Kitten's "New" Home

Okay, so it isn't exactly a new home. I would say that it is more of a "garbage home", since I found it in the garbage.

But let me start from the beginning...

As I am sure you are aware, Kitten absolutely adores loves reveres bags and boxes (see also: here and here).  Here is the most recent exemplification of his infatuation:

But most bags and boxes are so fickle. Bags fall apart or sag so that Kitten cannot get in and boxes are usually temporary fixtures within our apartment, destined to end up in the recycling bin. 

So one day, when I was throwing some garbage down the garbage chute and I saw a perfect Kitten sized box just lying there (people in our building prefer to leave their garbage just outside of the chute as opposed to actually throwing it out), I knew what I had to do. 

I took that garbage box (which by the way was perfectly clean --  it looked like the type of box someone might use to carry their groceries home in) and made it into a Kitten home. At the time, I probably had some intention of painting it to make it look a little less like garbage, but clearly, that did not happen.

Regardless of its appearance, Kitten loves his garbage home:

 Though being Kitten, sometimes he just can't quite figure it out.
