Cats are awesome and there is one thing they love most besides chasing birds and chilling in front of a fire. They are completely in love with boxes, especially the ones made out of cardboard.

Cardboard boxes reduce stress levels

But did you ever wonder why cats are crazy about cardboard boxes? In a recently published paper researchers discovered that these boxes reduce the stress levels of the cats. This is very important, because a high stress level can cause diseases easier to develop in cats.

Cats love the smell of cardboard

Why boxes you would say? Well, according to the researchers it probably has something to do with the smell of cardboard boxes and that it is easy to hide within a box. The last one is especially important when cats are confronted with new surroundings.

Cardboard boxes are ugly, but not all

There is one downside, cardboard boxes are not the most beautiful and design friendly objects to have lying around in your house. Fortunately there is a solution, the so-called krabhuis. It’s a neatly designed cardboard house for your cat, but with all the advantages of a normal cardboard box.
