Actually, Christian isn't quite right. There is one thing that can beat a cardboard box, and that's a cardboard box that smells of old people's things. It's got to be a teeny-weeny bit to small for the cat, too - in this case size does matter. ;) I recently saw a film where someone actually did this, so yes, tiger-sized boxes do exist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J11uu8L8FTY I'd always thought that tigers must love them, but, like Gundi I didn't know you could get any in the right size. Cardboard never really occured to me as a practical packaging for something really large and heavy. Of course, this is nothing more than a filler, because I felt really awkward about Christmas going on for months, which it threatened to do, and to give a sign of life too. But I guess you knew that - “to give up” just isn't in my vocabulary, the same way Iesenbahnpohlopundaaldreiher* probably isn't in yours. ;) As a matter of fact, I was actually quite active these past few weeks, having pencilled out about 24 panels for the upcoming storyline. I just don't know yet when I'll be able to finish them, but I will. I'm truly sorry for the long wait, but it wouldn't do either to interrupt the flow with long breaks, once it's started. You'll see what I mean soon enough. Anyway, thanks to all those who may still visit and comment after all this time! I haven't been around too much, lately, but I really appreciate it a lot.
* Iesenbahnpohlopundaaldreiher is one of my favourite words in Platt, only I hardly get to use it very often these days, as it signifies a profession largely extinct (it's a humorous name for a crossing keeper, if you must know). Therefore I rejoice at every opportunity to do so. :D
