|There probably aren’t that many cats who have gotten themselves entangled somehow in a box spring but it has happened. It may not be the thing foremost on your mind but a few preventions can stop injury to your cat and even death.
Cats tend to get into box springs from underneath so the easiest deterrent is a piece of plywood laid down before you put the box spring on. For the less persistent cat, tack a sheet to the underneath of the box spring. It may be rare but, sometimes, the hidden dangers are the most worrisome.
