Why is it that cats love to sleep in the smallest of places? Did you know that cats have a natural desire for warmth and protection? A cat’s natural instinct is to be on alert to any danger at any time of the day, even during nap time. Therefore choosing a suitable nap time spot that feels safe and protected is essential for any cat’s happiness. Cardboard boxes or Catty Stacks, Igloo’s, or bags are usually favourite places your cat will choose to sleep.
