I'm genuinely curious, has there ever been a scientific study about why cats love boxes so much?
@Spudbee, well, we're waiting
@Strider1321, gif is from
@Zodiac308, The reason cats like sitting in boxes is the same reason we feel safer sleeping under covers. Cats will primarily find a place to sleep that can protect them from all angles, and a box does just that. Even though it does not actually add any additional protection, just like us under our covers it makes them feel much safer.
@NotJesus, I have no clue what you're talking about. I am yet to be grabbed by the boogeyman while under my covers. It is scientifically proven you can't be harmed under them.
@NotJesus, I can't sleep if my feet are out if the covers. Don't wanna get grabbed
@HUZZAH, remwber the fellowship of the rings. you can be harmed by the ring wraiths whilst in beds. but thankfully they somehow know what room you should be in but not if you are in it.
@NotJesus, that sounds valid but that doesn't explain why cats seem to like to use the smallest box possible or why they like to sit in tape squares on the floor.
@NotJesus, What about the lion in this gif? The box is deformed to the extent that it doesn't really "protect" from any angle, except maybe down.
Cats gotta cat.
If I fits I sits.
For anyone wondering, this is from a YouTube channel called Big cat rescue, they do all sorts of fun things with their cats like feed them ice-cream, it's worth a watch!
@Cheese Milk, I used to be keeper at a BCR. Really awesome place
