Quirky kitties – part three!

Why does my cat really love boxes?

We asked the RSPCA’s cat behaviour and welfare expert, Alice Potter, to answer some of your most-asked questions…


Alice says: Hiding is a natural behaviour for cats and boxes give a great opportunity! Scientific research has shown that being able to hide can help cats feel less stressed, so it’s important all cats have hidey-holes around the house to go to for some ‘time out’.

Cats are highly intelligent animals who have a natural urge to explore. They also have the physique to jump and climb – so why not find out what’s in the box?!

If I fit, I sit!

And remember, the more we understand about our feline family members, the better we can be at making them happy and healthy!



Hello, I'm Christine and I'm part of the team who work on the Animal Action magazine. I've been at the RSPCA for quite a while and just love being part of such a great organisation. My most favourite animals are dogs and I have a soft spot for Westies.
