so what's the deal with cats + cardboard boxes?
we did the research + broke it down to show how by giving your cat a box, you may actually be helping to improve their well-being.
let's not forget that cats are natural predators, so it's instinct for them to seek out hiding places; a box is an ideal place.
when curled up inside a box, the walls provide pressure around your cat's body which relieves stress + calms anxiety.
cardboard is an insulator which helps regulate your cat's body temperature, making it the perfect material for napping.
as curious creatures with extreme hearing capabilities, cats are intrigued by the sound that cardboard + paper make when coming in contact with them.
