Many people around the world are celebrating Boxing Day today! Different countries celebrate this annual event with their personal heritage and traditions.
But here in our home, this is how our feline family members celebrate Boxing Day …
No matter the stage, size or species, all cats love boxes. Whether they are a tiger or tabby, a kitten or senior, a Good Box Makes Life Better.
Cats actually need boxes!
📦 Not only are boxes perfect for cats, who are both Predator AND Prey, but experts believe a cardboard box is just as important as food, water, and a litter box!
📦 Cardboard is insulating! It helps to maintain their body temperature in both hot and cold environments.
📦 Boxes offer much needed mental and physical stimulation for cats, while providing safe places of refuge and security.
