Trapacat!

About a bazillion years ago… or back on December 9th, 2013, we won a really cool toy from Sparkle* called a Trapacat.

Some “might” say the Trapacat is simply a box and we all know kitties like boxes. But this box is different! Why, it could be called attractive, pretty, or even stylish!

Our mom took lots of photos of us playing, tussling, and sleeping in our prize Trapacat. We were small then.

And then, dad’s home server failed. Badly. Mom lost all but four photos of some of us Niblets playing in our beach-themed Trapacat. There’s my big sister Illy who is now known as Tiger, and if you look closely at the other pink and white box, you’ll see Winter (known now as Lily) trying to whap us through an opening with her paw.

Mom promises to take more photos with the Trapacat, with big cats this time! Right, mom? Yeah, we won’t let her forget.

*Our deepest apologies to cool cat Sparkle (and thank you again!) and to Trapacat for our mom not addressing these photos earlier.

  1. The pics are great, though it’s too bad your mom lost most of them with the server fail. Still, we can see what a terrific box the Trapacat is!

  2. We’re sorry to hear about the lost pictures from when the server failed. The trapacat game looks like it will be fun.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  3. I almost missed Winter’s paw action!

  4. I LOVE the Trapacat!! And seeing any of the Niblets is a treat all in itself.

  5. You kitties look like you are having lots of fun. Sorry about the lost photos,that sucks.

  6. My mom says you might try recovering those lost photos (and anything else, for that matter) with a software program called IsoBuster (isobuster.com). It’s the best recovery program she found when she lost a slew of stuff. If the lost data has been written over, it may be lost forever, but it’s worth the try.

    We love the pics she was able to save!

  7. That was quite some action in the Trapacat! 🙂

  8. I’m so glad to see the Trapacat was put to good use! Paws up to Winter for being creative!

  9. Wow Trapcat sure is a hit and being a dog we won’t make a joke or two. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  12. Love the paw through the box x

  13. That Trapacat works! Look at the cats it trapped. 😉 So cute!

  14. The human says all boxes are a version of Trapacat…what does she know? Looks like the Niblets were having a great time in it 🙂

  15. Awesome box! I can see why it got it’s name!

  16. Viola, you and Illy were so adorable, and the photos with Winter sticking her paw through the box hole are so funny. We cannot believe anything resembling a bigger cat would even fit in the box. Glad some of the photos survived. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
