Why Do Cats Love Boxes?

CATBOXAnytime I buy something new, I leave the box around the house for a few days. My cats love boxes. They sit in them, play in them and claim them by rubbing their scent on them. Why do cats love boxes so much? There are a few reasons.

  1. They like the security of an enclosed space. A box resembles a cave and may make your cat feel secure knowing they are protected and, theoretically, cannot be attacked from behind.
  2. Boxes are fun! Lots of cats seem especially playful in and around boxes. Cats enjoy jumping in and out of a box, pouncing, stalking and climbing atop boxes.
  3. Boxes are cozy. Try putting a soft blanket in the bottom of your cat’s favorite box. The sides help retain the cat’s body heat making him nice and cozy. Careful though, he may not want you to throw his new bed away!
  4. It’s instinctive.  Cats seem to instinctively prefer smaller, more confined spaces.

So hang onto that box for a few more days and keep your feline friend happy!
