The first thing that comes to mind when trying to explain this craving for cardboard – that cats are carnivores by nature and therefore like to sit in ambush. But it soon becomes apparent that this is at least not one reason for this behavior.
Researchers, veterinarians and behavioral biologists have long been interested in this issue, and that’s what they found. Cats do not develop strategies for conflict resolution, as do a herd, therefore they prefer to avoid encounters with the enemy. Therefore, we can say, they are trying instead of solving problems to run away and hide from them.
However, cats, even in a good mood tend to boxes. Total — cats love to hide in boxes because it’s a great place for an ambush (including bruiser), a protected space where it’s warm, and it is fun rustling. It is a pity that cats can’t talk.
