Reader Stories: Container Cat Pictures


Cats are noted for their propensity of seeking out places to hide - places not originally intended for cats, such as kitchen sinks, boxes, baskets, slippers, and such.Perhaps they're just looking for a new and interesting place to catnap. Or could it just be a way of saying "gotcha!" to their amazed humans?

About.com has made it possible for you to upload your own container cat photo to share with other readers, with an easy to use online form.

After you've seen other readers photos, submit your own to see how your cat scores in his or her choice of containers for napping.
