    Cats are technically wild animals. They are lucky that people find them fascinating.

    It certainly is. We used to have to wait for an appliance delivery to get a good box to play in.

    Back in ancient Egypt, cats were expected to work for a living.

    Every box we get becomes a tunnel or hidey hole. At least for a day. They love it.

    Ludwig and Krazy Kat, the very best of cat cartooning in the history of the funny papers.

    How many of us as kids played with large boxes. Great fun. Boxes, best toys ever.

    Don’t be quick to throw that out. With supply chain problems, there’s an international shortage of cardboard boxes. But the future is bright, and the numbers are expected to grow each year and cornstarch cardboard is coming.

    And look at Target’s new shipping boxes.

    During the 1st year of Covid lockdowns my wife made a bunch of different buildings from cardboard boxes. Very elaborate affairs intricately painted, some with columns, bell towers, widow’s walks and other details. Of course the cats took them over!

    With all their packaging, giant server farms spread throughout the country, huge power demand, and fleet of delivery, trucking and aircraft, Amazon may have the largest carbon footprint of any company in the world.

    Careful Ludie that you don’t get shipped out…

    I can’t throw out some boxes because the cats will take them over, and they look so blissful sleeping in “Hotel Amazon”!

    I was antiquing the other day and was reminded that not so long ago, we didn’t have packaging tape and everything had to be tied up with strings. How did we survive?

    Many years ago, before I became allergic to cats, we had a cat that loved to climb into things like bags and boxes. We would bring home groceries in large paper bags and as we unpacked and put away, we would drop the empty bags on the floor behind us. The cat would inevitably wind up inside one of the bags peaking out.

    All was well until one day I was cooking out using a charcoal grill. I put the last of a bag of charcoal in the grill and dropped the bag. The next thing I knew the cat was peaking out of the empty charcoal bag. I moved quickly to close the deck door before he tried to go inside, yelled for my wife to start water running in the tub, firmly secured the cat, and then headed toward the tub. We then proceeded to bathe the cat, something we all hated. I think that the experience might have soured the cat on climbing into things.

    Why aren’t the conservationists screaming about this? I can’t imagine how many trees are cut down for cardboard and how all the plastic for the packaging that first uses chemicals to make, add are just thrown out because so many of them aren’t recycled…and what it is doing to our eco system!

    For a minute I thought he was comparing Luddie’s box living with homeless camps.

    I think Arlo is telling the cat that his species is living the good life, as well as having all those empty boxes to play in and sleep in.

    Wasn’t this strip about a new toy for Luddie and his species and not about issues with Amazon’s packing and delivery services?
