Cats and Boxes

How many times have you seen your cat get the zoomies, grab a toy, pick on a fur sibling, dig a bit in the litter, and then race off for a big nap…inside of a small enclosed space? Or even a box?

While we may never know what goes through a cat’s mind, one thing is certain. Cats love boxes. But why is that? In our house, there seems to be two clear reasons.

  1. The box provides the cat with a place to hide and feel safe.
  2. The box provides warmth.


All three of our cats were kittens of varying ages when we rescued them from the street. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them feral, but I doubt any of them knew a home before coming to our house. All three will dash off and hide when guests or woofies come over. They hide under something, in something or find the closest box. Obviously boxes make them feel safe.


Other times, there is no immediate threat of a stranger, but they’ll plunk right down into a box that I’ve left out, whatever the size. So why would they do this? Warmth!

Being in an enclosed space made of corrugated cardboard, which is a great insulator, the cat will feel warm – and everyone knows that cats love warmth. Their body temperature runs higher than ours. So by being in an enclosed space, they won’t have to work as hard to stay warm, which is especially true in the colder months.

  1. OMC! I’d LOVE to win this!!! I think I’ve only entered one of the other giveaways to give cats who really wanted to win them, but I really want to win this!!! I don’t like cardboard boxes as much as other cats but I don’t like cardboard scratchers either. The top of that cube looks purrfect!

  2. My cat, Fritz, would love this! I`m sure he would be ‘home’ quite a bit if he was to win this!

  3. My kitties would love this box! Your 12 days of giveaways is incredibly generous and warms my heart – a great example of Christmas spirit!

  4. Our cats love boxes of any shape or size. In fact the other night we had pizza and before we knew it Miss Prissy was curled up on top of the pizza box. I am so sure the will absolutely love the cube.

  5. I made a carpeted enclosure similar to this with an old subwoofer cabinet. The one here looks a bit nicer.
