If you tell a cat there isn't enough space for him, he's guaranteed to see that as a challenge.

Cats are notorious for squeezing themselves into spaces where there really isn't room for them. If you've ever owned a cat, then you're familiar with their almost magical ability to fit themselves into places where they really shouldn't be. From squeezing into boxes that are just too small to pressing themselves into dresser drawers, cats seem drawn to these tight, challenging spaces.

These ten cats are no exception. You'll have to check out the unique positions these cats have sculpted themselves into. You will be impressed with their tenacity...

These sure are some determined cats - where there's a will, there's a way, after all.

One reason why cats love small spaces is that it makes them feel safe and secure. Consider giving your cat a few boxes to call his own, or buy a small enclosed cat bed so your cat can have a secure, quiet space. Providing your cat with small spaces to hide and sleep in can increase his comfort level, and is particularly valuable when you have a new or insecure cat in your home.

A cat with his own little places in your home is a happy cat.
