Nicholas in a Box

Cats love boxes, and Nicholas is no exception. When he’s in a box I believe he believes he’s invisible. Sitting quietly in a darkened space, he almost is. He loves to sit there until some unsuspecting victim walks past (another cat) and then pounces out at them. Problem is when you pounce another creature with equal cat-like reflexes, because they too are a cat, then the effect is a bit lost on the target cat. Fortunately there’s no foul, no hurt, just a quick exchange of spits and hisses and then everybody zooms off in different directions until the next time. Such is life in a house full of cats.
