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.

Did you know …?

Cardboard is insulating for cats!

When a cat burrows down into a box, the cardboard assists in maintaining the cat’s body temperature.  This is how cats maintain their “thermal neutral zone”; cats can more easily maintain their body temperature without having to expend a lot of precious energy.
