Any pet has its own habits and addictions. A special love is a kind of hide-and-seek game, which is so fond of gentle purrs. At the same time, one of the most attractive places is the master bed. Many people cannot understand why a cat hides under a blanket so often. There are actually several reasons for this behavior.
In search of comfort
Often, the desire to take refuge in a warm enclosed space is associated with cats with the search for peace and comfort. And since the blanket perfectly retains heat, the purr strives to quickly use the free “heater”, especially if her beloved owner, who has heated a cozy place, recently basked in bed.
Sense of security
In addition to warmth, under the covers the animal may seek banal privacy. Often this happens if there are children in the house who are persistent in expressing their feelings and wanting to play. For a cat, the space under the blanket becomes a truly safe and calm place where you can relax, relax and regain strength, especially if she does not have her own house or other secluded corner where she can hide.
The instinct of "nesting"
Often a place under the blanket is chosen by future mothers. If a cat meows anxiously and hides in a master's bed, this is a sure sign that the birth of babies is very close. In this case, it is necessary to prepare a nook for purr, arranging a cozy place in a box, basket or drawer, covering the bottom with something soft and pleasant to the touch. And in order for the animal to feel safe, it is advisable to put there a thing that has a master's smell (for example, an old T-shirt).
Sometimes cats hide under a blanket when they feel unwell. If the purr hides every now and then, it has become aggressive or lethargic and indifferent, it has got discharge from the eyes and nose, vomiting has opened or the stool has changed, it is necessary to show the animal to the veterinarian as soon as possible.
But more often than not, when a cat climbs under a blanket, the cat just wants to show its owner all its love and fully reward it for affection and care.
