Cat trap or enigmatic attraction of boxes

Fact 1: Cats love boxes.

Fact 2: The box cannot be tiny enough that they won’t try to fit in.

Jumping in – jumping out, sniffing, snuggling, sleeping inside (or half-in, half-out – if the box is too small), scratching – wrapped up: boxes are so much fun! Whenever a cat finds a box, you can immediately see its excitement. A box is the perfect place to hide. Scientifically seen it offers safety from predators while they can stalk the environment. Lurking for prey probably is so exhausting that they (virtually unseen) fall asleep. In summary, new boxes are a win-win situation in our household: I love my new shoes and my cats adore their new sleeping places.
