A Cat and a Box: If I Fits, I Sits!

Why do cats love boxes so much? You buy your kitty the most expensive scratching post on the market, and all she wants to do is play with the box in which it arrived at your house. Cats can spend hours in boxes for several reasons. It may give them a sense of comfort and security. Boxes may also play into a feline’s natural instinct as an ambush predator that comes out of hiding to catch its prey. Whatever the reason, here are some adorable photos of cats in boxes, confined spaces and just about anything else they can find.
