Madam is here modelling a 9" x 9" x 4" Digikey box that recently arrived containing a 50gm Lattice MAX02 development board and a 10gm BNC scope probe adaptor. It's bit like Roseanne Barr trying to fit into a size zero dress.

Madam, you're not a kitten any more, you're over 4 kg!

(Attachment Link)

Now, nearly two months after madam adopted that box, it's still her favourite sleeping place. I haven't the heart to do what I ought to do, tidy up and chuck the empty boxes
Anybody got a syringe I can use to squeeze the magic smoke back into this?

I don't think that 'fitting in the box' even makes the top ten list of criteria when it comes to selecting a sleeping spot!

I'd say you could get at least two more of them in there...

Cubdriver, reading that and continuing into your signature gives a rather hilariously grim picture of your suggestion...  >:D

The kind of cat you don't stand in front of and say "What on earth is THAT?". Well, not if you value your dangly bits.

It's a Pallas's Cat.

Just another name for a Pallas's Cat aka Otocolobus manul.

Edit: Beaten to it.
