Ragdoll Cats’ Love Affair With Boxes Captured in These Adorable Pictures

When it comes to Ragdoll cat pictures, you’ve gotta include some of Ragdoll cats in boxes.  These furry felines seem to have an irresistible urge to climb inside any box they can find, no matter how big or small. Whether it’s a shoebox, a cardboard box, or even a laundry basket.

Their love affair with boxes knows no bounds, as they squeeze their fluffy bodies into tight spaces, showcasing their flexibility and determination. The sheer delight on their faces is evident as they explore their makeshift fortresses, peeking out with wide-eyed curiosity. These adorable pictures capture the unique bond between Ragdoll cats and boxes, reminding us of their playful nature and their ability to find joy in the simplest of things.

Thanks to all the Floppycats readers that contributed photos of their kitties for this post:

Zoey is the box queen. Every time my husband and I get something new shipped to us in the mail, she’s right there, waiting for us to empty the box enough for her to jump right in. She seems to enjoy it even more if it has nice cushy packing material inside. The look she’s giving me in the photo included is something like, “This is my box now mom, don’t make me get out! Don’t throw it away!”

Orange cats are more likely to be males than females, but are they the airheaded species of the feline world? Many hilarious videos of cat antics can be credited to fuzzy, ginger kitties, but can the urban legends be true? Can their sweet, affectionate, and simple nature be attributed to genes?
