Cats love being inside things, boxes, tubes, in fact, anything that makes them feel secure from an attack on a few sides is OK by them. But one thing I am seeing more and more from other people’s Caturday posts is that cats love to sleep inside sinks! This strange behaviour seems to be limited to cats at the moment, but I am sure a few dogs have tried to pull it off, but no dog would ever make being in a sink look this good…

2 – If you are going to stick with the square sinks, I will be a square cat!
