Have a Meltdown.

Cat’s freaking love cardboard boxes. Have you ever noticed how they often prefer playing in a box over any toy you actually spent good money on? They’re simple creatures, and as explained here, there’s some reasoning behind their madness. There’s just something about the safety of four tiny cardboard walls that’s comforting.

But you’re not a cat (presumably), so it’s going to take something with a little more substance to keep you entertained this week (again, presumably). To that end, we’ve mapped out a whole week’s worth of fun times just for you.
