BEGGING FOR BOXES.



For some  years now we have been buying these boxes from Asda containing 8 webbox dog rolls.   We give the foxes some dog roll each night together with a bit of tinned food.
Yesterday we went shopping to buy another box and 'Hey Presto' they no longer stock them.
I'm not worried about the food as the foxes will eat anything but the gang of 5, aka  Rowan, Rupert, Willow, Princess and Mummy Polly will not be happy when I break the news to them.
These boxes are the love of their lives and they all take a turn at snuggling down in them.

I've written to Webbox and am waiting a reply.
I sort of begged them to send me some boxes if they have any in the warehouse or tell me where else I can buy them.  What a saddo I am begging for boxes, lol .   But that's what cat's do to you isn't it.......turn you into a jibbering wreck over cardboard boxes.

  1. I always find it strange when I read about people feeding foxes - in Australia they are regarded as a pest causing problems with farm animals as well as wildlife,. There is a bounty process on their heads here in Victoria. http://agriculture.vic.gov.au/agriculture/pests-diseases-and-weeds/pest-animals/fox-bounty
    Do you think the manufacturer would sell you unassembled boxes

    1. The question of foxes being pests is debatable Kathy. Maybe in Australia they are a problem but I do not see that they are over here. They have been forced out of the countryside into the towns in search of food but most people never see them as they usually come out when it is dark. I don't see what harm they are doing just trying to live like the rest of us and there are a lot of people who would also like to see pigeons, seagulls, badgers, rats, mice, etc got rid of, I could go on but my thought is that we should all try to live together. My personal feeling is that man is the biggest pest this world has to deal with, just look at the mess he is making of this wonderful world.

    4. I do so agree Briony. What right do we have to 'get rid' of any other living thing. They have as much right as we do, or should have.

    1. First they stopped selling the Felix Fayre cat food, I now order that online and now the dog rolls. Obviously they were not making enough profit on these items.

  3. I hate it when all of a sudden a loved product is no longer available.

  4. Ha-ha! I wonder if anyone has ever asked them just for the boxes before. :) Looks like they are perfect for the kitties.

  5. The things we do for our animal children! Hope you can get your boxes or the equivalent.

  6. I laughed when I read this post. Our cats love the boxes we get when we order our keurig coffee pods. When asked why we don't just pick them up at the grocery, we say we need the boxes as well as the pods (and truth be known, the pods are a mite cheaper from keurig). As for feeding the foxes, I totally agree with you... feel the same about feeding feral cats.

  7. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=webbox+dog+rolls. This is the link to the Webbox Dog Rolls I found on Amazon. The boxes don't look the same, so maybe they are out changing the look. Maybe this will do in a pinch, I hope so.

    1. Thanks for the link Ginny, I have taken a look and the boxes are not the same. I can get similar one's from tesco but they are taller and they wouldn't be able to lay in them and look out of the window at the same time. If I cannot get the others I will buy them and cut them down. I think you may be right, they are probably making changes. Can't believe I've made a post out of cardboard boxes. LOL

  10. what we do for our pets! Cats all seem to love getting into things do hope you can get more boxes.

  11. I understand your box dilemma! One of our cats had a favourite one for years. All squished to his size. It was horrible when it finally fell apart.
    Have a good weekend!

  12. It's great that you put something out for the foxes! I'm afraid to do it because of Olga. I don't want the foxes to get the false impression that our garden is a safe/welcoming space! Hope you have good luck with your boxes, but I bet your cats would love any box you give them.

  13. I don't feed the foxes but for the most part all our cats have sat alongside them and their cubs. There was an awful incident with one current cat though. He must have been too enquiring and the fox bit his tail badly. He's a very quiet cat but I heard him scream and saw the fox bolt. For a while, apart from the wound, his tail was partially paralysed.

    Re boxes - cats just love them don't they! Our two play hide and seek both together and with us. You have to smile when they stick just their heads in impossibly small boxes and imagine they are invisible!
