Lately I had this revelation about why cats possibly like cardboard boxes so much. I think it may be because they spend a lot of time in a room that has some of the same shapes as the box, only smaller! "Shit yes I now have my own room. This room is mine. It is to be treated with respect and if you try to enter it you will find my nails perforating your skin."

"While no one can say with certainty what goes on inside the feline mind, there are some theories:

They like the security of an enclosed space. A box resembles a cave and may make your cat feel secure knowing they are protected and, theoretically, cannot be attacked from behind.

Boxes are fun! Lots of cats seem especially playful in and around boxes. Cats enjoy jumping in and out of a box, pouncing, stalking and climbing atop boxes. Cats are little predators, and a box is a great spot from which to pounce on their prey, even if the prey is just a catnip mouse toy.

Boxes are cozy. Try putting a soft blanket in the bottom of your cat’s favorite box. The sides help retain the cat’s body heat making a comfy nest.

It’s instinctive. When was the last time you saw your cat sleeping in the middle of a wide-open space? Cats seem to instinctively prefer smaller, more confined spaces." <- so you could be onto something. ; P

Challenge accepted! My sister's cat seems quite content sleeping in a vulnerable position in the open.

I do agree with the cave/security/hunting theory though, just wanted an excuse to post that picture.
