Each cat has preferences. Not all cats like sleeping or hiding in boxes.
Best Friends Animal Society cat specialist Samantha Bell calls cats "tree- and bush-dwellers."
Bush-dwelling cats are poised to pounce with all four paws on the ground. Tree-dwelling cats stalk from high elevations, like a jaguar scanning its woodland.
Bell suggests giving your cat bush-dwelling areas like cat boxes, tents, and beds and tree-dwelling spots like cat trees, shelving, and perches.

Due to their food chain position, cats are naturally curious. They are naturally curious and observant.
