Furry Boxmas to All

25 December 2021

  • Muffin the tabby liked lots of catty things: string, catnip, napping. But he didn’t like boxes. All the other cats couldn’t get enough of them, sitting in them, slapping them, chewing them. Muffin didn’t get it. Until one night when he learned the true meaning of Boxmas.

  • Muffin let out a soft mew of amazement. As the soot cleared, he saw the granddaddy of all kitty myths standing in front of him: Sandy Claws. “Um, why are you wearing a Hawaiian shirt? Where’s your red suit?” Muffin asked. “It’s not like I live at the North Pole,” Sandy scoffed.

  • “On the contrary,” Sandy said “you’re living the snowbird life with me. Palm trees all winter, what do you say?” Muffins eyes welled with tears—she’d waited her whole life to hear those words. She zipped her bag with her teeth and said with finality, “I’ll pack the sunscreen.”
