Cats claim Vitamix box as their "fur-ever" home in month-long standoff with owners

  • Publicado el 11 ene 2022
  • Cats love to claim their territory, but some furry family members of a B.C. couple has kept them from using their new Vitamix blender for about a month after they took the appliance hostage and their antics have drawn the attention of people worldwide.
    Jessica and Nikii Gerson-Neeves bought themselves the blender online and it arrived just before Christmas. Jessica says she put the box on the kitchen floor for a "quick second" and Max, also known as their "sentient soccer ball" jumped on top. She snapped a photo and put it online thinking Max would eventually lose interest and get off the box but at least a few people could get some laughter.
    She was wrong on both counts and now in addition to thousands seeing the photo on social media and the couple now documenting developments on their Facebook page, Max along with George and Lando Calrissian have been taking shifts on the box creating a deadlock.
    As Kylie Stanton reports, "Appliancegate" is still ongoing and even the Vitamix company is getting involved.

    This is so fascinating how quickly we can come together to fight domestic kitty boxlessness 😺 So much response

      There are people in Africa who dont even know what a box is. Are we really focusing on territorial cats instead of REAL issues? Okay

      Yet we can't all put together to end the homelessness of our own species.

      @edye ann I think many Canadians are very close to America so they don't have much heavy accent, but if you look up Newfoundland News, then that's a very heavy accent that some of us have :)
      I think the kitties should use the vitamix! They could become masterchef cats!

      @ItsJustJacob You're Canadian, right? May I ask a really dumb question? Why is it that I cannot distinguish the Canadian accent with the American one? I'm in Mexico and I can't tell the accent apart! Why is that?

      Its a cat. There is a box. That's all that needs to be said

    I don't forsee this getting resolved anytime soon. I suggest caving into their demands. This is a union issue.

      The cats demand the right to sit on the box. They're definitely winning. =^.^=

    Debby downer here, the cardboard for that box or the box and/or contents itself must have spent time a fair amount of time in rodent infested area. The smell has permeated the fibers, smells like heaven to a carnivore when warm.

    Yeah, this is stupid. If you want the appliance push the cat off and move it somewhere else. What are you, helpless?

    We foster pregnant cats and kittens for the animal shelter. We saw this story on the news and we both looked at each other and said “So what!” This is typical cat behaviour. The owner is trying to steal 15 minutes of fame for something that it’s even news. And of course the media makes a big deal about it.

      With peace and love perhaps you should blend your sour grapes in a Vitamix.
      Or continue the old adage “when life gives you lemons, squeeze them in peoples eyes”!
      Either way your choice entirely 💜💕
