Why the **** do cats like boxes? This is a real puzzle to me. We have two boxes on our living room table and 2 of my cats are in it as we speak. My cats always lie in them when they're not eating or harassing us during dinner time or lunch.

You see, cats are actually extra terrestrials. They came to earth in ancient Egypt. The Egyptians saw them come from the sky, hence why cats were worshiped in ancient Egyptian culture. The cats' spaceships bore a resemblance to modern cardboard boxes. On the cats' planet, there was a higher oxygen content in the air, so when they came to earth, continuously breathing our air caused brain damage. The once-intelligent species became no more than animals, however they still instinctively recognize boxes as their form of interstellar travel, and will climb into them in an attempt to get back home.

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.

I thank thee for this informative post. I shall inquire of my cats wether they're interested in a blanket. They, however, refuse to speak to me, but that's nothing a round of waterboarding can't solve.

It's not just house cats, either.
