All of these cats were rescued, many from abusive and neglectful backgrounds.
Some pet cats just can't get enough of cardboard boxes. They sleep in them, play in them and do their best to fit in them — no matter how small they are. But do lions and tiger love cardboard boxes as much as their domestic counterparts do?
The people at Florida sanctuary Big Cat Rescue (BCR) decided to find out. So they gave several of their feline charges their own cardboard boxes to play with — and lucky for us, the results were magical.
So it turns out cardboard boxes are a magnet for all cat species. Of course, considering the strength of these cats, the boxes didn't last too long — but that's half the fun, right? Watch below for the cats' full reaction to their latest toy.
Big Cat Rescue, one of the world’s largest accredited sanctuaries for exotic cats, is a leading advocate in ending the abuse of captive big cats and saving wild cats from extinction. They are home to about 80 lions, tigers, bobcats, cougars, servals and other species most of whom have been abandoned, abused, orphaned, saved from being turned into fur coats, or retired from performing acts.
