This Study Proves: Cats Are Less Stressed When They Have Access To Cardboard Boxes

There is now an official (and scientific!) reason why cats love boxes. Why cats and boxes are such a good mix has long been a mystery. Researchers from the University of Utrecht have discovered just why, publishing the results of their findings in the Journal Applied Animal Behaviour Science.

This is reason enough to post observations (collected by top scientists) of this cute cat phenomenon. Not that we needed a reason, but you know.

University of Utrecht researchers C. M. Vinke, L.M. Godijn and W. J. R. van der Leij each contributed to the study.
