What is it about cats and boxes? It's the ultimate cat magnet, as reliable as a can opener, but with a longer lasting effect.
On the flip side, we humans seem to be almost as fascinated with our felines' fascination with boxes as the cats themselves are with these simple cardboard devices.
In honor of these magical cat traps, here are 25 cats who love boxes and look great in them (including my own Jazzy the rescue cat).
"Of all the expensive cat things my daddy bought me, this is my favourite..."

"My Jack in a box."
Sometimes, humans are so enthralled with their cats' love of the box that they go to extremes to accommodate their cats. Boxes take over the living room. Non-cat lovers can do nothing but observe and shake their heads, never comprehending the joy it brings us to see a kitty happy.
"Our Bo and Indi loved this box so much we put a throw in it to make it more comfortable!"

Do you think Malakai is disappointed that there's no chicken in that box?
