  8. Some pretty important things happened on this day, but none as important as this special day set aside just for kitties to enjoy their boxes. Muffin has the best box as she got the extra bonus of tissue paper. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
