Oddest Places Cats Hide

Hide and Seek!

Our adorable cats are usually right by our side at every waking moment. But at times cats enjoy their space and may hide in unique places for some much-need downtime. We choose our favorite clever places our four-legged friends love to hide in.

Cat in the Box

The box you just brought home is an instant hit with your cat! Most cats don’t enjoy lounging in open spaces so this box is the perfect hideaway. If your kitty enjoys hiding in a box, try putting a cozy blanket at the bottom for added comfort. This way she can hide out and be kept warm all at the same time.

Under a Pillow

Cats are known to be the kings of trickery. Many times you can find your furry friend hiding under a soft cushion in your couch. Kitty thinks he’s never going to be discovered in his hiding spot. For the time being, he can enjoy his time in peace until family TV night begins!

Under the Covers

Let’s face it, your feline loves to lay in bed with you on a chilly winter morning. It shouldn't come as a surprise to you when you find your kitty nestled under your covers. As for the cat, he's hoping to hide long enough to catch just a few more Z's.

Under a Dresser

Cats love to feel safe and secure. Hiding under a dresser allows your furry friend to hide in a cave-like space in peace and quiet.

In a Dresser

Now this may one of the most bizarre places we have found cats hiding. There’s no better way to win a game of hide-and-seek then jumping into the middle of a dresser. We would never even think of looking there for our adorable friend! The cat wins this round.

In a Grocery Store Paper Bag

Cats eyes light up when you return from the grocery store. They are happy to see you, but they are secretly eyeing the paper bags you just brought home. After you unload your groceries, don’t be alarmed if you get a sudden surprise leaping out of a bag for a hug. Cats love to hide in paper bags because it accommodates their small physique.

You Can't See Me

Cats think they're sly when choosing a creative hiding spot. If you can’t find your kitty, a good place to look is under the couch. Tip to the cat: don’t follow the cat pictured above, try hiding your tail, too!

When I had Teddy we had our tub and shower replaced so there was no wall in the bathroom for a couple a days we had to shower at my grandma's house but Teddy went missing we searched everywhere for her but we couldn't find her we left food outside thinking she might have gotten scared of the workers in the house and ran outside but it was about 3 weeks and no sign of her still we were getting ready to put up missing posters and even put an ad in the paper and go to the humane socitey to look for her there but then after I finished making the poster and was ready to go to the copy store to make copies of it I heard meowing in the hallway I opened a drawer that is attched to the wall we have at least 10 drawers attached to the wall in the house that if you pull them out you can see inside the wall when I opened that one in the hallway Teddy jumped out she was really skinny and had lost alot of weight in those 3 weeks she had been hiding in the wall the whole time there was at least one more time where she went and hid there. Teddy also enjoyed climbing up in the dressers from under them even when the drawers were shut we would open them up and there was my little Teddy Bear hiding out. As for Shorty his strangest place ever to sleep was a dresser drawer I had cleared out but the drawer wasn't the strange part it was the fact that it was when I was in high school taking a child development class and we had to take home those robot babies for like a week well my robot doll was a girl we had to name them too so her name was Noelia, and the drawer was open 24/7 cause that was the only place I really had to put Noelia at night so at night when I heard crying it was like a real baby I had to get up and take care of her but everytime she cried at night Shorty would laydown on top of her face if she were a real baby he would have suffacated her but that was wierd that he did that.

When a hiding place is discovered, they search for a new hiding place. My cat has lots of hiding places that she ignores now.
