I don't know.

If you were a cat.. and you saw a huge box.. wouldn't you lay in it?

I know I would.

When I was a kid I used to enjoy sitting in boxes. Perhaps it's the perceived security.

Or maybe the cat is pretending to fly through space in a cardboard spaceship
Either way, I know a fat orange cat that sleeps on a pizza box all day every day, and it's not garfield its a real cat.

THey like bags too. My cat would sleep in a plastic bag if I would let her. I think the enclosure makes them feel safe. They like to be up high too, like in a tree. :smile:

they like boxes because its a secure place, their personal spot. good for exploring. good for shitting in. simple enough.  :smirk: one that troubles me is why do cats like string?

I loved boxes as a kid too. I still do, only I can't fit into them anymore. I guess they like em' the same way we do. They also like to lick their own asses.

dude, you havent seen nuthin yet... get some dried peppermint... i got some from the local herb/health store.. so one day , the plastic baggy was sitting on my desk, and i was out of the room for a few minutes, and my cat was trying to chew thru the bag, salviating all over it, laying on his back just going nuts...  so i was like 'hmm' so i put some in a cloth bag for him, and as soon as i put it on him, he started going crazy again... so i put some in another bag, and threw it to my other cat, and BAM just like that she was all rollin and salviating on it and shit... it was freakin crazy... ask notapillow, he''s heard about it... it's like cat crack...  so i was tellin the guy at the store this, and he was like "hmm, well, catnip is a form of peppermint" and i was like 'hmm, intersting"... my cats like cat nip alright, but not like the peppermint.

as for the boxes, i made a nice enclosed house for my cats, with a deck, and an eating area, and a top for sitting on... and those bastards stopped going in it, so i threw a long box on top, and they fucking sit in that shit every day... so the hose i build out of wood is just like a stool to support thier cheap cardboard box.

and this one time, i dont know how, but we got this HUGE box, like 3 refridgerator boxes  side by side long, and just as tall, my brother an i made a fort out of that and played in it for days. then it rained and our fort was gone :frown:... but we had lots of fun :grin:

my cat seems to find the limits of the box hard on her creative mind. they like to smear it on the floor too for added affects. does it stick better on lanoleum? :tongue:

We all live in a box full of smaller boxes to reside in. Some people call it a "house".
