It’s well-established that cats freakin’ love boxes.

Just ask any cat owner who’s purchased a fancy cat-bed for their beloved pet, only to find the feline would rather curl up in the box.

Even big cats like lions and tigers are crazy about boxes. The question is, why?

This Simon’s Cat Logic video, above, provides some insight into the psychology surrounding cats and boxes. Basically, they see enclosed spaces like boxes as a source of comfort, but they’re not just for stressed-out cats. Pretty much every cat (OK, fine, maybe you have the weird cat that hates boxes) can benefit from boxes, so feel free to scatter them around until your home mildly resembles a landfill. We won’t judge, and your cat might thank you.
