This video features Naomi, a kitten who is completely in love with her basket. She is too adorable! Cats seem to love cramming themselves into tight spaces. They like to snuggle in baskets, boxes or anything that has sides really.



It turns out that seeking confined spaces is an instinctual behavior for cats. In the wild, this allows them to hide from predators. While inside the box, they feel that they can’t be snuck up on from behind or from the sides; anything that wants to approach must come into their field of vision giving them a sense of security.

Hiding is also a behavioral strategy for cats to escape environmental changes and stressors. Apparently, cats don’t have conflict resolution strategies meaning instead of facing a problem head-on, they are inclined to run away and avoid any problematic situation. In a sense, a box represents a safe-zone for them.



Also, according to a surprising study by the National Research Council in 2006, the temperatures that cats consider comfortable are from around 86 to 97 degrees Fahrenheit. The same study also found out that the temperature in most homes is around 72 degrees Fahrenheit; that’s 14 degrees less than the desired warmth for cats. Boxes and confined spaces apparently provide them the needed heat to become comfortable.
