Interestingly, it doesn’t seem to have anything to do with enclosed spaces.
An open-air basket with plenty of room to curl up, and what do we get? Three paws, one whole leg, a tail tip, and an ear all extended into the air. It’s a wonder he bothered keeping the fourth paw inside. Good thing he’s never going to go to an amusement park. He’d have a horrible time with that “Keep all paws inside the car at all times” thing.
However, as you can see, MM and Tuxie continue to regard Cape Odd and the Rose Cottage as strictly beneath contempt for real cats.
Well, that’s a little unfair. Tuxie will occasionally duck into one shelter or another, usually right after Maggie changes the straw and sprinkles some fresh catnip inside.
But he rarely stays long, and MM has, as far as we can tell, never even stuck her head inside either of them.
She does frequently spend the night sleeping in that little cave between the cinder blocks and the house. Yes, right in front of Cape Odd’s doorway.
Meezers are exceedingly contrary.
