Cats can sleep anywhere, and they do, literally, but there are certain types of places and containers that they enjoy more than others.

Once you find the one your cat seems to fit in best, you can add a lining or little pad to it so it will be more comfy for kitty.


Cats love to sleep in boxes, one box in particular is the shoe box, they get that nice snug feeling in a shoe box slightly smaller than what you think they would need.
