Purr-fect playthings: Big cats like boxes too

Most pet cats like boxes. Some would even rather squeeze themselves into an impossibly small one than forfeit an opportunity to spend time in a cardboard container.

But what about really big cats?

A new video from Big Cat Rescue sanctuary in Tampa, Florida, proves that domestic cats aren't the only felines to enjoy quality time with cardboard: tigers, lions and leopards like boxes too.

They destroy the boxes. They tug at the boxes. And a caracal named Rusty just wants to play in his.

Watch the cats discover boxes below:
