I hven't had a chance to read the link but I do know cats like to feel secure and smaller and dark spaces do that for them.

cat in chairWe have 4 cats. they prefer chairs. They seem to get tired of boxes after a day or two. If I lay papers on the table or counter, they think they have to lay on them to hold them down for me.

I saw that article.  Quite interesting.  However, I don't ever wonder about what a cat thinks.  Not a cat whisperer or doing an episode of "My Cat From Hell".
