A Cup Of Cat


Cats like to squeeze themselves into small spaces. They crawl into drawers, baskets, and boxes. They climb into corners of closets, hide under beds, and station themselves in the corner of your favorite easy chair. Before you've even unpacked your groceries, your cat is curled up inside one of the paper bags.

If it is small in area and has at least three sides, your cat will probably climb inside and make himself comfortable.

It isn't difficult to imagine why cats like being enclosed. They feel snug and protected in smaller, defined places. Cats have a natural need for warmth and protection; their ever-present instinct tells them to be alert to dangers that might sneak up on them when they are dozing. If the enclosure has a top, that's even better.

You should make sure your pet has a variety of snug places where he can curl up and take a nap. Pet stores and pet supply catalogs carry an endless variety of beds, boxes and hideaways from which to choose. But a simple homemade Shangri-La can be made from a cardboard box tipped on its side and lined with a soft pillow or blanket. An upside-down box with holes cut in the sides also will make a nice retreat. Or just open a drawer once in a while and see if your kitty takes up residence. Paper bags (but not plastic ones) also make great hideaways.

Some cats like their cat carriers, too, especially if they've had plenty of opportunity to explore them. Place the carrier in a room where your kitty likes to hang out and remove the door, or prop it open. Put treats or favorite toys inside, and let him discover them on his own. If the carrier is furnished with his favorite blanket, the familiar scent will help him to accept it, and you may find him nestled in there when he's ready for a nap. Then when it's time for a visit to the veterinarian, it won't be so scary because he'll be in his "home away from home."
Cats love boxes. Big cats, small cats, big boxes, small boxes…doesn’t seem to matter to the cats. A box is a box, and a box = GOOD TIMES! So what’s the big feline attraction?

Boxes also offer safe, cozy places for felines to nap. Cats sleep 18 to 20 hours a day, so it makes sense they’d seek out places where they’d be safe from attack.
 
Place a blanket in a box that's about the right size for your cat and it will likely become one of his favorite places to nap. The confined space provides a sense of safety, and the sides of the box help maintain the animal’s body heat.
 
But while all cats instinctively appreciate a good box, no feline seems to enjoy cardboard quite as much as Maru, the Internet-famous cat with more than 400,000 YouTube subscribers.
 
In a 2010 interview with cat blog LoveMeow, Maru (as told to the blogger behind the website) said, "I don’t know why, but I can't seem to stop going into a box when I see one. When I nap, I like a small box because it is snug and fits me just right. However, when I play, I prefer a huge one."

Most cats also enjoy other similar enclosed, box-like objects such as drawers, laundry baskets, sinks and paper bags.  What’s the attraction? While no one can say with certainty what goes on inside the feline mind, there are some theories:

They like the security of an enclosed space. A box resembles a cave and may make your cat feel secure knowing they are protected and, theoretically, cannot be attacked from behind.

Boxes are fun! Lots of cats seem especially playful in and around boxes. Cats enjoy jumping in and out of a box, pouncing, stalking and climbing atop boxes. Cats are little predators, and a box is a great spot from which to pounce on their prey, even if the prey is just a catnip mouse toy.

Boxes are cozy. Try putting a soft blanket in the bottom of your cat’s favorite box. The sides help retain the cat’s body heat making a comfy nest.

It’s instinctive.  When was the last time you saw your cat sleeping in the middle of a wide-open space? Cats seem to instinctively prefer smaller, more confined spaces.

Luckily, it is inexpensive to provide a box or two for your cat to enjoy. Try throwing a cat toy or two inside the box for added fun. Just make sure the box is in a safe place and that your cat can easily get in and out of the box with no risk of becoming trapped inside.

What is it about boxes that sends our feline friends into a frenzy?

Cats love boxes: big boxes, small boxes, even items that resemble boxes, such as drawers, sinks and laundry baskets. Cats enjoy the comfort and security of a small confined space, it’s like a little den or cave to them. Cats often like to curl up in a small confined space to sleep, and why not? Cats sleep 18 – 20 hours a day, so it makes sense that if you’re going to spend that much time sleeping, you should do it in a place where you are safe from attack. A box is a security blanket for a cat, and can relieve stress and anxiety.

It’s part of a cat’s instinct to be attracted to boxes. Boxes are a great place to hide from predators, but they are also a fantastic place for spying on the world around them. From inside a box, a cat can remain invisible to the world, while stalking prey…like tiny, little, furry secret agents.

Boxes are easy to get a hold of, are inexpensive, and often times totally free. If you order products online, or get a gift, you may notice your cat coming around to inspect the box. If you want your cat to enjoy a box, try putting a blanket inside, and their favorite toy or some cat nip. Never put your cat in a box as punishment. A box should always be a warm, comforting, happy place for your cat.

Boxes aren't just fun and games for your kitty. Those 4 cardboard walls offer safety and security — in addition to being a great place to swat at passersby.
 
Cats are instinctively drawn to boxes because they offer security. The confined space provides protection from predators, and it’s a great place to stalk prey while remaining virtually unseen.
 
Climbing onto, jumping into and hiding in boxes is simply part of a cat's natural behavior, so providing an empty box or two is an inexpensive way to enrich your pet’s environment.
 
Leave a box in a safe place for your cat to play. You can drop in a couple of favorite toys or cut a few holes in the side so he can peek through or stick out a paw to swat at toys — or people.

Even big cats like boxes!

Story
Tagline
I love life. I enjoy the little things in life. I don't take myself serious. Life is too short to not enjoy it!
Introduction
If you know me I'm a very positive person who really tries to find the positive in every situation.  I enjoy life to the fullest and if I'm not talking about food, working out, shopping, my dogs, or my family, the something is seriously wrong! 

If I'm not eating, I'm working out, and if I'm not working out I'm sleeping.  Sleeping is my favorite.
