Bernie is a stubborn animal. He is not about to let anyone else's actions interfere with his own happiness. And I admire him for that.

Here he is:

He decided he wanted to nap in that box. It didn't matter that he's too big for it. It did matter that he spilled out over the edges of it. He made his decision.

Of course I couldn't just let him be. When I walked passed him, I would pour him out of the box and on to the couch. Bernie would lift his head up, blink slowly and gradually assess the situations. Then he would sleepily climb in back into is card board box. We kept up this routine until I left town. I guess that means he won.

That reminds me of my fat cat, but he has a tendency to break the boxes. :(

That is the cutest cat! Reminds me how my dog wants to sleep on the couch all the time.

Cats always win. That's why I want to be a house cat in my next life. Next 10 lives, I guess.

LOL, my husband and I both agree that our cat Chance has been getting out at night and going to your house, because your cat looks identical to ours, same markings and everything:-)

That's a great photo! My two cats insist on trying out every box they can find, especially those that are too small. Right now, I'm in the process of packing up my apartment to move, and the cats are having a blast with all the boxes.

Ha ha! That's so cute. Pets can sometimes be stubborn with their actions but we love them nevertheless.
