Crazy Cats in Boxes
Cats Versus Daleks
You bought your cat an expensive luxury cat basket, but what does it prefer? you're right it prefers that cardboard box from the grocery store! Do they love boxes because they are the same size as them, or because there are no drafts or is it just another example of the odd and mysterious nature that we will never entirely understand.
What is clear is that cats are not claustrophobic and are quite happy to squeeze into the smallest space. They are quite fearless which often leads them into danger when they find warmth in ovens and washing machines.

Cat Recovering from nearly being crushed - Cats go into boxes when they need therapy
My wife was putting the folding settee/bed back into position when she heard a terrible hissing because unbeknown to her our cat was sleeping inside it. She immediately released the cat who was doubly terrified by my wife's scream when she thought she might have killed the poor beast. The cat ran out and hid in a corner of the my office which no one can reach, she stayed there for hours until I thought I would lay a trap for her by putting an Amazon box close to her hiding place. She eventually climbed into it even though it was a very tight fit!

Cats should really live to a hundred because they spend so much time sleeping especially in winter!

I watched a TV program on intelligent animals including an ape that could do a memory test faster than any human. There were various animals and birds who solve different problems and even speak; but no cats. Of course although they are probably the cleverest animal they would have of course have refused to cooperate in any intelligence test.

Is this why Cats like Small Boxes?
Wild and domestic cats like to lie in heaps for warmth and for intimacy. Cats seem to have a need to be stroked which is just a little way behind their need to feed!
When cats squeeze into a box is this a reminder of their life as a kitten?
These are Suki's kittens fathered by a local cat we didn't approve of but nothing to do it was love at first sight.
Cats What are They Thinking?
Who is the Pet? You or your Cat?
What are they thinking when they stare at us for minutes on end?
Our relationship with our cats is based on equality but we are never quite sure however if it isn't the cat who is really master. Is that what they are thinking when they stare at us, mug don't you realize that I'm the boss!

Cat in a Paper Bag - At least she chose a nice up-market Ralph Lauren Bag!
She made a terrible racket entering this bag and woke us up.
If she is such a mastermind why choose such a small box?
