You may be familiar with the phrase “curiosity killed the cat”. It’s a little morbid, but its has at least some truth to it – cats are curious.
Case in point, when a parcel recently arrived at our flat two of our cats were particularly interested in exploring the box. Sampson, as the picture shows, was eagerly sniffing around outside to see what this strange thing was. He enjoyed investigating all the new smells.
And what was in the box that Sampson was so eagerly smelling? That would be the other curious cat, Lola, who had decided the best way to explore this package would be to get inside it!
Whilst exploring this box wasn’t dangerous to our cats, sometimes kitty curiosity can be a bad thing. Many a cat has found itself stuck up a tree, or locked in a shed, or in other kinds of trouble as a result of their curiosity.
Are your cats curious? Have they ever got into trouble as a result of their curiosity?
