Apparently, It’s Very Difficult To Box Up Cat Toys

Reader James was not impressed last week when we posted a picture of a cat toy that Amazon shipped inside another cat toy…or, as us people without cats call them, a very large “cardboard box.” James assured us that he could top one cat toy in a mere oversized long, thin box: he received two cat toys in a box large enough to ship at least four cats.*

The shipment dates back to last year. This package arrived at his home.


What fragile and easily breakable object is nestled under all of that paper?


Oh. That’s slight overkill. If Amazon used FedEx for more packages, they might be in trouble.


At least the packaging won’t all go to waste.
