CATS & KITTENS

Why Do Cats Like Boxes?

A pizza box, or a random container that was left over after an Amazon purchase you didn’t want to return. Your cat is awestruck by all of them. Your cat is slumbering inside them, sits within the ( if I fit, I will sit), or even sits inside them and waits for you to walk past to pounce on and scratch your legs (no judgment here, as the outbreak, made it obvious shaving isn’t worth it).

What is the reason our cats like boxes over the adorable designer cat beds you should not have bought? The answer is to be with their natural desire for safety and comfort and a good viewpoint for stalking predators.

What is it about boxes That Your Cat Likes So Much?

Similar to the way your child with a human was playing with the box that which a costly present arrived in place of the present itself, boxes are too entertaining for cats. There are several reasons why the left-over boxes are so appealing to your furry friend.

Boxes are the perfect way to store items

Short, tall, wide narrow, or tall All of them are the right size for cats because they are fluid. Cats require shelters not only for entertainment and enjoyment but also for mental well-being as well. The safest places to hide from the bustle and craziness of homes are necessary for every cat to enjoy their life to the fullest. Boxes that are easily accessible and easy to access make great hiding places.

Boxes are a bit comfy

If you have a cat, you realize how crucial it is for their comfort to have lots of comfortable places to rest. Cats require security while they rest as they’re naturally on high alert due to their predatory genetics. A box can be a convenient refuge for napping, and being free of frilly blankets and sheets that are tangled makes it an easy task for your carnivore cat to escape quickly in case of need.

Boxes are Clean (Usually)

While your cat may prefer quiet time in a smelly shoe box occasionally, however, the majority of boxes aren’t particularly smelly. For those with a cat that is awed by the scent that is why the box a great spot to relax and relax, but also makes it less appealing for other possible predators. Clean boxes provide a tidy space and are a plus for cats who prefer a clean and tidy bedroom.

What are Cats capable of fitting into boxes of all sizes?

The cat is a predator which is why the capacity to maneuver quickly into an area regardless of its size, is essential for its survival. Cats who are hunting for small, swift prey (or your hands) must be able to cover themselves and then leap out and take on their prey in a single swift move. The body is the best tool for this as felines are incredibly agile.

James R. Richard, a researcher at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine states that cats are equipped with an extremely flexible body structure which includes a clavicle that is free-floating (collarbone). Also, the cats have a flexible spine that is malleable, with discs that are malleable and shoulder blades connected to the rest of their body with muscles instead of bones.

Whatever the reason that your daring cat seeks out your discarded cardboard from late-night online shopping trips There’s one thing for certain: cats are bizarre, hissy-porous, and hilarious (I like cat-related puns) … and you could save cash the next time you’re looking to buy a stylish cat bed.
