It doesn’t matter how many places you have in your home for your cat – there are always going to be more. For instance, maybe a cat wants to squeeze itself into a loaf pan that you’ve prepared for the oven. This is a problem for a few reasons.
The first one is that it makes that loaf pan dirty, and you have to wash it again. The second is that it teaches the cat there might be fun stuff up there on the kitchen counter. If you’re trying to make something special, you don’t want cats getting in your way.
Any Port in a Storm, Any Bed for a Tired Cat
One of the most famous feline facts out there is that cats can and will sleep anywhere they choose to lay down their fuzzy heads. This includes, apparently, a little girl's dollhouse, and the tiny four-poster bed that is inside the master bedroom. We can't really blame it – that cat looks tuckered out.
It's like after a night of fun with your friends, and you're all just on half couches and sleeping in dining room chairs and curled on the floor. Why the cat would choose this instead of a real chair or something like that is beyond us. Maybe it knows something.
A Purchase Gone to Waste
As we all know, cats love to sleep. It's been said that they sleep in one form or another for anywhere between twelve and sixteen hours of the day. They pick any soft surface or warm area to catch a catnap. And it's going to change every single time they need to get some shuteye, which means getting them a special bed is going to be a purchase that might not pan out the way you imagine it.
Like in this picture, where the cat has decided that it would rather sleep in a Chipotle bag than a big fluffy bed with room to stretch.
Sometimes You Need Some Privacy
It doesn't matter how many places you give your cat to sleep in – it will find one you didn't expect. In this picture, this fuzzy cat has decided to curl up for a nap inside a wok that is on top of the refrigerator. It seems to have the right size for this fuzzy friend, and you know cats love a circle.
This is also a bonus because it keeps the wok from getting greasy as it's up there out of the way. You'll still have to clean it, obviously. Cats walk around inside their litterbox. That's dirty.
Making the Best of a Bad Situation
If you've brought a pot to bed, it means one of two things. The first is that you just made some bomb mac and cheese and you want to combine all of life's best things – naps and pasta. The other option is you ate way too much pasta, and you brought the pot to bed in case it makes a second appearance.
No matter which one it is, you can bet that your cat will use it as a handy bed to cuddle up next to you. Why do cats love little areas like pots or boxes so much? Science should get on that.
