Why do cats like boxes?
WOLVES, EAGLES, JACKALS, foxes and snakes prey on wild relatives of the cat. Cats hide in bushes or burrows during the day to escape their predators and to go to sleep. This behaviour lingers in domestic cats. A study at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands found that cats in animal shelters were much less stressed by their new surroundings if they had a box to hide in. Even when cats aren’t stressed, a box feels more secure, cosy and comforting.
