It’s a known fact that if you give a kid a toy, they’ll often have more fun playing with the cardboard box that the toy came in. Since cats act like little kids, don’t be surprised if you buy an expensive toy for your cat, only to watch your cat prefer the cardboard box it came in instead.

Since this frustrating experience hits so many cat owners, the latest Internet trend is to share pictures of their cats avoiding the expensive toys in favor of the free or cheap junk instead. If seeing someone else’s cat ignoring an expensive toy looks familiar to you, then you can appreciate the humor in cats driving their owners crazy.
