Two cats: one somersaults in a plastic container. The other fits tightly into a tiny box.

Two domestic cats messing around in small containers. The cat who somersaults inside a small plastic container is priceless. What's he up to? Cats love small containers; usually carboard boxes. The one of the right totally ignores the antics of the cat somersaulting.

Why do domestic cats love small containers to much, especially cardboard boxes? It must be to do with the sense of security they feel. If that is true it means that they feel insecure. And if that is true we are in big trouble 😕.

Well, domestic cats live in the human world. They're used to it but it is alien. No one knows how cats perceive us. No one, not even the greatest minds on cat behaviour. We can guess. They probably see us as surrogate mothers sometimes, kittens at other times and giants when frightened by us. Sometimes, the human world is scary for domestic cats. But it beats being abandoned and stray or feral.
