No lid, no experiment, Mr. Shrodinger
I keep meaning to post photos of my cat, Max, in his favourite sleeping spot. It took corto talking about his cat for me to finally dig 'em out and upload 'em!

So anyway, Max loves boxes. But even more than boxes, Max loves box lids. He especially enjoys those general office-sized ones--they're just the right size for a Fatty McFatterson catbutt like his.

But his favourite, his absolute favourite place to sleep, though, is in the way-too-small lid from a box of hanging file folders.

The box of file folders sits on the floor. I dare not retrieve the top.

Maxman is the zennest cat I've ever met. He is always so happy being just where he is. I'd not be surprised to learn that he's a true reincarnation of Buddha.

I could still learn a few things from him, for certain.

I don't think sleeping in too-small boxes is one of them. But who can say?

I'm feeling all kinds of: loved <3 Max

Max looks like the cartoon cat - Garfield! He's adorable!

He doesn't like lasagna... though he DOES love pizza, hot wings, sandwiches and salty snacks... and hanging out in the garage.

I guess he IS a teenager, after all :)

My cat Max is also very zen like, however he also seems to be convinced that at some point in time, I'm going to go on a rampage and kill him.

I have three photocopy paper box lids around my house, it's the sleeping spot of choice for all three of my kitties.

Very cute!

See, now I wish my cat's favortie place to sleep was a box lid.

So far it seems to be my face, my clothes, or my legs. Two out of the three involve me not moving for fear of being clawed.

He's too sweet looking! Barry's cat Lily is the opposite - she's a sprawler.

Reminds me of the quantum mechanics in nethack...

They'd drop boxes with cats in them. Don't recall if you could get them both alive or dead.

They also had attacks/corpse food effects that would make you speed (and thus momentum) or location uncertain. Tried to look up the messages the game used and failed.

Both! That's Schrodinger's cat in the box, and you don't know whether it's alive or dead until you open it.

Yeah, I know it was based on Schrodinger's cat. I just didn't remember if Nethack included the bit about it being alive or dead.

I do remember the QM's being able to alter either your position (teleoprt) or your speed somehow as well. Can't recall if it was an attack, or an effect of eating them. Thus the uncertainty principle is maintained as your momentum (due to speed changes) or position are unkown. :)

Or possibly: alive, dead, or bloody furious. Non-NH reference.

I have a photo of my cat, who looks just like that, doing the exact same damn thing.

Um, byron? I don't think he's sleeping... (snicker!)

That is a seriously awesome photo :) I love it!

For some reason all my cats favored the boxes that were 3 sizes too small for them.

You know, you probably have good odds of getting one of these pictures on Cute Overload if you want. Internet fame awaits. :)
