Why do cats crawl under blankets? — 1 Comment

  1. I have observed that there are “under cats” and “over cats”. Under cats like to get into small spaces and hide under blankes and piles of clothes. My family had a cat who liked to get made into the bed. When she heard the bedding being moved, she charged into the bedroom and waited for the sheets and blankets to cover her. She’d be a lump under the covers for hours, only coming out when people came home from school or work. My current cats are over cats. The older one will jump into a box, but only when it’s upright. She won’t go into one lying on its side. She also lets me put the blanket over her when she’s in bed with me, but only when I’m with her. If I try to cover her at any other time, she scoots. It’s always entertaining to have a mixture of under and over cats – it makes their play much more interesting.
