Area Cat Refuses to Box
By Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to reports, Louie the cat has refused to take part in the oft-practiced kitty pastime known as “boxing.” Usually, a cat will see a box, lie down in it, and stay in that position for an indeterminate amount of time.
The cat’s owner tells The Fluffington Post that Louie outright rejected the box he was presented with last week.
"I thought he would love it," says Roger Blake. "He just stared at me like, ‘what am I supposed to do with this?’ I was really taken aback."
Though not unheard of, Louie’s behavior is considered unusual among experts.
"Louie should have had no reservations accepting the box as his temporary home," says feline behaviorist Linda Fiore. "It seems that, sadly, he has forgotten how to cat."
