    Ever wondered why cats love boxes so much? We asked the cats here at TheCatSite.com why they chose to get inside boxes and here's the complete list of reasons they gave us. Check out this list of 52 reasons with funny cat pictures as illustrations -

    1. Because the box was too big -


    2. Because the box was too small -


    3. Because the box was too empty -


    4. Because the box was way too full -


    5. Because you just needed a nap


    6. Because you wanted to hang out with your buddy -


    7. Because you wanted to hang out with ALL of your buddies!


    8. Because you felt like hiding -


    9. Because you felt like hiding AND swatting at humans passing by -


    10. Because you needed a place to contemplate the meaning of life, the universe and everything -


    11. Or a secret hideout where you can plot your revenge on the vet.


    12. With your buddies of course!


    13. Because you wanted to hide away from that nosy dog -


    14. Or your nosy sister.


    15. Because it was full of fun crinkly newspapers -


    16. Because it was full of soft fluffy stuff -


    17. Because it was full of lots and lots and lots of really soft and fluffy stuff!


    18. Because the box brings out the green in your eyes -


    19. Because it just really brings out the green in your eyes (even if your eyes are not green)!


    20. Because no matter what color your eyes are a box can really frame your eyes in a picture -


    21. Or your nose -


    22. Or your tail!


    23. Because it's how you can get your manicure done -


    26. Because you look awesome in pink -


    27. Because orange is the new black -


    28. Because your toys were right next to the box -


    29. Because your toys were right in the box -


    30. Because you wanted to feel what it was like to be Tinkerbell


    31. Because you wanted to see what it feels like to be square -


    32. Because nobody else was doing it and you wanted to set a new trend -


    33. Because everyone else is doing it -


    34. And it's always in fashion -


    34. Because the box tasted so good -


    35. Because it tasted sooo good and you just couldn't stop!



    36. Because it didn't really taste that good but the chewed-up pieces were the perfect addition to the room decor -


    37. Because the hamster got a new wheel, so you had to at least get the box it came in -


    38. Because you're a Pepsi kind of cat -


    39. Because you hate Pepsi and only go for Coca Cola -


    40. Because the box said "Priority" and you know you're the number one priority in this household.


    41. Because the box said "Special Kitty" and that was obviously you -


    42. Because you always wanted to see the beach and the box said "Malibu" -


    43. Because you wanted to feel safe and the box said "Secur" (sic).


    44. Because you were hungry and the box said "tuna" -


    45. Because the box told you to get inside it. It said "just do it", so you had no choice -


    46. Because the box just jumped on you and made you get inside it -


    47. Because an evil force flattened the poor box and you had to try and get inside just one last time, to pay your respects -


    48. Because you're a tabby -


    49. Because you're white -


    50. Because you're black -


    51. Because you're a tri-colored cat


    52. Because "tomato, tomahto", it doesn't matter what color you are. If you're a cat, you want to get in that box!

    I have a (2ft long by 12"x14") mailbox box. So you know what I'm gonna say... My cat sleeps in that box when it's storming... (lightening and thunder).

    I love a good laugh and this was just what I needed!
    Thank you for this!

    FYI...if you have Amazon's Echo "Alexa," search the skill list in the app for "Box of Cats" or ask Alexa about it by title. Enjoy!  Oh, on a cautionary note...if your cat or cats are territorial against outside intruders maybe forget I mentioned this.  The sounds Alexa makes aren't impersonations, but recordings of real cat MEOWS.

    Now I totally understand why the Vet said, "Oh he's a box cat (he wouldn't leave the weight scale tray).  Find me a box or shallow pail, please?"  Wait...why on earth did I just spend $9 bucks for four paper grocery bags that smell like catnip???  Because it's for the box cat?  Maybe he likes paper bags too?  Oh noes, the box cat is controlling my thoughts when I shop!!!  Hey!  This the best answer ever to the mystery of the box cat.  The photos are totally awesome!!!  - Thanks ;-D

    fantastic photos. We can't do that, put a box there for them to climb in, Kai uses it as a litter tray immediately. so we constructed a tunnel, 7 boxes long, to run through, hide in and sleep in, and a three storey house, 3 boxes, 2 boxes, 1 box, with windows and doorways. Fun for them both. Takes up loads of room but who's worrying?

    I bought Connor and Murphy a $50 scratching post.  They ignored for 2 hours after I got it set up becausae they were too busy playing with the box.

    Is that a Snow Sokoke in the tomato box? Whatever it is, it's gorgeous.

    I'm going to be moving to a downstairs apartment within a couple of months, and I'm starting to pack some items I don't use often.  I spend as much time digging Hekitty OUT of the boxes as I do putting items IN the boxes!

    So funny....and true!

    My cats ignore boxes, does that make them weird? If I put any of them in a box they'll be out of there so fast you only see a blur and it does not matter if the box was large or small. Now drawers or baskets...............
    But I love the pictures and have had cats that did like boxes, usually the smaller, the better if the cat was bigger than the box and had to stuff itself into the box.

    I love these photos.  That one of the nose peeking out the hole in the box made me grin from ear to ear.
