Cats don’t just like small spaces, they love them. From Amazon boxes to grocery bags to the tiny gap between the bottom of your couch and the floor. They’ll even curl up in a square of tape on the floor! But why is your cat so attracted to these small spaces?

The answer has to do with the security and protection that these places offer, and regardless of if they’re truly safe or not, it’s about how…

Guy Demonstrates The Method He Used To Train His Cat To Walk On A Leash

I once semi-successfully trained my cat to walk around my backyard on a leash- he would walk around okay for a while, and even climb trees here and there while tethered to me below. But you could tell he was holding back, and it only made him want to run away more when the leash was off.

My mission to leash my cat would have been more successful had I watched these videos by Doug Meyers of Berkeley, California, and then I could have taken my cat everywhere just like he does.

IKEA Donates Doll Beds For Shelter Cats, And It’s Just Too Adorable

Until recently, kitties at the Etobicoke Humane Society in Ontario would sleep on the “cold, hard floor” – well, not anymore, cause IKEA has just donated 10 doll beds for the cats and made a $300 contribution towards the brighter future of the shelter pets. “Our floors are easy to clean but not terribly comfortable to lay on. Now cats like Catsby and Frankie have beds of their own to curl up in,” the humane society posted on Tuesday.

IKEA doesn’t sell pet furniture as such, but some people discovered that their Duktig Doll Beds are…

Stray Cats Find Drain Pipe Holes And Now They Are Having The Time Of Their Life

A Japanese photographer named Nyan Kichi dedicates a good chunk of his time out and about on the streets, capturing the beauty of stray cats – and there’s one particular spot with drain pipe holes that he loves to go.

There, he can find loads of strays who treat the area with lots of pipe holes as their playground. See, those kitties don’t need fancy and expensive toys to have some fun.

But, if you think they would eventually get bored of jumping in and out of the holes – think again….

Catnip Ain’t the Only Plant That’ll Send Your Kitty to Blissville

The active ingredient in catnip that gives such pleasure to our kitties is nepetalactone. It doesn’t have much effect on other species, but cats go wild -or at least some cats do. If you’ve had multiple cats, you’ve probably noticed at least one that didn’t react to catnip at all. You have to feel sorry for those cats, while their housemates are enjoying a catnip-fueled high. However, there are some other substances, such as silver vine, Tatarian honeysuckle, and valerian root, that can stimulate cats. Molecular biologist Sebastian Bol performed an experiment to see how cats would…
