoober isn't that big, but I find it kinda funny that he squeezes himself in that teeny-tiny shoebox! Or is it that your girl Lisa has GIANT feet and it really is a pretty large sized box????

I like how you went in for that covert snuggle with him!!! So nice!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby Bug

Hiya Stanley!

Mervoober looks so cute curled up in that comfy box. You look mighty comfy too sleeping beside him.

Seeing you guys sleep makes me sleepy too. Gonna catch some snooze soon.

Thanks for sending goober hugs. I'm feeling much better already.

Wet licks

I have heard of cat in the hat and cat in a cradle but NEVER cat in the box! cats are silly!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Stan
Mervoober found a very nice place to sleep! It doesn't look too big but seems like he is comfy!
Have a good night

Grammie said...

Merv looks alot like my Clara. Clara would never fit in that box though. The only dog that she likes here is Moco. They have been pals for many years. I think that is because she is bigger than Moco. Happy day to all of you.

Pacco de Mongrel said...

i think ur kitty needs a bigger box 2 nap

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Stan,
It's male bonding time for two of you huh? How sweet...... :) I hope your girl wasn't too jealous seeing both of you snuggle up together.

Amber-Mae said...

Hehehe, he sure likes that box ha? Must be cozy... But if I see one of my bad bad kitty sis snoozing in a shoe box, I'll definitely chase her out! Hahaha! Coz that's what I do best!

Love licks,

Huskee Boy said...

Hello Stan,
I think Merv needs a bigger box.. maybe you can find something that's big enough for the both of you?
Btw, I still cannot fix Mossie's comments.. for the time being, can you leave her messages in her CBox? She wants me to tell you that she misses you.. (Ack!!)

Balboa & Mommy said...

oh man, how sweet is that. Maybe for Merv's birthday you can get him a bigger box, or maybe one you could both share.

Agatha and Archie said...

Oh my Dog! What if someone puts the top on the box and puts Merv back in the closet? What if someone thinks he is a shoe and tries him on? What if....(we don't have cats in our house so we don't know thses things) Love A+A

PreciOus said...

Hi Stanley, the shoe box looks a little bit small for Merv, but, he seems happy to cuddle inside. =) I lurve your last pic where you snuggle up with Merv. Sooo sweet!


Tadpole said...

Wow - I didn't think he would really fit into that box until I saw the visual proof! He's a cat-tortionist!

Also, I think you should snuggle with your girl too. :-)

Butchy & Snickers said...

Hey Stanley,
Merv does look pretty sleepy, hehehe! Does he stay there when you come to sleep by him? or does he end up moving to another spot?
Hope you have a great Labor Day!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

PS Mama says she's not giving up on Koi Stanley yet. When they lower the pond in about a month to take out the extra goldfish, it will be surprising to see what fish have been in there that you never see. There are tons of young koi right now starting to come up for food that were born in the spring. If Stanley isn't found, then Mama will pick a koi to name Stanley ok??

Casper said...

AWWWW Stanley- you are so nice to snuggle with Mervoober!

wally said...

Awwwww. Don't tell anyone but I want a Mervoover! I lived with some cats at my foster house and I have cat-like behaviors. DON'T TELL!


Henry Helton said...

Now that is very sweet that you like to be next to your brother Merv. You are such a cool woofie. I hope you had a good weekend.

Hercules said...

Oh Stanley!

I am totally bummed we didn't get to see eachother this weekend! We HAVE to get together next weekend or I am going to go zonkers, zonkers, zonkers!!!!!!!

You are too cute with Merv-I should probably meet him someday.

Booty scratches to you and wet kisses to your momma!


Frasypoo said...

Oh Stanley...snuggling with a kitty cat!
You softy..........

Koobuss said...

Oh, that is so nice, Stanley. You are such a gentleman.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Sophie Brador said...

Woah, Stan, I really need some advice. Your knowledge of cats appears to be quite advanced. Maybe you could offer a distance ed course.

coco said...

i have to admit, there are only a few cool cats that i totally dig, and merv is the coolest of them all. he looks so cuddly and cute in that box!!!!

Goofy said...

Ume said...

Girl Girl Hamster said...

fee said...

hey stan, merv is very broad. and i find broad very nice. does he still do his artsy stuff? he looks very much the grumpy but oh-so-talented artist part.

ps: with a body this broad, i should imagine he makes a generous serving of poop every day?

Momo :) said...

Oh my Stanley, Mervoober looks so cute in the box!! So sweet! :)

Thank you so much for your message on my barkday!! I had a goood time with my pawrents!

Momo xoxo

jaffeboy said...

Mervoober look so comfy in that shoe box. If only it can fit the both of you.

Martha said...

Merv looks like he really enjoys catnip. Love, Martha

Finnegan said...

Excellent moves. I approve of the covert snuggle.


Sparky said...

Hehe, I like the pictures! The cats in my family also love to curl up in boxes. Actually, I do too. They're just nice and cozy...


Princess, Tank and Isaac: The Newfs of Hazard said...

Hi Stan! We're gonna be gone the next 2 weekends.

sammawow-china cat-willow said...

Oh, we wish that we had a big boy to watch over us too! Well, it would take some getting used to since we've never met a dog in real life. However we trust Merv!
