Scientists say they haven’t fully understood why our feline friends have an affinity for boxes, but they have a number of theories.The most popular is that cats are instinctively drawn to boxes because they offer security and shelter from predators while they stalk their prey. They also offer a safe place to take a nap. Cats can sleep for 18 to 20 hours a day, so seeking out a hidden place would help their chances of survival in the wild.
