Big Cats Like Cardboard Boxes Too

Everyone knows house cats love to mess around with cardboard boxes -- they make great sleeping quarters, they're good for a scratch or a bite, and they make exciting rustling noises when moved. But do big cats (think lions, tigers, and leopards) like boxes too? Big Cat Rescue in Tampa shows us a series of adorable examples in this video.

Trivia fun: try to name the species of big cats you see. I didn't recognize what "Rusty" was, so I looked him up on BCR's website. (If you want a spoiler, he's a Caracal.)
