In relation to the vote incentive, I assure readers I did my customary amount of research into whether or not cats possess this particular evolutionary trait.

May as well look it up now.

Strangely my family has ever only had one cat who didn't turn into a homicidal maniac the minute he was in a box. The rest would scratch and bite at anything approaching the box, or jump out and attack things like they'd been stalking prey.

The cat who did enjoy boxes would sit there and stare at you. Offer him some food and he would sit up a little straighter, but wouldn't try to eat it til you lowered it in the box. Weirdest. Cat. Ever.

I think some cats might realize object permanence is a thing. Mine would sit and wait for you to bring out his favorite toy if you'd hidden it behind your head, under a blanket or in your pocket. He wouldn't accept new toys until a week or so of looking for the old one.

Though maybe it was because he could still smell the things, even if he couldn't see them. Likewise, that a new toy didn't have his scent on them...

The only indoor cat I had would wait til the box was emptied, jump into it then wonder where she was before jumping back out.. she had the memory of a goldfish at times though cause she would walk away, turn, and think it's a new box.

@VictorB So, what you're saying is that your cat was the feline reincarnation of George the Fish?

Heh, I'll have to try & get a box for my cat & see what she does...

I wonder when Aya's coming back.

@ DV: no, more like looking for a portal to a new world via box. but couldn't find it.

@ Agen: A bag works too. an open plastic bag was something my cat loved... and lusted... and hated as her curiosity would get it caught on her...

My cat likes boxes. A lot.
Like, he tried to bite me once when I tried to clean up Christmas.
Crazy cat.
Of course, this is the same cat that'll sit in the kitchen chair and smack you when you walk past.
