A box, as the Internet has so thoroughly documented, seems to be the thing that cats love the most.
It can be any box, really. Big boxes, small boxes, irregularly shaped boxes – it doesn’t really matter.
Once you’ve placed one on the ground, on a chair or a bookshelf, see your kitty quickly head for it, they are irresistible to our feline friends.
Like many of the other really weird things that cats do, science hasn’t been able to fully explain this particular feline mystery.
Of course there are some obvious reasons why they find them so appealing, security plays a big part, a box feels like a safe place.
Boredom also plays a big part in this, our kitties need to be entertained and if we don’t do it for them, they will do it all by themselves. It’s like a mini adventure.
But whatever the reason is, they’ll manage to cram themselves into almost any kind of box, or at least they’ll try (and read this to learn why cats like boxes so much!)
Take a look at these incredibly cute pictures of cats in boxes and you’ll see what I mean.
