If they love their box they can keep it?

Because they like to screw up whatever is in the box and jack with whatever human owns the box.

Because the interior of that box represents that all important “territory”...and if he’s in that box alone, which is more than likely,...he OWNS that territory.

Squeek the cat does nothing like that. Squeek the cat doesn't like boxes, doesn't like to jump up on the kitchen countertop, doesn't like to play, doesn't chase toys, doesn't do a damn thing except eat and sleep...........

She's the most boring and stupid cat I have ever seen...........

I posted on face book a video that shows even the big cats love boxes...they put boxes in with leopards, tigers lions etc and they were all facinated by big cardboard boxes, jumping in and out of them and chewing on the box etc, just like domestic cats do..don’t know how to post it to FR and following directions to post is complicated for this old lady but easy on facebook to post...

It’s actually easy to do. . . just copy the URL at the YouTube page and paste it into the FR reply box - that’s it. (it’s pasted below). . .

My Siamese and Orange cats use to love to sit in shoe boxes which we would tie a shoelace to and pull them around the house...pusha-kitty, pusha-kitty.

Maybe because they’re ambush hunters and are naturally drawn to hiding places?

I put a basket on the floor last night and within minutes my cat was curled up inside. Fresh folded laundry is another must-have!

LOL!

I suspect in his kitty mind he's killing a gazelle in the Serengeti, cleverly disguised as a phone bill.

What courage!
