Cats and boxes
If you're a cat lover you have probably seen your cat in at least one box. But, what is it about boxes that's so much fun?
A study made at the Utrecht University in the Netherlands points towards boxes reliving stress. Sitting in a box creates a feeling of safety. In the wild, a hideout like the box would provide safety from predators and a place to relax.
Another theory builds on cat's affection for warmth. The box might provide shelter from cool drafts, and the layered cardboard would help keep the cat warm.
If you have a cat, do they like boxes?
