If you own a cat you probably know cats love for boxes. They love to play with boxes. Recently I gave my foster cats a new cat tree. I couldn’t wait to see them playing and guess what, they have chosen the box! :))
For pet cats, all the toys in the world can’t compare to a simple cardboard box. Looks like cats choose boxes because they are always seeking out confined spaces. This is an instinctual behavior for cats. In the wild, these areas allow the felines to both hide from predators and also to stalk prey. When they are hidden inside a box, cats feel that they cannot be snuck up on from behind or the side. Anything that wants to approach them will come directly into their field of vision. As a result, such hiding spaces allow them to watch the world around them being well hidden.
