Cats Show They Can Squeeze Into Nearly Anything for a Nap


Is there anything grander than the ancient spectacle of cat in a box? On the basis of the “If I Fits I Sits” hashtag trend, maybe, yes, perhaps there is. And that new thing would be pictures of cats trying their hardest to squeeze into small spaces, inappropriate nooks, and objects that are clearly not meant to be used as cat furniture. Here’s the finest selection of felines embracing the movement on Instagram.

But of course, the barely tempered embers of a fire-pit make for a handy warmed outdoor cat bed.

My own cat, Mimosa, has this exact same toy. After playing with it once, she now ignores it — although at least this forward-thinking feline has been proactive about finding another use for the contraption.

Remember, kittens, footwear fashion can be a vain pursuit, and ill-fitting shoes will leave you only with bunions and blisters.

This ginger trooper scores big for showcasing a steely determination toward the art of #ififitsisits.

Five a day the feline way!

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about these two partners in cuteness. Excellent #ififitsisits work on display here.
