New Box Sunday Selfie and Mr Octopus

Happy Sunday!

I recently got a new box. I haven't had one for a long time.

Because of the virus, Mum is very careful with anything that comes into the house. She wipes our shopping down and the parcels that arrive get wiped down too - the boxes as well.

The box above is not an Amazon box, as you can tell, but from a shop called Superdrug in the UK. Mum buys some beauty and skincare products from them. Their own brand isn't tested on animals.

Anyway, after wiping down the box with another great cruelty-free product - this scent-free antibacterial spray by Astonish, Mum took the box up to the spare room and left it there for a few days before giving it to me.

I'd like you to meet Mr. Octopus. Mum got him for me as an early Christmas present. Do you notice anything odd about him?

He's an octopus but he seems to be missing 2 legs.

A six-legged Octopus?! Maybe he has special abilities and powers! Tee hee hee. He sure seems smitten with you, too. Chin nuzzles.

He must be a hexopus! You are having a lot of fun with him.
I am the same with all my deliveries. They get put in the garage where the boxes are sprayed with anti viral spray then the contents and also all groceries are wiped down with antibac wipes. You cannot be too careful.

I love your Octopus, maybe he has super powers and only needs 6???

He! Hee! Purrhaps the picture of the Octopus was taken after you or another cat had a romp with him and that is how he lost his legs! Its a GREAT toy! And we have a new box too! Cinnamon got a brand new bed (which she ignores) and we got the box! It is fabulishious!

Poor Mr. Octopus. I am sure you will take good care of him so he doesn't lose any more legs. :) XO

Hmmm... can it really be an octo (8) pus with only six legs? In any case, you did have lots of fun playing with it, Athena.

That's a great box, Athena! And yeah, that octopus seems to be a hexapus. MOL!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Oooh, a hexapod-o-pus! Or some thing along those lines, MOL
Nice box! Mrs H seldom gets boxes these days as she tries to recycle all the plastic bags for the shopping, and theres no way I can get into a Felix box without splitting the sides, MOL
Purrs for a great week.

I noticed his legs right away! Too funny!

You got an octopus with only 6 legs ? I swear it was not me who sewed it together, because I am also very bad in calculation !!

XmasDolly said...

Awwww Your kitty is so adorable and playful too. I loved watching him play... too cute! Your tunes are all new to me! Goodness, where have I been hiding under a rock? hahaha Your tears for fears is a semi familiar tune. I remember hearing Adam (darn can't remember his last name - from AGT) singing that tune. Awesome! Your other tunes are very cool too, some familiar, some not! Thanks so much for joining us! Please give Athena a treat from me! Adorable kitty! Great choice of tunes!
