No matter how many wonderful beds and toys we buy our cats they still love nothing better than getting in a cardboard box left around from unpacking our latest Amazon order.

What is the attraction of these cardboard castles to our feline friends? Well apparently, the main draw for them is a feeling of security. Cats feel that they can’t be attacked by anything from behind or the sides. Anything approaching them has to come from behind or the sides. Any direct attacks from the front would be spotted quickly.

The other real attraction to cats is they could sleep in the box, something they are very good at – up to 20 hours a day!

In the wild, cats seek out confined spaces for safety and security so when a domestic cat “boxes clever” they are exhibiting exactly the same characteristics.

And while we’re talking about your cat feeling secure, here at HomeFurYou, we will look after your cats and your house while you are away, so that you can rest easy knowing that everything is being taken care of.
