Hello and welcome to the forum. Flip the box springs over and attach a sturdy sheet of fabric over them in place of the gauzy covering. A heavy cotton sheet is usually effective. The cats can then go under the bed, but not get up into the box springs.

Dunno...
My cat would never run from me (nor any one else, even strangers unless they have a mean dog/animal with them) even with many under the bed access...

She'll be greeting me when I come home, greeting me when I come upstairs or if I am gone too long... my kitty will start looking for me. One thing she even loves doing... hanging out with us when the whole family gathers to watch TV. This kitty will not want to be "left out" of any activities at all... shes a bug but we love her.

Use multi-layered bedskirts... they'll look pretty.

Why do cats go under the bed?

Because you can't.

Our cat is nearly four years old and still likes to get under the bed. She isn't the most sociable cat in the world to begin with. she especially likes to hide under there when we have company or when my wife vacuums.

One time we had someone visit who brought their dogs with them. They are small yappy type dogs. Of course, the cat went to her favorite place. One dog caught a whiff and went chasing her under the bed, yapping the whole time.

Then I heard a loud HISSSSSS....MEOW!!!!!! The dog quickly emerged, producing a more whiny yapping, asking his master why his snout just got scratched.

Easiest solution to keep cats from under the bed? Stack a bunch of stuff under there so they can't get under it.

Yes, it will take some work, but then it will be done. Remember to use a heavy sheet, and attach firmly, leaving no gaps a cat can slip through. I'd recommend a glue gun, glue all the way around, then heavy staples on top of that.

Even easier - just put a fitted sheet on the underside of the box spring. Because it wraps around - it is unlikely to come off (or be hacked by the little monster).
