Why do cats love to hang out in boxes so much? It has something to do with being stone cold predators. And, a little anxiety.

I live in a 3 story house & because of all the windows & front an back door its alway cold even with the heat on so I put a big cardboard box on top of the cabinet in the kitchen so when sophie is downstairs she sleeps or just lays down in their and watches me cook & then lays on top of the stove when I'm done cuz its nice an warm for her.
I just gotta say, when we get a new box in the house it's like Christmas morning for my cat. He absolutely loves boxes. Especially new boxes! If only I could be as content and happy as that little jerk. Love him anyway.
I have a burning question! I make handmade cosmetics and today after making a batch of conditioner, I noticed that my introverted cat became suddenly very interested in me and wanted to follow me around and snuggle me. I use a cationic surfactant called behentrimonium methosulfate and came to the conclusion that cats are drawn to cationics (coincidence?), since it's common for lots of cats to be attracted to dryer sheets and laundry washed with fabric softener, they all contain cationics surfactants.
Why do cats get this catnip reaction from positively charge ions? What happens chemically? Does anyone know?
I had a cat that laid on top of me and almost crushed me. Sometimes it felt good, other times I thought I was gonna suffocate.
Everyone, please watch my tiny nature videos. There is no talking in them. Shhh!
My cats love sitting in cardboard boxes, but only briefly. After a short period of time it's as if they get bored with any particular box & won't go in it again. If I then put a new box on the floor, the same thing happens. I would have thought if the Kessler & Turner theory was correct, they wouldn't behave like this?
Also be sure to give your cats plenty of hugs. Your body temperature is normally 37˚C, which is within your cat's comfort range. By curling up with your cat, you can transfer some of your body heat to your furry friend.
If you wish to use this technique for keeping your cat warm, try to start them at a young age, to get them used to being handled. An older cat would plot your imminent demise.
My cat is half Norwegian Forest Cat, and he LOVES the snow, lays stretched out against the cold window in the winter time, and hides in the cold basement in the summer, barely ever going outside. He's a winter kitty 😺
(NWF have weather resistant fur and toe tufts to protect their toe beans. Bear (my cat) can't run around on hardwood floors in the winter because his toe tufts get so long he slips around!!)
a comfortable 24 degrees celcius?!? i knew that was hot even before i looked it up, but thats 75 degrees Fahrenheit. thats a crazy temperature to keep a house at. mine is 65 during the day and even lower than that at night or when no one is home
Every time someone talks about a Jaguar kitty hopping through the trees or roaming city's endangering Children, all I can imagine is a driverless, Jaguar F-Type driving through alleyways and stalking children.
My cat got really, really sick a long time ago. She had a pretty severe case of anemia (the vet even prepared us for her death after having her hospitalized for a week). We began noticing she was ill because she entered a box and didn't want to go out, she just stood there watching everything and breathing heavily.
I think I get it now, she was ridiculously weak, she probably thought she wouldn't be able to react to things properly as cats usually do and decided to retreat to a safe spot. She must've been suffering a lot.
Ps. If anyone cares, my cat had a miraculous recovery thanks to the care of the amazing vet, it has been over a year since then and she is as healthy as ever :)
The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
