|This is my cat Jack being adorable|
Okay, I admit it. I love my cat. He's soft and cuddly and totally cute. He's also a macho kind of guy with a an odd sense of humor and a curiosity about how things work that I find endearing.
Like most all cats, Jack loves paper bags.

Well, what's not to love? They are perfect for hiding in, lightweight, movable, and they make nice, satisfying, crackly noises.
|Taste testing the bag|
Of course, Jack also has to taste test the bag. Cardboard is evidently yummy. He didn't reply when I asked him how it tasted. Too busy chewing, no doubt.
|Popping out of the bag|
"Jack! Stand still! This is not a video recording. It's STILL photography! That means you have to stay STILL! Jack! Jack!" (Sigh.)
It's a lost cause trying to get a cat to strike a pose, although we came pretty close in the above photo.
I left the room then, and when I returned, Jack's stuffed animal, Mr. Kitty, was occupying the bag. He was no doubt a place saver... Jack had even thoughtfully provided one of his toys for Mr. Kitty to play with.
|No, I did not stage this. Jack did it all himself.|
Jack played with Mr. Kitty in the bag for a while, then went in search of treats.
I couldn't figure out what was so interesting to him. There wasn't a lot of movement. There also weren't any big splotches of color, laser pointers, or singing.
I mean, I have had kitties in the past, for example, who loved the Muppets. They would be mesmerized whenever the Muppet Show came on. I blamed it on the bright colors, the movements and the silly voices, but let's face it, who doesn't love the Muppets?
