You know how mine Mommy sets up challenges for me.  
It's cause I'm not really much on playing with toys all the time, 
so the challenges give me something different to do.
Sometimes they're really good.  Sometimes not.

Guess what?  This time, when she challenged me ~ I challenged her!
Read on...

So, it's just a box, an ordinary, everyday box you say.  What's the challenge?  None.
Then she tosses my baby blankie on top.  Not much of a challenge here either.
Sorry, Mom, I'm thinking, as she sits over there (in my polka dot chair!)
waiting and waiting, camera in hand.  And I do nothing.

So, up she gets, comes over, and now my baby blankie covers the whole box.  
And she waits. And waits, and waits.  
She is waiting so long for me to do something and I am doing nothing, 
and I even hear her cell phone camera automatically click off!  
Her phone is tired of waiting!
I am doing nothing because I like it in here, I like being in this box,
and I like this box covered up with my baby blankie.

I think like 20 minutes go by.
Well, maybe 5 minutes.
She is bored now with just waiting.  
And I am bored now doing nothing.

Maybe it is time for me to do something.
But the truth is I was doing something,
I was challenging you, Mommy.
Who will give up, give in first?


  1. Ha! You're very clever, June! In our house, the biped would not have had the patience to wait. 😁

  2. you won da challenge no doubts...

  3. Oh boy, you are such a cat! Our little brother is trying challenges with our mom right now to see how far he can push her buttons too.

  4. I am pretty sure you can win June.
    We cats have a lot of patience, especially for hunting and waiting.
    Humans tend to do things now,now,now!
    Purrs, Julie

  5. June, surely your mom figured out that you were giving her the challenge not her doing you one. Humans can
    be slow on the uptake, mol. If only we kitties had thumbs, then you coulda taken her photo while she was waiting.

  6. you won the make her wait but she won the purrrrrfect shot in the last photo. I love your head emerging from your hidy hole box

  7. Hi, June. I would've fallen asleep waiting for you! So your Mom has more patience. Have a great day!

  8. I thinks it's a draw. You're both patient.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. ♥

  9. Oh Junie, you are hilarious!
    It's you against your meowmy sometimes, but it's all in fun, no?

  10. So cozy and fun ~ sweet Kitty and playful Mom ~ lol ~ Xo

    Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,

  11. I am not sure who won the challenge. She did get some cute photos of toesies and a nose.

  12. I totally understand that Junie...I also love being in my room with my blanky covering it...
    It's so cozy!

  13. You were just enjoying a nice nap in your covered box, but your mom got her pictures in the end.

  14. June it is very wise of you to carefully plan enrichment Cat-tivities for huMOM. You don't want her getting bored or anything. MOL MOL And it is a good way to get her OUT OF YOUR chair too
    Hugs Cecilia

  15. Our kitty cat cousins Hannibal and Tiberius (Hanni and Tibie) say that kitty cats naturally have lots and lots of patience. A lot more than humans!

  16. Ahahaha, oh my, June, I think in the area of patience and determination, you are well matched!

  17. What a great idea to challenge your mom. XO

  18. Let me guess. Mommy gave in first? I know kitties have long attention spans when it comes to doing nothing. Clever girl, Miss June.

  19. You were clearly the winner sweet June!

  20. It's like your own blanet fort, i don't blame you for wanting to hang around in there.

  21. LOL, LOL! A waiting game and you both called it quits, Hahaha!

    Minko would hide like that...but when someone came close, his paw would quickly dart out and give his victim a whap!
