What is it with cats and sitting in things? Or sitting on things? Why do all cats love sitting in boxes, baskets, bowls or other weird spots? My cats just love sitting in and on things, and it got me thinking, mostly about how strange they are. I tried to find an answer for why cats like boxes but they best science can come up with is the speculative “cats like to hide and boxes are good places to hide and ambush prey from” answer. It’s true and I suppose I should be glad scientists aren’t wasting thousands of millions of dollars on such a question. But still, I would love an answer. Anyhoo, since I can’t find an answer here are some of my favorite pictures of my cats in strange places.
House cats aren’t the only ones who like boxes! If you haven’t seen it, check out this video from BigCatRescue.org of, you guessed it, Big Cats in Boxes!
