Cats’ tendency to hide under beds

Do you ever wonder why your feline friend loves to hide under the bed? It’s a common behavior among cats, and there are a few reasons why they may seek out this cozy hiding spot.

One reason cats love to hide under beds is that it provides them with a sense of security. In the wild, cats are both predators and prey, so having a safe and secluded spot to retreat to can help them feel safe and protected.

Another reason cats may hide under beds is that it allows them to observe their surroundings without being seen. Cats are natural hunters, and hiding under the bed gives them the perfect vantage point to watch for any potential prey or threats.

If your cat is hiding under the bed more than usual, it could be a sign that they are feeling stressed or anxious. Make sure to provide plenty of enrichment and playtime to help alleviate their stress and make them feel more secure.

So next time you see your cat dart under the bed, remember that it’s just their natural instinct at work. Embrace their need for a hiding spot and make sure to create a safe and comfortable environment for them to thrive in.
