Why Do Cats Do That? (Vol.5)

Happy #Caturday Tumblr! For the next several Saturdays, we’ll be trying to help you understand what’s up with your house cat.

As animals that were preyed upon, cats evolved to “not get caught” and in the wild, the cats that were the best at avoiding predators thrived. 

So, at your house today, Grizmo is an expert at squeezing into small spaces and seeking out and hiding in unconventional spots.

It also explains why she prefers a clean and odor free litter box: that’s less likely to give away her location to any predators that may be sniffing around nearby. 

Curious about cats? Check in with us every Saturday for some more #catfacts!
