Cats are masters at fitting themselves in the tightest, smallest, most awkward spaces — and they seem to be completely comfortable in those odd positions and locations.
Whether it’s a small box, a bowl, or even a shoe — just when you think there’s no possible way a cat could fit, they do! Some people think cats are strange, but really, they’re actually quite smart. A cat gets comfort from being tucked away in tight, small spaces. It supposedly even reduces their stress levels.
Cats might also find dark, cramped areas to take a nap because it helps them preserve their body heat. It’s actually a heat-saving strategy! So, next time you think your cat is strange when you find them in a funny, small space — admire their feline ability to adapt instead.
